A home warranty is a year-long, renewable home service plan that covers home systems and appliances when they stop working due to normal wear and tear — like your air conditioning system, refrigerator, water heater, and washer and dryer. What is covered in a home warranty can be adjusted according to your needs and budget — at AHS, we offer home warranty coverage in a variety of tiers to suit you.

See the plan contract for coverage details, including service fees, limitations and exclusions. Charges for non-covered items may apply.
