Payout Limitations

Select Home Warranty enforces stricter requirements compared to many other companies regarding regular maintenance and record-keeping. In the absence of maintenance records and/or photographs, the maximum reimbursement for any appliance or system is capped at $150.

However, if maintenance records are available, heating and cooling systems are eligible for coverage up to a maximum of $2,000. To illustrate, if the cost of repairing the air conditioning unit amounts to $2,500, the customer would be responsible for covering the $500 difference.

Similarly, there is a $500 limit for electrical, plumbing, and appliance repairs or replacements. Optional add-on items are subject to individual $400 payout limits. The positive aspect is that there is no annual restriction on the number of covered repairs, which allows buyers to make the most of their home warranty.


Items covered by manufacturer’s warranty, routine maintenance, acts of God, damage caused by pets or pests, manufacturer defects, owner negligence
