Do not use Select Home Warranty, the company is a scam. The most they will pay out for a claim is $150. They take 10 days to just look a claim, then you have to keep calling to follow-up and then they ask you for the same stuff you already sent them and say they didn't receive it, then they want you to come up with 3 years of receipts of service for your HVAC system even though I just purchased this house 6 months ago and obviously that's not possible. All their marketing is gearing towards homebuyers, realtors, and senior citzens to scam you into thinking you will be covered so you feel at ease moving into your new home, but nothing is covered.
