How to protect your home and wallet at the same time


As a savvy homeowner, you’re probably always keeping an eye out for ways that you can save money. Owning a home is expensive, so it’s only fiscally responsible that you cut back on spending where it’s possible.

Luckily for you, there’s a simple way that you can protect your wallet while also benefiting your home. Here’s what you need to know about how a service plan from TotalProtect can help your family.



Protect your home
You may think your home is protected. You have a security system and insurance, so what more do you need? This is a common misconception, as your homeowners insurance doesn’t cover the appliance breakdowns that result from daily wear and tear. Luckily, with a TotalProtect Home Warranty, these problems will be covered.

What’s even better is that you can extend coverage beyond just your appliances. In addition to standard items like your fridge, stove, washer, dryer and microwave, you can choose to protect your heating or air conditioning system, plumbing, gas and water lines, swimming pool and more. TotalProtect offers coverage on 20 different items around your home.

Safeguard your budget
This type of protection for your house also affects your budget. Even a little repair on your fridge, furnace or other appliance can put a serious dent in your wallet. When it comes to larger problems with big-ticket items, the repair costs are generally too high for comfort, and you’ll end up paying out-of-pocket if you don’t have a home warranty. With TotalProtect, you’ll be spared these expensive bills, and you’ll just pay your low deductible instead.

Don’t worry about getting shoddy repairs either. TotalProtect’s service partners are all pre-screened for quality.

Customized to your family
No two families are the same, and that’s why a one-size-fits-all home warranty isn’t effective. When you purchase a home warranty from TotalProtect, you’ll be able to choose the coverage plan, deductible and premium that’s realistic to your budget.

The bottom line is that when you protect your home with a TotalProtect warranty, you’re putting yourself in a position to weather any number of breakdowns with minimal stress. You can place claims online anytime. They’ll get a service technician to diagnose your problem and figure out whether the appliance should be repaired or replaced. You pay your deductible and it’s good to go!
