The Importance of a Home Warranty For Your Appliance


Many Central Florida residents have multiple warranties and extended warranties to protect the various appliances and systems in their home. However, you can protect all these things if they need repair or replacement, whether they give out, are stolen or are destroyed by weather, vandalism or fire with one home warranty. They cover what homeowner’s insurance does not.

Gembecki is a Recognized Service Provider for Multiple Home Warranty Companies

Home warranties cover appliances as well as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, plumbing and pools and spas. As an Orlando HVAC repair company, Gembecki is a recognized service provider by some of the top home warranty companies, including the following:

  • American Home Shield
  • Choice Home Warranty
  • Cross Country Home Services
  • Global Home Protection
  • Old Republic Home Protection

Often, people without home warranties buy them when they are selling their home as an extra incentive for the buyer. It helps give new homeowners peace of mind that they won’t have to spend a lot of money if their Orlando air conditioning and heating system or an appliance gives out.

What to Look for in a Home Warranty

When choosing a home warranty company, you should read the plans carefully and consider the following:

  • Which appliances and systems are covered and which are not?
  • What are the coverage limits are for each appliance and system?
  • What is the annual cost of the coverage and do you have to pay additional fees for each visit?
  • Under what circumstances can the company deny payment (for example, improper installation, poor maintenance, improper use or code violations)?
  • Does the company require contractors to be bonded, insured and licensed?
  • How long does it take between the time a claim is made and the time you get service? Do they have a 24 hour a day phone number to call?
  • Does the company choose service providers or can you choose your own?
  • What happens if you aren’t happy with the service provided? What is their complaint process?
  • It’s important to consider a home warranty company’s reputation for working with reliable service providers, honoring their contracts and ensuring quick response times. Look at the reviews online. If you’re going to be selling your home, your real estate agent may be a good person to consult.
