Coverage


Select Home Warranty will cover mechanical breakdowns of covered appliances and systems on a number of living spaces. If you own multiple units and would like to cover them, you may qualify for a discount. Covered living spaced include:

        • Rental properties
        • Mobile homes
        • Condos
        • Duplexes
        • Triplexes
        • Multi-unit residences
        • Free-standing homes. If you own multiple units and would like to cover them, you may get a discount.


      Coverage Details: Depending on the plan you choose, Select will cover common appliances and/or home systems. Applicable coverage applies to all brands and models, regardless of age. Select does not ask to inspect a customer’s appliances before they can obtain their warranty. However, when a repair person arrives for a repair, they will be able to see if the appliance had pre-existing conditions or was improperly installed. In these cases, they may not cover the repair.




      Claim Limit: Select does not have an annual limit on claims, so if multiple appliances or systems break in one year, you're covered if they're under your warranty. However, Select does have a repair/replace limit on HVAC of $2,000 and a limit of $500 for plumbing, electrical, and appliances. This limit is per item.


      Select does not cover:

          • Appliances that are still covered under a manufacturer's warranty or extended warranty. These types of warranties usually only last for 1-3 years after you buy the appliance.
          • Portable microwaves
          • Solar systems
          • Tankless water heaters
          • Plumbing issues related to collapsed underground pipes or root intrusion
          • Acts of nature or anything that should be covered under your homeowner's insurance, such as fire damage, storm damage, or theft


      Please review your contract for any additional policies or exclusions you need to be aware of. As is an industry standard, coverage begins 30 days after your payment to reduce the chances of someone purchasing the policy after an appliance breaks down and then claiming it happened after the policy goes into effect. Safeguards like this help them keep their plan costs low and payouts fairer for all customers.

Pricing & Onboarding

Select offers three plan tiers:

      • Bronze Care - Covers common home appliances like refrigerators and dryers.
      • Gold Care - Covers home systems like HVAC, water heater, and plumbing.
      • Platinum Care - Covers both appliances and systems in addition to some extras like garage door opener and ceiling fans.

Select Home Warranty uses a case-by-case quote system instead of a “one-size-fits-all” payment structure so that you pay the most reasonable amount for your plan. You can also add roof coverage to any plan for an additional charge.

Service plan fees vary depending on the type of call. For example, a plumbing issue would be a "trade" fee, and a dishwasher breakdown would be an "appliance service" fee. These rates will be fully disclosed to you in your contract.

Select also offers a loyalty discount to those who keep their plan for multiple years.

Contractors & Service




Select works with a nationwide network of licensed and trusted independent contractors. When you experience one or more serviceable events, you can:

    • 1 ) Ensure that the malfunctioning unit is not a risk to people, pets, or the home before making a service call. If possible, you should turn the unit off.
    • 2 ) Quickly review your contract to ensure the unit is covered by Select.
    • 3 ) Contact Select online or by phone to file a claim 24/7. You'll briefly explain what's wrong, and they'll assign a pre-screened licensed local professional to check it out.
    • 4 ) Wait for the contractor to repair the item, and you pay the service fee stated in your contract.

If repairing the item exceeds a certain amount, then Select will give you a replacement option up to the above-mentioned limits. :

If you choose to contact your own repair service instead of filing a claim through Select, the service, repair, or replacement will not be covered by Select.
