Some of the things that could damage or disable a hot water heater are corrosion buildup at the pipe connections/valves, and a restricted or compromised energy supply.
Does homeowners insurance cover hot water heaters?
While your homeowners insurance may cover the damage from water heaters, it will likely not cover the repair or replacement of the appliance itself. Regardless, it’s always smart to check with your home warranty company before scheduling a repair.
