What is a Home Warranty?
Home warranties, also known as service contracts, allow homeowners to pay an annual fee for repair and replacement service of covered appliances and systems. These contracts protect homeowners from the high cost of unexpected appliance breakdowns and system failures. With a home warranty, you’ll be covered whether your refrigerator stops running or your plumbing stops up and that can save you both money and frustration.*
Home warranties are service contracts that promise prompt, effective service for problems with your covered home appliances and systems. They offer protection not just for your home, but for your budget and time.**
How Home Warranties Work
Home systems and appliances can break down when you least expect it and often, when your budget isn’t ready for it. A home warranty offers peace of mind. With a home warranty, you can know that even when the unexpected happens, you’ll be taken care of by trusted home repair professionals.
With a home warranty, your home’s most important appliances and systems will be covered, provided they are maintained and in good working order at the start of your contract.* You’ll pay your contract fee annually and enjoy repair and replacement service for essential home systems and appliances for this low annual fee plus an affordable service call fee for each repair or replacement.***
How Home Warranties Help Homeowners
Your systems and appliances may be in good working order today, but sooner or later, everything wears out. Even with perfect maintenance, nothing lasts forever.
When your system or appliance breaks down, you could spend hundreds or thousands to repair or replace it, potentially causing a serious financial setback. Or, you can have it covered by your home warranty for just the cost of a service call.*
With these predictable costs, a home warranty service contract allows you to control the cost of home repairs. Rather than spending money on surprise repairs or replacements of systems and appliances, you can rest easy knowing that it’s all taken care of with your annual service contract fee and low cost service call fee.*
Homeowners also benefit from the peace of mind offered by a home warranty. You can feel confident about your home’s systems and appliances, as you won’t need to worry about them if they happen to break down or need replacement.***
