Get The Most Out Of Your Home Warranty
 

Our goal is to make your home warranty experience as simple and easy as possible. That’s why we have worked hard to create an online network for you to manage your home warranty needs. Through www.myhomewarranty.com you can report and track your claims, view your contract, renew your warranty and even purchase warranties for new properties. Creating a membership is easy! All you need is your contract number and zip code. Then go to www.myhomewarranty.com and click "Register” to get started.

 


Here’s what you can do with your Myhomewarranty membership:

Request Repairs and Schedule an Appointment

If you need to request a repair or service on a covered system and prefer to do it online, log into your account and in minutes you can have your claim set up and in our system. Then, you’ll receive a call from one of our pre-approved vendors to schedule an appointment for the repair. If HSA’s service provider cannot respond in a timely manner, you may be given the option to use a vendor outside of our network.

Track and View Claims

After you’ve set up a claim you can keep track of its progress and view updates as they happen. Myhomewarranty also records a history of your claims for you to review.

7 Ways to Save Money In Your New Home

 
What's Next?
Buying a home is one of the largest (and most expensive) investments you’ll ever make. When you finally take the plunge, it makes sense you’ll want to save money while you get used to homeownership. Here are 7 tips for pinching pennies in those first few months:

Run appliances at night- Check your electric bill to see if the company charges different rates for on-peak and off-peak hours. If they do, you could save money by using large appliances at night (during off-peak hours). You can often save a lot by changing your laundry and dishwasher routines, because these appliances use a lot of water and electricity per cycle. 

Clean with vinegar- Why spend money on 10 different cleaners when you can use something just as effective and only spend pennies on the dollar? Martha Stewart says mixing equal parts water and vinegar will disinfect floors and bathrooms, and clean glass without leaving streaks. It’s also nontoxic, and safe to use around kids and pets. And don’t worry—the scent will leave as soon as the space is dry.

How To Make Your Dryer More Efficient














In our busy lives it’s easy to overlook some of the basic maintenance steps that help many of the every day appliances we depend on run more efficiently and last longer. Check out the following tips to make sure your dryer is running smoothly, and if you have other home appliances that aren’t working as well as they used to, check out our Appliance Resource Center for quick fixes and maintenance tips for almost every major appliance in your home.

Wash Your Lint Filter
Make sure to wash the lint filter with soapy water and a brush every three to four months to remove invisible chemical residues that can restrict airflow. Here’s an easy test to see just how much of a difference this can make: take out your lint filter and remove any lint you see. Take the filter to your sink and run hot water over it. Notice how the water pools on the mesh and doesn’t drain through? That’s due to residue from fabric sheets, fabric softeners and laundry detergent ingredients which contribute to an unseen film or waxy buildup on the lint screen.
