Home Warranties

Home warranties are very important. It can protect from problems that can occur in the future. A home warranty could cover your heating system, air conditioning system, plumbing and electrical system. Prior to purchasing any home warranty you should determine what is covered under the plan. Because all plans differ it is best to know up front what coverage you have. Coverage varies from state to state and from policy to policy so be certain to ask to see a sample copy of a policy before you commit.
