Home Systems Protection

Enhanced Coverage for Today’s Homeowner Needs

Homeowners Face New Challenges

Advancements in technology are wonderful and make our lives easier in so many ways, but when comfort and convenience you’ve grown accustomed to breaks down, it can be quite expensive to repair or replace. If you’re like most homeowners, you’re spending more on appliances and electronics to run your home, but how do you manage the cost to fix these items should they stop working? Home Systems Protection, a new enhancement to our homeowners insurance, offers a unique solution.

Warranties, Service Contracts Fall Short

Warranties and service contracts, intended for everyday maintenance, offer very limited coverage. Home Systems Protection provides coverage for larger losses including:

  • Loss of use resulting in additional living expenses
  • Spoilage of perishable goods resulting from a home system breakdown
  • When replacement is required, up to 50% more may be paid if the replacement equipment is better for the environment, safer, or more energy/water efficient than the equipment being replaced

Protection That Provides Peace of Mind

Today’s home equipment contains fragile circuitry highly prone to breakdown. For just pennies a day, Home Systems Protection can be included in the homeowners’ insurance package to provide peace of mind and to leave more hard earned money for enjoyment instead of uncovered losses.
