10 Things You Didn't Know A Home Warranty Can Cover

As home warranties gain in popularity, most people understand them as ways to protect your major home appliances, such as refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines. And that’s absolutely true! A home warranty is an excellent way to keep those machines in tip-top shape. But the possibilities of home warranty coverage go far beyond your standard home appliances. Home warranty plans can also protect the sometimes overlooked appliances and systems in your home, and they can even help you with home maintenance services.

10 Things You Didn't Know A Home Warranty Can Cover

1. Garage Door Openers

It’s easy to forget how often we rely on our garage door openers. We press a button as we come and go and largely forget about it. But garage door openers are exceptionally convenient devices, and sometimes remarkably expensive to repair. Luckily, a home warranty can include garage door opener coverage.


Does a home warranty cover ductwork? You bet. In fact, HVAC repair accounts for a significant portion of home warranty claims nationwide. Liberty Home Guard includes HVAC coverage in our System Guard and Total Home Guard plans.

3. Ceiling Fans

ceiling fan is another home convenience we often take for granted, and another machine that is deceptively simple. General use can cause wear and tear on the various component parts of a fan, and that’s when a home warranty comes in handy.

4. Pools, Spas, and Hot Tubs

Water, chemicals, and fluctuating temperatures can strain home pools, spas, and hot tubs. Fortunately, a swimming pool home warranty can help you keep the problems at bay—and keep you from getting soaked by repair costs.

5. Rekeying

Surprisingly, rekeying accounts for another significant share of home warranty claims. A warranty can make the rekey process more convenient and affordable than calling a locksmith.

6. Sprinkler Systems

When we think of our important home systems, most people would quickly name electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. Sprinkler systems are maybe not so obvious, but they’re complex, expensive systems that are critical to conveniently maintaining your lawn and landscaping. A comprehensive home warranty can protect more of your irrigation system than your lawn sprinkler pump cover ever could.

7. Floor and Carpet Cleaning

Many people assume home warranties will cover only appliances and systems, but some plans also provide home services. With the right plan, you can tap your provider to arrange for periodic floor and carpet cleaning to keep your home in pristine condition.

8. Roof and Basement Leaks

Standard insurance policies famously will not cover flood damage unless a homeowner specifically purchases flood insurance. In the battle of homeowner’s insurance vs. home warranty coverage, home warranties come out on top here. A home warranty can provide coverage for roof and basement leaks at a more affordable cost.

9. Gutter Cleaning

Home warranties are great for conveniently and affordably taking care of tasks around the home that some people can’t reasonably manage. Gutter cleaning is an excellent example. For many homeowners, it’s simply too dangerous to attempt to clean their gutters themselves. A home warranty provider can find a professional to handle that job for you.

10. Pest Control

At the first sign of a mouse, cockroach, or other pest, most people would call an exterminator. A home warranty with pest control coverage can facilitate that process for you. With the right plan, you can evict the unwanted residents in your home and ensure they never return.
