When buying and owning a home, you will naturally want to fill the rooms with different appliances and systems that you will use daily, whether it be for recreational use, your own comfort or just out of necessity. As time goes on and the more often these appliances are used, they will by nature start to wear down and will fail due to the wear and tear. When you get home maintenance insurance or homeowner warranty insurance, this is a contract for a predetermined amount of time and will provide payment for repairs or replacement of as many different appliances or systems in your house should they fail from normal use.
What Does Home Maintenance Insurance Cover?
The variety of appliances that can get covered by home maintenance insurance will depend on what you have in your household, the space inside your house and also how much you would like to be covered. The most basic coverage should include but not limited to:

- Toilet bowl and tank
- Electrical systems
- Exhaust and ceiling fans
