  • How does a Plumbing Essentials Plan help me?
    As a homeowner, you are responsible for the interior plumbing and drains in your home. Many basic homeowner's insurance policies do not cover repair of interior plumbing and drains. Our plans can help safeguard you against the cost of unexpected repairs.

 

The Direct Energy Essentials Plans ("Plan") are provided by Home Warranty of America, Inc., a Direct Energy company. Direct Energy's affiliates, franchisees, and/or independent contractors will be performing various services under the Plan. Customers must sign up for 1-year commitment (the "Initial Term").There is a 30-day waiting period before coverage begins under the repair plan. Upon expiration of the Initial Term, the Plan will automatically renew at our then current standard rate and terms unless the customer opts out of the auto-renewal option in writing by mail at P.O. Box 500, Lincolnshire, IL 60069 or by email at cancel@hwahomewarranty.com. Sales tax will be added in select states.
