It’s a one-year service agreement that covers the repair or replacement of many major home system components and appliances that typically breakdown over time due to normal wear and tear.
The one thing you can be sure of is that eventually your home system components and appliances will break down. When that happens, a home protection plan may help make costs of repairing or replacing home system components or appliances more manageable, while making it easy for you to get a qualified professional to your home to fix the problem.
The leader in home warranties, AHS was founded in 1971 to help homeowners across the country protect their hard-earned investments.
Recognized with the 2013 Best in Service Award from HomeWarrantyReviews.com and the 2014 Women’s Choice Award, our customer service is well-respected, with professional agents ready 24/7 to accept your service requests.
With American Home Shield, it's easy to get service for your covered home system components and appliances. Just follow these easy steps below when a covered breakdown occurs:
Check your Agreement to verify the item is covered by your AHS Home Warranty. If it is, call our 24/7 customer service line toll-free at 800 776 4663 or visit ahs.com to place a service request.
American Home Shield will assign a service contractor to handle your covered request. If we have your email address, we will send you an email conformation verifying the request has been received by the service contractor.
A service contractor will contact you by phone to schedule a time during normal business hours to visit your home and diagnose your covered item.
When a service contractor arrives at your home, you pay a Trade Service Call Fee. This is a fee paid per service trade (plumber, electrician, etc.), and is typically less than their standard service rates.
You sensibly protect your house with homeowners insurance. While homeowners insurance covers many appliances and system components in the event of a disaster (such as a fire), having an AHS® Home Warranty will cover those items against the high costs of repair or replacement in the event a breakdown occurs.

Selling a home? Ask your agent about our Seller Coverage Option.
Qualified home sellers can add the Seller Coverage Option for up to 6 months (term renewable upon request) while their home is on the market. With the same covered items as the ShieldEssential package, this option can help protect the seller’s budget during the listing period, distinguish the property from other listings and help reduce pre-close issues related to the home inspection. Best of all, no money is due until the home closes.
