Albuquerque is the most populous city in the state of New Mexico. With four distinct seasons, Albuquerque has a cold semi-arid climate. The climate is usually sunny and dry, averaging 278 days of sunshine a year. A varying climate means extended use of Albuquerque home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Albuquerque homes can be a 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 Albuquerque.

Summers in Albuquerque are warm and dry with the average daytime highs around 90°F. The average annual precipitation is less than half of evaporation, and no month averages below freezing. Winters are rather short, with December, the coolest month, averaging 36°F. Spring is windy, sometimes with some rain even though it is usually the driest season. March and April will see wind blowing at 20 to 30 mph, and afternoon winds can generate periods of blowing sand and dust. If your central heating system, AC unit, or electrical system experiences a mechanical failure due to normal wear and tear, having protection from an expensive repair or replacement is essential. Any delay in repair 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 in Albuquerque is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider such as American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement helps protect homeowners from the high costs of unforeseen mechanical failures of their covered appliances and home systems, and the plan provides licensed, pre-screened, pre-qualified service technicians to assess the situation. If the issue is due to normal wear and tear or a mechanical failure and it is a covered item, then the appliance or system will be repaired or replaced within the terms and conditions of the plan. For covered repairs the homeowner will only have to pay a nominal service fee.
