Home warranties are contracts between homeowners and warranty companies that cover specific parts of a home, such as repairs or replacements on systems and appliances due to normal use. You need a home warranty if you want to avoid many of the unexpected expenses of home ownership.

Home warranties usually provide discounted repair and replacement service on a home’s major components. These typically include electrical systems, plumbing systems, heating and cooling systems, the washer and dryer, and kitchen appliances such as the oven, range, and garbage disposal.

Not all home warranties are the same, so be sure you understand what your home warranty does and does not cover. Have realistic expectations because no home warranty covers everything. You may not have chosen coverage for a specific item when you bought your warranty, or coverage may not have been an available option. Despite your best efforts, some unexpected expenses are unavoidable.

For items to be covered under a home warranty, you must also make sure they receive routine maintenance. Unless you are buying a new home, it is a good idea to ask your home inspector to check that warranty items have been properly maintained.

Finally, make sure you understand that a home warranty is NOT the same thing as homeowner’s insurance. Homeowner’s insurance covers damages and losses to a home and its contents, as well as liability coverage for accidents in the home or on the property and should be purchased separately.
