And your coverage includes $4,000 per covered appliance per agreement term. We also cover multiples of each item – like that extra fridge or double oven, and we don’t care how old your appliances are – they’re covered.

For full appliance coverage details see our sample contract.

Yes, for covered breakdowns, AHS will repair or replace the covered appliance subject to the limitations and exclusions in your plan agreement. We’ll even haul away your old defective unit. AHS has the sole right to determine, according to the terms of your contract, whether a covered item will be repaired or replaced.
