Guest Unit Coverage

Guest units are a practical and convenient addition to your home, but they add additional maintenance. Having the right coverage can make it a lot easier to keep things up and running. That's where we come in. American Home Shield Guest Unit Coverage can be added to the ShieldSilver, ShieldGold, and ShieldPlatinium plans.


  • Extend your coverage to guest units (up to 750 sq. ft.).

See the plan agreement for coverage details, including service fees, limitations and exclusions. Coverage limits and charges for non-covered items may apply.

Yes, our members can purchase Additional Coverage for Guest Units that are 750 square feet or less, and it provides the same coverage as the home warranty plan you selected for your main home.  


Guest Unit Coverage runs concurrently with your annual home warranty plan. When your home warranty plan expires, so does the Additional Coverage, but it can be renewed upon expiration. 

You can purchase Guest Unit Coverage when you purchase your home warranty plan, within the first 60 days of a plan being active, or during the open renewal period. 

Once your coverage begins (30 days after you purchase your new home warranty plan) you can request service 24/7 online or call 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service. 

Our best plan is the one that’s right for you! The Shield Silver™ plan is for homeowners who want to cover the must-haves like your heating and cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems. The Shield Gold™ plan is perfect for anyone who wants to live life with less interruptions, especially in the laundry room and kitchen, with coverage for the main systems and appliances you use every day. And with the Shield Platinum™ plan, you get coverage for just about everything: key components of 23 major home systems and appliances, plus premium features like Roof Leak Repair Coverage, double the coverage for appliances, and a free HVAC Tune-up. No two homes are the same, and that’s why we have options – so you can find the plan that fits your needs.


Home Appliances and Systems are covered in our home service plans, but you can cover the items below with Additional Coverage.
