I guess this could tie into home repair...
Is a home warranty worth it?
My main concerns.. getting a home with a pool.. and the AC. The pool because I'm clueless about pool repairs and frankly it scares me,lol
Also, have a daughter with severe medical issues and her health is directly effected by how hot she gets. If she gets too hot,as in if her body temp goes up to 98 degrees F(she normally runs lower body temp), it will directly effect her respiratory rate, her oxygen levels, increase seizures activity.etc.
So I need to always keep the house, more so her room, cool at all times.
Do you guys think a home warranty would be a good purchase? Ive been reading horror stories online, and I'm scared of wasting money on a bogus home warranty, but also scared if the AC breaks down and have to buy a brand new unit.
Background story to my fear:
This summer my dads AC broke... he paid a couple hundred bucks to fix it...
It breaks again... a different company told him that for 1-2K more he could get a brand new unit with new ductwork, everything new and installed.
Not too long after, AC breaks again... I think he has to pay to fix that also..(not sure).
He was without AC for a while too.
This kind of thing could potentially put my daughter in the hospital.
So does anyone have any solid advice on home warranties?(Besides horror stories)
