ShieldSilver covers 14 of your home’s major critical systems including Heating and Cooling, Electrical, and Plumbing. Shield Silver does not cover your appliances or roof leak repairs.
If you aren’t interested in upgrading plans to ShieldGold or ShieldPlatinum, some coverages like Roof Leak Repair are available as add-ons to the SheildSilver plan.
To explore the difference between ShieldSilver, ShieldGold and ShieldPlatinum, see our Plan Comparison page.
AHS does not require you to pay annual fees upfront and does not have additional fees for you to pay monthly. We keep your home up and running, and your budget on track !
With the ShieldSilver plan, there is no total cap you can hit in your contract, and we never limit the number of service requests you can make !
Most systems (like your AC/Heat, plumbing or electrical items) have no maximum coverage limit with our contracts.
Some exceptions to know about when you comparison shop
● For geothermal, water source or glycol AC and Heat systems, your coverage cap is $1,500.
● If plumbing or ductwork is only accessible through concrete we cover up to $1,000 each (one cap for plumbing, and one cap for ductwork) for that work (including access and returning the space to a rough finish when we’re done).
● AC Refrigerant is covered up to $10/lb. So for example – if you needed 5 lbs of refrigerant that cost $60/lb, the total cost will be $300. AHS will pay $50, and you cover the remainder. If you’re interested in unlimited refrigerant coverage, check out our ShieldPlatinum plan.
● Coverage is not included for additional modifications, corrections of code violations, or permits needed for covered repairs. If you’re interested in modification or permit coverage, check out our ShieldPlatinum plan.
We communicate throughout your service request to keep you updated on coverage decisions before work is completed. For work completed that exceeds your coverage, you pay AHS the remainder.
You get a say if you don’t want us to complete the repair if it isn’t covered - you don’t have to track multiple bills from contractors – we handle it for you

ShieldSilver prices vary depending on your states and property type – coverage for a four-plex is more than for a single family home for example – so you know you’re getting the best deal for your needs. That’s why we need your address to show accurate prices. ShieldGold is always priced $10 above ShieldSilver plan – bringing you value with all 9 kitchen and laundry appliances covered.
You can pick your price for ShieldSilver by customizing your Service Fee, $75, $100, or $125. Paying more for each service request lowers your monthly contract cost or with a higher monthly contract price, you can pay less for each service.
