Do you live with a robot vacuum named Vance, a coffee pot called Joe, or another household item you’ve given a special name? If so, you’re far from alone. It’s pretty common for people to name inanimate objects.

Giving human form or attributes to these things is called anthropomorphizing. And with more people staying at home, and buying new toys and gadgets, there is more and more to name. Earlier this year, we conducted an informal survey of our e-newsletter subscribers to see just what they’ve been naming (or anthropomorphizing) around the house.

Check out the infographic below to see the results.

Insurance for your Home and Appliances (To Name a Few)

Does Wally the washing machine or Frank Fridge need to be replaced? (Sorry, guys; it was good while it lasted.) Check out our blog story on when to replace appliances and how to protect your home from issues that can arise from crockpots or your dryer.

What about a home inventory list to make sure all your household “friends” are accounted for? Making a list of what is in your home will come in handy just in case you ever have a claim and need to do a roll call. Here’s how to get your home inventory started.

Good news: You can get an extra cushion of protection for major appliances and home systems right in your homeowners insurance policy with our Equipment Breakdown Coverage.

If you are unsure what your home insurance can cover – and what it can’t – ask your local ERIE agent.
