Home Warranty

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 Cinch home protection plan 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’s systems or appliances break, a home protection plan will cover the expenses as well as providing you with qualified service technicians to get the job done right. And plans can cover just your home’s appliances, such as clothes washers and dryers, ovens, refrigerators, etc., just its major built-in systems, such as electrical, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning, or both at the same time.
