With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Fresno, California, 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 Fresno. The climate in Fresno is known as a local steppe climate. During the year, there is little rainfall in the city. Fresno is marked by a semi-arid climate with mild, moist winters and very hot and dry summers.

Fresno gets 12 inches of rain per year. The coldest month is December when the average overnight temperature is 37°F. In July, the warmest month, the average day time temperature rises to 97°F. In July and August, there are only three or four days where the high does not reach 90°F. The relative humidity typically ranges from 20% (dry) to 95% (very humid) over the course of the year, rarely dropping below 12% (very dry) and reaching as high as 100% (very humid).

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 covered 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Fresno residents, from trusted home service agreement 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.

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.
