Why Get a Home Warranty Plan?

Considering getting a home warranty? Here are six reasons you may say yes.

  1. A home warranty can provide peace of mind. Imagine you just moved in and your garage door stops working, your kitchen sink begins to leak or you come home from winter vacation to a heating system that won’t turn on. When things go wrong, a home warranty company will do the heavy lifting.
  2. It saves you time. If you have a warranty, you won’t have to spend hours researching solutions on YouTube and trying unsuccessfully to fix the problem yourself.
  3. Nearly like having a concierge. A home warranty is especially a good idea to obtain a home warranty if you’re a first-time home buyer with no experience maintaining a home.
  4. You can kick up your feet for a whole year and focus on unpacking and decorating. The policies are prepaid for a year in advance, at which time they can be renewed by the homeowner at a slightly higher fee.
  5. You don’t have to research service providers. If an appliance or system that is covered breaks, the homeowner calls their warranty company. Many companies also offer online forms. The warranty company will have a service provider in their network call you to schedule an appointment. The provider fixes the problem. The homeowner pays a small service fee for the visit (usually less than $100).
  6. Appliance replacement offer. When placing a service request for a covered appliance, the homeowner has the option to choose the Appliance Replacement Offer and 2-10 HBW will provide a check for $100 that can be combined with the money saved on the service fee, and apply that towards a brand new appliance of their choice from any retailer.
