Pennsylvania Home Warranty
Home systems and appliances can break down at the worst possible time. Whether it's the air conditioning unit, heating system, or refrigerator that goes kaput, fixing those problems is a top priority for any homeowner. But repairs can often cost hundreds, or even thousands of dollars if you need to replace one of them.
Luckily, when you take out a Pennsylvania home warranty plan with First American, you can avoid worrying about dealing with appliance repairs on your own.

Home Buyer? Home Seller?
When looking at home warranty companies in Pittsburgh and across the state, it's a good idea to learn whether their plans provide comprehensive coverage for homebuyers and home sellers, and not just homeowners.
Homebuyers are taking on a substantial risk by purchasing a house, even when they prepare for all the possible financial aspects. You can never be entirely sure if everything in the home is in order, and a faulty or damaged home system can easily cost buyers thousands of dollars to repair or replace.
But with the home warranty plan from First American, homebuyers can rest assured that when a covered item breaks, they would receive prompt help, without having to worry about big additional repair costs after the purchase.
Home sellers can also feel at ease when they opt for a home warranty in Pennsylvania. When trying to sell a home, you don't want to deal with unexpected breakdowns yourself, as they are not only costly but time-consuming, and can mean an interruption to the process of the sale.
When you work with First American, you will have professional assistance that is just a phone call away to help you solve issues your having with an appliance or system. What's more, protecting your home’s appliances can also make buyers more confident about closing a sale with you. Coverage lets them know that you take care of the systems and appliances in the house.

First American Reviews
When exploring home warranty companies, you must make sure they have a good track record and have met the needs of their other customers. To learn what our customers have to say, read some of the PA home warranty reviews.
Dryer Repair - What can I say other than I will be renewing when the time comes. I have 2 Friends that just bought home and bought your coverage. I cannot say ENOUGH about you guys. I had to call you several times on items in our house we bought and needless to say repairs where complete. Everyone that was sent out was VERY professional. It's great to have that peace of mind to know when I call I will have great service.
Since getting it a few months ago, we've had to use it twice and have been very pleased. The first time we had our AC leaking due to the drain being clogged, they were quick to come out and fix it and did a good job. This last service really proved that the company was willing to stand by their contract without any problems. Our dryer was overheating and we had the service tech come out and they tried to fix it, but discovered it was not able to be fixed. So the tech notified First American and within a day I was contacted that they were going to replace our dryer. The dryer is getting delivered tomorrow and it is actually the same brand and comparable to the one we had before. If we didn't have the warranty we would have been out several hundred dollars, so we are happy to have this service!
Problem with kitchen pipes and bathroom sink stopper. Kitchen pipes leaked and bathroom sink drain stopper did not work. The tech tightened and adjusted the kitchen pipes and replaced the bathroom drain assembly. After testing the work, I was satisfied.
