NORTH HUNTINGDON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home emergency repair solutions, today announced the launch of its partnership with North Huntingdon Township Municipal Authority (NHTMA) to offer area homeowners optional repair service plans for the sewer line connecting their homes to the NHTMA system. Residents served by NHTMA will receive information from HomeServe offering coverage plans designed to protect homeowners from the costs and inconveniences associated with repairs to these service lines.
“North Huntingdon Township homeowners are often unaware that the exterior sewer laterals on their property, which connect their home to the NHTMA system, are their responsibility,” said Michael L. Branthoover, General Manager of NHTMA. “In the event of a blockage or collapsed line, the homeowner is responsible for scheduling the repair and covering the associated cost. As North Huntingdon homes age along with the infrastructure serving them, HomeServe service plans provide local homeowners with an optional solution so they can be better prepared in the event of these unexpected repairs.”
A Homeowner’s Line of Defense
The sewer lines from the home to NHTMA’s sewer main connections are the responsibility of the homeowner. Since repairs to these pipes are not covered by basic homeowners insurance or by NHTMA, homeowners have to deal with the inconvenience of navigating emergency repairs on their own. Additionally, homeowners are often caught off guard by the expense of these emergency repairs. HomeServe’s plans serve as a line of defense, ensuring that in the event of an unexpected repair, the burden on homeowners is minimized or eliminated, and the repair process, handled through HomeServe, is timely, seamless and high quality.
Accessible, Reliable, 24/7
HomeServe plan holders have access to a Repair Hotline, which is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, as well as local, licensed, and insured contractors to provide high-quality home repair services in a timely manner. The Sewer and Septic Line Coverage will be available $10.49 per month. Also available is an Exterior Water Service Line Coverage plan for $6.49 per month. An Interior Plumbing and Drainage plan to cover in-home plumbing is available for $13.49 per month. Residents who enroll in the optional plans will have convenient payment options available directly through HomeServe.
“Our service plans cover the cost of the repair and they also provide homeowners with local, reputable contractors who will do the best possible job,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “We’re pleased to be partnering with North Huntingdon Township Municipal Authority and look forward to the opportunity to provide NHTMA customers with the assistance they need when faced with a home repair emergency.”
