What to look for in a home warranty in Maryland

Make sure your coverage checks all the boxes

A lot can come with a home warranty plan. But as a resident in MD, you’ll want to make sure your plan covers these essential items:

Air conditioning systems

Make sure your air conditioning system is working efficiently during Maryland’s hot, humid summers. Home warranty companies in Maryland should cover the parts and components of your air conditioning system in the event of a breakdown.

Heating systems

You wouldn't want to be caught without a working heating unit during Maryland's cold, wet winters. A home warranty can help. American Home Shield even offers discounted seasonal HVAC tune-ups—or one free HVAC tune-up per contract term if you have the ShieldPlatinum™ plan.

Electrical systems

With all that energy being used during the winter and summer months to heat and cool your home—and light it during the darker months—you should rest assured that any issues with your interior electrical lines and fuse panel box are covered under your home warranty. American Home Shield even offers an Electronics Protection Plan for your tablets, desktop computer, TVs, and more.

Roof leak repairs

Maryland averages 59 inches of rain and 20 inches of snow per year. All that precipitation can wreak havoc on your roof’s shingles, making roof leak repair coverage essential.
