Between the rising cost of everything these days and growing concern for the environment, homeowners across the country are taking action to curb costs, cut energy consumption and reduce their environmental impact. Home Warranty of America (HWA), one of the nation's leading home warranty providers, is helping customers achieve all three goals with its new GreenPlus home warranty option. GreenPlus is the only environmentally-conscious home warranty option in the industry that guarantees replacement of the home's dishwasher, refrigerator, clothes washer, heating system and water heater with an ENERGY STAR rated product, in the event the existing covered unit cannot be repaired.
"Not only is GreenPlus unique in the industry, but it also offers a double benefit for the homeowner," said David Sobel, vice president of sales at HWA. "Customers get their covered appliance or system replaced under their warranty, saving them the cost of replacement, plus they can save money in the long run by using more efficient products that have proven to help cut costs on energy bills."
With the GreenPlus option, covered kitchen appliances are replaced with a new ENERGY STAR rated product, the heating system with a new 90% efficiency model, and the water heater with a tank-less model that provides hot water on demand. HWA plans to evaluate new products for addition to the program each year as they receive the ENERGY STAR rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. GreenPlus costs just $6.25 per month as an option on a 12-month HWA warranty contract.
"We certainly want to do our part to help protect and preserve the environment for future generations, and we also want to help our customers save even more money," Sobel said. "When you consider the number of replacements that we make in a year, the difference in efficiency improvements can really add up, not only in real dollars saved but also in reduced carbon emissions and environmental impact."
According to the U.S. EPA, ENERGY STAR qualified appliances use 10-50% less energy and water than standard models and can save homeowners around $75 per year on their energy bills. Replacing a broken HVAC system with ENERGY STAR rated equipment can save nearly $200 per year.
Founded in 1996, Home Warranty of America has emerged as a leader in the home warranty industry, providing prospective home buyers and current home owners with peace of mind coverage for major appliance and home system repairs or replacement at an affordable price. With flexible options to serve both the consumer and real estate markets, HWA provides a broad line of innovative and customizable programs to make the home-buying and home-ownership experience easier and more comfortable, even in markets that have suffered significant challenges in recent months.
HWA is the only home warranty company in the industry to offer a 13-month contract for real estate transactions, and a variety of options allowing them to customize a program that fits their client's home specifically, rather than paying for a highly pre-packaged program which may exceed or fall short of their needs.
In addition to a variety of coverage plans, HWA offers convenient online warranty purchasing capabilities, available 24/7, saving customers time and providing convenience. No home inspection is ever needed and when a covered appliance or system requires maintenance, HWA will contact one of the fully vetted, licensed and bonded vendors in their network, or give vendor contact information to the customer to setup the service call.
HWA warranties are available in 49 states and cover normal wear and tear on a variety of home systems and appliances, including dishwashers, garbage disposals, heating/cooling systems, central vacuum, electrical and plumbing systems, with optional coverage for pool/spa, garage door systems and more. The company also offers programs for residences such as condominiums, townhomes, duplex and triplex facilities. Each comes with a 30-day money back guarantee.
