American Home Shield Complaint - Don't do business with AMERICAN HOME SHIELD
CARROLL, IOWA -- I took out a home warranty with American Home Shield when I purchased my home in 2002. I paid every year as the price went up and up for the sole purpose of having a warranty on my air conditioning heat pump since our house was 20 yrs old. When the heat pump finally went out after 27 years I needed a replacement. The unit they wanted to send me was the cheapest and lowest quality unit they could find. My unit was a top of the line unit in it's time which was 1982 and cost 3000 dollars then. The cost of the unit they wanted to replace mine with was 1000 dollars! This is a total rip off. I got 4 quotes on comparable models to mine ranging from 5700 to 4925. AMS told me if I didn't accept the unit they were replacing mine with they would give me a cash out of 2031 dollars which the technician that was replacing it was charging 995 dollars to install it. I informed them that I hope they could sleep good at night ripping people off this way.
My advice to everyone is to not do business with these people because you'll be giving them your money for junk in return.
