Here are some commonly asked questions about Equipment Breakdown coverage.
What is Equipment Breakdown Coverage?
Equipment Breakdown coverage closes coverage gaps in the standard homeowner property policies. It responds the same way a homeowners policy does and includes electrical, mechanical or pressure equipment that suffers an equipment breakdown. This coverage eases the burden of budgeting for unexpected losses from equipment breakdown.
How important is coverage for internal breakdowns to your home appliances?
When any essential home appliance breaks down, homeowners are responsible to repair or replace the unit unless they have Equipment Breakdown coverage. This coverage closes the gap with a simple, affordable solution that protects expensive pieces of equipment from an equipment breakdown loss. For example, if a power surge damages multiple pieces of equipment in your home, Equipment Breakdown coverage would cover the repair or replacement costs. Without this coverage, the homeowner would be responsible for these expenses
How expensive is it to replace or repair home equipment?
Air conditioning units, appliances, pool pumps and security systems are just a few examples of expensive equipment that make your home comfortable. The average cost to replace a new air conditioning system is $4,500. Imagine your home experiences a severe power surge that damages multiple pieces of equipment. The cost to repair or replace these units could add up quickly.
Unfortunately, the majority of homeowners do not budget for the expense associated with repairing home equipment. Equipment Breakdown coverage is a valuable, affordable solution to protect the equipment in your home.
How Does This Coverage Differ From a Home Warranty?
Home warranties are expensive and restricting. Equipment Breakdown coverage is affordable, straightforward, and isn't limited to specific types of equipment.
Is There Coverage For Personal Property Away From the Insureds Home?
Yes, Off-Premises coverage is included. We've extended coverage for property that is away from your home so you get extra protection for your stuff. Like a laptop being used away at school.
Your home security system experienced severe electrical damage. Would Equipment breakdown cover this type of damage?
Security systems, as well as other appliances in the home, are subject to all types of internal damage. A power surge from the local utility or dusty, loose wiring could result in costly damage to fragile, electrical components within the security system. Homeowners Equipment Breakdown Insurance covers the cost to fix critical home equipment due to internal breakdown.
Your neighborhood experiences a power surge that takes out several electrical devices in your home. Is it covered?
Yes, and here's an example. Residents of a local township recently reported that a power surge caused thousands of dollars in damage to over 150 homes in the community. One homeowner reported damage to the hot tub, two televisions, electric range, DVD player and pool pump. Total damage for this home was over $4,500. The equipment breakdown endorsement covered the unplanned, costly repair/replacement of these items.
