With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Greenville, South Carolina, 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 Greenville.

Greenville summers are hot and humid, with a daily temperature average in July of 80°F. In 2015, South Carolina was eighth in the nation in per capita retail electricity sales, in part because of high air conditioning demand during the hot summer months and the widespread use of electricity for home heating in winter. There is an average of 43 days per year with highs at or above 90°F. Greenville is part of USDA Hardiness zone 7b/8a. Winters are short and generally cool, with a January daily average of 42°F. On average, there are 59 nights per year that fall to or below freezing. April is the driest month, with an average of 3 inches of precipitation.

Temperature changes with the change in seasons and high humidity means extended use of home systems like the central A/C unit, electrical system, and central heating system. If one of these 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 Greenville 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.

Customers with American Residential Warranty Home Service Agreements in Greenville receive excellent customer service, available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. We also provide immediate service for emergency issues and we will respond to a request for service within 24-48 hours. American Residential Warranty customers can select their own service providers or use a technician from ARW’s larger network of licensed, pre-screened and pre-qualified service professionals. 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.
