Indianapolis is the capital and largest city of the state of Indiana. The City resides in the humid continental climate zone and experiences four distinct seasons. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Indianapolis home systems and appliances like the AC unit and electric system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Indianapolis homes can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns.

Indianapolis’s coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 18°F. In July, the warmest month, the average daytime temperature rises to 85°F. The driest month is February and July is the wettest month. The relative humidity typically ranges from 43% (comfortable) to 98% (very humid) over the course of the year, rarely dropping below 29% and reaching as high as 100%. If your central heating system, AC 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 Indianapolis is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, American Residential Warranty.
