Named for explorer Christopher Columbus, the city of Columbus is the capital and largest city of the state of Ohio. With four seasons, Columbus experiences a variety of weather every year altering the climate of the city. The City has a humid continental climate with hot summers and no dry season. From time to time, tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, blizzards, and winter storms occur. A hot and humid climate and the change in temperatures with the change in season means extended use of Columbus home systems and appliances like the AC unit, central heating, and electric system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Columbus homes can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns.

The coldest month in Columbus is January when the average temperature overnight is 20°F. In July, the warmest month, the average daytime temperature rises to 85°F. The driest month is February and July is the wettest month. 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 Columbus is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement helps protect the homeowner from high costs of unforeseen mechanical failures (applies to their covered appliances and home systems).
