As the seasons change, it's important to ensure your heating and cooling systems are working properly. We recommend getting a pre-season tune-up twice a year — once in spring to prepare your A/C system for summer, and again in fall to make sure your heating system is ready for winter. Keeping your HVAC system in top condition can help prevent breakdowns and possibly prolong its life. Tune-ups are available for just $75 per unit with our ShieldSilver™, ShieldGold™ plans. One free tune-up per contract term is included in the ShieldPlatinum™ plan.
HVAC Tune-up services are provided by American Home Shield ProConnect™.

What does your spring and fall tune-up include?
An American Home Shield® home service plan does more than help with the cost of covered breakdowns. By making regular maintenance easier, your plan can help you avoid breakdowns in the first place. It's just one more way we look out for our members.
American Home Shield uniquely offers discounted, pre-season HVAC Tune-ups to our members. As the seasons change, it’s important to ensure that your A/C and heating systems are working properly, which is why we recommend getting a professional tune-up twice a year – once in the spring to prepare for warm, summer days ahead and then again in the fall to ensure that your heater is ready for the winter. Our spring and fall HVAC Tune-ups are discounted at $75 per unit with the ShieldSilver™ and ShieldGold™ plans. If you have our ShieldPlatinum™ plan, you receive one free tune-up per contract term as well as unlimited A/C refrigerant, which is otherwise $10/pound.
Absolutely. The typical cost to repair or replace a heating unit without a home warranty can be up to $3,625*. With an American Home Shield® home warranty, if you experience a breakdown and the item is covered, we will repair it for you, or replace it if it can’t be repaired. A home warranty is a great way to protect your budget from unexpected breakdowns. Learn more about our A/C and heating system coverage.
*Repair/replacement costs are the eightieth persentile of U.S. costs according to a nationwide survey of homeowners conducted in 2019 by ClearVantage for American Home Shield.

It was 100 degrees and my AC went out. Called AHS but the contractor couldn't come until the next day. I rented a motel room for the night and as I was getting ready to leave, the contractor called and said he could be there that night if I still wanted him to!!! I was soooo happy. He fixed my AC and my house was back to normal that night. I would have gladly paid more than the $100 service call fee for this. Thank you AHS!
I have never had a bad experience with the service that AHS provides. When appliances failed, the speedy replacement options were superb with a no-fuss process. You will NOT go wrong with the prices, plans, and services offered by American Home Shield!
As part of our home warranty we were allowed to have several locks rekeyed. Since the previous owner left us one key to the front door and a bag of miscellaneous keys (that went with nothing) it was a huge help to have this done!
I have had American Home Shield for almost 10 years now and it is the best service as a homeowner I have! Highly recommended!
Great service for homeowners! If you have a ton of cash ready for any home system that may fail at any moment then you are good. If you are like the other 90% of homeowners who don't, then do yourself a favor and protect your investment with an AHS home warranty. Seriously, a new HVAC in California costs over $4K. I paid $100. A new stove last year was $400, but I paid $75. It's in my budget and I don't think twice. AHS always takes great care of me.
I just used AHS for the first time in February because my AC wasn’t working. It was the easiest process!!! The tech came out and had the AC up and running in under 45 minutes. My unit is not new and I’m amazed he was able to bring it back from the dead. But the best part? The ZERO dollar due invoice I received from the AC company!!!! Thank you AHS - I’ve got peace of mind regarding my home.
Great service. We've had four service requests completed for $400 total and it saved us over $2,400.
I wasn't sure if a home warranty would be a good investment. My next door neighbor has AHS and had their AC unit repaired without any issues and little out of pocket cost. With that I was sold. Since then, I've had 2 AC units repaired, an ice maker replaced, a garbage disposal replaced, and most recently a dryer repaired. All with no issues. Doing the math, having AHS is a great investment.
As a long time customer of AHS it is a pleasure to be a member. As a single homeowner I always worry about breakdowns and how I would pay for them. With AHS I don't have that anxiety. Thank you.
I used AHS for the first time and what an easy process. I booked a service appointment online, paid the $100 service fee, and the repairman fixed the problem in less than 10 minutes. Our "trusted" AC tune up guys told us our unit was leaking refrigerant and needed a new coil unit. The AHS contractor saw that a bolt was loose and after he tightened it, his meter no longer detected a leak. Thank you for sending out honest repairmen!! I'm already a huge fan.
It's a great home protection plan that helps assist with the cost when things break down. The send reliable contractors who are masters in their field of work. You can customize any plan to fit your needs.
Placed my fourth service call in last 7 years and their service people are very reputable. The contractor explained to me what caused the microwave door to break and provided lots of good tips about safety, which is very important to this 80-year-old homeowner.
