What's the coverage?

Homeowners depend on the comfort, convenience and security their home systems and equipment provide. Most assume they’re protected by insurance, warranties or service contracts on this equipment. But, chances are they’re not. And a breakdown can cost the homeowner several thousands of dollars or more.

With Home Systems Protection, your customer will be covered for a wide range of equipment, including loss of use and related spoilage losses. In addition to critical systems like central air conditioning units and electrical panels, home equipment can also include personal property like appliances, computers and even televisions. Click on the links below for some typical loss examples.



Loss Examples
