Benefits of a Home Warranty

Warranty

A home warranty is a popular option for homeowners wanting to avoid unexpected expenses related to faulty home system components and appliances. There are several benefits of a home warranty.

Benefits of a Home Warranty

A home warranty is good for homeowners in these situations

1. You have appliances that are getting old

2. Your house is 5+ years old.

  • You do not have time and patience to get the repair done on your own.

  • You do not have a trusted contractor and don’t want to go through the process of calling and screening your own

3.You do not have a cash cushion to handle costly repairs. Imagine your air conditioner or heating unit breaks down and you need to replace the old unit. It may cost anywhere from $6,000 to $14,000 to replace. If you have an agreement, it would be the warranty provider’s responsibility to replace the unit.

  • You are buying a home for the first time.

  • New construction. The workmanship of the home construction, materials used and performance of major systems such as the plumbing, electrical and HVAC are all covered under these types of home warranty services.

Home Warranty Benefits include:

  • Cash flow protection of unexpected repairs
