Fidelity is a shady company that sends out substandard companies for repairs. I have had to use their services a few times now, and the last time it ended up in a fiasco. I had a heater replaced through them in February 2016. I discontinued my warranty with Fidelity in July because the work that they do is unprofessional and has resulted in me needing to hire professionals outside of their network to resolve issues. The heater, brand new in February, is already faulty, November 2016. I needed to call out a repairman and the circuit board on the unit is faulty. I approached Fidelity with this issue and they refuse to assist. I called the company, Air Serv, that installed and they said that Fidelity needs to deal with it. Fidelity is an unethical company that is costing me yet another 500 dollars to repair a brand new heater unit. My suggestion is to veer away from Fidelity and consider other warranty companies.

BEWARE! I had been a very satisfied client recommending Fidelity to my real estate clients until a recent claim they denied for a furnace leaving my new homeowners out in the cold. The furnace was inspected prior to closing and although older, there was no carbon monoxide leak. Fidelity claimed it was "preexisting" and denied. DO NOT USE Fidelity. I am moving onto a company with integrity as their's is lacking along with any willingness to work with a long time customer.

The worst people ever to deal with! They are very fast to tell you what they do not cover and also very fast to tell you how much your deductible is in it needs to be paid up front! Service is absolutely lousy I've had to call the representatives back on two different occasions to tell them about my dissatisfaction with the contractors that they sent out to me. I had to use Fidelity when I purchased my home, I guarantee you I will not be using them again! This is a lousy company! If you want more frustration on top of your problems you have already go ahead and use them, if not I suggest you stay far far away from them because there's not very much help and they're not friendly people!

By far the worst cheating company I have ever have to deal with. Deny all my claims and found every little thing possible to deny any services. What a piece of shit company. I will be cancelling these scammers out asap. Don't ever use these crappie people. Pay a little more to get better respectful service from somewhere else.

At one time Fidelity National Home Warranty seemed to be a good company, but something has gone wrong. I had done business with them for seven years previously. I recently subscribed to them again and had a problem with my pool heater. They refused my claim because they said it was an existing condition. They know this is not a new house so everything here has some wear a tear to one degree or another. No matter what they refused any form of claim I presented. I would never do business with them again. I had the pool heater repaired by some one else and they did the exact work their inspector suggested. So they simply made up their mind they were not going to honor my claim. Do yourself a favor a pick a different company for your home warranty.
