Home Warranty and Electrical Parts

Home Warranties and What They Do and Don’t Cover – I highly recommend home inspections before a prospective buyer proceeds with the purchase of a home so that the condition of the home and the important system components have been identified and addressed 0if needed before the home purchase.


Will a Home Warranty Cover Loose Outlets?

Home Wiring Question: My electrical outlets are loose (meaning nothing I plug stays in).
I have a home warranty plan that covers outlet failure.
I was wondering if this will cover the repair of a loose outlet.

Background: Anthony, a Homeowner from Irvine California

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your home electrical question Anthony.
Anthony, that’s a great question.

I would think that outlet failure would refer to the availability of electrical power to the outlet.
What you are referring to is the tension strength of the outlet which may be considered normal wear and tare, but that is speculation which may depend on the age of the home etc..
