Best Answer

Most homeowner policies would have coverage for a fire loss. However I recommend that you get an estimate first for repair of the carpet. This is because carpet is pretty cheap these days and the cost may be below your deductible. If it is cheaper than your deductible then I'd just have it fixed myself. No point in having a claim on my history if the cost is below what I would have to pay anyway. If it's much above the deductible then I'd still have it fixed and send the bill to my insurer for reimbursement.

Will homeowners insurance cover replacement of furnace due to a cracked heat exchanger and combustion chamber Furnace is only 11 years old.?

The first thing you need to determine is what caused the damage to the heat exchanger and combustion chamber? If the damage was a result of a "puff back" (which to my knowledge only occurs with oil furnaces) or sudden and accidental water damage, then the smoke or water damage is covered. However, the damage to the furnace itself is not covered. The reason for this is that insurance doesn't want to cover appliance malfunction... which is actually understandable, considering that warranty insurance is available. I'm pretty sure that the only time appliances are replaced is when they are completely ruined due to a situation that the appliance itself did not cause (such as fire, or water leaking from the bathtub upstairs into the kitchen below).

Does your insurance cover the damaged caused by a broken dish washerleaking?

In most states the answer to this question is "yes". Sudden and accidental water damage is covered by most HO-3 policies (the TX equivalent to the HO-3 is the HO-B, and sometimes the HO-A+). Although the insurance company will repair the water damage, they will not cover the appliance that covered this damage. The reason the appliance is not covered is because "appliance malfunction" isn't a covered peril.
