Curious if a home warranty is right for you? We’ve answered a few questions you may have below!  

What is a home warranty? 

A home warranty is an annual service agreement that provides coverage for the repair or replacement of systems and appliances when they malfunction or break down due to normal wear and tear.  

Home warranty coverage and home insurance, while both important, are very different things. Your mortgage lender will require you to have homeowners insurance if you carry a balance on your home loan. Home insurance claims usually involve items such as water damage, broken windows, torn roofs or theft from a break-in. 

A home warranty, on the other hand, is a completely optional coverage plan that can help you repair or even replace appliances and systems in your home that you use daily. * 

While home insurance is there for the worst-case scenarios that might happen, a home warranty is there for the unexpected things that will definitely happen at some point, especially as your home’s systems and appliances age and require more maintenance.

  1. When a covered item breaks down, you can request service online or by phone and the preset deductible is collected. 

  1. Cinch will find a pre-screened service pro to diagnose and remedy the problem. If it can’t be repaired, it could be replaced. *  

  1. You can relax because Cinch helps pay the bill and the covered repair is guaranteed for 180 days. It’s that simple.  

What is the cost of a Cinch home warranty?  

Cinch has annual warranty plans that start as low as $24.99 a month with a deductible of $150. Click here to get a quote.* 

How can a home warranty reduce your costs?  

Homeowners can spend an average of one to four percent of a home’s value annually on maintenance and repairs. Repairs to appliances and household systems are not covered under homeowners insurance, and the cost can add up. Additionally, as a house ages, the need for repairs and replacements increases. 

Unexpected expenses shouldn’t burden your budget. If your home’s systems or appliances break, a home warranty can help cover the expenses as well as provide you with qualified service technicians to get the job done right.  

How does the homeowners insurance deductible reimbursement work? 

When you pay a deductible on your homeowners insurance claim, any PEMCO customer – even if you don’t have PEMCO’s homeowners insurance – can simply submit proof and get up to $1,000 of the deductible reimbursed if they have the Cinch Complete Home Plan (one reimbursement per year). 2,3 

Is a home warranty right for me?  

When things like your air conditioning or refrigerator break down, it can be hard to know who you can trust and how expensive it’s going to be. With a Cinch home warranty, you can help protect your budget and be sure that your repair or replacement is being taken care of by someone you trust.  

A home warranty is a smart investment for many homeowners. This coverage may be right for you if: 

  • You just moved or are considering moving.  

  • You’re selling your home.  

  • You’re busy and a breakage could throw off your whole day, week or even year.  

  • You’ve purchased an older or a newly constructed home with limited information.  

  • You aren’t handy and have no immediate resources available. 

If you currently own a home or are thinking of purchasing one, a home warranty can help protect your investment, alleviate unnecessary stress, and saves your wallet from the unpredictable.
