Acuity offers one of the more comprehensive but affordable home insurance products on the market today. Acuity is one of the few carriers that offers guaranteed replacement cost for your home, meaning they’ll pay to repair or rebuild it regardless the cost.
Adding to the appeal, Acuity has an A+ rating with A.M. Best — the benchmark for insurance companies’ financial strength — and glowing insurance claim reviews on Trustpilot. Acuity also offers numerous discount options, like a 20% discount if you bundle your home insurance with another Acuity property insurance policy, along with a hefty discount if you pay your insurance premiums up front.
However, Acuity is only available in 27 states, which is rather sparse when you consider the company’s been around for almost a century. Another downside is if you have a lot of expensive valuables, Acuity’s Coverage Enhancements Plus endorsement (which you can get for an extra $60 a year) may not be enough coverage for all of your stuff. The maximum they’ll pay out with that endorsement for jewelry, for example, is $3,500.

Acuity homeowners insurance is available in 27 states.
Acuity keeps their policy offerings fairly simple, offering a standard home insurance policy with the six core coverages. But Acuity also has a number of cheap policy add-ons and coverage endorsements that are more than worth the extra few dollars a month, such as:
The amount you pay for an Acuity policy will depend on where you live, the age and build of your home, your credit score, and a number of other rating factors. Here’s a quote for a 50-year-old, 1,800-square-foot single-family home with guaranteed replacement cost for the home and replacement cost for personal belongings, as well as a $1,000 deductible.
|Primary coverages||Policy limits|
|Medical payments for guests||$5,000|

Once you’re at the quote page, you have the option of customizing the policy to your liking, depending on if you want more or less coverage. If you make any changes, Acuity will generate you a new quote in seconds so you can see how adding or forgoing certain coverages can affect your policy cost.
If you’d like to file a claim with Acuity, you have a few options. You can call their claims center, file a claim through their website, or report the loss through their mobile app.
