Agents who help their clients protect expensive home items have an advantage. By going the extra mile, you can improve your clients’ experience of homeownership, which could lead to more referrals. Here are five expensive home items you can help your clients protect.

Heating and Cooling System

A home’s heating and cooling system (HVAC) is one of the most expensive systems to replace. Anecdotally, heating and cooling systems can cost over $20,000 to replace.

You can help your clients extend the life span of this important system. Share with your clients “Top Home Maintenance Tips From Service Contractors,” brought to you by 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10).

Additionally, you can offer additional protection through a 2-10 Home Warranty. A 2-10 Home Warranty provides the most comprehensive HVAC coverage on the market.

Water Heater

A failed water heater can lead to some pretty hot-headed complaints about what to do next. Even worse, water heater replacements aren’t usually cheap.

One of the biggest causes of water heater breakdowns is sediment accumulation. A good way to minimize that threat is to encourage your clients to drain their water heater at least once a year. You can show them how with 2-10’s guide, “How to Drain Your Water Heater and Lengthen Its Life.”

Plus, a 2-10 Home Warranty can provide financial protection when a water heater has a covered breakdown. Be sure to attach one to all of your transactions!



Though summertime is primetime for refrigerator breakdowns, especially from overheating, you can help your clients take steps to avoid an overheated fridge year-round with 2-10 ’s article, “Minimizing and Preparing for Summertime Breakdowns.” We’ve also included additional steps your clients can take to keep their home’s systems and appliances humming all year.

And yes, a 2-10 Home Warranty includes coverage for refrigerators. Even better, your clients can access the 2-10 Appliance Discount Program, which includes huge discounts on name-brand appliances, like 30% off Whirlpool-brand appliances!
