Your home’s major systems – electrical, plumbing, HVAC – are expensive to repair or replace. According to the professionals at HomeLife Warranty Protection, the same is true for major appliances such as the dishwasher and kitchen refrigerator. In the following question-and-answer session, representatives explain the benefits of a preventative maintenance plan combined with a home warranty.
Q: What is the difference between a home warranty and preventative maintenance plan?
HomeLife Warranty Protection: A home warranty helps supplement expenses relating to the repair or replacement of systems in your home due to normal wear and tear. A preventative maintenance plan ensures that these systems have been properly maintained and serviced on a regular and recurring basis.
Q: How are the two related?
HomeLife Warranty Protection: A home maintenance agreement through a trusted service provider ensures a synergistic relationship with home warranty protection that enhances the value proposition of both services. Just like a “hand in glove”, the home warranty works great when systems have been regularly maintained. So a home preventative maintenance plan takes care of recurring maintenance and the home warranty takes care of the sudden breakdowns on covered items. Much like an automobile warranty, you have to get the oil and air filters changed, and the warranty will pick up the stuff that breaks.
