What Does a Home Warranty Cover?

At Platinum Home Warranty, we want to help you be a happier homeowner — as owning a home is complicated enough when things are working correctly. When your oven stops working or your air conditioner stops keeping you cool, a home warranty is there to make life easier and to take the stress out of those stressful situations.

Even so, are you aware of what is covered when you purchase a warranty for your home?

First, what exactly is a home warranty? A home warranty is a yearly service contract that provides coverage on many of your home appliances and component systems. In the case that one of your appliances or home component systems breaks down due to normal wear and tear, your warranty will cover the repair or replacement of the appliance or system.

Common appliances:

  • Refrigerator, oven/range, built-in microwave
  • Dishwasher, garbage disposal, trash compactor
  • Clothes washer and dryer*
  • Garage door system components, garage door openers*

Common systems:

  • Electrical
  • HVAC (heating and cooling)
  • Hot water heater
  • Plumbing, septic*, soft water*

The above are all samples of covered appliances and component systems under Platinum Home Warranty’s four plan options. You can also customize a plan for an additional fee; you can even add on individual coverage for a detached accessory dwelling unit.

After your home warranty coverage begins, Platinum requires that you routinely take care of and maintain your appliances and home systems, per manufacturer instructions, which are protected by the plan.

With Platinum Home Warranty in Arizona, be assured you can trust us with your home as we will treat it like it is our own.
