"I have been with
since 2000. When I first used their service is was fine. But in the last few years is has been terrible. I don't put the blame on the" contractors they use, but
. I called them this morning because my air conditioner is leaking. I have water in my garage (could live with that), but the flooding of a close is not acceptable. I have no idea of that damage, but I do know I will have to at least replace the carpet and the pad, more that likely the base board too. My big concern will I have to replace the dry wall.. None of which AHS will pay for. Since its water damage, I don't know if my Home Owners will. Oh yes! according to AHS emergency service is service within 24 hours. Also, the sweet little thing that I spoke to told me to just shut the unit off. First of all I have no idea how to shut it off, and two live in Tucson, AZ, where for the next couple of days where the temps will be in the mid to upper 90's So pray for me that before they come to fix the problem my house doesn't' float away.

"Please avoid them at all cost!! That's my suggestion. I had a water leak somewhere in my upstairs Master Bathroom. I said somewhere because i didn't know where the water is" coming from. My kitchen ceiling came down from it and also wall, insulation, kitchen cabinet was damaged. That happened about a week ago. Finally i got a resolution from them yesterday saying this leak is not covered because this didn't happen from normal wear and tear. Now let me go back to very first day when that happened. One Guard sent one plumber and i guess he gave them some sort of estimate to fix it. I was told this guy is asking for too much money so we are contacting different contractor. Two days later i had an appointment with different plumber and finally he cancelled the appointment on them saying they can not do it. Then One Guard hired someone else to inspect this. By this time i was loosing valuable time. Unless the leak is taken care of i can't fix anything and the house was in the
for rental. In the mean time i hired some other guy to find the leak. Because as you might already know finding the leak is not covered. To find the leak my guy had to cut bathroom vanity and the wall behind it and he also had to break couple of angle brackets to bring the cabinet out. There was not relation between this broken
and the leak. Finally the third plumber came yesterday and based on three things mentioned below, he concluded this is not covered: 1. Angle
was broken. Somehow he linked this broken angle
with the leak which is completely wrong. 2. There was a metal clam around the copper pipe and someone hammered that clam inside the copper pipe. To me this is ridiculous. I lived in this house for 2 and half years and moved out two weeks back. Nothing was wrong them. May be that clam was there from the very beginning. But one thing for sure nobody hammered that in to the pipe. This is childish. 3. There are other people came before us who concluded the same thing. This is also ridiculous. The first plumber thought the leak was near the bath tub without even opening the cover. The second guy never came inside the house. Now One Guard is not going to cover it. My question to all of you if this is not normal wear and tear then what exactly is normal wear and tear? May be the house moved little bit forcing the clam came on the pipe hard. One thing is for sure there was no leak when i was living there for 2 and half years and no one hammered this clam to the pipe. Why someone would do that? This people are FRAUD!!!! Be aware. Pay little bit more and go with someone else. Thanks.

"We have had a contract with Allied for almost 4 years. The responsiveness and quality of vendors has declined significantly over the last 12 months. Last year a plumber came out 17" times for the same issue before running a camera down the line leaving our house. Each time we were charged a service fee. This isn't the only example. Unfortunately their vendor pool has shrunk leaving only 1 option for vendor in many cases. Also, It is VERY difficult to get in touch with someone if you do have an issue. Over the last 4 years we have required service for AC, plumbing, garage door, etc.

One of the

vendors removed my $250 smart thermostat (installed by a very reputable company), and stated that I "couldn't have that kind of thermostat" because I didn't have some kind of connection. Now, the company I purchased the smart thermostat from was very thorough in showing pictures, and I took pictures of the wires, etc. making certain that it would work with my furnace and air conditioner. He installed another thermostat which worked but which I was not able to operate via my iPhone. Not only did I
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
the $250 thermostat, I also had higher utility bills as a result. Yes, he got the furnace working, but I was extremely unhappy with his service. When I called
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
and relayed my concerns, they said they had no record of them sending anyone to my home, and they couldn't even tell me his name!
Another time, they sent out a plumber to fix my dishwasher/garbage disposal. While he was able to get the dishwasher going again, it broke down again a day or so after he left. He was not able to come for several weeks, which meant standing water in the dishwater became very smelly. The plumber did bring some of his cleaning products, which were helpful cleaning the standing water out of the dishwater and helped with the smell. However, he did not fix the garbage disposal. Finally, I just gave up on AHS and called a reputable plumper from Des Moines. They installed a new garbage disposal on a Sunday evening. It was expensive, but it was also done right.
I wish I would have just saved the money I spent on

and I would have a new furnace by now. I'm glad I tried them though, so I can tell you that

service was a nightmare for me. I would not recommend them.

sent United Air Temp to repair my air conditioner/ heat pump on August 4, 2014. Technician determined that the circuit breaker on the air handler needed to be replaced before he could troubleshoot the unit further. He did not have the needed breaker on his truck and needed to order the part. He stated that he would be back within 10 days to
install the breaker and finish the repair. I heard nothing further until after waiting 3 weeks I called to see if they obtained the part
and would be out to finish the job. They told me the part had not arrived from the manufacturer yet. I escalated the problem to
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
(AHS). AHS told me that they would investigate. The next day United Air Temp called and said that the
factory would be shipping the part to them in the next two days. A week later, United Air Temp called and said that the part was shipped and scheduled with the repair for September 3 (the soonest they could do it). My AC has now been out of service for over 30 days at this point.
The technician (a different technician that the first one) from United Air Temp arrived on September 3 to make the repair only to find that they had ordered the wrong part. He stated that he would have to order the right one. He said that it would take the same amount of time to get the part as the last one.
I called AHS to complain about the problem and they said that they would "investigate" the issue.
AHS was slow respond back to me and did very little to help resolve the problem.
My A/C unit was repaired on 9/17. I took 48 day (9 weeks) to fix my A/C. Keep in mind that this occurred during the hottest month of the year.
I will not be renewing my warranty with them and I do not recommend them to anyone.

The company was to come out and look at the pool equipment to see if it was something they could repair. Instead, they just repaired a filter but did not correct the original problem. They came out several times and each time something else went wrong or was not repaired. When it was brought to the attention of the manager all he kept saying was ok. On one occasion, due to the tech not tightening some bolts and not correctly fixing an issue, we were unable to run our pool filter during a freeze. No one would come out to fix it until the next business day which resulted in the salt generator freezing and cracking. The company would not own up nor take responsiblty for their mistake. We did request a refund of the cost of the repair and they only covered 160.00 of a repair/replacement of over 500.00. One tech made the comment that they have to come from Dallas. Well the company in Dallas sure did not have an issue with taking our money from Fort Worth. If they do not want to come to Fort Worth from Dallas then why accept the contract? Very disappointed in this company. Very poor communication skills and customer service. We will not renew with them and I am sharing my story with my neighbors, friends and family.

When I purchased my house, this was the company that I was provided by the Seller for my Home Warranty. They are great to deal with and have paid for a new furnace, A/C unit and garage door opener. I was so pleased with their services, I decided to renew the warranty (which I paid for myself).

This review is a general message about
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
(AHS), home warranty company -- home-based in
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
, Iowa. They've sent repairmen to our home on numerous occasions to repair broken appliances, included in their contract. The latest repair work was on our upstairs central air conditioning unit. we've had an ongoing battle with
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
for the past ten years. We bought their warranty contract when we purchased our home for the reason most people purchase such a contract, to ensure that repairs can be done without much cost to the owner. That said, the cost of contract renewal with this company has
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
exponentially in the past ten years, as well as the cost of a service call for a repairman to come to the house. The latter used to be $45 in 2005; now it is $75. Our air conditioning units keep breaking down, and the only reason we have continued to renew our yearly contract with AHS is because of their guaranty to "repair or replace" the particular appliance. We have now thrown nearly $7,000 at this company, and it has become clear that they have no intention of replacing our central air units. The parts break down left and right -- we've had a new condenser, a new evaporator coil, new valves, new wires -- the units are now holding together with spit and glue. But,
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
still refuses to replace them. I finally realized after speaking with someone from Customer Relations this evening that they have absolutely no intention of ever replacing our upstairs unit (the one that has given us the most trouble) or the downstairs one. The woman with whom I spoke said that as long as they can get parts, they will keep repairing. This is not cost-effective for us or for them. They've thrown so much money at our A/C units over the years, they could very well have replaced them! We, too, keep paying the yearly fee, the service fees, and have just had to spend $480 for refrigerant that leaked out. (AHS only pays $10 per pound for this.) The Customer Relations woman actually said, in essence, that they HAVE indeed replaced the unit. The condenser and evaporator coil are the main components, so I've been told. They, she figures, are tantamount to a "replacement." Meanwhile, the units are totally rusted out and will keep on deteriorating. Yes, they're both working now, but for how long? They are 15 years old, but, as I was told, they don't replace just because a unit is "old." I understand that, but there comes a time when replacing parts to an old, inefficient unit is no longer cost-effective, not to the warranty company or to the customer. It's a very poor way to do business....................................but that's their position -- the customer keeps paying, and they keep putting on bandaids. Additionally, AHS sends only repairmen from "mom and pop" companies. None of the big repair services will do business with them because they don't pay enough. The last guy who was here was actually talking to his boss on the phone -- we could hear him up in our attic -- because he had no idea what he was doing. BOTTOM LINE: DO NOT -- DO NOT -- DO NOT EVER DO BUSINESS WITH
Gary Home Warranty Companies Provider Name Locked
!! They're a shoddy company who is only out to get your money. Better to save your money and pay for repairs on your own than to keep throwing good money after bad at

Joined HSC on 7/30/14, in the summer when I am not using my furnace. After Labor Day is typically when I test and turn on my heating system every year, change the filter, and make sure it is ready to go for the Winter. On 9/8/14 when I attempted to start my furnace up, it did not turn on. HSC automatically ASSUMES that my furnace was not in working condition as of the contract start date and they cancelled my contract without ever having even seen the furnace. If they are going to make their own assumptions on whether something is working or not then they should require pre coverage inspections. They make up their own rules as they go along. This company is a scam and all consumers should be made aware of their unscrupulous practices. If I had requested service in the dead of winter, I would be left freezing in a home with no heat. Because I requested the service in the Fall, HSC ASSUMES that the furnace was not working as of last winter. When in fact, they have no way of knowing that since they couldnt be bothered sending a heating technician to look at it or even diagnose it. Warning to all consumers; DO NOT EXPECT HSC TO BE THERE FOR YOU IF YOU EVER NEED THEM. GO WITH A WARRANTY COMPANY THAT WILL ACTUALLY HONOR THEIR OWN CONTRACT.

I bought a 20 year old home last year. The buyer was to pay for a home warranty plan, and the closing company had lined up some other home warranty company. I looked at reviews on them, and they were terrible. So, I found these guys with an A rating on Angieslist and switched it to them. It was a tiny bit more expensive, but home warranty programs generally have a bad reputation and the positive reviews on these guys made it seem worth it.
Basically, you call the number and file a claim over the phone, they give you a list of people in your area that they can pay directly (although you can use whomever you want as long as you get the dollar amount approved first and are willing to be reimbursed after paying the repair guy). Super easy.
They fixed my furnace twice, which was a couple hundred bucks each time. And, they replaced my dishwasher motor and control panel, which worked out to $450. They have limits on what they will pay to fix, and if they won't fix it, they'll give you money towards a new appliance. I believe it would have only been $100-200 towards a new dishwasher, so it would have been cheaper for them to just refuse to repair mine. But, the person on the phone talked to a manager, and they paid the full amount to have it fixed which they contractually were not required to do.
These guys are awesome. If you're buying a home warranty or buying a house and the seller is paying, go with these guys. Very happy.
