SELECT HOME WARRANTY FAQs

Can I renew my Select Home Warranty Contract?

Yes, any customer can renew their select home warranty contract. You will be notified prior to the expiration of their contract, about an extension. You could opt for the same plan, or upgrade to a more comprehensive plan. All choose a plan based on your needs and requirements only.

Does the company cover older systems and appliances?

Yes, Select Home Warranty does cover older systems and appliances as long as they are in good working order at the time of purchasing the plan. The company does not conduct any home inspection before the contract is signed. The company also covers different models and makes many devices in one’s home. It is a general rule that customers must try to keep their systems and appliances in good working condition always.

Are customers eligible for any discounts?

Yes, customers are eligible for special multiple year coverage discounts. Patrons can reach out to the company’s customer care team to know more about these discounts. You can reach customer care through the phone or by sending a message online.

How much is a Select service fee?

As Select Home Warranty offers flexible pricing options with a choice of premium amount, the trade service visit fee can also vary. The trade service fee, also known as deductible ranges from $60-$75. This fee is to be paid when the service technician pays a visit.

Is homeowners insurance the same as a home warranty?

Not at all. Homeowners’ insurance is actual insurance, meant to cover people from the liabilities of the specified events such as fire damage, loss of property, etc. A home warranty is legally a service contract, not an insurance policy. But, it does ‘insure’, so to speak, against expensive repairs due to mechanical wearing out of home systems and appliances.

Can I Cancel my Select Home Warranty plan?

Yes, you can cancel your Select Home Warranty plan. If you would like to receive a full refund cancel the policy within 30 days of purchasing the plan. If you cancel your policy after 30 days you may be eligible for a refund with special permission from the company.

How long does it take for a system or appliance to get repaired?

Each device requires a different diagnosis based on its condition. Usually, the company repairs devices within 2 working days on weekdays, and four working days on weekends. Though these numbers may vary from case to case.

Is there a limit on the coverage? How many repairs can I have per year?

There is no limit on the number of service visits per year. However, there are upper limits on the repair/replacement allowance provided per system or appliance; an HVAC system has a maximum repair allowance of $2000. This means that, once the value of repairs availed on the HVAC system exceeds $2000, you can’t make any more claims. Till then, you can get unlimited repairs.

What is covered under Select's free roof leak coverage?

Select's free roof leak coverage includes leaks only over the occupied living area of single-family homes. It will not cover roof replacements nor patios, shingles, metallic roofs, tars, flat roofs, structural repairs, tiles, gravel, gutters, downspouts, skylights, solar heating systems and panels, flashing, satellite components, antennae, attic vents, chimney, etc

What is covered under warranty with respect to my air conditioning unit?

Select Home Warranty plans cover the main floor air conditioning unit of the home. The covered components include condenser fan motors, compressors, transformers, thermostats, capacitors, contactors, pressure switches, thermistors, cut in switches, condensers, start assist, defrost boards, relays, and blower motors.

Does Select Home Warranty cover pre-existing conditions?

Select Home Warranty won’t cover any systems and appliances with pre-existing conditions. If the problem is diagnosed to be pre-existing then you will have to pay for the repair out-of-pocket.

Can I choose my own service provider with Select Home Warranty?

Select Home Warranty schedules trade service visits and despatches technicians to your home. Unless they have approved you to choose your own service provider, they will not cover such repairs.

Which they said was fine, as long as I let them talk to the technician, which I did. The first technician couldn't find the problem and suggested that I replace the thermostat, which I did! Then a week later, the whole unit shut down. It was 30* outside all week, at the end of the third day with no notification from them, I called them as asked about my claim. The response was.."Oh we are so sorry, we can't provide a technician for you. I said, why didn't someone contact me? Oh, I'm sorry, SOMEONE was supposed to send you an email. I called my own tech again, and he had to replace the wires in the cutoff box and charged me $667. SHW told them to preform the repairs. Four days later, I get an email stating that they would only reimburse me for a $150! Their reasoning behind it was...I couldn't provide them with 3 years of maintenance service records! Well, I bought the house 2 years ago! Never once did they mention this when I signed up and gave them my money! They also said my unit needed to be replace, and then they would still only give me $150 toward that! Now mind you the techician didn't say the unit needed to be replaced! He did suggest some replacement parts for the future, but he never mentioned that unit should be replaced at all! Of course, I was sent to an make your customer happy dept. who said the same thing $150. I see how they make their money now. So I asked them, if they would have sent their own tech out and he said my united need to be replaced right then or in the future, what would they have done? Told the tech to leave since I didn't have the records? Or if i didn't have the money for a new unit right then? I suspect they would have paid the tech, had him to repair it or just leave me without heat during the coldest days of our winter! I also asked, how would I go about disputing their findings or go through their arbitrations? He replied he had no ideal! All he could do was tell me $150, and that is what the policy said. By the way, I just got a copy of the policy right after the phone call. they NEVER sent it to me as I am still waiting on the email, that said they didn't have a tech to send out to me. There is more to this story, however this is just the highlights. This company bears your seal of approval! ..View less

Perhaps if you live in a city or major metropolitan area, your experience may be different. From what I can tell, the policy cleverly excludes everything imaginable. It's so broadly worded in some areas and in others, excludes virtually anything that might break. We all know that the sales process makes it so we feel comfortable enough not to read through pages and pages of a contract. Furthermore, every time I have called about anything that actually was covered, they don't have any contractors that work on those systems so it is up to the home owner to coordinate, get authorization, pay out of pocket direct to the contractor, and then submit paperwork to Select for reimbursement - which is essentially part of what you are paying for but not getting. There is no way to know what you are getting prior to signing up but contractors all grumble they are not getting paid enough by home warranty companies and payments are delayed so only those contractors just starting out or who don't have enough customers because they have bad reputations or don't manage their business well, that are sub-contractors. The business model itself seems faulty and prone to dissatisfied customers due to either non-existent or sub-par performance making it appear to be a legal scam, something very common in the US with no consumer protections. Lastly, like all companies looking to squeeze every last cent of profit, customer service is done in the Philippines and they are trained to be polite but ineffective and are very difficult to understand. ..View less

We filed a claim on September 13, 2020 and to date we have been told to find our own Tech, pay for the full repair and submit for review and possible reimbursement. I suspect the reason they can't find techs is because they don't pay them promptly. This company makes a lot of promises they know are not true. Dishonesty is their standard of doing business.

I contacted Select Home Warranty company to get my A/C unit repaired. I first claim in 3 yrs with this outfit. They said someone would get back to me in 24-48 hrs to schedule a repair.

I contacted Select Home Warranty company to get my A/C unit repaired. I first claim in 3 yrs with this outfit. They said someone would get back to me in 24-48 hrs to schedule a repair. Already slept overnite in 85 degree heat with the unit broken and told Customer Service Dept that this wait is not acceptable and that I needed it repaired with in the next 24 hours. They said it was okay to use a local contractor to perform the repairs. I did contact someone and they came out that afternoon. The first repairman said my unit was 18 hrs old and should really be replaced and quoted me a price of $4995 to replace it. I declined. The second technician came out and fixed the problem. I submitted the invoice to the the Warranty Company for $320 and they denied me .. because the said I didn’t get preauthorization for the repair. I tried to get this problem resolved at higher levels .. but for the same song and dance from them. What a scammer this Company is ... they try to find any excuse not to pay for a covered repair... I guess I should have gotten a pre- authorization from the first repairman to replace the unit so they would have paid me $2000 reimbursement!! But I am sure they would have any excuse to get out of paying that one too. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY !!! ..View less

Nothing is covered by this warranty. There is a TON of unusual fine print. If it’s not visible, it’s not covered. Plumbing leak in the wall- forget it. The plumber can’t see through the wall so it’s not covered. Appliance repair can be determined to be not cost effective and they’ll just pay you what they feel is fair. Issue caused by sediment, hard water, etc - not covered. ..Read Full Review

Nothing is covered by this warranty. There is a TON of unusual fine print. If it’s not visible, it’s not covered. Plumbing leak in the wall- forget it. The plumber can’t see through the wall so it’s not covered. Appliance repair can be determined to be not cost effective and they’ll just pay you what they feel is fair. Issue caused by sediment, hard water, etc - not covered. Power surge - not covered. Not only does the problem have to be visible and out in the open, also has to be within the 4 walls of your house. Breaker box outside? You guessed it - not covered. Wouldn’t even cover replacement of an electrical outlet because the wires weren’t visible. Of course! Electrical wires don’t hang freely in a home that’s up to code. ..View less

Worst ever and I have had other companies in other states with no problems. Select told me to get my own repairman and then told me the part on my 7 year old fridge was not covered. $150repair charge and no reimbursement. Dishwasher same thing. Not covered. Terrible phone operators. All you hear is I apologize but that is not covered.
