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. If you purchased a home warranty that includes coverage for your dishwasher, the home warranty can cover its repair or replacement.
Typically, home warranties can cover systems such as heating, air conditioning, and plumbing. Covered appliances can include the dishwasher, oven, washer/dryer, refrigerator and more. When a breakdown occurs to these or any other items covered under the contract, the home warranty company can repair or replace them.
