Arlington is a principal city in the state of Texas, located in a humid subtropical climate zone characterized by hot, humid summers and mild to cool winters. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Arlington home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electric system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Arlington 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 Arlington.

The summers in Arlington are hot and muggy, while the winters are cold and windy. On average, there are 235 sunny days per year. The July high is around 95° while the January low is 35°F. Located in the famous Tornado Alley, severe weather generally occurs during April and May. Winters are typically mild with snow seldom falling. A hot and muggy climate means extra wear and tear on home appliances and systems. If your central heating system, central A/C unit, or electrical system experiences 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 in Arlington 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, prequalified service technicians to assess the situation. If the issue is due to normal wear and tear or 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 of $55 in most cases.
