Air Conditioning Warranty Coverage

Home Warranties Explained

Your A/C is an important system in your home, especially when temperatures rise. Even though your A/C system will last for about 10 to 15 years, it will probably malfunction several times over the course of its life. Many issues can occur in an A/C unit. You might receive an unusually high electric bill that could clue you into a problem. You might notice an indoor leak, your unit might may not be cooling properly, or your outdoor unit might not turn on. For these issues and more, you need a reliable repair solution.

With the American Home Shield® network of contractors, you will enjoy reliable service and effective repairs, and if your covered item can't be repaired, we will replace it in accordance with the terms and conditions of your home service plan. When your A/C unit fails, let American Home Shield A/C coverage help ease your stress.

Air Conditioning and Ductwork

An American Home Shield® home service plan is an investment in your home, providing coverage to repair or replace covered breakdowns, such as your A/C system. As a result, you want to select a home service plan that best suits your family's needs. American Home Shield offers three plans to choose from that include coverage for your A/C system.

What are Your Options for Home Warranties with Air Conditioner Coverage?

  • The ShieldSilver™ plan helps protect components of 14 major systems that keep your home running, including heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, and plumbing systems. 
  • The ShieldGold™ plan provides the benefits of the ShieldSilver™ plan but covers parts of up to 23 essential appliances and systems that you use every day. This means that your home appliances, in addition to the major components of your home systems, are covered so you can keep your day-to-day routine running smoothly.
  • The ShieldPlatinum™ plan is our best plan yet to help you protect your home and keep it running smoothly. It covers everything in ShieldGold™, plus roof leak repair and includes coverage boosts like unlimited A/C refrigerant and one free pre-season HVAC tune-up.

What's Covered in a Home Warranty with Air Conditioner Coverage?

American Home Shield® home service plans with A/C coverage include repair or replacement of many air conditioner components as well as ductwork, subject to the limitations and exclusions in your contract. Your coverage level depends on the type of unit you have. For example, all components of the following systems are fully covered:

  • Ducted central electric split and package units
  • Geothermal
  • Wall air conditioners
  • Mini-splits

Ductwork coverage includes a number of components, including the plenums, dampers, damper-only controls and leaks or breaks in the ductwork from the heating and/or A/C unit. Your home service plan contract will also outline any limits or exclusions of home A/C coverage.

Understand the specific terms of your home service plan by talking to an AHS specialist. We'll help guide you to the right home service plan with A/C coverage to meet your household's needs and budget. Then, the next time the A/C goes out, you won't be stressed about the hassle and expense of the repair. Our qualified, professional service contractors will diagnose, repair, or replace your A/C unit as your contract stipulates.
