“If it uses electric power, it is most likely subject to Equipment Breakdown.”
Often this equipment requires sophisticated diagnostic tools and skilled technicians to oversee a potential repair. Equipment breakdown coverage protects you against unexpected repair or replacement costs due to a electrical, mechanical, or pressure systems breakdown. In addition to coverage, loss prevention information and loss adjustment services are customized at a fraction of the cost of limiting home warranty products. Best of all, this additional coverage follows the terms and conditions of your insurance policy. Off-Premises Coverage is now included. Coverage was previously limited to “Residence Premise” and now we’ve extended coverage for property that is away from the descirbed premises.
