Protect Your Tennessee Home and AppliancesTennessee homes rely on a lot of critical appliances to run smoothly. Residents in the state use about a third more electricity than the national average, but their spending is close to average, thanks to low electricity prices here. Tennessee’s climate necessitates both heating and cooling. In winters, the average lows dip into the 30s, while summer highs soar above 90. Homeowners typically use about 34 percent of their annual electricity on space heating and 10 percent on air conditioning. You can make sure that both essential home comfort systems are always in good shape by investing in a home warranty. A basic plan covers your heating system and ductwork. If you want to include your air conditioning in your warranty, as Tennessee homeowners should, you’ll need the Total Plan. This can handle everything you need to maintain the perfect temperature in your home. Tennessee homeowners use about 38 percent of their annual electricity to power appliances, lighting, and electronics. This is slightly higher than the national average of 35 percent. Make sure you’re getting the most efficiency possible out of these items by staying on top of repairs. Neglecting a pending problem will typically lead to a bigger issue further down the road. With a home warranty, you can more easily schedule repairs early. You’re only responsible for a one-time service fee. The rest of the costs are covered.
Why is a Home Warranty Necessary in Tennessee?Every home is different, but there are many important features of your Tennessee home that you’ll want to cover. If you’re in the eastern part of the state enjoying the outdoor highlights, you’re sure to want a hot shower to come back to, after that long hike. A basic home warranty covers your water heater and any whirlpool bathtubs you have, if you’re in the mood for a soak. If you have a spa, you can add this to your home warranty when personalizing your plan. Tennessee is known for its decadent Southern delights like fried catfish, country ham, and Memphis ribs. Make sure your kitchen is always equipped to serve up something special with that warm southern welcome, residents here are known for. A basic home warranty will protect your oven, range, stove, cooktop, dishwasher, and even a built-in microwave. You can include your refrigerator with a total plan. This is a must, for keeping that sweet tea ice cold. If you live in a rural part of Tennessee, don’t forget to include items like your septic system in your home warranty. You can also add a well pump, sump pump, and central vacuum system. If you have a second refrigerator or stand-alone freezer, these are other items that you can include as add-ons when you’re completing your plan. The right home warranty will protect everything in your home.
