What Is a Home Warranty?

A home warranty (or Home Service Plan as we call it) is a powerful budget-protecting tool for homeowners. Learn more about why a Home Service Plan is a smart investment below.

Why a Home Service Plan Is Important

A Home Service Plan is an annual service contract that can provide coverage for things that homeowners insurance doesn’t.

For example, if your furnace or A/C were to break down from routine use, homeowners insurance wouldn’t cover it. Without a Home Service Plan, you could be on the hook for the costs.

With a Home Service Plan, you could lower those costs to a smaller, more manageable Service Fee.

A Service Fee is a small, out-of-pocket expense you pay to your Service Contractor to diagnose the issue upon arrival.

How Does a Home Service Plan Work?

Here’s a quick, five-step rundown of how a Home Service Plan works.

1. Purchase coverage/set up account

2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10) offers several plans. After purchase, you create an account. Your account lets you review coverage and update info, among other things

2. Request Service online when needed

When a Covered Item breaks down, you can request Service right from your account.

3. 2-10 assigns contractor

We assign a contractor, and they work with you to set an appointment to diagnose the Failure.

4. 2-10 reviews your coverage

We review the diagnosis, determine your coverage eligibility, and authorize a repair or replacement.

5. Enjoy homeownership

You get back to living.

Additional Perks & Benefits

On top of quality coverage, 2-10 offers additional perks and benefits.

For instance, you can get big discounts on GE and Whirlpool brand appliances through 2-10’s Appliance Discount Program.

Another great perk is the Appliance Replacement Offer. If a covered appliance breaks down and is eligible for replacement, you have two options:

  1. Pay a Service Fee and have it replaced
  2. Use the Appliance Replacement Offer

The Appliance Replacement Offer lets you buy and install a new appliance on your own. Then, you can request reimbursement of up to $150 on your new appliance. Combined with the Appliance Discount Program, you get a real one-two punch toward savings.
