System or appliance under manufacturer’s warranty – is it covered?


This is a guest post from our partners at Old Republic Home Protection.

Some plan holders may have newer home systems or appliances covered by a manufacturer’s warranty. How does Old Republic Home Protection provide home warranty coverage in those circumstances?

Essential, Standard, and Ultimate Protection
Per the home warranty plans, we do not cover “any costs related to the repair or replacement of systems, appliances, or components covered, in whole or in part, by an existing manufacturer/distributor or other warranty.”

Thus, Old Republic Home Protection does not cover the parts or labor costs associated with any system or appliance under an existing manufacturer’s warranty for Essential, Standard, or Ultimate Protection plan holders.

Platinum Protection and New Construction
Plan holders who purchased a Platinum Protection Plan or a 4-year New Construction Plan receive coverage for labor and other specified costs for covered repairs/replacements, but not for equipment or component costs covered by an existing manufacturer’s warranty.
