3 Things to Know About a Home Warranty

by Fidelity National Home Warranty

February 10 is National Home Warranty Day. This day was created by home warranty company 2-10 HBW (2-10.com) in 2016. The purpose of Home Warranty day is to remind homeowners how having a home warranty can protect their home’s valuable systems and appliances. Here are 3 things to know about a home warranty.

1. A home warranty is different than home insurance. The warranty covers the costs of service, repair, and/or replacement of specific appliances or systems due to normal wear and tear. Your home insurance will take over for damage or loss due to fire, water, or other unexpected event damages to your home.

2. Today’s houses are full of complex appliances and technology. These systems can stop working anytime- unexpected repairs can wreak havoc on your budget.

3. A home warranty is usually a one-year contract. It covers the appliances and systems you use every day. This includes your washing machine, dryer, refrigerator, stove, HVAC system, hot water heater, plumbing systems, and much more.
