Holiday Stress: It Affects Your Home Too!

HomeServe Urges Consumers to Protect Themselves from the Cost and Inconvenience of Emergency Repairs This Season

STAMFORD, Conn.--()--With many homeowners expecting house guests this holiday season, and cold winter weather spreading across parts of the country, HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair plans, is recommending families consider protection plans for their critical household systems. The holidays can be hectic enough without the unexpected challenge of emergency repairs. A protection plan can help provide a little extra peace of mind during the season.

HomeServe responded to over 1,400 service requests from its customers over the Thanksgiving weekend, including 330 emergencies on Thanksgiving Day itself. But, because HomeServe customers hold service plans for their water and sewer lines, electrical systems, gas lines, heating and water heating equipment, these homeowners were spared the expense and the hassle of trying to arrange for repairs on a busy holiday.

“Many homeowners are not aware they are responsible for home emergency repairs that fall outside the scope of basic homeowners insurance, such as repairs to their water or sewer line,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “A home emergency repair service plan helps cover the cost of repairs, and also gives homeowners peace of mind knowing that a reliable contractor is available to make the repair. We’re here for our customers 24-hours a day, even on weekends and holidays.”

HomeServe, which serves 1.4 million customers across the U.S. and Canada, provides affordable emergency repair service plans that protect homeowners from the expense and inconvenience of repairs to a range of plumbing, electrical and HVAC home emergencies. HomeServe customers have access to a U.S.-based Repair Hotline that is staffed and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to bring local, licensed insured and qualified contractors right to the customer’s home.

Homeowners can learn about available plans and pricing by visiting www.yourserviceplans.com. This week, HomeServe is offering water service line coverage to homeowners in Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Kansas, Texas and Virginia1. These homeowners will learn more about their water service line responsibilities, the cost of repairs and the availability of HomeServe’s low cost repair option. Having a HomeServe plan is a great peace of mind solution, especially during the holidays.
