Home Warranty in Alaska

Many first-time homeowners in Alaska are finding that home warranties save them thousands of dollars in repair and replacement costs over an extended period. For example, a water pipe repair job that could cost over $3,000 to fix may cost them less than $500 if they have prior coverage. Or instead of paying full price to fix the dishwasher, they pay a small service fee and the rest of the cost is covered with their annual premium. Having coverage on their home may be a very wise choice for Alaska residents.

Basic home warranties generally cover systems such as heating and electrical system components, plumbing, dishwasher, and garbage disposal, to name just a few. Coverage on the septic system or garage door opener may require an enhanced plan, which home warranty companies also offer.

Experts recommend taking three basic steps before deciding which Home Warranty company is right for you. First, choose at least three businesses with good reviews, and read up on the services each provides. Not all home warranty companies are created equal, and not all of them cover the same potential repairs in your home. Choose the plan that best fits your needs. Second, understand the limits placed upon each potential repair. Companies may pay up to a set amount on single repairs. Read the fine print to determine how much they will pay for costs. Third, be aware that you may be required to pay a little more for items that will be more expensive to repair or replace, such as a well pump or central vacuum. These steps will help to ensure that you purchase the home warranty coverage that will be best for you.

Although being a homeowner in Alaska can be costly, the coverage offered from home warranties can help offset the costs and free up money to do other things.
