Home Heating and Ductwork Warranty Coverage

Home Warranties Explained

Your heating system is an essential system in your home, especially when temperatures get chilly. When you experience a malfunction with your heating system, chances are your stress levels immediately begin to rise. You probably don't know how to repair the heating system yourself, and you're working against time as your house begins to lose its warmth. Even more, you might worry about the expense of the repair or replacement of your heating system.

American Home Shield® offers several home warranty plans with heating system coverage that can help ease your worries. When your heating system experiences a covered malfunction, simply contact an AHS representative online or via phone to be connected to a qualified, professional service contractor. This service contractor will diagnose your heating problem and recommend a repair or replacement. You'll pay a Trade Service Call Fee and any other fees as outlined in your contract. Best of all, you'll enjoy expert service on your heating system so that you won't be left in the cold for too long.
