MATTOON, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Coles-Moultrie Electric Cooperative (CMEC), a community based electric power distributor serving members in central Illinois and HomeServe USA (HomeServe), a leading provider of home repair solutions, today announced a new program to support the home repair needs of residents in the CMEC service territory. Through the program, CMEC will make HomeServe’s optional repair service plans available to CMEC members.
Through the program, HomeServe will offer a suite of service plans that cover repairs to the exterior electric lines, interior electric lines, water heater repairs or replacements, heating and cooling system repairs. All of these repair service plans are designed to shield homeowners from the inconvenience and unexpected expenses associated with repairs to these systems.
“We are pleased to work with HomeServe to provide our members with a valuable benefit to help them with home repairs,” said Kim Leftwich President/CEO of CMEC. “HomeServe service plans provide homeowners with an optional peace of mind solution so they can be better prepared in the event of an unexpected repair to one of these important systems.”
HomeServe’s Exterior Electric Line service Plan, for example, offers homeowners protection against the expense and inconvenience of repairs to their home’s exterior electrical components that connect to the CMEC electric system. This can include repairs to the weatherhead, riser pipe, insulators, meter base and service entrance cable. These repairs can be costly and are not typically covered by basic homeowners insurance. All the HomeServe plans provide customers with access to a Repair Hotline that is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and local, licensed, and insured technicians that will come to their home for repairs. Plans start at $5.49 a month.
“Our cost-effective service plans provide a better way for customers to pay for and obtain repairs through our reliable network of qualified local contractors,” said Tom Rusin, CEO of HomeServe USA. “HomeServe shares the same level of commitment to customer service as Coles-Moultrie. It’s important for CMEC members to know that if they have and electrical or other repair emergency, they have an available service to turn to.”
CMEC members will be receiving details about the new program in the mail over the coming week. For more information, contact HomeServe toll-free at 1-833-334-1874 or visit www.HomeServeUSA.com.
