So, what is a home warranty? Simply put, a home warranty is a yearly service contract that protects specific home systems and appliances. Imagine you discover water leaking out of your dishwasher onto the kitchen floor. When a breakdown like this happens to your dishwasher and it is covered by a home warranty plan, the home warranty company can repair or replace it.
Home warranties protect systems such as heating, air conditioning, and plumbing. The can also cover appliances including your dishwasher, oven, washer/dryer, refrigerator, and more. When covered items break down, your home warranty company is there to take care of diagnosing the issue and repairing or replacing the items.
