Exterior Electrical Plan
Paying for home repairs is never a fun way to spend your money. And having to deal with exterior electrical line repairs can be very expensive repairs homeowners deal with. To make matters worse, these repairs are typically not covered by basic homeowners’ insurance, meaning you will have to foot the bill yourself.
Here at HomeServe, we offer home exterior electrical line plans to help homeowners when they need repairs or a replacement. When you have a plan in place, there’s no need to worry about calling an electrician to fix covered repairs. That’s because our expert, licensed technicians will do the work and HomeServe will pay for the costs up to the benefitted amount.
What is an Exterior Electrical Plan?
There are many things that can cause your exterior electrical lines to fail, leading to power outages throughout your home. Things such as aging of the power line, tripped breakers, ground settling, weather-head corrosion, loose entrance cables, just to name a few, can all cause damage. These damages can be expensive to repair and having to replace your home’s exterior electrical system components can put a dent in your finances.
Help safeguard your finances against the costs of covered emergency repairs with Exterior Electrical Line Coverage from HomeServe. This optional coverage can help ensure that your exterior electric line can be fixed by an expert professional in a timely manner.
What Does an Exterior Electrical Plan from HomeServe Cover?
The exterior electrical plan from HomeServe covers the following types of electrical problems:
- Meter base
- Service entrance conductor
The responsibility for home repairs to the exterior electrical lines typically falls on a homeowner’s shoulders. When a problem occurs, you will have to call for service and pay for the repairs. Being prepared with an exterior electrical plan from HomeServe means payment for these services may be taken care of by your coverage.
What Can Exterior Electrical Problems Cause?
Issues with your exterior electrical lines can be troublesome for homeowners especially considering most of these components are located underground or in insulators. Without proper training or expertise in the electrical industry, it can be next to impossible for homeowners to diagnose what’s going on with their exterior electrical lines. That’s why it’s important to look out for the warning signs that something may be wrong. Here are some of the problems exterior electrical issues can cause:
- A power outage
- Exposed electrical wires
- Flickering lights
The last thing you need to worry about is an electrical issue leaving you scrambling to find an electrician. This is why when you have a plan and a breakdown occurs, you can call our 24/7 repair hotline and we will send an expert electrician to your home to help fix the issue.
Is an Exterior Electrical Plan Worth it?
Many homeowners operate under the assumption that their basic homeowners’ insurance policy will help them in the event they need help with electrical line repairs. Unfortunately, most basic homeowners insurance plans do not cover electrical lines damaged from normal wear and tear. So, it makes sense to get exterior electrical coverage, so you don’t have to worry about paying hundreds of dollars for a professional electrician for any covered repairs. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that the exterior electrical system problems will be addressed by our experts.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a difference between interior and exterior electrical line coverage?
Figuring out the difference between interior and exterior electrical line coverage can be the cause of a lot of confusion for homeowners. There is a difference between the two because both involve very different systems and parts. For example, exterior electrical line coverage needs to account for the weather-head, insulator, riser and meter base - things not covered in interior line coverage plans.
What electrical repair services are covered by a home warranty?
We realize that many homeowners don’t always have the expendable income to shell out for expensive home repairs. That’s why we offer a variety so you don’t have to worry in the event you have a home repair issue covered on your plan.
