Mutual Assurance Society of Virginia is pleased to offer Equipment Breakdown coverage through your Homeowners Insurance policy.  This important coverage offers an alternative to home warranty plans and includes a wide array of coverage from large heating and cooling systems to your smaller electronic devices.    

If your home utilizes electricity, adding Equipment Breakdown coverage to your homeowners policy can help protect you against an expensive and unexpected repair cost.   

Equipment Breakdown coverage includes electrical, mechanical, and pressure system  breakdown for your “Assured Premises.” And we have now extended coverage to include “Off Premises Equipment” that will help protect important property while traveling or away on vacation.
