How To use your home warranty

For members who purchased a home warranty for their current home, there is a 30-day activation period before you can start using your plan. If you purchased your warranty through a real estate transaction, your warranty is active at closing.*

*When home sellers add the Seller Coverage Option, their coverage begins immediately. Subject to $1,500 cap for all trades during the listing period; renewable upon review at the discretion of American Home Shield for a 6-month period, up to 12 months. **In some locations, members might have the option of choosing their own contracted Pro.

WHY AMERICAN HOME SHIELD?

We’re glad you asked.

We cover things homeowners insurance doesn’t.

American Home Shield isn’t insurance. We provide plans for people who have systems and appliances they’d like to keep in working order.

No system or appliance is too old.

You can get protection regardless of the age or appearance of your covered items — no maintenance records or inspection required. Now those breakdowns are our problem, not yours.

Even your satisfaction is covered.

With our 30-day workmanship guarantee, if you have an issue with your completed repair within 30 days of service, we’ll send a Pro back out for free.

The monthly cost of a home warranty in Florida depends on whether you take a basic plan or comprehensive coverage, the size and location of your home, and the service call fee you choose. The national standard for home warranties is between $500 to $700 per year for basic coverage, and the prices are similar to most national warranty companies in Florida.

While many claim to be the best home warranty companies in Florida, American Home Shield is the original. We've been operating since 1971 and are the home warranty company trusted by the most Americans, with more than 1.8 million clients protected in the USA.

When you need a contractor, like a plumber or an electrician, to make a repair visit, a Trade Service Call Fee is the out-of-pocket cost. When you select a home warranty plan, you choose the service call fees (either $75, $100, or $125, plus sales tax where applicable). Your service call fee doesn't pay for any repairs; it is the fee you pay for the contractor's visit to your home.

Our Florida home warranty plans cover most of the systems and appliances in your home, including those dearest to Floridians, such as air conditioning units and pools. Depending on your plan, our home warranties also cover the repair or replacement costs for home appliances, like built-in microwaves, refrigerators, washers, and dryers, as well as major home systems, like plumbing systems, garbage disposal, and your septic system.

Don't have a home warranty in Florida but need appliances or systems fixed quickly? AHS ProConnect offers affordable, upfront pricing and can have a vetted appliance repair professional at your door in as little as 60 minutes. We're the best in the home warranty industry and we're at your service!
