What Is Home Warranty


The Winterizing Series, Part 1: Can you feel the heat?

As grown ups, we’ve got lists and lists and lists of things we need to take care of. All the time. And we are very seldom listless. But of all the lists, this one is pretty important: preparing and maintaining your home for the winter. With the list below, and checkin’ it twice, you can avoid expensive or unexpected repairs so you can properly enjoy the cozy comfort of a delightful fire…

Professional Furnace/HVAC Inspection

Make the call and have your furnace/HVAC system inspected and serviced (it’s an annual thing).

Thermostat Tune Up

Don’t sweat it, or rather, do. Turn your thermostat to heat mode and set it to 75-80. You should hear the furnace turn on and feel warm air pumping. Done. Change the batteries! Who even remembers to do that? Well, here’s your reminder!

Program your thermostat

Save energy by programming your thermostat to the times you are home. Consider upgrading to a Smart thermostat – they’re pretty clever and can learn from the temperature changes you make throughout the day/night and it programs itself. Helps save energy and dinero while you’re away and for when you’re home.

Did you hear that beep?

Save yourself the hunt when you hear the beep of a carbon monoxide and smoke detector is low on battery. Switch ‘em and confirm they are in working order now.

Wait, a furnace has an air filter?

Every furnace has its own requirements for air filters, but be sure you’ve got a fresh one — it will ensure easy air flow and a cleaner environment. This is something you can make sure the tech checks off his list at the annual maintenance visit.

Got a propane tank or fuel furnace?

Check the supply! If you have a propane or fuel furnace, check that your tank is topped off.

    Typical Home Warranty

    A long legal contract. More pages means more conditions and exclusions – and more reasons to deny you service.
