Home systems and appliances are prone to repair services. Many homeowners end up with a major expense when they least expect it. Sometimes replacing an entire HVAC system can cause homeowners to take out multiple loans, and some homeowners even fall into bankruptcy problems due to unexpected repairs. Don’t let this happen to you! A home warranty from Freedom provides peace of mind knowing that you will be cared for by the most trusted repair professionals in the area.
Here are some of the most common appliances that need repair:
A refrigerator is normally the most expensive appliance in the kitchen and has a lifespan of up to 15 years. However, many refrigerators start to need repairs within 5 years of purchase. A home warranty can save you from replacing the refrigerator or paying for expensive repairs as you just pay a flat rate for service calls.
Ovens and Stoves
Ovens and stoves can last approximately 15 years, but they too have common problems requiring maintenance services including igniter failures and control board failures.
Plan on dishwasher replacement every eight to 10 years. Dishwashers are one of the most common appliances in need of repair or replacement services.
Washer and Dryer
Most washer and dryers will last approximately eight to 12 years based on how frequently they are used. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of a washer and dryer and basic repairs can expand the lifespan while reducing risks with dryer fires.
On average, a hot water heater will last for 10 years. To get the most out of a water heater, homeowners need to perform basic sediment cleaning. However, most homeowners do not perform maintenance tasks, increasing problems with the heating unit, leading to pilot light issues.
An HVAC system is by far one of the most important and expensive elements in a house. A HVAC system needs to be replaced every 15 to 20 years to keep your house comfortable. Yearly servicing, and tuneups can improve the functionality of the HVAC system, and give you an idea of its lifespan.
Most homeowners have a microwave in the home. Freedom Home Warranty provides coverage for built-in microwaves. A built-in microwave will cost more than its countertop counterpart, which can often lead to expensive repair costs. Most dealers provide a parts and labor coverage plan for the first year of owning the microwave. With a home warranty plan, you have coverage for as long as you continue paying for your plan.
