Never fear if your Foley, AL home’s air conditioning goes out during summer. Your homeowner’s insurance just might cover the damages, says Southern Risk Associates.
The standard homeowner’s policy covers HVAC breakdowns when caused by a named peril. Named perils to include fire, tornado, hurricane, lightning strikes, hail, etc. So, if during a storm, lighting took out your HVAC or damaged it, your home policy covers that. Call your insurance agent at Southern Risk Associates.
What if wear and tear caused the problem?
For any cause besides a named peril, you need an add-on to the standard home policy to cover the damages. Your insurance agent at Southern Risk Associates can help you add this necessary coverage. Without the add-on, you would need to cover the repairs yourself which could cost thousands.
If you do have an add-on already in place, call your insurance agent to start the claims process. You may have purchased an add-on with a deductible, so you need to pay your deductible before the insurance process begins. Your agent takes care of the rest once you file a claim and submit the paperwork that you paid the deductible amount.
Your home insurance can cover HVAC problems. You can also supplement it by purchasing a home warranty. These allow a specific maintenance schedule, and they cover the maintenance visits under a flat annual fee. Once you pay for your warranty for the year, your maintenance and some repairs are completely covered.
Contact Southern Risk Associates of Foley, AL to check whether your home policy has this coverage or if you need to purchase an add-on to help make sure your insurance policy covers the important things in life like cool air during Alabama summers.
