Appliances and systems keep our homes (and lives) running smoothly until there’s a problem. If you have a home warranty with 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty (2-10 HBW), you don’t have to worry about your covered appliances or systems ruining your budget when an unexpected breakdown occurs.
Most homeowners don’t know where their major appliances and systems are within their usable lifespan. In fact, Zillow’s 2018 Consumer Housing Trends Report shows that “not knowing what or when things will break” is one of the top challenges for homeowners. The good news is . . . there’s an app for that!
With the Manor app, all you have to do is take a few pictures of your appliances and systems, and you’ll see the age, remaining life and estimated replacement cost. Having this information at your fingertips will let you know which appliances you should keep an eye on and help you plan for future expenses.
If you can take a picture . . .
The Manor app was designed to help you quickly and easily capture information about your appliances and systems. After downloading from the App Store or creating an account with your Android device, you’ll simply take a few pictures, one picture of the unit’s exterior and another of the product label. Don’t worry about finding product labels, there are guides within the app that shows typical placements.
Everything in one place
Within 24 hours of taking the pictures, you’ll have access to everything you need to know about your appliances and systems.
Plan for future expenses
While the individual details are important, it’s also a good idea to have a look at the big picture. Being able to see the aggregate replacement cost of appliances and systems by where they are in their lifecycle is a great way to know how likely your appliance or systems are to a breakdown.
