Standard homeowners insurance policies will typically help pay to repair damage caused by certain risks, or perils, including:
● Fire and smoke
● Windstorm or hail
● Falling objects
● Frozen plumbing
● Water damage from plumbing, water heater, heating or cooling system or appliance
Actual cash value refers to the current value of property measured in cash. Insurance adjusters typically arrive at the ACV amount by taking the replacement cost and deducting depreciation that’s brought about by wear and tear and age
Replacement cost is a payment equal to the amount you’d pay to replace whatever was damaged or stolen at today’s cost.
Home insurance policies in Florida provide the following types of coverage:

The size, materials used , and condition of your house will affect the insurance premium rate.
How old or new your plumbing and electrical systems will affect your insurance premium.

Expect to pay a higher premium if you live in an area prone to natural disasters, floods, and crime.
Installing security measures such as alarm systems, locks, or security cameras can reduce premiums.
Living near a firehouse or fire hydrant can lower premiums. Having fire hazards like outdated heating systems or wood-burning stoves can increases premiums.
Houses that are used to run businesses run higher risks of facing lawsuits, theft, and accidents, consequently incurring higher premiums.
Being married, owning a dog, or being an avid smoker can affect your HO Florida insurance premium.
The higher the deductible, the more money you can save on your premiums. Choosing the right deductible amount is important for your finances in the long run.
The more often claims are filed, the higher the premium is. Remember that claims you have filed at previous residences will follow you.
You can not be refused coverage because of low credit. On the other hand, you can be offered a discount on your premium if you have a higher credit score.
