More excellent home insurance coverage options available through Gilbert Insurance:
In addition to the wide range of home insurance solutions already discussed, Gilbert offers homeowners these two exceptional and affordable coverage options that are worth your strong consideration:

  • Home Systems Protection Coverage provides up to $50,000 coverage for damage caused by a sudden and accidental mechanical or electrical breakdown for systems and equipment such as central air conditioning, water heaters, solar energy, well pumps, radian flooring, furnaces and heat pumps, pool and spa pumps and more
  • Service Line Protection Coverage provides up to $10,000 for repair or replacement of service lines that come into your property from the street, such as gas, power, water, and sewer piping or wiring

Without these endorsements in place, if these critical systems or service lines were to be damaged or destroyed, then you would likely be responsible for thousands of dollars in expensive repairs, not only for your ruined equipment but also for any resulting losses to yours and other’s property.

For more information about these coverage options and how to include them in a new or current home insurance policy, please contact a Gilbert professional at (781) 942-2225.
