What is a Home Warranty?

  • An American Home Shield (AHS) home warranty is an annual service contract which protects a homeowner against the cost of unexpected covered repairs or replacement on specific systems and appliances in the home that breakdown due to normal wear and tear.

    AHS founded the home warranty industry over 32 years ago, and has continued to be the industry leader and innovator in terms of quality service and protection for homeowners. An AHS home warranty is a homeowner's best defense against costly repairs or complete replacement of existing vital household systems and appliances* breaking down from normal wear and tear.

    Sellers can enjoy protection during the listing period at no cost until they close on the sale of their home. Buyers have the security of knowing their systems and appliances are protected. Whether you are an existing homeowner, home buyer or seller, you will benefit from an American Home Shield Home Warranty.

    *Please read contract for specific coverage, limitations, and exclusions. Additional charges may apply to some repairs and replacements.
