This time was a clogged impeller on the pool system...the technician fixed that problem, and was recalled when a leak was noticed in the same area of the impeller. The technician ended up replacing motor bearings, "0" rings, and other parts to put the pump system back to "new" operating condition. Not only was the initial problem fixed, but other problems the technician found were corrected. We have been with AHS for almost 30 years, and I can't remember a service call that didn't get corrected in a timely manner. As I told Sears when I bought a new appliance...."I don't need your extended warranty....I have AHS"

We had our first opportunity to use our AHS Warranty service recently. Our ice maker in our refrigerator stopped working. At the same time our washing machine was making a terrible nose in the fast spin cycle. So we had AHS look at both. The service provider sent to us was very timely and communicative. He was able to fix the ice maker on the spot. The repairs to the washing machine had to be reviewed by AHS and they decided it was more economical to just give us a replacement. We chose to buy one ourselves and took the cash in lieu quoted to us. We were very please with AHS and appliance repair provider they engaged for our service!

I had a problem with my microwave oven(Built in not free standing) and was first told not covered. When I called back to complain, they did send me a check which I thought was satisfactory (microwave was 13 years old but in great shape). I truly think they thought it was a free standing model. All in all, a little bit aggravating but they came thru. Gerald G. Glenview,Il

Called AFC to get a quote, since my former warranty company, First American raised their rate a couple hundred dollars and their visit is higher now, too. Received excellent service from Adrian and based on the rates and coverage I signed up with AFC.

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.

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.
