Top Reasons to Appreciate Your Home Warranty Plan

Life gets busy and hectic. Here's a look at the major reasons to appreciate your home warranty plan coverage.


We lead busy and hectic lives, but an American Home Shield home warranty plan can make things easier by providing crucial budget protection. For American Home Shield members, a home warranty with us is better because it includes member-exclusive pricing on home maintenance services, as well as a variety of home services — from tech installation and setup to pre-season HVAC tune-ups, and more. Our plans work harder to give you peace of mind while protecting your budget.

If you need a home appliance or system repaired, finding someone to do the work is easy with American Home Shield. You can spend less time watching do-it-yourself videos on YouTube and making trips to the hardware store. And, you can save more of your hard-earned money for other things, like home improvements. 

Here are just a few reasons to be thankful for the benefits of a home warranty plan.

Budget Protection

In times like these, you need to do everything you can to protect your savings and finances.

So, if there’s only one reason to be thankful for your home warranty plan, it’s the budget protection it provides. Home repairs and appliance replacements tend to be expensive — even a cheap repair or replacement can cost a few hundred dollars — and you never know when you’re going to need one. Even in the best of economic times, it can be hard to budget for these unexpected expenses. 

An American Home Shield home warranty plan helps you control the cost of home repairs and replacements and makes it easy to fit these costs into your budget. How much is a home service plan? They vary by plan and depend on the add-ons you select, like pool and spa or electronics protection, and your yearly plan costs can be spread out over the course of the year so you know how much you can expect to pay to maintain your home systems and appliances each month. There are no surprises when it comes to service call fees, either. You’ll choose your fee when you purchase your plan, so you know exactly how much you'll pay when you call to have a service professional visit your home. We’re also transparent with our coverage limitations and deductibles. 

What does a home service plan cover? The answer is most of the costs of repairing and replacing covered home systems and appliances. Your American Home Shield home warranty plan can defray thousands and save you from spending your entire savings on a home repair at a time when you need to hang on to every dollar.

Access to Reliable Service Professionals

If you’ve ever tried to hire a service professional on your own, you know how difficult it can be. Just finding someone who has time to come out and give you a quote can be hard, not to mention getting quotes from multiple service professionals and then vetting them by checking licenses, references, reviews and portfolios. 

When you buy a home warranty plan from American Home Shield, we’ll take care of all that for you. With just one phone call or one visit to your online member portal, you can arrange for service from a trusted local professional. We work with local service professionals all around the country, so you can get the service you need and still support a local tradesperson.

More Time for Yourself and Your Family

At times like these, when you’re working from home, helping kids with school, caring for relatives, and prepping for spring, a home service plan can provide peace of mind and protection. If something breaks down around the house, it causes worry about paying to fix it or you end up spending your precious free time figuring out how to fix it yourself. You can easily spend days or weeks looking for a service professional. Placing a service request with American Home Shield will give you more time to spend with those most important to you and protect your budget.
