With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Little Rock, Arkansas, homes can be at risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns. For this reason, it is recommended that all homeowners sign up for home service agreements in Little Rock. Little Rock has a humid subtropical climate, with hot, usually humid summers, but subject to drought, mainly in late summer.

Summers are usually hot in Little Rock, occasionally extremely hot; winters are short and cool, but with marked temperature variations. The driest month is August with 3 inches of precipitation and with 6 inches in November, it’s the wettest month. The area has nearly 50 inches of precipitation per year, on average.

A hot and dry climate and temperature changes with the change in season means extended use of home systems like the central A/C unit, electrical system, and central heating system. If one of these systems experience a mechanical failure due to normal wear and tear, having protection from an expensive repair or replacement is essential because a delay can make living conditions in the home very uncomfortable for everyone, and even unsafe.

One of the best ways to protect home appliances and systems is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Little Rock residents, from a trusted home service agreement provider such as American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement provides protection against unexpected repair costs for your covered appliances and systems that would NOT normally be covered under homeowner’s insurance. Homeowner’s insurance usually just protects you against losses due to natural disasters, theft or vandalism, but would NOT normally cover costs to repair appliances or systems when they break down due to normal wear and tear.

We also provide immediate service for emergency issues and we will respond to a request for service within 24-48 hours. American Residential Warranty customers can select their own service providers or use a technician from ARW’s larger network of licensed, pre-screened and pre-qualified service professionals. By having such a home service agreement, it will ensure that when a problem arises due to normal wear and tear on a covered system or appliance, it can be properly and quickly resolved without causing financial distress.
