A home protection plan normally covers mechanical failures or breakdowns due to normal wear and tear of your home appliances or major systems (heat/air conditioning, plumbing, electric, kitchen appliances, etc.) depending upon the plan and options that you select. The plan guarantees to the homeowner that if something that is covered by the home protection plan stops working or breaks down then it will be repaired or replaced by the service company, subject to the terms, conditions and coverage limits of the contract.
A home protection plan does NOT cover any items in the event of natural or man-made disasters that can cause major damage to a home and its mechanical systems. They also do not cover events that a homeowner’s or flood insurance policy would cover, such as: tornadoes, hurricanes, fires, floods or theft. Our plans do not cover the physical structure of a home or personal belongings that are inside the home.
When you purchase a home protection plan from American Residential Warranty, you are entitled to certain protections as part of the plan. If one of your covered appliances or systems breaks down, you can either submit a request online or call us. For all covered repairs, a small service fee of $55 will be due per breakdown, unless otherwise noted in the terms & conditions.
Today just about every home has a microwave, including the built-in microwave which is growing in popularity every day. These kitchen appliances are a real time saver and the built-in microwave saves space on kitchen countertops. This is especially beneficial in homes with very small kitchens and/or little counter space. They also give the kitchen a more modern, stylish appearance which makes it even more appealing. However, built-in microwaves do cost more than countertop models. When there are problems that develop causing the microwave to stop working, the result can be an expensive repair or replacement.
There are built-in microwaves that operate in the home for years before a problem occurs, while others break down within days or months after installation. Most dealers will cover both parts and labor ONLY for the first year following installation. When you have a home protection plan that includes built-in microwave protection, you will have coverage for as long as you continue paying for your plan. With a home protection plan from American Residential Warranty that, includes your built-in microwave, you will rest easy knowing that your important time-saving investment is covered.
