For example, one home warranty company might warrant a home’s air conditioning system in the basic policy, while another charges extra for that coverage. The second factor is the cost of different upgrades. For example, depending on the policy and desired coverage, the consumer may need to pay extra to cover swimming pool equipment or additional roof coverage. The third factor is the cost of the service calls, which might range anywhere from $35 to $75. After paying for the policy, the consumer pays a service charge when calling out a repair person from the company to investigate a problem. There is typically no charge for replacing or repairing the broken item. Home insurance is usually required by your mortgage lender and protects the structure of your home against risks such as damage from severe weather and theft, secondary damages resulting from some system and appliance failures, as well as protecting you personally from liability in the event that someone is accidentally injured on your property. Each time you make a claim on your home insurance you pay a deductible cost, which is commonly $500 or $1,000. Home warranties protect many of the home systems and appliances that you rely on daily. When these systems and appliances inevitably fail over time due to normal wear and tear, a home warranty will pay to repair or replace them. You will pay a service fee each time you request service, which ranges from $50 $100. I called, but that vendor did not work on residential properties, so I had to go back to Select for the name of another vendor. It took 3 calls to finally speak to someone and was told someone would call me back to set up an appointment to meet me at my house. I contacted Select on 01/05/15 and informed them that I had not heard back from their vendor. They responded on 01/06/15 that my claim was approved. I informed them that I didn't even know what was wrong with the pump as the vendor never contacted me or met me at my property. I was told they would look into it and then told the vendor said my 2 year old pump needed replacing and I needed to contact the vendor.

Always prompt service; sometimes it takes a day or two but it is understandable given the time of year we live in a resort type area.
