Sign-up for H2O Select® Water Heater Warranty
At Berkeley Electric Cooperative, we know that the last thing you want to worry about is your water heater which is why we offer the H2O Select® Water Heater Warranty.
The warranty covers any existing electric water heater you have in your home, as well as parts and labor for the water heater, heating elements and thermostat. And although it does not cover plumbing or leaking pipes, it does cover complete replacement of a leaking tank.
As of 2016, the cost of the warranty increased from $5 to $7 per month on a 50-gallon tank and from $5 to $11 per month on an 80-gallon tank due to rising electric water heater costs brought on by new government efficiency standards.
Members who have been on the program for less than five years can finish their contract at the original $5 monthly rate. Members who have been on the plan longer than five years will see the increased cost reflected in the February 2016 billing cycle.
Participants for more than five years can discontinue the warranty at any time. Members over the five-year term will be changed to $7 per month per water heater, unless the member notifies the co-op that he or she wants the 80-gallon warranty.
Members with 80-gallon tanks may elect to warranty the replacement of the tank for $11 per month per water heater. New 80-gallon tanks will require the installation of a load-management switch.
After signing up, there will be a 30-day waiting period before a claim can be made. The minimum contract length is five years. Please contact your local district office for full details or send us an e-mail.
