If you’re new to home ownership, you might be asking yourself, “what exactly is a home warranty?”
Home warranties provide a service to repair or replace mechanical appliances and home systems when they malfunction. When you need repairs, AFC sends a licensed service technician to your home and foots the bill for any qualified expenses—you just pay a small service fee for covered issues.
Once the repair or replacement is complete, AFC guarantees it for the remainder of your coverage period—that’s up to three years! No other warranty company or service provider offers such a guarantee.
A warranty helps you control and protect your budget, and AFC allows you to control who comes into your home for repairs. Without a warranty, many homeowners have trouble finding reliable contractors, and may settle for a less expensive (and less skilled) technician. They may have to pay exorbitant rates for repairs.
But the biggest issue when it comes to home repairs is that homeowners have not budgeted for the expense. Since the service is paid for in regular installments, a home warranty solves that problem.
Everything mechanical breaks down eventually, your appliances and systems included. But California’s weather puts extra strain on furnaces and air conditioners. With climates trends indicating more extreme temperatures in the coming years, your home’s systems will be pushed to the limit.
The hot summer months put the air conditioner to work, and each successive year leads to wear and tear on the unit. During the colder months, the heating and water heater are working overtime, accumulating similar wear and tear.
The air conditioning is more likely to break down on a hot summer day, which makes it more likely that a good contractor will be hard to find, and may even charge higher seasonal rates for repairs. Homeowners may have to wait a long time for repairs during peak seasons.
AFC streamlines and expedites the process while largely taking cost out of the equation. The result is less sweat, less stress, and less cost. And we cover plenty of other items in your home.
Central air conditioning is a booming industry in California, with demand often outstripping supply and availability. This leads to a situation where finding a reliable repair company can be difficult and expensive.
Increased demand for technicians also means rates for repairs will steadily increase. An AFC membership guarantees your rate for coverage for at least five years, protecting you from rising repair costs.
Instead of bargain hunting to find the best deal or stressing over online reviews of repair companies, you can just call AFC. We’ll send someone from our network or professionals (or you can choose your own if you like) and we pay them directly for covered repairs.

With any service contract such as a home warranty, customers pay a service fee each time they make a service request. The service fee, sometimes called a deductible or service call fee, is paid directly to the technician when they come to your home.
The amount of this fee is set when you purchase your home warranty. AFC offers homeowners several options for service fee: $75, $100, $125. The amount of the affects the overall price of the plan, allowing customers to find a coverage option that works with their budget.
When someone is purchasing a new home, there are so many unknowns—the schools, the neighborhood, the structure itself—that it’s easy for a new homeowner to be overwhelmed by the decision.
Real estate professionals, home sellers, and buyers can use a home warranty to take away some of those unknown factors. A service contract from AFC reduces the perils faced by the new homeowner.
When a covered item breaks, the buyer has a service provider in AFC—we will fix the issue without blowing their budget at such a crucial time.
AFC’s coverage increases confidence in the purchase for everyone involved.
The difference between homeowner insurance and AFC’s coverage is subtle, but important. Home insurance protects against damage from events like weather and fire, while AFC protects against everyday mechanical breakdown.
Likewise, our coverage is different from the manufacturer’s warranty on a given item, because it covers more than that item and can be renewed year after year.
