"It went badly from then on. I informed AHS on 9/13 that I wanted to cash out my AHS warranty and go with a local furnace provider. They said they would call me back but didn't. I called again about the cash out on 9/16/13. The rep told me she would look into it but had no note regarding cash out. Instead, AHS decided to send a second contractor (Efficient Air Systems) who didn't come until 9/24/13. They spent all of 10 minutes, looked at the sign on the furnace that said it was inoperable, and then just left. They called on 10/2/13 and stated they were submitting a $1400 price to AHS.
I went ahead and had the local company install a furnace as I have

disease and badly need the house temperature regulated with heat and air.
I hadn't heard anything from AHS until 10/14 at which time I requested the status of my cash out request. AHS informed me that they would only pay $2084 and only after I submit an itemized listing of what the furnace and installation cost.
It cost over $5780 which is the average oil furnace cost for the size of my house. Please see http://furnacepriceguides.com/oil-furnace/
I am so fed up with this company to which I have been paying

for over 6 years. You have to fight for everything even though the contract states that they will cover such things as furnaces, installation, and haul away of old equipment and that cash out is a viable option.

"I dropped their service because anytime I needed their service they told me many things weren't covered. There are lots of loop holes in their coverage for air conditioning and that is what I needed most."

"Its a great service if you get good technicians. If you get a technician that doesn't know what they're doing, its bad because they will have to send out more people until someone gets it right. For each technician they send out, one of us has to take a day off work."

"The service rep who took my call indicated that the contractor would contact me within 24 hours of my call to set up an appointment. That didn't happen. I had to call

again later the next day and get the phone number for the contractor so I could call them myself and schedule a visit. I couldn't afford to wait. But the plumbing contractor couldn't come out until the middle of the following week. I told the plumbing company's service rep that I had a slow leak in one of the drain pipes in the crawlspace. She seemed to think that it wasn't urgent but said that if the tech could get out earlier that they would let me know--but they arrived the day of my appointment. But who knows what might've happened or how bigger the problem might've gotten because of the wait? Lucky for me, it didn't."

"had a contract with AHS for about 5 years. My main interest in obtaining their services were problimatic experiences with janitrol HVAC systems. The house I had purchased had a two zone Janitrol HVAC systems. First though I did have other experiences with my microwave and dishwasher. The dishwasher was replaced and the choice I had was to take $300 cash or receive a DW of their choice installed. I took the DW installed and it was as expected a low end model. The Microwave stopped working and it was determined the most expensive part was no longer working. The cost for
Richmond Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
to make the repir was nearly $500. Im sure they have a contract with AHS but it seems silly to repair a 11 year old microwave for $500.
The big thing was my 2 zone HVACs. Over the course of the five years I had a contract with AHS each year I had ay least one repair on my Janitrol ACs. Many times it was low on freon due to leaks or corroded lines. But 2011 I had to get a repair on one of the systems and had no AC downstairs for several weeks of repair attemtps. In the end they had to replace both the indoor and outdoor coils. I am told it woudl have been close to the same price to install an new system. In 2012 my second AC unit failed and replacement was on the table. But AHS does not pay for many of the required itmes included in a repair. In the end I would have had to pay over $2000 for the repair on top of the deductible of $60. (The deductible goes up almost always annualy) I chose to install new and drop AHS. AHS did pay about $1500 towards the new unit but only after hasseling with their customer call center and then resorting to writing the CEO of AHS and the parent company.
SO having said that, if you use a home warrentte company expect to be hasseled when repairs are needed and expect onyl bandaid repairs. RARELY will they replace an item.

"I recently made purchases of all new appliances and wanted to find out more about HTH service plans. Initially I had contacted this company in regards to their home warranty service plan which I concluded as being very competive with similar plans after listening to the rep and visiting the website. The representative was very professional and knowledgeable about the plan and referred me to the website for additional information if needed after our call. Prior to ending the call, I scheduled an appointment to have my home inspected two weeks later. The rep arrived a few minutes late but immediately explained the reason for doing so (traffic related). After the inspecition, I made the decision to delay the purchase of the home warranty (since I have all new appliances). My decision was a result of the HTH rep advice upon inspection and my own. Although, I do plan to re-visit the website again before year end.
Surprisingly - in addition to my questions about the home warranty, the rep also provided information and feedback on some minor home projects I had in progress and offered great advice and provided info for a general contractor in my area in which I contacted the same day. The general contractor was available the same day of my inspection and the HTH rep remained in the area to double back and supervise the job. The project was completed the same day and turned out great! In addition to the home warranty services the HTH rep informed me that they have a network of contractors who services homes on their behalf as it relates to claims. I was so happy with the work that I'm scheduling another home project in the coming months.
