What is home warranty and why is it so important? Homeowners may not realize what home warranty programs offer – from plumbing, home heating, electrical, and appliances, these programs offer coverage for your most expensive items. Repairing these household items can be pricey, but for a smaller expense, home warranty coverage can help you pay less out of pocket.
Here are four items to consider for home warranty coverage:
Refrigerators. There’s nothing a homeowner loves more than a high-end fridge to add a final touch to the kitchen, but what they may not realize is the expensive repair costs. A motor replacement can leave you at least $2,000 short.
TVs. Do you entertain often or have kids that run around the home? It’s easy for an LED/LCD TV to become damaged, and the cost of repairing can range from $1,500 to $3,000 (depending on the size). With that being said, your best bet is to get it covered from the moment you bring it home.
Washers/Dryers. From water valves to motors and heater coils, washer/dryer breakdowns happen. This is another expense to add to your long list, especially if you wash often or overload the machine. Be gentle with your washer/dryer, but get it covered as well.
Air Conditioners. Let’s say your AC breaks down and it costs thousands of dollars to repair. Having home warranty means a company will cover the expense, which also means you won’t have to pay more out of pocket than you can afford. Plus, they will repair it themselves!
If you’re still not sure home warranty is worth the cost, ask yourself this: which household items can I absolutely not live without if they were to break down? Write a short list and consider home warranty for those items.
