  • Loss due to collapse of building
  • Electrical damage (excluding tubes or transistors) from artificially generated electricity such as power surges, etc.
  • Weight of snow- loss from weight of ice, snow or sleet to buildings

  • Heater or heating losses- (explosion, etc., of steam or water heating system and appliances)
  • Personal liability to tradespeople, guest or other persons injured by occurrences at your home
  • Medical expenses for injuries to others at your premises, or from your actions, whether you're liable or not
  • Damage to property of others caused by anyone in your family, liable or not, up to a specified limit
  • Cost of defending suits including attorney fees, etc., until coverage is exhausted, liable or not, and
  • Off-premises injury to others arising from acts of members of your family or pets- anywhere.

The Pacer includes these extras- coverage for the unexpected hazards and other perils not specifically excluded in your policy, like:

  • Water seepage in attic (e.g., water from a downpour saturates plaster causing the ceiling to collapse)
  • Overheated appliances (e.g., failure of thermostat causes coffee maker to overheat, scorching counter top)
  • Dropped or fallen object (e.g., mirror or light fixture falls and chips the lavatory basin, requiring replacement of the fixture)
  • Accidental damage (e.g., homeowner accidentally damages garage in attempting to cut down a tree)
  • Building damage (e.g., homeowner falls accidentally, damaging rafters in attempting to insulate attic)

But then, they made it even better...
Additional Pacer extras automatically included. Replacement cost coverage* for your home and your personal property with no deduction for depreciation. Extra dwelling protection… if the cost to replace your home exceeds your coverage limit, they will increase the stated amount of insurance by up to 25%; if it is found that the increase in cost is due to a spike because of a weather covered cause of loss, subject to policy provisions.  Example: a large area is damaged by wind and hail, causing a spike in the cost of labor and materials for the area. 

  • Loss of use (no $ limit up to twelve months)
  • Sewer back-up ($2,500 limit)
  • Lock replacement ($250 limit/no deductible)
