I want to know why are you all charging me $60.88 a month when it says starting annual premium price is $249.00. At $60.88 a month for 12 months is $730.56 a year. This is Billy Jackson wife and our contract # is 206493362. Email address is Ljac5073205@aol.com., address 1941 FM 935 Lott, Texas 76656.

Response time to my issue was good and the necessary repairs were made correctly. The set co-pay is nice and I feel that I am getting good value and peace of mind for the price I paid for my home warranty.

I recently had inside plumbing problems, I contacted AHS and in a very shot while I was contacted by a local plumber and an appointment was set up. The problem was corrected in timely manner. I'm greatly pleased with AHS, and will recommend this company to any body.

I have had an AFC Home Club plan for 6 months now and have had to use their services 3 times already unfortunately. Once for my dishwasher, another for my AC and a third time for a bathtub/faucet issue. Every time I have put a request in they have been quick to respond, schedule a technician and handle the problem without much stress. I am so very glad I am covered with my home club plan and plan to renew year after year to keep my home protected.

I have read the reviews of this company and must say AFC is the best I have ever dealt with. I filed my claim request and within 2 hours the service had been set up. The man that came out was great and fixed my problem within a few minutes. Thanks AFC for being there when I needed you most.

American Home Shield Home Warranty review
Our hot water heater leaked and the contractor responded quickly and repaired the problem. He also recommended the Dry Wall Service that we would need to dry the walls surrounding the water heater. We were pleased with the time it took to restore everything to normal. The contractors were very polite, efficient and punctual. They did a marvelous job of cleaning up when they were finished.
