Las Vegas Home Warranty Plans Can Be Customized!

Partnering with Las Vegas real estate agents to deliver the service and products that home buyers and sellers want, American Home Shield® developed the FlexPlan®, an innovative product that provides an unprecedented level of coverage and price options. Homeowners can customize the plan to fit their specific coverage needs and budget requirements, choosing from a wide range of packages and options. The AHS Home Warranty FlexPlan also offers coverage for items and services never before available in the industry.

Homeowners can choose coverage starting with the Core Coverage Plan®, the basic coverage that every AHS customer receives. This plan provides repair or replacement of many frequently occurring breakdowns associated with heating and air conditioning systems, duct work, plumbing and whirlpool motors and pumps, plumbing stoppages, electrical systems, water heaters, built-in microwaves, dishwashers, garbage disposals, ranges, ovens and cook tops, exhaust, vents, and attic fans and trash compactors. The Core Coverage Plan also includes new coverages such as 13 SEER, rust, corrosion or sediment and insufficiently maintained equipment.

Beyond the Core Coverage Plan, purchasers of Las Vegas homes may decide to customize their coverage with one or more of the ServicePlus Package® and CoveragePlus Package®. The ServicePlus Package was created for customers who wish to add a level of service coverage and includes repair or replacements associated with mismatched systems, undetectable pre-existing conditions, code violations, permits, removal of defective equipment, refrigerant recapture, reclaim and disposal and improper installations, repairs or modifications.

The CoveragePlus Package was designed as an option for AHS customers who desire enhanced coverage on previously uncovered items like garage door openers, doorbells, ceiling fans, telephone wiring, central vacuums, smoke detectors, food processors, and instant hot and cold water dispensers. This option also extends coverage on breakdowns associated with plumbing (faucets, showerheads and toilets) heating and air conditioning (geothermal and/or water source heat pump units, registers, grills and heat lamps), built-in microwaves (door glass and racks), ranges, ovens, and cook tops (rotisseries, racks, handles, knobs and dials) and trash compactors (removable buckets).

For a warranty specifically tailored to additional needs, customers may choose from the impressive list of additional FlexPlan options, including coverage for breakdowns associated with septic system pumping and septic sewage ejector pumps, swimming pool or spa equipment, kitchen refrigerator with ice maker and water dispenser, second refrigerator with ice maker, washer and dryer, free standing ice maker, water softener and well pump.

This gamut of options through the FlexPlan is available only through real estate transactions.
About two weeks after closing, each participating homeowner receives a contract package with contact information, wallet reference cards, specific coverages and exclusions, system and appliance maintenance tips and much more. Homeowners will also receive periodic customer relationship mailings and e-mails containing valuable home and maintenance information.

Since 1971, AHS has focused on providing the most innovative products and best customer service delivery in the business. The FlexPlan is another example of the company’s commitment of partnering with real estate professionals to serve home buyers and sellers with excellence. Designed in direct response to feedback from customers and the real estate community, the FlexPlan can help agents market properties and increase client satisfaction. And don't forget, you can also purchase warranties for Las Vegas new homes as well as resales. Many sellers offer home warranties through the Las Vegas MLS listing service.
