With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Baltimore, Maryland 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 Baltimore. The climate in Baltimore is mild, and generally warm and temperate. Baltimore is located within the humid subtropical climate zone (Cfa) and has four distinct seasons.

Baltimore’s coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 24°F. In July, the warmest month, the average day time temperature rises to 87°F. There is significant rainfall throughout the year in Baltimore. Even the driest month still has a lot of rainfall. The driest month in Baltimore is April with 3 inches of precipitation and with 4 inches September is the wettest month.

Temperature changes with the change in seasons and humidity 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 in Baltimore is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, 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.
