I’m so glad that we bought a home warranty

Back when we bought our house last year, my husband and I were on the fence about whether or not we wanted to buy the home warranty that they offered us when we were closing on the house.

At that point, it seemed like it was just one more thing that they wanted us to spend money on! For us, every penny counted when we were closing on our house and we weren’t sure that we wanted to spend any more on a home warranty.

We went back and forth on it for a while, discussing all of the pros and cons about buying the home warranty along with the house itself. Finally, we decided to get the home warranty just because it covered the furnace and the air conditioning system in the new house. Since we had never purchased a house before, we were a little bit concerned about large appliances and things like a furnace and a central air conditioning system. We had never had to pay for repairs on a heating and cooling system before and we were afraid that they might end up being too much to deal with. Well, we purchased the home warranty, and it turns out that it was a really good thing that we did. We had no problems for the first six months or so, but then when we turned the furnace on for the first time this winter, we heard a big thunk and there was a terrible burning sound from the basement. We ended up having to totally replace the furnace, but at least it was covered by the warranty!
