Different Coverage Aspects You Should Know About

Systems and appliances under single-family homes, individual condominium units, townhouses, modular homes, and multi-family homes will be covered under the company’s coverage. Devices will be treated only if they are damaged due to normal wear and tear. The company will not cover devices that have been damaged due to any acts of nature.

Customers should immediately contact the company if their devices are malfunctioning, and must switch off the devices promptly to avoid further damage. Only those systems and appliances mentioned in one’s contract will be covered by the company.

Customers should note if they file a deductible, and later on, cancel the appointment, they will still be charged. If consumers fail to pay the deductible amount, they will not be able to file for a claim in the future and will be deferred until all dues are fully paid.

Technicians must have complete access to the devices while repairing or replacing them. It is the responsibility of the customer to grant complete permission for the technicians to access devices.

Select Home Warranty is a bad joke. I have had two claims, microwave and just recently dishwasher. The microwave was not repairable and the offered me less then 10% of cost for a new one. The dishwasher can be repaired at a reasonable cost to replace the board and they will only pay $200.00 for a $342.00 claim. I will definitely not not sign up with them again

I have submitted two claims recently, one to have a broken pool heater fixed and one to have my A/C unit fixed. Both experiences with the claims have been very disappointing. The claim for a pool heater repair was denied because they said there was corrosion. It is an outside in-ground pool heater. It has pool water running through the heater and rust and corrosion are going be visible in the heater. I paid extra for coverage of my pool equipment, but so far it looks like nothing for the pool equipment will ever be covered to be fixed if they can simply say denied because of rust and corrosion. The second claim I filed for my A/C repair is even more frustrating as it is still ongoing and yet to be resolved. I filed this claim over three weeks ago and they still haven't provided me with any resolution or much info at all. They do not communicate or send any emails unless I call and ask what the status is. The first technician that came did not figure out what was wrong but nothing was communicated back to me or to Select Home Warranty. It took several more days for Select Home Warranty to get another technician only after calling and following up a second time on if anybody was coming to look at my A/C. Once the technician came, he submitted the request of what needed to be repaired, but only after about 5 days of not hearing back and me following up again did they say it would now be expedited. Then 2 days later, they finally respond with an email saying they need pictures of the A/C unit and maintenance records. I send those the next day to them, but hear nothing back until I call and follow up again after another 3 day of no action by them. Now they are still reviewing the claim and it has been over 11 days since then technician reported the repairs needed to them for approval. I live in a desert where it has been over 100 degrees and even over 110 degrees during this whole process and without the A/C unit working it has been miserable and so frustrating that Select Home Warranty has been so slow and hard to work with. I would not recommend this home warranty company to anyone. Even the technicians that have come have told me they don't like working with Select Home Warranty and will even not answer their calls as they are so hard to work with and usually don't cover anything anyway. So disappointing and frustrating to spend so much money on a home warranty and it just seems like I've been scammed of buying something and not getting anything for it. ..View less

I am to busy to call plumbers and i dont know who is in or out of their network. Seems like something they should be doing, i asked them to do that. they refused, i waited a little bit and tried to submit a new claim online, website didnt work. Another claim they sent someone out and we paid $45 for the visit. the company couldnt fix it. So SHW sent another company, we paid another $45 for their visit, they ended up resolving our issue. When we inquired about why we had to pay $45 twice, their response was "you should have called us. you shouldnt have to pay twice." seems like THEY should of told us or company ahead of time, they blamed us for not knowing. both SHW and company refused to refund us for the second $45. Our latest claim a technician came and looked at our stove, sent in a request to SHW to get replacement parts. its been over a week of it being 'escalated' at SHW and still no word. Will never use them again. ..View less

I won't do business with this company again. They did not provide me all of the info I need and it turned out things that most home warranty company would cover, Select Home Warranty won't cover without buying the add-ons that the salesperson would tell you. If the salespeople tell you about the add-on, then their lower price won't be as low anymore.

This company's service is a joke. It took 5 days for a technician to arrive. He had to be told to wear a mask as both of us are in our 80's with pre-existing issues. He verified my diagnosis that we had a door switch failure. He took photos and data from the data plate. After 2 days we called to ask when the return with the part could be expected. The firm Select Home Warranty hired said they had not received the authorization to purchase the switch. I called Select Home Warranty who stated their evaluation department hadn't determined the issue. I then called Whirlpool and discovered the switch in question cost $24...I notified Select Home Warranty ass to the availability, cost and location of the part. After several failed attempts to get the switch ordered I received a message stating my dryer door was not covered. I called back and told them the diagnostic clearly stated it was the $24 switch and not the dryer door. It didn't matter they refused to read the diagnostic from the firm they hired that clearly stated the problem. To make a very long involved story short, I ordered the part at my own expense and installed it as well. We then cancelled our prepaid three year contract. Even that has been an issue. Despite we already paid the service fee for incomplete repair they are charging us a fee to cancel our contract. Despite having two years (2/3's) remaining, they are "prorating" the time remaining and only returning less than 1/3rd of our balance paid. We recommend anyone dealing with Select Home Warranty be careful. Even if my dryer had a door failure, the entire unit should have been covered by our Platinum Plan. It was not worth the bad experience to continue to fight with them...... ..View less

BUYER BEWARE! I bought this warranty in good faith from the sales rep with the promise that all things I needed covered were fully covered with this warranty. And with a co-pay of $45 per claim. They only cover certain amounts. They are truly just a discount plan that discounts the cost of repairs when they go over a low $ amount. You are on the hook for the remainder. When I spoke to customer service they said that was the cap and they have caps on all things based on the life of the plan so they basically don't lose money with what I have paid. My issue was my well pump system, with a repair cost of $975. They will only pay $400. When you read the contract carefully (I didn't because I trusted my sales rep and read the coverage section which clearly showed all things that were pertinent to me were covered. No mention of caps until you scroll down several pages. It says "For heating or cooling equipment appliances, plumbing and electrical(non-heating or cooling) the repair/replacement coverage is selected allowance is as an option $500. For the limit additional coverage options the repair/replacement allowance is $400." Technically a well is plumbing which means per the contract it should be capped at $500. They refuse to honor this and I cannot afford to pay to have it fixed thru them. I already gave them $1560 for a 3-year plan. When I told him the rep mispresented the plan to me and I wanted all my money back he said they cannot do that. They will pro-rate, take out the costs of anything they have paid (for the guy to come out and diagnose the problem) and then take a $75 fee. This is a BAD plan BUYER BEWARE!!! ..View less
