I've been with AHS for 13 years, and never experienced the lack of customer service that I'm currently experiencing. Waited on hold for over an hour to be told that the email informing me that my service is complete only really meant that the tech was there. On Sunday got a response from Facebook stating that due to a high volume of customer complaints, someone would get back to me in 4-5 days. I'm a couple days shy of being without a clothes dryer for a month. Also, my premiums and per visit copay continue to go up, despite using the warranty less than 10 times in 13 years. SO DISAPPOINTED. Couldn't figure out how to give 0 stars.
We called AHS regarding the problem with our refrigerator and received a phone number for the service company. An appointment was made right away with the company. Very professional and on time. We were very satisfied.
We have been with AHS with over10 yrs and have never had a negative experience with anyone associated with them. From the schedulers to the contractors, everyone has done more than expected.
I have used AHS twice in the past 3 months. 1 for A/C and 1 for a plumbing issue. Both service people they sent were very nice and knowledgeable. The plumbing was fixed (minor issue with the tank guts) and the A/C needed $1500.00 of uncovered repairs. I opted to take a cash in lieu of repairs for $350.00 (which I was not expecting) since the A/C was 18 yrs old and I needed a more efficient one anyway. I am happy with what AHS has to offer, and they seem to fair and customer service has been polite. I would highly recommend them to homeowners and /or landlords.
I have enjoyed prompt and courteous service from vendors sent to me from AHS. I am pleased with my coverage. An auto pay issue received attention in a timely manner and I'm hopeful the problem has been resolved.
When my water heater broke on a Friday afternoon, I used the AHS process to find a contractor to repair/replace it. The contractor I was notified to contact was Bay Mechanical, Inc. Their repair person came on the next business day, Monday. I called Bay to find out what was necessary to proceed and they told me they could not replace my 80 gallon tank, that I would have to accept a 50 gallon tank or purchase an upgrade to a commercial tank. Then they sent an email showing a quote for over $900 to "bring up to code" my plumbing so they could install the 50 gallon tank. The tank itself was apparently covered by AHS but I'd have to pay the entire $900+ out of pocket. I asked a local... Read More
i believe this was probably the worse customer service experience that i have had with any company
NO STARS So far my experience has been VERY POOR, AWFUL, HORRIBLE! It has been 5 weeks and my water heater still has not been replaced. 3 weeks passed before I was told that my water heater was under manufacturers warranty and that I was suppose to handle it and let them know when I had the new one. I was never told that it was under warranty or had to get it. I went through the roof and after sitting on hold for over an hour every time I call 2 more weeks have passed and they told me the contractor would let me know when they could fit me in. SATURDAY 7AM. I'm a realtor and have worked with many warranty companies. This is the worst so far. I met a repair man sent from another... Read More
They were quick to get me an appointment. That part went smoothly. However, I have a Carrier Infinity AC System. I understand that it is pricy to fix and most companies do not carry the part. So it took quite some time to get the AC fixed. That was not the issue. I had a two stage system. They replaced the part with a one stage system. I did not know they were doing that. It decreased the efficiency of my expensive AC System. I wish they would have given me the two options and allowed me to pay the difference to keep my better system. On top of that, the new, sub-par part required reworking some duct work which was entirely my financial responsibility. Bottom line it's... Read More
You need lots of patience with these people. I have three homes insured by them for the last two years. The phone wait times are ridiculous. I have waited 39 minutes and then the call just drops. But if you are going to renew they have someone on the line within 10 minutes. Ordering parts is another nightmare. Nothing seems to be urgent including AC problems. In one of my homes I waited two months for them to complete a plumbing problem. I made the mistake of paying for the entire year so I'm now stuck with them until the policy term is up. Looking for a new company. I'm also in total shock the scored so high.
