Home Service Program for Pre-Owned Homes

If you’ve heard of home service plans, you may have wondered how they differ from home insurance. The short answer is, they both protect different aspects of your home. While home insurance will protect the actual building or structure, a home service plan protects the main systems of your home (heating, cooling, electrical, etc.) and major appliances.
