Chesapeake is a city located in the state of Virginia. Chesapeake’s climate is characterized by relatively high temperatures and evenly distributed precipitation throughout the year. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, the city has a humid subtropical climate. The area experiences four distinct seasons. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Chesapeake home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems 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 Chesapeake.

Chesapeake gets 47 inches of rain per year. On average, there are 211 sunny days per year. The July high is around 89°F and the January low is 32°F. 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 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 Chesapeake 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.
