Choice Home Warranty Home Warranty Review

Choice Home Warranty provides affordable, easily understandable home warranties to ensure that your home systems and appliances are covered in case of breakdown. Home warranties cover household items not usually included by homeowners insurance, such as cookers, washing machines, and air conditioning systems.

Choice Home Warranty offers two types of warranty cover: Basic and Total. Basic warranty cover includes the most popular household items, such as plumbing, electrical, water heater, and dishwasher cover. Alternatively, the Total plan includes air conditioning systems, clothes washers, dryers, and refrigerators. Additional items like pool, spa and well pumps can be added as optional extras. You don’t need to have a home inspection to take out a warranty with Choice Home Warranty.

Payout limitations

Choice Home Warranty provides comprehensive coverage for a wide range of systems and appliances, but they don’t always cover the entire expense of a repair or replacement. As per their sample contract, they’ve set a cap of $3,000 per covered item for any combination of access, diagnosis, repair, or replacement costs. If the cost surpasses this $3,000 threshold, any additional expenses fall on you. Some specific items, like septic systems, standalone freezers, and trash compactors, have a lower coverage ceiling, capped at $500 per claim.

Exclusions

Pre-existing conditions, damages caused by structural damage, water damage, maintenance due to abuse or neglect, Acts of God.

The Basic plan starts from $46 per month, with the Total plan costing $55 per month. These prices increase if your house is larger than 5,000 square feet. Optional extras are available, costing between $3 and $15 per item per month to cover. All repairs made by contractors are guaranteed for 90 days, which is longer than the market average.

You can then choose to cover the following items as optional extras:

  • Pool/Spa
  • Central vacuum
  • Second Refrigerator
  • Limited roof leaks
  • Stand-alone freezer
  • Well pump
  • Sump pump
  • Septic system
  • Septic tank plumbing

We would recommend the Total plan, as the difference in price is worth the extra items covered.

FAQ’s

What is the difference between homeowners’ insurance and a home warranty?

Homeowners insurance tends to cover the building from hazards such as flooding and fire. On the other hand, a home warranty covers maintained household items.

Do I have to pay a service fee?

Each service callout incurs a flat $85 charge.

Do I need a home inspection before getting a home warranty?

Most home warranty providers require a home inspection, but Choice Home Warranty provides home warranty coverage without a home inspection.

Customer Support

Choice Home Warranty has a 24/7 customer helpline, as you’d expect from a company that deals with household emergencies. You can also reach the company via an online form.

In our experience, we decided to contact Choice Home Warranty via their service department at (888) 373-7924 with our queries. The customer support team answered our call quickly, and the representative was helpful, dealing with our call in a professional manner. Choice Home Warranty told us that contractors would be contacted within four hours of the call, and someone would visit the house to fix the problem within 48 hours. In our case, we had a contractor arrive within 24 hours.

Looking online, there are mixed reviews about Choice Home Warranty’s customer service, but our experience was excellent.

Choice Home Warranty has a detailed privacy policy on its website detailing how your private data is handled and managed. The company collects and stores your information securely and may use your data for business-related purposes as described in the privacy policy. Yet, your data will not be given or sold to third parties for marketing purposes.

In Conclusion

Choice Home Warranty has established itself as a market leader due to its affordable cover and easy-to-understand price plans.
