I may not have done my homework on home warranties, especially when it comes to air conditioners. Now that my HVAC has failed me, I’m doing the research now. I see where most home warranty companies want their own HVAC repair provider. I called the warranty company to report that my air conditioner is not cooling. Afterwards, I decided to research A/C repair, and my warranty company, in particular. I should have done this research before I purchased a home warranty plan when I closed on my house 3 years ago. Consumer Reports wrote an article, and it wasn’t favorable, especially about their A/C repairs. So now, not only am I waiting for the home warranty company to return my call, but I’m hoping that an HVAC company calls me as well. Many hours later, the warranty company returned my call, and informed me that a claim had been filed on my behalf. The next day, an HVAC company contacted me, now that I’m going into my 3rd day without air conditioning. Unfortunately, even with the sweltering heat, the A/C technician can’t get to my house until later tomorrow afternoon, which will be my 4th day without air conditioning. Nonetheless, I feel good about my upcoming air conditioning repair. It may take longer to get an HVAC repair through the warranty company, but it looks like it is going to work out. Now all I need is to get through the next few days of heat, and I should hopefully have a working air conditioner not long after.
