Equipment Breakdown Coverage

Equipment Breakdown Coverage: An Alternative to Your Home Warranty

Equipment Breakdown Coverage is an additional coverage that can be added to your homeowner, condo or renters policy with The Hartford. It provides protection for items such as your home’s appliances, furnace or HVAC system in case of an electrical or mechanical breakdown. It can also cover additional charges to expedite repairs or replacement when needed.

Why Is Equipment Breakdown Coverage Valuable?

This coverage is an inexpensive way to protect your home’s mechanical systems and appliances which can be very costly to repair out of pocket. With this additional endorsement, all you pay is your deductible and The Hartford pays to repair or replace your machinery.
Equipment Breakdown Coverage can be a great alternative to a home warranty. It provides added protection not included in a basic homeowners policy and peace of mind, knowing that you are prepared for the unexpected.
Insurance Coverage availability varies by state.
