      What to know about buying a home warranty in Nevada

      las vegas nevada skyline

      Nevada is known for its extremely hot summers, receiving 20 days per year that register as dangerous on the National Weather Service’s heat index. This consistent, intense heat can wear on many home appliances and systems, especially your air conditioning system.

      It’s important to find a plan that includes coverage for your HVAC because just one day without air conditioning during a Nevada summer is more than enough — especially as temperatures continue to rise in the state, causing systems to work overtime.

      This coverage isn’t included in all plans, so you need to read the fine print to understand exactly what’s covered and to what extent in the plan you choose. This could mean spending more money on a comprehensive plan or adding a specialty plan that only covers your HVAC.

      If you have a pool on your property to escape the heat, it’s also worth making sure that it’s covered by your home warranty. This is less critical than coverage for your air conditioning, but coverage for pools is usually available as a relatively affordable add-on with most contracts.

      Home warranty regulations in Nevada

      In Nevada, service contracts are regulated by the Division of Insurance, and you can find a list of licensed service contract providers on its website.

      When you purchase a home warranty in Nevada, your home warranty provider is required to provide you with a receipt or written evidence of purchase. Home warranty companies in Nevada are also required to obtain a certificate of registration from the state government and supply proof of financial security. These requirements help make sure that you are protected throughout the lifetime of your contract.

      If your warranty provider fails to perform its duties as outlined in your service contract within 60 days of your making a claim, you can apply to the company’s contractual liability insurance policy to do the work, assuming it has one.

      Home warranty companies in Nevada are also required to maintain transaction records of each contract for at least one year after the expiration of the contract, including a description of each claim you made.

      Nevada home warranty FAQ

      Based on quotes from our top picks, the average cost of a home warranty in Nevada is between $30 and $60 per month. This puts Nevada slightly below the national average, although home warranty plans in the Silver State can cost more.

      Your cost depends on the company and coverage you choose. If you add coverage for certain features, like a swimming pool, expect to pay extra.

      Some companies offer ways to save money on coverage, including tailoring their service fees or letting you choose a specialty policy for limited coverage. Some may also offer discounts for bundling packages or paying in advance, but our quotes don’t reflect that because those options may not be available consistently.

      If you’re looking for peace of mind against the high price of home repairs, a home warranty isn’t a bad option. While it’s impossible to guarantee that your contract will save you money in the long run (your home may stay in perfect working order), some homeowners do see significant savings, and many people enjoy knowing that their homes are covered if they need it.
      This process varies from provider to provider.

      Depending on the home warranty company you choose, you may be able to pick your own contractors for service. However, most companies have their own networks of contractors that they work with. This takes some of the work off of your plate, but it can be problematic if their technicians aren’t very good.

      Bottom line

      Choosing a home warranty company in Nevada is fairly simple as long as you understand what you need covered and how the industry works. Preparing yourself before you start the comparison process is a good way to set yourself up for success and to make the process as easy as possible.
