A warranty for your home is an annual renewable service contract that provides protection and peace of mind should a covered breakdown occur. Home warranties help cut the cost to repair or replace many of the systems and appliances in your home. It complements your homeowners insurance by protecting things that your insurance doesn’t.


An American Home Shield home service plan is like a traditional home warranty, but it goes beyond that with exclusive member perks. In addition to helping with the cost and hassle to repair or replace parts of home appliances and systems that break down over time, a home service plan provides American Home Shield members with exclusive pricing on home maintenance services, new appliances, and a variety of home services — from tech installation and setup to pre-season HVAC tune-ups, and more.

The short answer is that it's a proactive way to cover the home systems and appliances you rely on every day. So, when a covered item breaks down due to normal wear and tear, we will help with the cost to repair it, and if it can't be repaired, we will replace the item for you subject to the limitations and exclusions of your plan. In addition, a home service plan helps protect your budget and saves you time searching for a qualified contractor.

American Home Shield home warranties, which we refer to as home service plans, cover the home systems and appliances that you use everyday—no matter their age. You can cover the items that keep your home running smoothly and choose a plan that’s right for you. Our home service plans cover the major components of heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, plumbing systems, kitchen appliances, and laundry appliances, as well as roof leak repair, and more. Feel empowered to ditch that single appliance extended warranty, because with American Home Shield, you receive more coverage and protection.

The cost to repair or replace an A/C unit without a warranty can be up to $3,800*. Because A/C units are covered in all three of our home service plans, if a covered breakdown occurs, you would simply pay the Trade Service Call Fee you selected ($75, $100 or $150) when you purchased your plan, to have it repaired or replaced subject to the coverage limitations and exclusions in your plan. The cost to repair or replace a refrigerator without a warranty can be up to $1,500*. Refrigerators are covered in our ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum plans. When you think about all of the home systems and appliances you use every day, repair and replacement costs can add up quickly. An American Home Shield home service plan is a great way to protect your budget and keep your home running smoothly.


*Repair/replacement costs are the eightieth percentile of U.S. costs according to a nationwide survey of homeowners conducted in 2019 by ClearVantage for American Home Shield.
