A home service agreement typically covers mechanical failures or breakdowns due to normal wear and tear of your home appliances or major systems (heat/air conditioning, plumbing, electric, kitchen appliances, etc.) depending upon the plan and options you choose. If something covered by the plan stops working or breaks down, then it will be repaired or replaced in accordance with the terms, conditions and coverage limits of the contract.
When you purchase a home plan from American Residential Warranty, you are entitled to certain protections as part of the plan. If one of your covered appliances or systems breaks down, you can either submit a request online or call us. Our representatives are ready to assist you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. A representative will validate your coverage and dispatch your claim to a service provider they will contact you directly to schedule an appointment that works best with your schedule. For all covered repairs, a small service fee of $55 will be due per breakdown, unless otherwise noted in the terms & conditions.
The US Census Bureau estimates that between 2.5 and 3.0 million residential furnaces and air conditioners fail each year. Some of these units have operated in the homes for years while others break down within days or months after installation. Most dealers will cover both parts and labor ONLY for the first year following installation. When you have a home protection plan that includes central air conditioning coverage, you will have coverage for as long as you continue making payments for your plan.
When you have a home plan from American Residential Warranty that includes your central air conditioning, you will have peace of mind knowing that you have protected your home comfort investment.
