Choose from different plans and flexible pricing to find the plan that works best for you. Our Home Warranty costs start at $39.99 per month.
The price of a home warranty depends on a few factors, such as the level of coverage and add-ons you need for your home, the size of your home, and the trade service fee you select. At American Home Shield, a basic plan begins with an affordable price as low as $39.99 per month.
We have 3 plans with multiple add-ons so you can customize your plan depending on your and your family's needs. From a basic plan to our more comprehensive coverage options, our mission is to cater to everyone.
For example, having an add-on that covers the electronics in your house might be especially relevant if you're currently working from home, but you would not need protection for pools and spas if you don't have one. We offer the flexibility to create your own plan so it fits your unique needs and budget.
The standard home warranty service contract for most home warranty companies is one year.
You can start requesting service 30 days after you buy your warranty. If you purchased or were given a home warranty during a real estate transaction, your coverage starts from the day of closing.
Our home warranty plans are tailored so you can cover the home systems and appliances that match your needs. All standard plans cover normal wear and tear, major repairs, and replacements of covered appliances and systems. For that extra level of protection, our ShieldPlatinum plan covers additional systems and appliances while also allowing you to save money on your trade service call fee.
Home warranties are generally not tax-deductible unless they are used for business purposes. We recommend you speak to a tax professional if a home warranty provider is something you wish to deduct from your personal tax declaration.
Everyone's home is filled with different things that they use with different degrees of frequency. As a leading home warranty company, it is in our best interests to offer our customers customizable coverage according to what they need it for the most. From major appliances and major home systems, our home warranty covers a broad range of indoor and outdoor items. Some of the common systems and appliances that we cover in our plans include:
Major appliances like built-in microwaves, ovens, refrigerators, dishwashers, garbage disposals, instant hot/cold water dispensers, washers, and dryers.
Major home systems like ceiling fans, air conditioning, doorbells and chimes, garage door openers, your electrical system, and interior plumbing lines.
Additional coverage for some personal belongings like electronics, pools, inground spas, guest units, septic pumps, and well pumps.
