The ShieldGold Plan: Coverage for Everyday Items


As a responsible homeowner, you have a homeowners insurance policy on your house and keep up with maintenance and repairs. Covering your home in case of a natural disaster, theft, and more is important, but what about protecting your hardworking appliances and home systems? That’s where the American Home Shield® ShieldGold™ plan can help. 

Like the ShieldSilver™ plan, the ShieldGold™ plan covers parts of 14 major systems in your home, including 

Just like the ShieldSilver™ plan, we offer up to $100 toward rekeying services as well as discounted HVAC tune-ups each year to ensure that your A/C and heating units are running smoothly. 

Additionally, the AHS ShieldGold™ plan includes a laundry and kitchen appliance warranty, which covers parts of nine major kitchen and laundry appliances if they malfunction due to wear and tear. A home warranty for appliances can benefit your budget and save you time because we provide you with a qualified and fully vetted contractor when a breakdown occurs.  


American Home Shield will pay up to $3,000 per appliance* to repair or replace the covered major kitchen and laundry appliances in your home if they break down from everyday use and wear and tear:

  • Instant hot/cold water dispenser

  • Refrigerator**

  • Built-in microwave

  • Ranges/cooktop

  • Oven

  • Dishwasher

  • Garbage disposal

  • Washer

  • Dryer

The ShieldGold™ plan even covers multiples of items, like that extra fridge you have in the garage! As a member, you also have access to our Appliance Discount Program, which offers exclusive discounts on top-of-the-line appliances. 

Additional coverage is also available with the American Home Shield® ShieldGold™ plan, so you can customize your coverage to fit your needs. American Home Shield makes maintaining and enjoying your home as worry-free as possible with extra coverage for:

  • Septic and well pumps

  • Electronics

  • Roof leak repairs

  • Your guest unit

  • Your spa and pool

Our home warranty plans will help keep your systems and appliances running smoothly. The best part is,  it doesn’t matter how old your covered system or appliance is—we’ll repair it for you. If it can’t be repaired, we’ll replace it* and haul away the old item at no additional charge. This is why we are the trusted ally of homeowners.
