Choosing a Home Warranty is often times a wise choice.
Prior to your new home purchase...you had a Home Inspection, and based upon that you moved forward appropriately knowing the condition of the home you were buying.
But a home warranty takes it a step further! After the home purchase...you are now happily living in YOUR NEW HOME! Just then, UNEXPECTEDLY, the refrigerator stops working, the dishwasher, the washer/dryer...perhaps the air conditioning unit! This is where a Home Warranty will come into play and assist. Depending on the plan you choose, many of those repairs and/or replacements will be covered.
Please refer to this list of reputable Home Warranty companies.
