What is Equipment Breakdown Insurance?
It pays expenses to limit loss, speed repairs and business recovery. It can even include the cost of spoiled products or materials. Most standard property policies exclude this coverage. It includes damage caused by:
- Short Circuit Electrical Arching
- Mechanical Breakdown
- Power Surges
- Boiler Damage
- Motor Burnout
- Operator Error
ElectricaI Distribution Systems
Lost power often means lost income and customers. A short circuit in one part of an electrical distribution system can easily spread to other parts because panels, circuit breakers and cables are interconnected. A loose connection, dust or high humidity is all it takes.
Heating and Cooling Systems
Heating and cooling are essential to customer comfort and employee productivity. Yet HVAC failures are common and boilers and pressure vessels that distribute heat and hot water are vulnerable. Income is often lost while this equipment is repaired or replaced - at significant cost.
When the phones go down, so does a business. Phone circuitry is easily affected by voltage spikes, heat, vibration and moisture. It doesn't take much.
Today, what business doesn't depend on computers? Yet the highly sensitive and fragile technology computers rely on is highly susceptible to damage.
What costs more, refrigeration system repairs or the damaged perishables? Add replacement refrigerant to the equation and the expenses escalate.
