Why Warranty

A home warranty is a yearly protection plan for your home’s systems and appliances. We spend about two-thirds of our time in our homes, and over time, the systems and appliances we rely on most will inevitably break down—like your heating and AC system, refrigerator, water heater, and washer/dryer. But when you warranty, you can look on the bright side because your covered items are protected.

Your home warranty covers the things in your home that you and your family rely on most, like the refrigerator, dishwasher, heating and AC systems, and water heater. Life gets frustrating when these types of items stop working and interrupt your day. But a home warranty provides peace of mind because when covered systems and appliances inevitably break down, you’ve got a plan

Home warranties offer coverage for the systems and appliances you rely on most, so you can protect your budget when unexpected breakdowns occur. They also come with maintenance services and member discounts. Think of having a home warranty as peace of mind for your home and lifestyle.

Doesn't homeowners insurance cover breakdowns? Not necessarily. Homeowners insurance covers what might happen to your home, like damage from flooding or storms. Home warranties cover what will inevitably happen to your home, like system and appliance breakdowns due to normal wear and tear.
