Can you believe the timing of this?
Your home owner's policy will spell out what is covered by it. As previously stated, unless there was an event that caused damage to the unit it's vary unlikely that repair or replacement will be covered by your insurance. Policies normally cover loss because of an unexpected event not normal wear and tear.
For the future, you might want to look into a home warranty plan.
American Home Shield is one company we use that offers replacements for many items if they can't be repaired. The cost for an average home can run in the $500+ range (depending on what you select)....you pay a service fee ($95), and any cost to repair the items above that are covered by the plan.
