What is a home warranty and where do I buy one?
Home warranties aren't insurance, but some insurance companies are starting to sell them. A home warranty will cover repair costs on items in your home such as your refrigerator and other major appliances, or your central air conditioning system. You do need to have everything in good working order before purchasing a home warranty. For more information on home warranties, read Home warranties pick up where insurance leaves off.
