Not every Illinois home warranty is the same, and Home Warranty of America (HWA) wants to make sure you have the information you need to safeguard your biggest asset -- your home.
First, it is important to know what a home warranty plan is and how it differs from home insurance. Home insurance (mandatory if you have a home mortgage), covers your home in the event of damage due to natural calamity or man-made disasters. In contrast, a home warranty protects home buyers and sellers from the expenses of repairs or replacement of major mechanical systems and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear during the coverage term. And with a comprehensive 13-month home warranty plan from HWA, there are no restrictions on the age of your home or the appliances, or inspections required prior to purchase (although HWA highly recommends that all buyers have the house, townhouse or condominium inspected before purchasing it).
Next, it’s important to know how a home warranty works. When you work through HWA, the process is simple. If a covered appliance or system breaks down, just place a claim online or call 888-492-7359. After you pay a small trade call fee starting at $50, a screened technician will come to your home to diagnose and fix the problem! It’s that easy! Terms can vary slightly by region and are available to view on our Cost & Coverage page. Always refer to your specific contract for details or ask us to send you one.
Finally, how much does a home warranty cost? Since HWA customizes each Illinois home warranty to fit your needs and your budget, you can have confidence that we will design the plan and options that work for you. Plans start as low as $24.95 a month.
