About Us

A New Concept in Home Warranties, Product Care, and Service

Our Story

When you ask for help, you want action. Not to be put on hold. Not to hear excuses. Not to wait for AC repairs during a heatwave.

From the start, OnPoint Warranty Solutions wanted to create a brand where the customer would always come first.

We also wanted to build a community of customer advocates that would relish -not avoid- the opportunity to help people protect the things they love. Their families, homes, and possessions.

HomEase’s Values

Serve with passion
Our future is built on supporting our members and service network with a level of responsiveness that shows we care about success for everyone.

Act with integrity
HomEase is built on honesty, accountability, and tenacity.

Human-Driven innovation
We use sophisticated technology to make the service process efficient. But innovation is more than tech, it's our people who push the boundaries of service.
