A. Systems and Appliances Service Agreements

Covered Home Systems
- Air Conditioner / Freon Split System

Plumbing - In the most basic terms, all plumbing comes down to pipes and fixtures that bring and take water and waste where they belong. Plumbing is like the circulatory system for your house. Pipe leaks and breaks in water and waste lines are eligible for coverage, as are toilets and the clearing of mainline stoppages.
- Built-in Microwave
- Trash Compactor
- Washer & Dryer
Refrigerator - Similar to the air conditioning system that cools your home, the refrigerator uses a cooling agent moving through a compressor to refrigerate, or freeze, your food. The mechanical components that keep your groceries cool are eligible for coverage.
B. New Home Warranty

The Fine Print
Provided at closing or purchased directly from 2-10 HBW, this warranty covers normal wear and tear to the home's major systems (furnace, hot water heater, air conditioner, plumbing and electrical systems) and major appliances (refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, built-in microwave, disposal, trash compactor). Complementary to homeowner's insurance, the 2-10 HBW warranty covers the repair or replacement of the most frequent and likely home system and appliance breakdowns.
When a covered system breaks down, the homeowner simply places a claim online or calls our toll-free number, and we will immediately dispatch a contractor to make the repair. The homeowner pays the contractor a small service fee and we pay the rest for all covered items. Homeowners don't have to hassle with finding a contractor or worry about negotiating the cost of the repair work. In the event that a covered system or appliance cannot be repaired, we will replace it with a system or appliance of comparable or better quality.
