NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair solutions, today announced the launch of a suite of appliance protection plans for homeowners. Expanding beyond its coverage of plumbing, HVAC systems and electrical lines, the Company now offers plans assisting homeowners with the unexpected cost and inconvenience created by breakdowns and issues with kitchen and laundry appliances. Thus far, over 1,500 customers have already signed up for appliance protection plans through HomeServe.
“When a refrigerator or a washing machine breaks down – whether it’s due to aging or otherwise – it can be very disruptive for homeowners’ daily lives. On top of that, repairing or replacing such appliances is a sizable expense,” said Tom Rusin, CEO, HomeServe USA. “Our mission has always been to deliver peace of mind to homeowners, making expanding into appliance protection plans a natural fit for what we do. We look forward to freeing homeowners from the hassle of dealing with malfunctioning appliances, as well as the service fees or costs that usually come with fixing or replacing them.”
Bringing Homeowners Peace of Mind
As they experience the normal wear and tear that occurs from continuous use over time, home appliances can often suffer mechanical or electrical failures. Homeowners in these situations usually find that their appliances aren’t covered, especially considering a significant proportion of consumers don’t purchase warranties at the time of sale. This forces them to navigate the repair or replacement process themselves as appliances age. Additionally, while newer appliances available today provide enhanced efficiency, the technology that allows them to save energy or water also makes them more prone to failure – making it all the more valuable for homeowners to enjoy ongoing protection that comes with no service fees and no brand restrictions.
Through HomeServe’s appliance protection plans, homeowners are fully covered for repairs or replacements to appliances. Having such a line of defense can be valuable, given the Winter 2017 edition of HomeServe’s Biannual State of the Home Survey recently found that nearly 1 in 5 Americans have $0 set aside for unexpected, emergency expenses. Furthermore, the Company’s service plans enable peace of mind not only by protecting homeowners’ wallets but also by minimizing the inconvenience, time commitment and stress associated with identifying the right provider to fix the problem. HomeServe also provides a 60 day guarantee on all covered appliance repairs.
Accessible, Reliable, 24/7
HomeServe plan holders have access to a Repair Hotline that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as well as local and reliable technicians to provide high-quality home repair services in a timely manner.
HomeServe’s Kitchen Appliance Repair Plus plan, which includes coverage for Kitchen Refrigerator, Built-In Microwave, Range/Oven/Cooktop, Dishwasher, is available for $15.29 per month. The Laundry Appliance Repair Plus, which includes Clothes Washer and Dryer, is available for $7.29 per month.
