With over 30 years of providing home warranty to thousands of homeowners, First Premier stands out as one of the highly revered companies. The annual fee though varies based on plans is reasonable. 

With two major plans, First Premier offers a home warranty in different stages to accommodate all classes of homeowners. The premier plan and platinum plan are the two major plans with different coverage. The coverage includes a long list of household items all totaling up to 14 appliances and 7 in terms of systems. Common items covered are: 

  •  Plumbing System
  • Electrical System
  • Water heater
  • Clothes dryer
  • Clothes washer
  • Dishwasher

  • Ductwork
  • Air conditioning, etc. 

These items are enumerated in the agreement plan. The difference between the premier plan and platinum the exception of some items. With the add-on option, you can choose to provide coverage for some home appliances and items not included in any of the plans. Items such as Vaccum, leaking roof incidents, septic system, second refrigerator, and more may be included alongside a plan of choice. 

The service for a contractor each time a claim is assessed and repaired or replaced ranges from $50-$100. A plan fee of $419 applies to the premier plan and $499 for the platinum plan annually. Although not common, First Premier allows the inclusion of two refrigerator and heating systems in the platinum plan. Overall, both plans offer a 30-day warranty on repairs and a 90-day on replaced parts. 

The customer service and contractor service are top-notch. For the contractors, they are thoroughly vetted to guarantee competency. The customer service operates 24 hours every day and all week. Lodge any claim and it will get attended to, then a contractor is scheduled to make an assessment and subsequent repair or replacement.
