Ductwork Warranty Coverage

No matter the air temperature outside, the ductwork in your home is responsible for distributing air at a comfortable temperature inside. And while your ductwork may not have as many moving parts as other systems, problems can still arise. That's why we offer coverage to help take care of any breakdowns as quickly and easily as possible. Now when you discover a covered problem, you can simply call American Home Shield.

Ductwork is covered in our ShieldSilver, ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum home service plans along with other Home Systems and Appliances

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