What is a Home Warranty?

A home warranty is a (residential) service contract and an extended warranty that helps protect against the cost of repairs and replacements of the major systems and appliances in your home such as your Air Conditioner, Heating System, Refrigerator, Clothes Washer and Dryer.

How does a home warranty work?

When one of your covered appliances and systems malfunctions or breaks down, you call us and let us know about the problem or you can even request service online. We will dispatch a technician and take care of all the covered costs. Your only out of pocket cost on a covered claim is the service call fee payable to the technician.

Why do I need a home warranty?

Over time your appliances and systems wear down. Repair and replacement costs run into the hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars. In addition to the financial savings with a home warranty, what you get with a quality home warranty provider like Amazon Home Warranty, is peace of mind. You don't need to worry about finding someone to come out and fix your problem, because we will arrange the service for you. I already have homeowners insurance, do I still need a home warranty? YES! Your homeowners insurance will not cover the repair or replacement costs of your appliances and systems that just break or malfunction. Homeowners insurance typically protects your home from things like fires, theft, or natural disasters. A home warranty plan provides coverage for malfunctions and breakdowns from ordinary wear and tear.
