How to Pick the Best Home Warranty for You

Having a home warranty to cover the major appliances and systems in your house can provide you with coverage that homeowners insurance may not. However, with so many options available, choosing a warranty plan can seem to be a confusing process. If you’re in the market for a plan to give you additional peace of mind, take a moment to consider the points listed here. These tips can help you make the right decision for yourself and your property.

Think About What You Need to Have Protected

A home warranty can provide repair or replacement for items such as your washing machine, refrigerator, furnace, sewer lines or water heater. Unlike many homeowners insurance policies, warranty plans may cover repairs or replacements that are not related to a natural disaster or theft. As such, it’s wise to think about what items need protection before enrolling in coverage.

For example, there is a lower probability that appliances less than five years old will require fixing or replacing. Additionally, new items may already be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. To keep your costs more affordable, you can buy only protection for systems or items that are at a reasonable risk of failing.
