I am looking to contract with a company for home warranty. I want them to service appliances (refrigerator, oven, microwave etc.) air conditioning, heating. Can anybody suggest a company?

There is an old thread on this subject that stopped in 2010. Hopefully, I can get more up to date information.

I've been happy with Old Republic. Used them many times over the last 3 years with no hassles. Only issue I find is that they sometimes cannot get contractors our the same day but if it's serious enough they let you call anyone and they reimburse the costs minus deductible.

ORHP (Old Republic) raised their price to me dramatically. I'm looking for a replacement.

Was that from your first year to your second? I know that ORHP discounts the rate that first year when the policy is ordered by real estate agents. (I don't know whether they do so if you order it yourself initially.) We were able to continue to get the discounted rate for the second year by having our agent call ORHP directly and renew the policy on our behalf. You might want to see if that is an option for you.

ORHP just changed their policy no more discounts. I just renewed a rental and tried but they said corporate discontinued the discounts. I had First American before but ORHP was cheaper until this year. A check of coverage shows ORHP covers more but it is more expensive. I have had claims with both companies and both paid all claims without hassle.

When you call around you may want to check their limitations per claim,
System, appliance etc. They vary. For instance my ac system caps at
$2500/yr which I did not know when I bought if.
Also. I tried to cancel this year (home service club) but was told I would
Have to reimburse them $250 for a claim they paid out. I complained &
Was promised 2 months premium credit. It never came through.

I've been pretty good with American Home Shield, but I've also heard bad reviews abot them. I have an older home and recently had trouble with my clothes dryer.

Both washer and dryer {Maytag} are 20 years old. After the last service call from AHS, they said they couldn't get parts for the dryer any longer and offered me a brand new model, with all the same features.

I didn't like the dryer they offered (a GE model) so I took the $600 cash AHS offered instead and purchased an LG model that I'm real happy with.

AHS costs $70 per service call and they had repair people out twice with new parts to fix the dryer which wouldn't dry completely, even on the hottest setting. I only paid the service charge of $70 once though.

IMO, I would consider a home warranty policy a very good idea, especially if you're home and appliances are older. I've had HS for about 6 years now and haven't had any problems or complaints about their service time or repair people.

Something similar happened to me with ORHP. The bottom broiler/oven of our 20+ year-old double oven quit working and ORHP couldn't get replacement parts so they offered to install a new one or give us the cash equivalent. We took the check for $2,714.
