Select Home Warranty Review

Select Home Warranty makes it easier for homeowners to get coverage for their appliances and systems by providing a variety of home warranty options. Maintaining a home, especially an old one, can be very frustrating and financially draining. Select Home Warranty's help lines are available 24/7, you'll have access to thousands of affiliated local contractors who provide service across the country.

Coverage 

Select Home Warranty offers three major plans: Bronze, Gold and Platinum care. Bronze is geared toward covering home appliances, Gold covers home systems. Platinum offers both Bronze and Gold coverage and a lot, lot more.

A good thing about Select Home Warranty is they actually require you to sign your contract before they start charging you. You would think this was par for the course, but we found a lot of providers don't even give you the contract unless you ask. Of course we recommend you methodically go through your contract before you decide on purchasing. And that doesn't just apply to Select Home Warranty it goes for any home warranty provider. Home warranties often have specific stipulations, like requiring you to provide inspection records of certain systems and appliances.

Fine Print

You may cancel Select Home Warranty's contract within thirty (30) days from the order date, as set forth on the schedule page accompanying the agreement. In the event you cancel within the thirty (30) day period, you shall be entitled to a full refund if and only if, no service has been provided under the contract. After the thirtieth day, you may receive a pro-rated refund if and only if, no service has been provided under the contract, unless otherwise agreed by the company. If services have been rendered, a $75 cancellation fee will be charged and any service costs incurred by Select Home Warranty. 

Select Home Warranty has a $500 cap on AC repairs during the first three months. After that it goes up to $2000. 

In the event Select Home Warranty denies your claim they will send you their detailed reason in writing. If you wish to obtain a second opinion to challenge their decision you will have to pay for it yourself.

Final Thoughts

Select Home Warranty covers a wide range of home systems and appliances in their Platinum plan, but still comes up short compared to other similarly priced plans from other home warranty providers. Select Home Warranty’s Bronze and Gold plans do not offer enough coverage, this makes the Platinum the only logical choice for homeowners. Some of the other items covered in their optional plans like stand alone freezers or central vacuum systems are commonly offered in other company's basic packages, which makes getting them as an optional feature a more expensive option altogether.

Our refrigerator stopped working and we called Select Home Warranty. Their technician came over and in about 15 min told us that the problem is the compressor. Than we found out that since it's a part of the sealed system our home warranty doesn't cover it. OK, we called Sears to repair it. We paid $164.30 for their diagnostic and after they spend more than an hour they found that the problem is not a compressor but main circuit board which should be covered by our home warranty. And cost is $755.10 to repair it. After numerous phone calls and emails to Select Home Warranty they offered $125 for replacement or repair (our choice). Which is ridiculous especially when we already spent more... Read More

After many days and many hours (four today) and submitted dispute with Visa I received a call from Dave, Manager Billing. He politely listened to my experience of the days and hours of issues I experienced. I told him I didn't want to hear "I'm sorry anymore, I want resolve". He did resolve the issues by authorizing a refund. He said he was going to investigate the 8 days and "hours" of the difficulties in trying to resolve the refrigerator repair. I will take him at his word he will follow through and hope they review business practices. I've received one refund promptly and just awaiting the other. As a result I have increased the 1 start to 3 stars for issue resolved.

Had a terrible experience with them. Contacted them about a worn air conditioning fan motor that froze up and was asked to provide maintenance records. When I explained I had just purchased the house a few months earlier was informed that they would only cover a small part of the replacement cost. This was after waiting 2 days for someone to check it out and they could not replace it until it was authorized which would take a few more days and this was in the hottest time of the year. I cancelled immediately and paid to have the replacement done. Was told I would get a refund on the policy which never showed up. Stay away from these folks.

Some of the phone wait times were a little much for me when my clothing dyrer broken down. They did fix the unit fairly quickly once a rep came down

A good experience with my Home warranty. All that was needed by my washing machine was a relay replacement. The work horse was back on the job within a few hours.

I have good experience with the home service with problems getting resolved in 1-5 hours. I am now moving out and the good part is that the home warranty will be transferred to the new owner for the remaining period of the contract. Kevin

My colleague at the work place recommended this Home Service Plan after she heard about my plight. Believe me, there is nothing better than the peace of mind.

I blamed my stars and cursed my nagging wife for all the equipment breakdowns in the house. The time and money spent for the repairs was simply out of hand. Thank you select for my happy controlled repair costs.

For a single working lady, the Service plan is a boon in disguise. I do not know how I would have managed without it.
