"They have always done a good job. I have used them for several years now. I like that I am charged a flat fee to have a technician come out.

It's important to carefully review the components of a home warranty plan before you sign a contract.(Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Maggie T. of Vienna, Va.)

7 components of a good home warranty

Home warranty companies are the number one most complained about category on Angie’s List. If you decide to purchase a warranty, look for the components of a good home warranty before signing the contract.

Home warranties

Year after year home warranty companies have topped the Angie's List most complained about category list, with nearly half of member reports in this category rating these companies unfavorably. The key behind this appears to be an expectations gap between the companies and their clients regarding what is covered and whether service calls on covered items are entirely free.

A home warranty is a good marketing tool for a home seller. Before you offer one to a potential homebuyer, make sure you do your research on the company.

Home warranties don't always come with the kind of robust protection and security homeowners expect. Here's a quick breakdown on the real costs, and real benefits, of purchasing a warranty for your home.

Angie's List
Warranty Companies - Home

A home warranty, or home service contract, provides service, repair or replacement on a home’s major systems and appliances for a usual term of one year. They've also topped our list of most-complained about categories for three years running.

First, call your insurance company and tell them you do not want any proceeds paid to the contractor under your policy as you are not going with them.  This way they can not collect money on your behalf.  Insurance will typically have you sign a form for release of funds anyway but this is a good extra step to make sure your signature isn't forged.  Second, call the contractor and tell them you will not be needing their services afterall.  Did your husband pay a deposit?  If so it may be non-refundable.  Then follow up with a certified letter. 

 

An email as well doesn't hurt but some states don't yet recognize email as a form of communication for legally binding documentation.  This may have changed and I'm sure more states do recognize them as I haven't followed that topic elsewhere as much as I used to.  The contractor's office should be local.  A sure fire way to ensure they got the message is to deliver the letter to the office of the contractor and have someone at the office sign a duplicate stating it has been recieved and read.  There's no arguing whether they received it or not by doing that.

 

Hopefully you've learned your lesson about high pressure sales techniques and storm chasers looking for a quick buck.  Some people find out a much harder way.  While these guys may be legitimate you should always do your homework on a contractor before signing the contract.  Unless you have water running out of the house and the work has to be done on the spot it's not so much of an emergency that it can't wait until the next day.

Consider going to library an reading Consumer Reports rating on home insurance companies in your area.  For affordabilty elect the highest deductable you can stomach.  This will lower your premioum, I went thru Costco, they and Sam's Club can be a valuable resource for home and car insurance. Shop on line with your needs to save money.  Unless you have major assets forget large policy. For your gutter and roofing needs see my blog.

I had pre-paid a home warranty for 3 years for over $1,600. I was told that I could cancel the policy at any point with $50 cancellation fee. The service provided by this company was awful. They denied every claim that I submitted and when I decided to cancel the contract with 1/2 time remaining, I was expecting to receive at least 1/3 of the pre-paid amount. Instead, they deducted all denied claims for which I had already paid a fee and ended up with $200 refund. I had changed from AHS to Choice to save money and at the end, it cost me much more. Not only I lost money, but all the time and effort spent dealing with this company.

We were very pleased with the services. I was reluctant at first in obtaining a Home Warranty but after researching and reading their reviews I purchased it not only for our home but for our rental properties. The 1-800 customer service representative, both times that we had to call were very pleasant to work with and we did not feel rushed. ...More /> In addition, the account representative,

, when we initially purchased was very well versed on the product and explained everything in detail. We have recommended One Guard to our family and friends. We know that stuff breaks and we are so happy that we chose One Guard to protect our homes.

We called in the problem into One Guard whom called in the work order to one of their AC contractors. It happen to be Cooling and Heating of San
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
. The first actual call was on a weekend of 30 Aug 14 when when my AC went out at which time I already knew and was told that the contractor would call me as soon as possible on Monday 1 Oct 14. I understand that since I did not have a medical situation or elderly people that it would not warrant an emergency weekend call. The contractor did contact me and make arrangements to to visit my home 2 Oct 14 when I could be available. Two technicians came out and diagnosed my problem with my unit in less then 30 minutes. Then they took the time to add Freon and try to patch the existing unit as well as blow the drip pipe so that we could get some AC unit approval of a new unit could be obtained and hardware procured and installed. The temporary fix did actually work which we were grateful for in 100 degree weather in Texas. The contractor wrote the report and I was called on 8 Oct 14 by One guard with the approval. The contractor also on 8 Oct 14 to make arrangements to come out to install the new equipment. The equipment was installed and we were cool and running well for a week. Unfortunately we had a small glich with cap and the contractor quickly came out to fix the cap in one day when I call them directly as directed by One Guard. The One Guard Account Executive for San

saw that I had to call back the contractor for the glich and made sure that we had a follow up call. We have had no problems with the system since then. As a matter of fact the system is more efficient then my old system.

We’ve been using them for around 8-9 years. They are great and the service eventually pays off. They technicians they send have been great. We are happy with them and I can’t imagine anyone does any better. We would recommend them.

The service was great. I like that they send someone out promptly. I found in Houston if you have an older home where things may go wrong more frequently they do not want to renew the contract with the customer which I did not like.

I have been using the company for about 15 years. They can do anything around the home that I need. I like that all I have to pay is the service call fee and they will take care of my issue. The staff is very responsive when I call with an issue. They are a good company and are worth every penny you pay for. They are true professionals in all aspects.

I chose this company due in large part to the positive reviews on Angie's List. BAD decision!

I paid over $700 for their best policy which included a pre-existing rider. I wanted the peace of mind to know that in case of an emergency I would have a company behind me to help. Ugh, was I stupid. On the 1st day of coverage (07/19/14) I logged on to their website to report a leaky toilet and non-functioning (upstairs) a.c. I stated honestly that both problems started a couple of days before. I received an email 2 days later stating my service requests had been cancelled because the problems began before my policy was in effect. I called their service center to ask about the pre-existing condition rider. I told the Rep that the problems had not happened when I purchased the policy, but days after. By definition, that is pre-existing. She said, "It would only be a pre-existing condition if you didn't know about it." What kind of sense does THAT make? It was at this time I realized that spending the extra money for that rider was a big mistake. I told this Rep. that it was only my toilet that was the problem since our a.c. was working after all. I told her the a.c. breaker had been tripped and once my husband tested it again, we had working a.c. Oh, and it took 3 emails and calls to get reimbursed for the two $69 fees they charged me for the now cancelled service calls.
Almost 1 full month later I requested a service call on what I believed was the upstairs a.c. unit again. I say "believe" because I was awakened early that day when our a.c. unit began and it sounded like it was laboring. I didn't know if it was the upstairs or down, just knew something sounded "not right". After a brief phone-tag with their company I spoke to a different Rep. who stated they would not be sending anyone out to our residence for the problem because they had a note in my account that stated our upstairs unit was broken. I was told I would need to pay for an a.c. repairman to verify it was working prior to this call or give them a repair statement. I was dumb-founded. Not only had I not been told such a limitation was put on my policy, but the manner in which this was reported to me was robotic and rude. I insisted on a service repairman to check our a.c. since I paid for the policy and I wanted someone to come out to see why it was making a noise that was not normal to the usual function of the system. I told her repeatedly that our unit was working, just didn't sound right. This was in the middle of summer. Of course we wouldn't be able to function in San
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
with no working a.c.!
I received a call immediately from the a.c. company. At least they had good customer service. It was arranged that the service call would be 3 days later (when I was able to take the afternoon off). When the repair team arrived I explained the groaning noise which had happened each day since I had called earlier in the week. They checked the unit and it was at this time we discovered the upstairs unit had stopped working. When, I don't know. They said they would put in an order to get the broken part replaced. I was not told which part was broken. Since this was Friday we had to suffer the whole weekend in 100+ degree So. Texas heat.
I finally called the San

Rep listed on their website after waiting a week with no response!
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
was very polite (the only one in their company, evidently) and apologized for the delay. She assured me she would get my latest $69 service fee reimbursed and find out what was happening. When I told her how rude the Rep was I had spoken to she replied that they usually speak to servicemen all day. Evidently that gives them a pass to treat their customers poorly?
We waited and sweated for several more days. We had to camp in our living and family rooms since it was well over 90 degrees in the upstairs bedrooms this whole time. I finally got a voice mail message from yet another robotic voice stating the repair would not be done. They repeated the same thing about our unit not working since
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
. No apology for the late reply, by the way. I called Ms
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
again and she said she would get our fee returned but that was all she could do. I was so exhausted from this whole situation, but thought I would try 1 more time to find a supervisor to get this whole awful event rectified. At this point my husband got involved because my work schedule could not afford me to spend more time tracking someone down to either get the repair done or reimburse me the cost of our policy. My husband played his own game of phone tag only to be told that the Sales department would be issuing us a refund. NO apology!

I finally received the refund check on October 1. Mind you, I had to call them again to find out what was taking so long. The last Rep stated, "It was mailed 9/24. If you don't receive it in 2 weeks, call us back." By this time, nothing they could say would surprise me. Not even saying that the mail from Arizona would take 2 or more weeks to arrive in Texas. So, it took 50 DAYS from the time of that cancelled service call to get my money back!! If anyone is considering this company because of their reputation, I would strongly suggest choosing another company. The response time, the downright rude manner in which I was spoken to and treated (except by Ms.
San Antonio Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
