Why AHS image


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 contractor back out for free.


We use licensed, independent contractors from our contractor network, and they're regularly evaluated by customers like you to make sure they're meeting our standards.

The cost of a home warranty in Illinois depends on the type of coverage and the service call fees you choose for your plan. The average price of a home warranty in America goes from $500 to $700 per year, depending on extras and what's included. American Home Shield has often been recognized as the most customizable home warranty in the market.

Every home warranty company operating in Illinois claims to be the best and different companies will adapt better to different needs. American Home Shield is the longest-running home warranty provider in the country, starting the industry in 1971, and during this time we've gained the hearts of more Americans than any other home warranty company, with more than 1.8 million clients.

Home warranties start in the things that home insurance doesn't tend to cover. For example, if your heater or furnace breaks down, a home warranty plan can cover them and ensure these appliances and systems are repaired or replaced.

While in many cases American Home Shield Home Warranties cover preexisting conditions, there are instances when you need home repairs immediately. AHS ProConnect offers affordable, upfront pricing and can have a vetted, appliance repair professional at your door in as little as 60 minutes. Here are some popular cities in Illinois:

Arlington Heights Aurora Bolingbrook Chicago Evanston
Homer Glen Highland Park Joliet Lombard Naperville
Oak Brook Orland Park Riverdale Waukegan Woodridge
