With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Corpus Christi, Texas, 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 Corpus Christi. The climate is humid subtropical, with hot summers and very short, mild winters.

In 2013, Lubbock was named the "Toughest Weather City" in America according to the Weather Channel. Summers are hot, with on average 78 days of 90°F highs and 7 days of 100°F+ highs. Although due to the aridity and elevation temperatures remain above 70°F for only a few nights. On average, Lubbock receives only 18 inches of rain per year. A semi-arid 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Corpus Christi residents, from a trusted home service agreement provider such as 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.
