Pissed Consumer Interviews ?

By FAR the absolute WORST company I have EVER dealt with. ALWAYS have an hour or MORE wait on hold to speak to ANYONE. I purchased a AHS warranty on the advise of my real estate agent when I purchased my home in Florida. THAT was my first mistake !! I was in the home about 2 months when I realized my heat pump was not blowing cool air causing the unit to run 24/7 resulting in a massive power bill. AHS sent Total Air Care ( another loser of a company) to fix it. $75 thank you very much. I the left in my RV for a 6 month trip around the U.S. Returned in Sept. and my unit was not blowing cool air AGAIN !!! $350 power bill that should have been no more than $125.! Total Air care ( AGAIN !! ) they fixed it again, for about 10 days and it again went on the fritz !! ANOTHER $350 power bill. Total Air came back AGAIN !! Fixed it again !! for another 2 weeks. Then in November we had a cold weekend. GUESS WHAT, NO HEAT !! Spent the entire weekend with the temp in my home around 50*. Can't get a hold of Total Air they or AHS do not answer the phone on weekends. I am telling AHS it is time to replace this unit. NO CHANCE they point the finger at Total Air, Total Air points the finger at AHS. NOW I have to go to small claims court to get some satisfaction. Do yourselves a BIG favor, when someone suggests a AHS warranty, RUN AWAY
We have been a client for over 15 years. At first AHS would fix the occasional thing that broke. Then the last 5 years, would not honor any claim (we've only had like 3 during that time). We were going to cancel and an administrator got one of them taken care of, but played the same games with us this week on a leaking air conditioner and bad thermostat. Took our money as usual and did nothing. Said the technician didn't even put the thermostat in the report, so can't make them go back and fix it. Lodged a complaint against the vendor and the AHS CSR laughed and said, yep, plenty more complaints against those guys. Cancelled our service after 15 years, and they sent a $30 cancellation fee.
I signed up for AHS about two months ago. They denied my claim because they said the AC unit had been having problems prior to me signing up with them. Yes back four months ago or so someone came out and put more Freon in that unit but said that it was good to go. When...

Most people buy the policy and then wait 31 days to file the claim, acting like it just happened on the day the day they filed the claim.

Home warranty customers buy these policies because they KNOW there are problems with the appliances. Freon leaking from the ac system is an ongoing, expensive problem that is ...

I have been able to get service with them, and they do answer the call right away. They claim now that they are taking the service charge upfront. But here is the problem nowhere is it stated in the contract that is provided to me from them that I have to pay them the...

I have been a member for 3 years, with numerous customer service problems along the way this last time took the cake. It took a month and four different visits to fix a dishwasher in a rental unit. First they ordered the wrong part, then broken parts came in , then...

Sigh. The reason this happens is not that the parts were so hard to find. They’re not. The problem is that the appliance repairman has to keep AHS’s costs so low that they hav...

If it was possible to give this company less than 1 star rating I would. Perhaps the WORST experience I have ever had dealing with any company in my life!!!! On June 6th, after detecting a water leak on in my crawl space at 8:00pm on a Saturday night, I turned off my...

No one speaks clear English. I requested a supervisor. She speaks to me for less than a minute and puts me on hold. No one could clearly answer any questions with integrity. All I get that makes any sense is "PLEASE STAY ON THE LINE...YOUR CALL IS IMPORTANT TO US"!...

Go ahead and hire someone to install a new water heater. Forget the home warranty.
