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 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.


The monthly costs of a home warranty in Texas depend on whether you choose a basic plan or comprehensive coverage, the size of your home, the amount you choose for your Trade Service Call Fee, and if you choose any extra coverage. Our home warranties start from $39.95 per month. Find out the cost of home warranties and service fees in Texas by checking out our plans.

Having a home warranty in Texas isn't compulsory, but it's a great way to safeguard your major appliances and your wallet. If you live in Texas and are buying your first home, are an established, homeowner, or are in the buying and selling process, a home warranty is one of the best ways to avoid expensive, out-of-pocket costs on home repairs and replacements. 

Yes! American Home Shield is a Texas home warranty company that has you covered.

A Trade Service Call Fee is the out-of-pocket cost for a trade professional, like a plumber or electrician, to come to your home to provide service. You choose the service fee amount (either $75, $100 or $125, plus sales tax where applicable) when you purchase your plan. Your service fee doesn't pay for any repairs, it is the fee you pay for the contractor's visit to your home.

If you are looking for home warranty companies in Texas, American Home Shield offers the most comprehensive coverage for all the major home systems that you rely on every day. As the best in the home warranty industry, AHS can offer you a level of coverage and service fees to suit your home and budget. Whether you live in Austin, Dallas, Houston or anywhere in between, an AHS Texas home warranty has your systems and appliances covered. 

Texas homeowners usually purchase home warranties from a home warranty provider. This protects essential home systems and appliances. Sometimes real estate agents offer coverage from home warranty companies in Texas to their clients, or a seller might purchase a home warranty as part of the sale of their home.

AHS offers home warranty coverage for preexisting conditions in many cases, but there are times 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.
