What to look for in a home warranty in New York

Make sure your coverage checks all the boxes

A lot can come with a home warranty plan. But as a resident in NY, you’ll want to make sure your plan covers these essential items:

Heating systems

The average New York winter temperature is in the 30s. It’s comforting to know that your heating unit will keep you warm and toasty during winter. With a New York home warranty that covers the key parts and components of your heating system, you can feel confident that any covered issues will be repaired or replaced so you can stay comfortable all season long.

Air Conditioning

It’s essential for your AC to keep you cool during New York’s hot and humid summer days. A home warranty should cover the key parts and components of your air conditioner so you can get it back up and running again if it breaks down. We also offer discounted seasonal HVAC tune-ups—or one free HVAC tune-up per plan agreement term if you have the ShieldPlatinum™ plan!

Roof leak repairs

From muggy summers to snow-filled winters, New York can get wet— but that doesn’t mean you have to be drenched when roof leaks occur. A home warranty in New York state that offers roof leak repair coverage will help keep your house dry and your budget happy.

Home electronics

Computers, laptops, game consoles, TVs, and smart home products can be expensive to repair or replace. When they experience mechanical or electrical failures due to everyday use, rely on the Electronics Protection Plan, which you can easily add to your base home warranty plan.
