With Hurricane Irene heading straight for Boston I finally got around to calling my insurance company to see if I needed to make any changes to my homeowners’ coverage now that we have this expensive solar awning on our home. I’ve been meaning to do it once the installation was finished, but nothing like a natural disaster heading our way to motivate me. It took less than 15 minutes to talk to an agent and get our homeowners’ coverage increased by the installation cost of the solar awning. Now for only $7/month, I can stop worrying about whether our solar installation is insured, IT IS!
Now I need to recommend this as a step for our solar contractor to recommend to all their customers when they install solar.
What are you doing to prepare for Hurricane Irene or other natural disasters?
