Customers of New York state's retail energy suppliers can now have industry-leading home protection plans as part of their electric or gas service

Boca Raton, FL (April 13, 2022)Cinch Home Services (Cinch), the leading home service solutions provider in the utility space, has recently partnered with several trusted energy service companies to deliver value-added solutions that meet customer needs and provide products that assist these companies in fulfilling state regulatory requirements. Through partnerships with Cinch, customers of New York state’s retail energy suppliers can now have industry-leading home protection plans as part of their electric or gas service. 

In response to a growing demand for consumer protection against home appliance/system malfunction or damage, Cinch developed a portfolio of turnkey solutions that assists energy and service companies in meeting their New York State Public Service Commission’s (PSC) regulatory requirements. These home warranty products simplify home management for utility customers and provide peace of mind through seamless access to Cinch’s wide assortment of expert services and award-winning customer service. 

“At Cinch, we have a deep understanding of the complex marketplace dynamics in which our energy partners operate,” said Steve Upshaw, Cinch CEO. “This is why we offer solutions that companies can use to help satisfy changing regulatory requirements, while also addressing the everyday maintenance needs of homeowners. We look forward helping these partners deliver peace of mind for their customers through Cinch products and services.”

A home warranty product’s value extends beyond just repairs. Cinch solutions offer utility customers with savings over time while helping them reduce their overall consumer carbon footprint, by ensuring home systems are running efficiently. According to EPA Energy Star, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems make up as much as 50 percent of all home energy use. With neglect and improper care leading to lowered efficiency and higher energy bills - or costly system failures - expert preventative maintenance is a vital step that will help homeowners’ wallets in the long run.
