Greensboro, located in the state of North Carolina has a humid subtropical climate with four distinct seasons. A varying climate means extended use of Greensboro home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Greensboro 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 Greensboro.

On average, there are 75 nights per year that drop to or below freezing.

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, prequalified 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.
