In the two claims that were made, the first was a leaking bathtub that was causing water damage to the bottom floor ceiling of my home. The plumber that was sent out to the house incorrectly diagnosed the cause of the leak, I ended up purchasing the necessary equipment to fix the tub and performing the maintenance myself, a wasted 100 dollar deductible. The second time was another plumbing issue, this time the plumbing company that responded did a great job with my kitchen sink. However, the largest and most egregious of instances that occurred during my time with this warranty company was when they took $45.95 from my account and refused to refund me my money when I told them I no...

I purchased a coverage through HWA when I bought my home last fall. On July 2, 2017 my air conditioner stopped working. HWA has "approved" this expense, according to numerous telephone conversations; however, it has now been 22 days and my family is still without air conditioning during the middle of summer. I have two small children at home with special needs, making our home extremely uncomfortable for my entire family. We are at our wits end, and feel like we are being held hostage by this terrible company. BEWARE!!!! They are committing fraud by taking people's money and provide NOTHING but stress in return.
This is a follow up to my post last week. So, HWA denied my A/C compressor claim after 12 days of "reviewing the issue" HWA attempted to force a "buy out" offering $680 for a $2400 repair. I called an attorney and sent a note to the states attorney's office to start the formal process in a complaint. The next day, after 7 emails and 6 long waits on hold, in 12 days, to the HWA customer assistance line, an HWA employee calls. The guy states that HWA made a mistake and can have a service technician out to the house to repair the a/c unit in 2 hours. I reply that HWA denied the claim yesterday and that I authorized the $2400 repair out of my own pocket. The guy tells me that I 'MUST... Read More
This company is a cheat. Three years with them and they have denied all my claims. After that I cancelled. After multiple phone calls from them and countless notices in the mail asking me to renew, I called them back. I explained my experience and hesitation to return. They then convinced me to renew and assured me I'd be taken care of. I even upgraded. Two days later my A/C broke. They rejected my claim again saying it was pre-existing and I had a lapse in coverage. My kids and I are sitting here in the middle of summer sweating. Seven claims in all. They always find a technicality to not replace anything. The fact that I have given them my money for 3 years had no bearing and they... Read More
I will follow this up but, the short version, Home Warranty of America is horrible. Our Keller Williams realtor suggested we buy the Home Warranty from HWA. Keller Williams gets a kick back from HWA/Direct Energy. A/C went out on 07.03.2017. Nine 9 days later, HWA tells me they wont fix the a/c unit because it has R22 Freon. The repair is $2400.00 HWA is forcing a buy out for $600 on a covered item. They basically are refusing to repair the A/C unit that I paid to be insured. This is a 2013 A/C unit.... HWA purposely dragged out this event to force me to repair the unit myself... 9 days without A/C is the south and 10 days in a Hotel with my family is enough. I just hired a contractor... Read More
Buyer Beware. This is a company that will not honor what they offer. They give you the run around and are dishonest. Customer service is the worst and will not allow you to speak to a manager. the kicker here is that when you do what you suppose to which is do maintenance on your Air conditioner unit yearly for preventative this way your unit is running right and you limit the need to have repairs. Then you have a warranty company try to use that against you when you. Telling you that you have an unauthorized repair when you never repaired anything. typical case of trying to get out of what you paid them for. Please enter at your own risk
Purchased HWA warranty with new home through title company. Refrigerator starting having multiple problems and when we called HWA said they had no record of contract. After contacting realtor they straightened it out a few days later. Submitted claim for refrigerator and assigned service contactor came out 3 times and replaced all electronics controllers and blower (took 30 days) and the refrigerator was even worse. The contractor stated it was unrepairable and needed to be replace. Contacted HWA and they said they would review the case after the contractor reported it. Called back next day and they said they needed a second opinion and assigned another contractor. No one has called... Read More
Do not join this company for a home warranty! I moved into my home on May 9th tyred to run dish washer finally found out who we had are home warranty through. We had their recommended appliance specialist come and evaluate that yes dishwaasher not working and took them all of MAYBE 5 minutes. It is now May 25th and still no solution from Home Warrenty of America.
My AC stopped working on Sunday afternoon. I called in the claim and after giving all the info they assigned a local vendor to call me. I was called Monday at 8:00 am, a service tech arrived at 4:30, replaced the capacitor and the fan motor and ac was back on and working at 6:00 pm. Could not have asked for better service. Can't understand all the negative reviews I see. I have been insured with HWA for two years and will renew again
That worse warranty company, They are not about the customer, all they do is take your money, and the issue is never resolve, we have AC issues and in a matter of days we have spent close to 500, abd our AC is still leaking, I just completed a complaint to the BBB, they need to conduct a investigation, I'm tired if companies taking advantage of people, please stay away from them!!!!!!
