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 have discovered how aggrieved homeowners can turn the tables on home warranty companies and beat them at their own game. Please share this with everyone you know. I’m an attorney and after having a problem with my home warranty company, American Home Shield, I...Read more

If you need to cancel your contract with them, my suggestion is you contact your bank and cancel the debit card (or however method they are charging you) - that will get their attention (even though it's inconvenient for you). I recently went through this same thing! ...Read more

My water heater went down hard a few days ago but hey, it’s covered under my home warranty, so I confidently got an appointment. “Yes sir, your water heater is covered”, they said with happiness. And I was happy, too. Good thing I have a home warranty, eh? That’s...Read more
