PSEG has added a service that allows homeowners to purchase repair and protection plans for their residences.
Notification about the service triggered discussion on the Greenlawn neighborhood on the NextDoor app, with several people suspecting that the notices were a scam.
Not so, PSEG said Thursday. It began notifying residents of the service, which becomes available this month.
HomeServe USA will offer PSEG WorryFree plans and home repair services to residents and administer the plans and services.
The key points of the service:
- HomeServe USA is an independent service provider that helps homeowners protect against the expense and inconvenience of water, sewer, electrical, heating, and cooling home repair emergencies.
- PSEG Long Island electric customers have no obligation to purchase PSEG WorryFree services from HomeServe USA, and their decision whether to purchase has no effect on their electric service from PSEG Long Island or its cost.
- HomeServe USA will offer PSEG WorryFree plans and home repair services to Long Island residents and HomeServe USA will administer the plans and services.
