I failed to mention that this was in the HVHZ so keeping the A1 rating is important to the homeowner.

It is funny you mentioned this (not much of a difference between A1, A2 and A3 outside of the HVHZ) because that has been my experience too up until about 6 to 9 months ago. Every so often now, I am hearing that homeowners are not getting credit for A3 and must improve to A1 for a credit. I should keep track of the insurance company (or companies) doing this but I haven't.

I would like to know how exactly how the opening credits work too. I do know that Citizens does not have a breakdown of A (at least it didn't on my house - Exposure C). It is either A, B, C, or X. And, there is little or no credit for C.
