Take a look at these helpful recommendations from the Better Business Bureau before purchasing a home warranty. Set yourself up for success by:
- Understanding the coverage
- Knowing Claim process
- Learning how to report a claim
- Researching the service provider
- Knowing your rights
Understand the coverage. A home warranty typically offers limited coverage and materials for specific parts of the home like windows, plumbing, electrical systems, heat and air conditioning. Make sure you understand everything you need to do in order to ensure your warranty is not voided (for instance, not changing the filter regularly may void the furnace’s warranty). Know what the coverage includes and for how long.
