Who would have thought that the dishwasher has feelings? You buy a home thinking you have all the appliances you need, but soon come to find out that the dishwasher is missing its old owner and does not want to work with you? Don’t laugh, this could happen! And that’s when the home warranty plan comes into play.
A home warranty typically provides coverage for the repair or replacement of major home systems and appliances that have failed due to normal wear and tear. The coverage typically includes things like heating and cooling systems, electrical and plumbing systems, water heaters, kitchen appliances, and more.
The specific items covered can vary depending on the provider and plan selected. Some home warranty plans may also offer optional coverage for items like swimming pools, spas, and other specialty items.
It's important to note that home warranties are not the same as homeowners insurance, which covers damage to the structure of the home and personal belongings due to unexpected events like natural disasters, theft, or vandalism.
