Coverage underscores the value of home service plans, especially in periods of high inflation
MEMPHIS, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Frontdoor, Inc. (NASDAQ: FTDR), the nation’s leading provider of home service plans, announced today that its flagship home service brand, American Home Shield, has paid out more than $4 billion in member claims over the period of January 2016 through September 2022.
“While this is a huge number, it also underscores our deep commitment to honoring our members’ covered claims,” said Raj Midha, senior vice president and general manager for American Home Shield. “It’s also a great reminder about the overall value of home service plans. In times like these, with very high inflation, replacing an appliance or a major investment like an air conditioner or heating system could far outpace what people pay for one of our home service plans.”
A home warranty is a one-year service contract that helps pay the repair and replacement costs when parts of covered systems and appliances stop working. It complements homeowner’s insurance by protecting things insurance doesn’t, like breakdowns caused by normal wear and tear.
“Our home service plans include exclusive member perks, like discounts on new appliances and services, including tech installation and set-up,” Midha added.
An article in MarketWatch said “American Home Shield earned its spot as our top choice due to its extensive coverage options and excellent customer service. We awarded American Home Shield 4.6 out of 5 stars in our rating system — the highest rating of the home warranty companies we researched and compared.”
An article on the website of home advice expert Bob Vila said “American Home Shield offers well-rounded home warranty policies…With extensive coverage options included in its different policy tiers—plus the option to purchase add-ons for more specialized protection—there’s a good chance homeowners will find the right coverage to meet their needs.”
