How many home warranties can offer you a one-year comfort guarantee and a three-year energy usage guarantee? We know of one: Right Choice Homes from Jackson EMC.*
In this latest update from Jackson EMC, Home Energy Expert and Jackson EMC spokesperson Ty Pennington explains the Right Choice warranty program.
A home warranty is a great form of financial protection against expensive, unforeseen home repairs, but it’s also up to you to maintain your warranty and protect your investment.
Step One: Perform Regular Maintenance on Your Heat Pump
The first step to maintaining your warrant is to have your heat pump inspected and serviced by a licensed or qualified HVAC contractor annually or as recommended by the equipment manufacturer. Also, don’t forget to change the filter as often as the manufacturer recommends.
Step Two: Report Lifestyle Changes
Certain types of recreational electrical equipment such as RVs, hot tubs and pool pumps could affect your warranty. During the initial planning stages, items such as these may not have been considered and using them could void your warranty. Always call Right Choice to discuss your options.
Step Three: Report Modifications to the Home
During the time you own your home, the way you use different rooms may change. Keep in mind this could affect your warranty. If you modify or alter the home during the first three years like changing a bedroom to an office notify Right Choice. They can help to test and certify the changes to protect your warranty. If you plan to make structural changes like finishing a basement or bonus room it is important to call during the planning stage. Right Choice technicians can help you make construction choices that meet the Right Choice standards and keep your comfort and energy usage warranties valid.
Step Four: Report Changes in Occupancy
The number of occupants has a large impact on energy usage. Your usage warranty assumed a set number of occupants based on the size of the home. Guests, especially ones that decide to move in, could have a negative effect on your warranty.
Step Five: Be Energy Conscious
In terms of your thermostat, it’s best to keep it set to 72 degrees or below during heating season. When you need to cool the house set it to 75 degrees or above. Always keep an eye on it because these are the best settings for your home and your energy usage warranty is based on those settings.
“When I’m comfortable in my house it means more time to relax and enjoy the things I love,” Ty explains. “And, with a Right Choice Home from Jackson EMC, I have a feeling you are going to be comfy for years to come.”
