Home Warranty in Alabama

If the condenser unit of your air conditioning system goes out, do you have the $3,000 you will need to replace it? What if the whirlpool tub in the master bath stops working? Many Alabama residents are finding that coverage by home warranties gives them invaluable peace of mind in helping with the costs of unexpected homeowner expenses.

A basic home warranty plan typically covers a broad range of household systems and appliances, ranging from sump pumps to ceiling fans. If you also have a pool or central vacuum that you want to be included in the coverage, an enhanced plan will suit your needs. In terms of home repairs, paying a small premium per year could potentially save you thousands in the long run.

As an informed consumer, there are several things you should do as you are checking into home warranties. First, know what is covered. Experts recommend choosing at least three different companies and comparing their plans. The basic plan offered by one provider may cover the water heater, but not the septic system. A similar plan offered by another company could cover both. Read the coverage provisions and be aware of what each includes before making a decision. Second, understand the limits each home warranty company places on specific systems. Coverage may be limited to a specific dollar amount depending on the system or appliance. Third, you may need to pay for additional coverage if you want things such as your pool or the garage door opener covered under the warranty. Home systems that are more expensive to repair or replace generally cost extra to be included in the warranty. Be informed and understand the coverage your plan provides.

Who should consider home warranties as essential? First-time home buyers don?t usually have extra financial resources to take care of unplanned costs, so spending a small amount per year for home protection makes sense. For a person selling a home in a competitive market, providing a home warranty in the package could be the key to making a quick sale. And for owners of older homes, placing appliances and systems under coverage may defray expenses significantly. There are home warranty companies that can meet the needs of just about every homeowner in Alabama.
