Why Homeowners Need Equipment Breakdown Coverage
The things you use all the time at home can break unexpectedly. Dishwasher motors go out and washing machines suddenly stop working. Swimming pool filtering systems and heating and cooling equipment can fail, too.
Equipment Breakdown coverage can help limit the out-of-pocket costs you might need to pay if appliances, smart home devices and other technology stop working. This additional coverage can help you get many key appliances and equipment in your home up and running again. And in most cases, costly out-of-pocket expenses can be limited to the amount of your Equipment Breakdown deductible.
Plus, if your outdated appliances need to be replaced, Equipment Breakdown coverage will also pay the additional cost — up to 50% more than the value of the item — to upgrade them with a current Energy Star or energy-efficient model.
