NATIONAL HOME WARRANTY DAY
National Home Warranty Day on February 10th reminds us to protect the vital appliances and components of our homes.
Our homes are filled with complex appliances, technology, and other components that over time can and do wear out. At any given time, one or more of our appliances can break down. When the washing machine breaks down, not only is it inconvenient, but it can be expensive. Often, another item is not far behind. Will it be the hot water heater next? Or, just in time for summer, will the central air go kaput? Each repair adds up.
A home warranty, unlike home owner’s insurance, covers repair or replacement of these items that break down due to normal wear and tear. Consider how many appliances and systems our homes require these days and protect your investments.
- HVAC System
- Hot Water Heater
- Garage Door Openers
There are different types of home warranties, too. Depending on your needs, home warranties can cover a single appliance or an entire system.

Home Warranty FAQ
Q. Is a home warranty insurance?
A. No. A home warranty is different from insurance. A home warranty covers the costs of service, repair, and replacement of specific appliances or home systems due to normal wear and tear. Homeowners insurance is triggered when fire, water, or other unexpected event damages the home or items in the home.
Q. Do all home warranty companies cover the same things?
A. No. Some companies may specialize in home systems such as electrical, HVAC or security systems while others focus on appliances.
