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 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.

BREAKDOWNS HAPPEN. THAT’S WHY WE’RE HERE.

Here are some average cost ranges to repair or replace typical household items.

A/C Unit

$150 - $5,000

Heating and Ductwork

$105 - $6,000

Refrigerator

$200 - $1,700

Water Heater

$240 - $1,500

Repair/replacement cost ranges are the twentieth and eightieth percentile of U.S. costs as reported in A Study of Homeowners' Appliance and Home Systems Service Experiences, a nationwide survey of homeowners conducted in 2019 by ClearVantage for American Home Shield.
