Coverage - 8 / 10

American Home Guard offers straightforward, transparent coverage plans for systems, appliances, or both. They also extend optional coverage for such items as pools or spas, sprinkler systems, roof leaks, well pumps, and septic tanks. AHG has a per-item benefit limit of $500 for heating and cooling equipment for the first three months of coverage, which increases to $2,000 after that initial period. Similarly, their benefit limit per appliances, plumbing, and electrical starts out at $150 and increases to $500 after the first three months. Although coverage amounts are limited during the initial coverage period, their repair and replacement allowance is quite generous when compared to that of similar providers, making them an excellent option for homeowners looking to get the most out of their dollar.

American Home Guard is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau or is a member of the NHSCA. On January of 2017, the BBB identified a pattern of complaints against business and requested information from them regarding the matter. Although AHG responded to the BBB's request, they failed to address the underlying problems causing discontent among their customers and were given the lowest possible rating. In spite of everything, American Home Guard maintains a high Trustpilot score and enjoys many more positive reviews than negative ones on the Better Business Bureau website.

I purchased a home warranty after hearing about my friend talked about american home guard covering his fridge. I didn't want to have to stress about that after I just bought a new one. So I signed up to american home guard and have placed a few claims already and they all have went smoothly with no cost for the parts. Thank you for giving me one less thing to worry about.

When my heating system broke down it was very stressful as I anticipated a long wait as it was my first claim which I have dealt with in the past. However much to my surprise shortly after getting off the phone with ahg they sent me an email of the contractor and his info so I could make an appointment. The process was quick and easy, thank you ahg!!!

The service technician was on time and very personable. He was very detailed in explaining what work needed to done and how long it should take. After the work was complete, he walked me through everything he did. He also ran the dishwasher to show me that it was working and the job was completed.
