I have owned my house twenty days less than a year.

My First American Homebuyers Protection plan is a year long.

Today I realized my AC wasn't working.

It's going to cost me $55.

I am so renewing.

They're going to pay for a new AC? Wow. Good deal.

GO YOU!
So many people let the warranty expire after the first year and THEN something major breaks. Make sure you renew EVERY year. You just never know when something (especially in an older home) major is going to break, leak, etc. It will continue to be the cheapest few hundred bucks (I know, it sounds ridiculous, but, really you will make out huge in the long run) you will ever invest in your home. You can't get a repair person to step into your house for $55 let alone, totally replace or repair a problem. Smart MOVE!

Re: GO YOU!
Hopefully nothing major will break! My house isn't very old (1982) and has almost all new appliances, the oldest of which is my A/C, at about 5 years. But still! Obviously I agree :)

It's typically not worth renewing. Get what you can out of the home warranty, then ditch it.

By the way, if anyone shows up to repair your unit who you don't trust for any reason, you don't have to let them into your house and you can tell him to piss off and call the company to send someone who at least appears qualified.

You should also be prepared to spend many, many days on the phone to eventually get the unit fully repaired. Do NOT tell them you are satisfied with the work until you run the repaired unit for at least a week at sixty-five degrees. Wear socks.
