What is a home warranty?

From dishwashers and refrigerators to washers and dryers, a home warranty is an annual contract that covers repair or replacement services for the major appliances and systems in your home.


Home warranties are also known as home protection plans, which offer you home protection from costly surprises with affordable monthly payments.

Home warranty FAQ:

Why would I want a home warranty vs. an extended warranty or a manufacturer's warranty?

A home warranty provides much more than extended warranties or manufacturers' warranties. Rather than coverage for just one item for a limited time, a home warranty offers coverage for many items under the same plan, and you can renew your coverage year after year. Home warranties also cover both parts and labor, and the Goodman Home Warranty comes with a 180-day workmanship guarantee. In addition, you get coverage for rust and corrosion as well as unknown pre-existing conditions.

My home's systems and appliances are old. Does it matter?

No, it does not. You can get a Goodman Home Warranty no matter how old your home's systems or appliances are as long as they are in good working order when your coverage begins.

What is NOT covered?

Other non-mechanical items in your home, like the roof, windows, walls and doors, are typically not included in protection plan coverage. Also, if a covered item was improperly installed or repaired, your plan will likely not cover it. It's important to read the details included in the General Exclusions and Limitations section of the terms and conditions.

When does coverage begin?

There is a waiting period from the time you purchase your plan to when you can request service. You’ll be advised exactly when your coverage begins before you complete your purchase. In addition, your confirmation email and plan documents will include this information.

We guarantee our work for six months — at no additional cost to you.
