Home Warranties Explained

A smoke detector is an integral system in your home, one that keeps you and your family safe in the event of a fire. When your smoke detector fails to work, both your family and your home are at risk. While replacing a battery can often be the simple fix for a malfunctioning smoke detector, in some cases, the repair requires more than a battery change. In these instances, you'll need to find a skilled service contractor to repair or replace your smoke detector to maximize your safety.

Being connected to a qualified, professional service contractor is simple when you have an American Home Shield® home warranty. When your smoke detector stops working, we'll send a service contractor to your home to diagnose the problem and recommend a repair or replacement of your malfunctioning smoke detector. You'll pay a Trade Service Call Fee, as stipulated in your contract as well as any other cost not covered by your contract. When you invest in an AHS® home warranty, you'll benefit from the budget protection and reliability that this warranty brings. Find out more about how you can protect your smoke detector and major components of your other home systems with an AHS Home Warranty.
