What is American Home Shield?

American Home Shield also known as AHS is an home warranty cover plan that caters for repairs and replacements of items in the home. It gives the home owners a chance to choose the items that they wish to cover. You may also choose to use their designed plans where you choose 10 items in the appliances and system components categories for cover. In case there is a fault in any of the covered items, American Home Shield will provide free repairs or replacement; whichever is applicable.

Flexible and personalized plan of items to cover

American Home Shield gives you an avenue in which you can insure your home items. As a home owner, you are well aware of the things in your home that are more prone to wear and tear. You are thus in a very good position to gauge the items that may break down more easily. With this knowledge, you can personalize a list of these items and quote them as the subjects for cover. When any of these items suffer a fault, American Home Shield will incur the cost of repairs and/ or replacements. All you will part with is the minimal visit charge.

Combo plan

If you choose to use an already laid down module, American Home Shield has one known as the combo plan. Here, you choose ten appliances to be covered. The list of appliances is as follows: refrigerators, dishwashers, clothes washers and driers, built-in-microwave ovens, free- standing ice makers, garage door openers, built-in-food processors, trash compactors, ovens and cook-tops. This plan will cover the items that you choose on the list. You may incur additional charges if you need repair and replacement of items that are not in your list. The key is to nominate the appliances wisely.

Systems plan

This cover caters for the repair and replacement of system components in your home. Just as in the combo plan, you get to choose ten items from this list with additional charges for any extra items. Air conditioning, Plumbing heating, Electrical, Garbage disposals, Water dispensers, Smoke detectors, Door bells, Central vacuum, ceiling fans and Water heaters.

For items that are not covered in the combo plan and in the systems plan, you can still request coverage at a fee. This gives you warranty of items such as the swimming pool, water softener, spa, the septic pumping and the well pump.

Free Quote

When you visit their website, you can choose to get a free quotation of what you need to pay for this warranty. American Home Shield will give you a national average estimate of repairs and replacements so that you can decide whether to contract them or not.

Prompt Service

When you need the service of American Home Shield, you are supposed to notify them through their website. You log in with your customer name and enter your particulars pertaining what needs their attention. They will then contact service providers in your locality and dispatch them to your home as quickly as possible. Depending on the reliability of these service providers, you may receive service in minutes of alerting them or it may take a few hours. For each visit that the technicians make to your place, you have to pay a deductible (price depends on your plan). This is regardless of how long it takes them to fix your item.

    My refrigerator failed to function properly as there was a fault with one of the compartments. Luckily I had insured it with this company. I informed them of the situation. To my surprise, they were there within some few hours with their qualified technicians. They assured me that my refrigerator will be back to normal in no time. Well, to my surprise again, that’s exactly what happened. I couldn’t ask for more. They are the best.

    My electric furnace and refrigerator went out within’ 2 months of each other and AHS came to the rescue. My husband and I calculated how much we saved and it’s easily in the $10,000 range including the furnace installation, etc. — Their phone service was quick to get replacements out and serviced technicians to install and make sure everything is working as intended. Couldn’t be happier!

    I got AHS a little less than 2 months ago and suddenly my dryer dies. I call up AHS and it’s serviced within 2 days. Considering how low my quote was, I saved nearly $400! I couldn’t imagine something like a furnace dying and not having a warranty, talk about bankrupt…

    We have had AHS for over 5 years on 2 homes. They are great to deal with. The only reason I didn’t give them a 10 is because they do frequently take a long time to get the service call out to you but that may be the contractor vs. AHS. They either get it right or come back and fix it if it’s not right or breaks down again quickly. They have always fixed everything even if it’s eventually. )Time to get out their, ordering parts, busted parts etc.)They did add on a surcharge for the AC freon this year that ended up costing us an additional $225 however i still think they are well worth the money.

    My oven and cooktop had to be either fixed or replaced and AHS did exactly what they promised. Also, they use reliable contractors for installation and delivery. I highly recommend them. Just be patient, they do their research.

    I had AHS, went to First American. Their contractors are more responsive and are better. I was with out heat one winter, because AHS contractor hadn’t had a clue. Luckly, it was a mild winter. Response time was in several days, comapred to First Americans one. I live in King George, Va. First American also pays more for freon. They are also cheaper.
