FAQs

Since 1971 we have provided comprehensive home warranty plans for American consumers, being the first of the many home warranty companies that have imitated us ever since. Our promise is simple: the peace of mind and convenience that homeowners expect the market leader. A fixed trade call fee, a single number to call when things go wrong, expert customer service representatives, a comprehensive yearly service contract, and a reasonable home warranty cost.

Both ends of a real estate transaction can benefit from being home warranty customers: for the seller, a home warranty can increase the confidence of prospective buyers and increase the price of the property or make the sale easier. For the buyer, it ensures that the repair or replacement of appliances and potentially expensive repairs of home systems are covered by a service provider.

We use licensed, independent, trusted contractors from our nationwide network, and they're regularly evaluated by customers like you to make sure they're meeting our standards and providing excellent service.

No. You can purchase a home warranty from American Home Shield without an inspection or maintenance records.

Yes, click on the following link to review our home warranty contract. AHS Sample Contract.

Yes. We don't care how old your home, systems, or appliances are - our home warranty protection will cover them.

Once your coverage begins (30 days after you purchase your new home warranty plan) you can request service 24/7 online or call 1-888-691-2854 during standard business hours to request service. 

Legally, companies offer a home warranty service, not “home warranty insurance”. With that said, if you’re looking for a service that covers the systems and appliances in your home when something breaks down, chances are you’re not looking for a home warranty insurance, but for home warranty, which we do offer.

If you’re looking for “appliance insurance” or “home appliance insurance”, chances are you’re also looking for a home warranty.
