The deductible is likely to vary depending on the appliance and will vary per repair. For example, you may need to replace your septic system. The contractor will tell you that it is 5,000 dollars. Your deductible is $500. So, you will pay the deductible and your home warranty will cover the rest. Depending on how your contract is set up, you may only have to pay this one for the year or you may have to pay it based on the amount of the repair. For example, now that you spent the $500 and the septic was replaced, your hot water heater has begun to leak. Your home warranty may cover it since you have already paid the deductible for the year, or you may need to pay another share of the deductible. It is very important that you read the fine print so that you are clear as to what the warranty covers and what the cost of your deductible is. The contract is the legal agreement between you and the home warranty company. It means that they are legally required to hold up to their end of the agreement.

Let's face it, home warranty is no different than any other insurance, period. If you recognize that you are paying for something that may never be needed going in, then when you have a loss, you recognize the benefit. The 50 70 per loss/claim is your deductible, which you have to pay on any coverage, cell phone, auto, homeowners, etc. Each and every claim is a new loss. With that said, I will say, I had a home warranty on my "home from hell" in California, and Thank God we had it. They paid for a new furnace, new water heater, new well pump, just to mention a few things.

Your article didn't express any point of view. In fact, I got the sense you pulled your punches, in the hopes that more warranty companies would pay to become Angie's List reviewed. Here is a simple test to determine if a home warranty makes sense to you. Call your state insurance department and ask them what the loss ratio is for warranty coverage in your state. As an example, the industry average for after market auto warranties is 8%. That means for every dollar the warranty company collects from their clients, they pay out 8 cents on the dollar for claims. You can actually get better odds in Vegas. I received a home warranty when I bought my home from the estate of the previous owner. It proved valuable, since the previous owner had not kept up maintenance for some years. The warranty paid for replacement of the frozen main water shutoff, fixing an unsteady toilet and fixing a leaky tub drain fixture. That said, the quality of some of the work was not great.
