Homeowners Equipment Breakdown Coverage

Get Homeowners Equipment Protection for only pennies a day

Why do I need Homeowners Equipment Protection Insurance?

Most homeowners often assume that the equipment in their homes that provides heating, cooling, and electricity are completely covered for breakage and repair under service warranties and service contracts. Unfortunately, in many cases these warranties and contracts do not provide sufficient coverage or may even be expired.

Pekin Insurance offers a Homeowners Equipment Breakdown Coverage endorsement which provides up to $50,000 of coverage for the accidental breakdown of permanently attached equipment. The annual premium for this coverage is a mere $20, and the coverage is subject to a $500 deductible per loss.

Why aren’t service equipment contracts and warranties enough?

Extended service contracts and home warranties can leave you seriously lacking in coverages should a breakdown occur. Insufficient protection could easily cost thousands of dollars in repairs or replacement costs. Home warranties and extended service contracts are only intended for everyday maintenance. Equipment Breakdown Coverage from Pekin Insurance will protect you from larger and more costly losses.
