Home Systems Coverage

American Home Shield's® Home Warranty provides protection against those seemingly inevitable covered household breakdowns. Unlike homeowners' insurance, which protects your home against fire, natural disasters and theft, a Home Warranty protects your budget against those more commonplace problems. When a pipe leaks, the air conditioner unit fails or your water heater goes cold, your homeowners' insurance policy won't come to your aid. However, your AHS Home Warranty will help you with the covered repair or replacement of a failing home system.

When you invest in an AHS Home Warranty, you will enjoy robust coverage of major components of several important home systems. With a home warranty in place, you don't have to deal with your malfunctioning unit -- and the resultant expenses -- without any help. We'll connect you to a licensed, professional service contractor, who will diagnose your system malfunction and recommend a repair or replacement.
