Protect Your Household with a Home Warranty
Although many people have homeowners insurance, it doesn't provide coverage when appliances or systems break down in your home. This can really stress your budget when you have to deal with a broken air conditioning unit or an electrical issue on short notice.
For instance, repairing an air conditioning unit can cost hundreds to thousands of dollars. If it needs to be replaced, that could set you back even more. However, when you take out a comprehensive home protection plan in Florida, you can rest assured that your home systems and appliances will be protected and that you won’t have to worry about how to solve the issue yourself.
With home warranty coverage in Florida, you could be protected from failure of your air conditioning, electrical, plumbing, and other covered systems—as well as appliances such as fridges, dishwashers, and trash compactors, depending on the plan that you end up choosing.

I came home after (a) few weeks of work out of state to find out that my water heater was broken. I called First American and received fast appointment set up with (a) local business to assess and repair my water heater. Local company was very good at communicating the appointment, arrival and problem and (the) time it will take to repair. I am very pleased with having (a) First American home warranty.
My Realtor said that First American was first-rate and that if I was gonna get anything, that would be the company. I had other companies in the past and these guys won. Usually, the turnaround's anywhere between 24 to 48 hours when I put in a request online. I get an email right away, and as far as an acknowledgment, right away I get a text message letting me know who the subcontract's been assigned. Right away, I get an email from the subcontractor letting me know when and how they're gonna be on site. It's just really smooth. Everybody is in harmony, working very effectively. Their subcontractors are very good, professional, and customer-focused. They communicate very effectively, letting us know where they are, how it's being fixed, why it's being fixed, and giving us some advice as well once they complete the work.
