Home Emergency Insurance Solutions Enters into Agreement with Diablo Water District
HEIS to Offer Optional Water Line, In-Home Plumbing, and Water Heater Repair Service Plans
OAKLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Home Emergency Insurance Solutions (HEIS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading administrator of home emergency repair service plans, today announced an agreement with Diablo Water District, a local public water utility serving Oakley, Cypress Corridor and Hotchkis Tract, as well as Summer Lakes, and portions of Bethel Island and Knightsen, to provide optional water service line, in-home plumbing and water heater repair service plans to the 10,600 District residential customers.
“These plans through Home Emergency Insurance Solutions offer an innovative and affordable solution to address an important customer issue, providing a needed service while improving our relationship with our customers.”
Diablo Water District joins other Bay Area water districts and utilities offering Home Emergency Insurance Solutions plans to their customers. Across the state, HEIS administers over 326,000 insurance plans for more than 213,000 California homeowners.
HEIS’s affordable service plans offer California homeowners protection against the expense and inconvenience of emergency home repairs, including water line leaks and breaks, household plumbing problems, and water heater repairs or replacements, which basic homeowner’s insurance policies typically do not cover. Plan holders have access to a Repair Hotline that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to bring local, licensed and insured contractors right to their home for repairs. The plans start at $5.99 a month.
“Providing the best possible personal service to our customers at a reasonable cost are key tenets of our mission at the District,” said Mike Yeraka, General Manager, Diablo Water District. “These plans through Home Emergency Insurance Solutions offer an innovative and affordable solution to address an important customer issue, providing a needed service while improving our relationship with our customers.”
“Many homeowners do not realize that homeowners insurance doesn’t cover every type of home emergency, like a leaking or burst water service line or a water heater replacement, until it’s too late,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “These types of repairs can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Homeowners can spare themselves from both the expense and heartache that goes along with a home emergency by protecting themselves and their finances with a repair service plan.”
Details about the new program will be arriving to Diablo Water District customers starting the week of August 11th. For more information, contact Home Emergency Insurance Solutions toll-free at 1-844-219-9155 or visit www.homeserveusa.com.
