There are several factors that insurance providers consider when prescribing an insurance package.
First, there is the age of your home. Depending on how old the components of your home are, your insurance rate will be higher or lower. This is because old equipment has more potential to be hazardous. For instance, old pipes are more likely to crack, and older electrical systems have a higher chance of malfunction.
Another factor is the heating system you use. Forced air furnaces or electric heat pose less of a risk than oil heating, but the age and condition of your tank are also important to make an assessment. Wood stoves offer many benefits to a home and bring in potential danger such as fires and carbon monoxide poisoning, so wood stoves increase coverage costs.
Of course, certain areas are safer than others so where you live is also a determining factor. Insurers keep track of policies by location, and if you live in an area where there are frequent claims made, your insurance will need to reflect that.
