Jackson, officially the City of Jackson, is the capital city and largest urban center of the state of Mississippi. Jackson is located in the humid subtropical climate zone. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Jackson home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Jackson 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 Jackson.

The weather in Jackson is warm and humid in summer, and fairly mild in winter. Summer temperatures average between 68°F and 90°F, while winter temperatures average between 35°F and 60°F. Rainfall is fairly high, and can occur at any time of year. The mean annual precipitation is about 51 inches. Much of Jackson's rainfall occurs during thunderstorms. The city lies in a region prone to severe thunderstorms which can produce large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes. Warm and dry weather and the humidity means extra wear and tear on home appliances and systems. If your central heating system, 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 Jackson 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, 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.
