With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Jersey City, New Jersey, 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 Jersey City.

The climate in the Jersey City area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. This climate is characterized by fairly high temperatures and evenly distributed precipitation throughout the year. The average temperature for the year in Jersey City is 53°F. The warmest month, on average, is July with an average temperature of 75°F. A humid subtropical climate 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Jersey City 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.

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.
