Whether you’re a first time home buyer or you’ve owned your home for several years having a home warranty service contract is an important part of being a homeowner. At some point your appliances will need repairs or they will need to be replaced all together. When you have a home warranty contract you don’t have to worry about expensive repairs or replacement of the appliances and system components that are covered.
You may have heard about home warranties or know someone who has one but you aren’t quite sure what they are or what they cover. A home warranty service contract is an annual contract that covers unlimited service calls, unlimited labor and repairs of kitchen appliances as well as your washer, dryer and water heater. There are a few home service contracts to choose from. When you’re looking for the right home warranty provider it’s critical that you understand the difference between the companies you’re considering.
What Makes ECM Home Warranties Different
ECM (East Coast Mechanical) is located in Boynton Beach and we have been servicing Broward, Palm Beach, Martin Counties and Indian River Counties for over 30 years. ECM is a family owned company that has been taking care of the A/C, plumbing, electrical and home service warranty needs (which includes appliances) of South Floridians since 1985.
ECM’s technicians are highly trained certified professionals that get the job done right the first time. We offer traditional home warranty contracts that lock you into one set price without any additional costs or deductibles. We offer two types of home warranty plans traditional and deductible.
Our traditional extended service contract does not include a deductible on covered equipment. There are no service fees or costs per visit. Other home warranty providers do not offer traditional contracts. ECM’s deductible contracts include a $45 deductible at the time of service, which is a great savings. Keep in mind that for less than a $1 a day your home’s mechanical systems will be protected for one full year. ECM provides unlimited protection with technicians available same day or next day. We will always repair the product and in the event that we can’t repair a product we will replace it up to the maximum replacement limit on the home warranty agreement.
It’s critical that you register your appliances and A/C within 30 days of the purchase date. ECM registers your appliances, A/C and equipment on the manufacturers website portal for you making sure you get the full warranty. If you purchase a new A/C and it is not registered within 30 days your warranty will last five years rather than the full 10 years they offer. We make sure you’re fully covered.

What You Get with Other Home Warranty Providers
The majority of home warranty provider offices are located in other states. It’s important to understand that many home warranty companies use small unknown subcontractors in the area, which lead to lower quality work.
• Call center from another state that uses subcontractors from local vendors
• Home warranty contracts with $75, $100, $125 deductibles
• They don’t offer traditional contracts without deductibles
• You don’t get that personal touch and attention to detail that you do with a local, family owned company
When you purchase a home warranty contract from ECM you have the guarantee that our technicians are trained, certified and reliable. We will help you find the service plan that fits your particular needs. If you’re a homeowner keep in mind that your appliances will need repairs and breakdown at least three times per year, and older A/C units and appliances have a longer life span than the newer appliances (see our guide).
When you don’t have a home warranty plan in place repairs can add up and become very expensive. A home warranty plan with ECM gives you peace of mind knowing that you don’t have to worry if your A/C breaks down and it’s the middle of summer. You know you’re working with a company that hires qualified technicians that will show up on time and get the job done right!
