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.


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.

This is the worst home warranty every. Don't use them because it's a scam and they will never fix any appliance. The worst experience ever

Contractor arrived on time, if not early. Diagnosed the problem very quickly and within the hour, I was able to do laundry again. Very satisfied with the professional appearance and verbal explanation of the issue. Would hire again.

This company is a complete sham! I contacted the BBB and the Attorney Generals Office in LR, AR hoping to help others avoid being ripped off by these people. They do not honor their own contract. Once they have your money you're screwed. STAY AWAY!!
