Home warranty and protection plans ensure that costly repairs and replacements of common household items don’t empty your bank account. That’s because repairs and replacements of items that are covered by a home warranty plan don’t cost you anything to repair. These plans can cover a wide variety of items in your home. Many plans cover standard items, while others let you pick and choose the specific things or systems you want covered. The standard contract term is one year, but can be extended indefinitely.
Some of the most expensive things in a home are the systems like air conditioning and plumbing. Repairs for those systems can cost thousands of dollars and not having them is not an option.
Some of the systems that are covered by a home warranty plan include:
Your cooling and heating systems aren’t the only costly items in your home that can break your bank to replace or repair. Most homes have several appliances that cost thousands of dollars. Make sure you don’t have to go days without a refrigerator or microwave with an appliance home warranty plan.
Some examples of appliances that are covered by a home warranty are:
There are many other things that a home warranty can cover as well as your standard systems and appliances. One common add-on to coverage is the roof. Roofs need to be replaced and maintained every 10 to 15 years and they can be very costly to repair. Another common addition is pools and spas. Over time, pools can get cracks and components can break down. A home warranty plan can make sure they stay up and running all year. Some additional components that many homeowners choose to include in their home warranty plan are well pumps, septic systems, and water softeners.
So stop worrying about repair and replacement costs and enroll in a home warranty plan that’s right for you today. You’ll be glad you did the next time your A/C system needs to be replaced or your refrigerator needs repair.
