Home Insurance or Home Warranty?
Homeowners insurance provides you the coverage necessary to know your home is protected against unexpected damages from perils such as fire, theft, vandalism, and civil commotion. However, when it relates to repairs or maintenance of your appliances, a home insurance policy does not cover those items, but a home warranty will.
Just like a car, one would not call their insurance for new tires or an oil change, the basic maintenance it needs, but instead refer to a potential car warranty that offered those services. The main difference between an insurance policy and a warranty policy is that the insurance on the home is mandated by the lender as opposed to the warranty that is not.
We hope that in sharing this vital information, we answer some concerns or doubts about your policy.
Be Water Wise
Clean, bountiful water is one of the most important resources around the world. No matter where you are in the world, you can do your part to conserve water by both saving water from being wasted and protecting water from becoming polluted. Here are some tips on being water wise as we go into hotter months.
Shorten your showers – On average, 18 gallons of water are used per person for a 10-minute shower. Reducing shower time can save millions of gallons if the majority would participate in quicker showers.
Do the dishes – Although the jury may be out on this still, dishwashers typically require more water than if one were to wash the dishes by hand.
Mulch, mulch, mulch – Mulch helps regulate soil temperature and retains water even in hot weather. This allows for the homeowner to use less water.
Fix Your Leaks – Hiring a licensed plumber to inspect water lines, or installing a wifi water sensor to detect early leaks can save you money on your water bill and help save you the money and hassle of water damage.

5 Household Items to Always Keep Stocked
There are certain things that you should always have in stock at home. You know, staples that are constantly used and frequently replaced. There are five items however that should never run out of as they are not only helpful around your home but during an emergency as well.
First up, vinegar. You can use vinegar to clean your microwave; remove grease; clean carpeting; as a furniture polish; and to disinfect food by diluting it in water and soaking your food briefly before consuming.
Second, rubber gloves! They can come in handy daily for dishes, but also in emergencies can protect your hands from rough edges or glass or hazardous materials.
Third, water! Always best to keep a stash of bottled water somewhere in the house. You can also use the water from your water heater tank in case of serious emergency.
Fourth in line, salt. Salt can be used to season food but also diluted in water for dental rinse, wound cleaning, and hydration.
Last, aluminum foil. Aluminum foil isn’t just to keep your food warm and covered. Its also used to clean dishes by turning it into a ball and if needed it can be folded into a sharp tool.
We hope this list inspired you to remember these items on your next trip to the store.
