Denver, The Mile High City, is the capital of Colorado. The city is an American metropolis dating back to the Old West era. Denver lies within a semi-arid, continental climate zone and has four distinct seasons. Temperature variations that come with the change in season means extended use of Denver home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Denver 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 Denver.

In summer, Denver enjoys low relative humidity, making for sunny days and cool, comfortable evenings. The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 86°F. The mild weather is due in part to the city's altitude: 5,280 feet above sea level, or exactly a mile high. Winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45°F and days reaching 60°F is not uncommon. As well, snow does not remain on the ground for long. If your central heating, 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 Denver 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 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.
