A home warranty is a service plan that provides coverage for service, repair, and replacement of systems and appliances listed in the warranty policy. Warranties can provide different types of coverage, including major home systems such as HVAC, electrical, and plumbing as well as appliances. Plumbing is considered a service, so most warranties provide coverage for indoor pipe and other plumbing repairs. Covered repairs usually include leaks or breaks in pipes, fixing or replacing faucets and valves, fixing or replacing built-in motors and pumps, and basket strainers, and clearing of tub, shower, and toilet blockages and stoppages. Learn about coverage offered by a typical home warranty.
