America’s Most Preferred Home Warranty Company

When selecting a home warranty, choose American Home Shield®, the founder and leader of the home warranty industry. Our goal is to make owning a home easier by helping our customers protect their budgets from large, unexpected covered repair costs. We do more than just repair and replace your covered items – let us help make your home ownership easier, too. 


If one of your home’s appliances or systems breaks down, it can mean more than your air conditioning or dryer not working — it can also mean having to cover an unexpected expense.


Instead of paying the full retail cost to repair or replace a covered item, an American Home Shield Home Warranty helps you manage the costs of unexpected covered breakdowns. And the best part, you can submit service requests online or by phone 24/7.

Know your home is covered.

For more than 45 years, our goal has remained the same — to help protect our customers’ homes, while providing convenient and excellent service.

We stand by our work.

If a repair or replacement fails within 30 days of service, we’ll send a contractor back to address it at no additional cost. That’s one of the reasons more than 1.7 million homeowners rely on us to protect their homes.
 

We have over 15,000 licensed and qualified service professionals.

We go to great lengths to ensure contractors meet our standard of quality.
 

We’re here for you.

As the nation’s largest home warranty company, we pay more service requests than any other home warranty company in the nation. That’s added up to more than $2 billion over the last 5 years.
 

What Plans Are Offered by American Home Shield?

American Home Shield offers three high-value home warranty plans to choose from when you are in a real estate transaction:

  • ShieldCompleteSM Offers the most comprehensive coverage, including the items in ShieldEssential and ShieldPlus combined, and some additional home items (like garage door openers and doorbells).
  • ShieldPlusSM Covers items included in the ShieldEssential Plan, plus many other common, major household appliances.
  • ShieldEssentialSM Covers components of the most critical home systems that are often the most expensive to repair and replace (heating*, air conditioning, plumbing and more).

*Not available in HI

Seller Coverage Option*:

Regardless of the plan selected, qualified home sellers can add the Seller Coverage Option while the home is on the market for up to 6 months (term renewable upon request and at the discretion of American Home Shield). This addition will help protect home sellers with coverage on air conditioning, heating, ductwork, plumbing, electrical systems, water heaters, and more. Best of all, no plan payment is due until the home closes.
