STAY AWAY!!! I've had multiple homes previously with AHS and had good experiences, not now!!!
Whether pool, electrical, or any other service, AHS constantly looks for ways not to cover, claiming "not caused by normal wear and tear."
Example: I paid for additional coverage for my salt water pool. The heater developed a leak and died. The first technician said it was due to rodent damage. Denied coverage.
Since the heater electrical was fine, and the heater is made of copper and aluminum, no way it was rodent damage. Called for a second opinion. Second technician said definitely not rodent repair, it was due to a leak that developed over time due to chemicals in the water. AHS said that is not normal wear and tear and since this was the second opinion, coverage denied and no further discussion.
The 2nd tech said that it was normal since the heater was 10 years old.
Called in 3rd tech myself, paid myself for diagnosis -- leak due to normal wear and tear.
AHS will repair -- cost: $3,500!!!
AHS went round and round with explanations, including the heater was not designed for salt water. Great, that is covered according to the contract. But, no, AHS states again, no normal wear and tear.
Similar issue with an electrical problem in the house. Not covered.
Got second opinion, and they agreed to address.
buyer BEWARE!!! If you've used AHS in the past, it's not the same.....
