Why You Should Get a Plan
A faulty 200 amp electrical panel can cost up to $1,248 to replace.*
Problems with your interior electrical wiring can cause:
- faulty outlets and wall switches
- partial or full home “blackout”
- shorts in wiring causing fixtures to stop working or lights to flicker
As a homeowner, you may be responsible for the interior electrical system in your home, and you may need to arrange and pay for any necessary repairs. With the Interior Electrics Plus EV Charger Protection plan from HomeServe, your interior electric components and EV charger will be protected against indoor wiring breakdowns.

If you drive an electric vehicle (EV), you know how important your level 2 charger is to daily life. An EV level 2 charger breakdown or malfunction is a huge inconvenience. You can't drive to work, the kids to school, or even to the doctor or grocery store. That's why you want your EV charger and the electrical line that feeds it to be functional 24/7.
Most basic homeowners insurance doesn't cover repairs to the interior electrical line and your electrical vehicle (EV) home charger. Be prepared with an affordable repair plan called Interior Electric With EV Charger Protection from HomeServe, which includes a $500 reimbursement for a covered replacement EV Charger and up to $2,500 of annual coverage for Interior Electric.
