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!

So this is for our first experience with a claim. First claim ever with any home warranty. We are new to the idea of home warranties and have been paying our monthly bills and now our bathroom had a leak and a big puddle. We requested a plumber on the phone and a girl took all of our information and very confidently said she'll call us back soon. We missed a call and got a message from her telling us a plumber was set to our request. Another girl called this time from the plumbing company and we scheudled an appointment for later in the day when they had availability. The plumber came and had to take apart our toilet and change the flange and ring and put all back together. He tested the toilet and made sure it was ok before he left. There hasn't been a leak since and looks like it is good. We are happy with our claim result.

A man came out from a heating and cooling ocmpany we have used before and replaced the blower motor and capacitor and all we paid was our deductible instead of the $700 it costs, and in half an hour all was over. The system works fine and the man said it was in great condition and claim was over before I knew it.

I am a proud member of the home service club for some time now and i am so happy. I have always received the best customer service and with my busy sech they always handle it all for me in a timely manor. Only thing for me to do is to be home to let techs in and the rest is done for me. With my old house that I grew up in and all the problems that happen due to age I am so happy that the home service club covers me and they always renew me. My last home warranty got rid of me the moment I expired and I only had two problems in a year (one they didnt cover because it was deemed pre existing). This company didnt do that to me and I was very greatful. After these couple of years with them and them almost replacing all of my appliances I can say I will stay with them forever. Even when not covered cause my sons basketball knocked my garage door opener off and broke it to pieces they got me a company that gave me the discount that they would give the home service club OOOO and the garage door company moved me up and gave me a sooner appointment time because I was a member of the home service club and we all know we need a garage door working. Thanks to everyone at the home service club.

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.

We have been with The Home Service Club for a little over two years now and have had a couple of minuscule claims. All went well as they should have and we never had any complaints and never left any reviews. We, just recently, finished our first what I would call major claim. Heating stopped working and the house got cold quickly. It was one of those things which make you instantly nervous. But that was short lived. We were given a technician who came to the house right way and was exceptionally polite and confident in his abilities. A total of less than a couple of hours and a few trips back and forth to his truck, he replaced a few parts and everything was running again. He showed my husband what the problems were and left his business card for future maintenance work which we will be happy to hire him for. It has been a few days now and not a worry so far. We were notified by The Home Service Club to learn that the major repair was authorized and we were only responsible for our deductible just like on the previous smaller claims. We are both pleased with this as we were with the previous ones and it deserves taking a few minutes to write this feedback. You can call us satisfied customers.
