They have done excellent work, come on time, and been very courteous. I pay the $75. 00 initial visit fee and the monthly fee and they have taken care of the rest on the 3 occasions that I have called. I really have had nothing but good experiences with HBW and would recommend them. So far, they have provided me with great peace of mind. My experience in submitting claims with 2 10 has been very good. I do it by phone and the reps are very pleasant. I had an air conditioner problem and they responded. The next day, the guy was there on time and diagnosed the problem. He came back the next day and put the part in. With the washer and dryer, the first people 2 10 contacted never showed up or called.
home owners warranty insurance quote
You are talking about home warranty plans from years ago, things have changed in the last few years. They do not, I repeat DO NOT replace things anymore. They will part it and piece it together over and over again and at $60 a visit from a tech it adds up. I even upgraded to a premium plan. My furnace is over 20 years old, has been involved in a major lawsuit for leaking CO, and my warranty company refuses to replace it. When I asked them how much it would be to pay out if I just want to buy a new furnace myself, because hey, don't want the family and I to die from Carbon Monoxide poisoning in the middle of the night, they tell me the payout is $60. This for a part that I can't find for less than $250. We have small children, it is mid winter and currently we have been without a furnace now for a week and counting, while the warranty company continues to order parts and repair when we have had 3 separate HVAC pros recommend replacement, not to mention one of their own techs refused to work on this unit. Home warranties are a complete waste of money, unless you don't mind being nickeled and dimed to death and living with appliances that are continually dying, and lets not forget dangerous!I have documented all of this and if my family and I dies from CO poisoning, I have made sure my surviving family will sue my home warranty company. We will not renew our warranty when it comes up, but will instead save the money toward a new furnace. The only time I would recommend a home warranty is when you buy a home and the seller pays for it, maybe you can have one expensive repair taken care of in that first year, but don't expect them to replace anything or be timely about it.
