Our Coverage
HVAC and Air Conditioner Warranty

Air Conditioning Warranty Coverage

Your air conditioner is an important system in your home, especially when outside temperatures rise. Even though air conditioners typically last 10 to 15 years, malfunctions can happen at any time. Having the right coverage makes it a lot easier to keep your HVAC system up and running. That's where we come in. Now when you discover a covered problem, you can simply call American Home Shield.

Air conditioners are covered in our ShieldSilver, ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum plans, along with other Home Systems and Appliances.

*American Home Shield air conditioning home warranty will cover up to $1,000 should the contractor need to cut through concrete to access any HVAC system components. Geothermal A/C systems also have a coverage limit of $1,500.
