Why a Home Warranty is Worth it

The heater breaks in the middle of the first snow-filled cold front of the year, and the next day, you wake up to a broken refrigerator. It seems that when one thing breaks, it triggers a chain reaction. According to US News, homeowners spend an average of one to four percent of the home’s value annually on maintenance and repairs. Repairs to appliances and household systems are not covered under homeowner’s insurance, and the cost can add up. Additionally, as a house ages, the need for repairs and replacements increases, so what is a homeowner supposed to do? The answer is simple: Invest in a home warranty. Here are just a few reasons why a TotalProtect Home Warranty is worth it.

Protect your Home. Protect your Wallet

Unexpected expenses shouldn’t burden your budget. While having a personal finance emergency fund is a good idea, the hope is that you will never have to reach into it. If your home systems or appliances break, a home warranty will cover the expenses, providing you with qualified service technicians to get the job done right.

A home warranty also covers plumbing systems, electrical systems, central air conditioning and heating systems, and everything in between.

Your Feedback Makes a Difference

It is not just the services we provide that make the difference. TotalProtect is dedicated to you as homeowners. Your reviews determine how we assign work to providers, ensuring the best possible care.

It is not just about the ability to place a claim 24/7, or the 6-month workmanship guarantee. It is also about the tools we provide – maintenance checklists, tips to extend the life of appliances, and Appliance Buyline for the best discounts from top brands.

Don’t let the unexpected expenses stress you out. A TotalProtect Home Warranty can save you time, energy, and most importantly, money; which is why a home warranty is worth it.
