Does homeowners insurance cover air conditioner replacement?

If your air conditioner is damaged or destroyed due to a covered peril, such as lightning or a windstorm, your homeowners insurance policy may pay to repair or replace the unit, up to your coverage limit and minus your homeowners insurance deductible. Your policy won’t cover damage due to wear and tear—although a home warranty plan may. Learn more about the difference between a home warranty vs. homeowners insurance.
