The holidays can be both joyous and stressful. With a home warranty, unexpected repairs can be fixed by reliable technicians. Save yourself the headache!
While many of us look forward to the holiday season all year, it can also be a time of great stress. In between all that cookie-baking and gift-buying, it can be challenging to get someone to fix your broken dishwasher or HVAC system. Fortunately, there’s a solution for any unexpected breakdowns that might put a damper on your holiday spirit: a home warranty plan.
A home warranty is an excellent way to protect your home from unforeseen and unexpected expenses. The American Home Shield® (AHS) Home Warranty Plan is a one-year service contract for the repair or replacement of covered home system components and appliances that typically break down over time.
Take a look at these five common holiday season headaches that can be easily managed with an AHS Home Warranty Plan.
1. Finding reliable help around the holidays
It can be just as challenging to find reliable home-repair help during the busy holiday season as it is to get that Thanksgiving turkey just right. With a home warranty plan, you’ll have access to industry-leading expertise 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. AHS will find the right licensed personnel and eliminate the need for you to locate qualified help during the busy days leading up to and during the holidays.
2. Unforeseen expenses
Repairing something as major as your home heating system could cost you thousands of dollars. Such a huge expense can be stressful at a time when you’re already spending money on gifts, food, decorations and other miscellaneous holiday expenses. But with a home warranty, you’ll only need to pay the monthly fee along with a trade service call fee, which is a fixed amount that's easy to plan for.
3. Dealing with insurance companies
With a warranty plan, you can skip the whole process of filing for claims and dealing with insurance, and spend that precious time shopping, wrapping gifts, cooking delicious meals, or decorating your home with family and friends.
4. Playing host with a broken appliance
A broken dishwasher or refrigerator can really put a damper on your holiday festivities. A home warranty plan offers an expedited repair process on covered items. You no longer have to worry about a crisis caused by appliance or system breakdowns at a time when your house is swarming with guests.
5. Paying the full cost of repair or replacement
In the event of a breakdown, insurance usually reimburses the value of the item minus depreciation. This means you will not be reimbursed the full amount paid at the time of purchase. With a warranty plan, you won’t have to pay for the actual repair or replacement of covered items, and your contract will cover repair or replacement of covered items regardless of age, make or model.
6. Not enough time to coordinate home repairs
Finding reliable help that suits your budget, following up and replacing parts all involve a considerable time investment. Since the costs associated with repair and replacement are so high, it is not possible to skimp on the research and effort needed to get a satisfactory solution. A warranty plan will save you time when you need it the most this busy holiday season.
With a little bit of proactive planning and an American Home Shield® Home Warranty Plan, you can ensure that you'll never have to spend your precious holiday time on these frustrating situations. Contact American Home Shield® today to get a free quote for Home Warranty coverage.
