Why get a home warranty?

Home appliance and system breakdowns are bound to happen – and repairs can cost you. A home warranty helps protect your appliances and systems from unexpected breakdowns due to normal wear and tear.

 

A home warranty is different from homeowners insurance. Insurance only covers damages from specific events like fire, hail, or theft. If something breaks down, insurance leaves you on your own.

Take the stress out of owning a home

It’s hard to predict when something will fail and how much it will cost to fix. APHW helps ensure you’re ready for the unexpected.

What Our Customers Say

APHW had three different options on how to make a payment, and my customer service rep looked for every reason TO approve the claim, as opposed to every reason not to. The whole process was really easy.


Kal Savoie - Louisiana

We had 3 different plumbing issues last year, and every time I called it was super easy to make a claim,” Megan said. “Every person I talked to was really understanding about things, and my reimbursements always came within 5 to 7 business days—so I was just really happy with how things worked out.”


Megan Hunter - Michigan

I would recommend APHW to others for sure. The process was really easy, and I feel confident that they’ll take good care of me if there are any other problems in the future.


Allan Howard - Indiana

I honestly have never worked with a third party that has been so responsive and so helpful. Just the fact that APHW answers phones around the clock—and each time I’ve called in they’ve all been extremely polite and helpful. It’s just great! And once the work is completed, they pay my contractor and it’s done. It’s that simple!”
