Home Warranty Plans & Coverage


Enjoy the great indoors in comfort

You may not notice them, but ducts do a big job distributing the heating and cooling systems in your house, so you stay comfy inside no matter the temps outside. All 3 American Home Shield® real estate home warranty plans include ductwork coverage for this all-important but often overlooked home system.

The covered item limit is $15,000. If the covered item can only be accessed through a concrete (including cinder block) wall, floor, or ceiling, we will provide coverage for access to the covered item and return such access opening to a rough finish, including any rerouting, up to $1,000.
