Tips for Buying a Home Warranty

Tips for Purchasing a Home Warranty Plan

Whether you’re purchasing your first home or your fifth home, this will be one of the most fulfilling – and possibly expensive – investments you’ll ever make. The responsibility to repair, maintain, or replace the extensive systems throughout the home can be overwhelming for some homeowners.

Enter: A home warranty plan.

A home warranty plan protects your most valuable (and highly used) home systems, including plumbing, heating, and air conditioning.

In this blog, we’ll give you our best tips for choosing and purchasing a home warranty plan that is right for you, and let you know how Simplicity Protection is here to help keep you, well…protected. It’s that simple. 

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Home Warranty Plan

Once you’ve decided you want greater protection for your home’s appliances and systems, it’s time to research which home warranty plans are right for you.

Here are three important factors to consider when choosing a home warranty plan:


There’s no point in choosing a home warranty coverage plan if it doesn’t offer you the extensive coverage you’re looking for. Look for a plan that falls within a price range that you can afford. Fortunately, at Simplicity Protection, we make this easy with three coverage levels, several add on options, and coverage up to $45,000.

Coverage Transparency

Your home warranty company should offer complete transparency when it comes to their coverage options, providing   contract details, items that are and are not covered, and state requirements. Click here to view Simplicity Protection’s sample contract.

Repair Network

Finally, when looking for a home warranty plan, it’s important to take into consideration the repair network associated with the company. Do they choose licensed professionals? Do they check ratings? These are important questions to raise, as the contractors and technicians who will work on your home’s systems act as an extension of the home warranty company.

Tips for Maximizing Your Home Warranty Coverage

Your home warranty plan should leave you feeling protected, confident, and secure in your decision, which is why learning how to maximize your home warranty coverage is an essential part of choosing your coverage plan.

A few of our favorite tips for home warranty coverage maximization, include:

  • Opting for higher coverage – the more you cover, the more you save. If you have a larger home with, let’s say, a pool or spa, make sure it’s covered. Don’t gamble with expensive home systems that could cost you down the line.
  • Understand your contract – Before choosing a home warranty plan, speak to a representative who can help walk you through the contract and answer any and all questions you may have.
  • Know your warranty period – This is a solid question that should be brought up during contract review. Make sure to ask about month-to-month and annual warranty coverage periods, as well as automatic renewal policies and cancellations.
