About Home Warranty, Provided by AHS:
A home warranty is a service contract that covers the repair or replacement of important home system components and appliances that break down due to normal wear and tear over time. To quote, you only need five rating variables: state, home size, home type, service fee and additional add-ons.

A customer may add on optional coverages for an additional fee.
