Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort city renowned for its nightlife, 24-hour casinos and other exciting entertainment. Las Vegas has a subtropical hot desert climate, typical of the Mojave Desert in which it lies. The city has long, hot summers, short winters that are mild to chilly, and warm transitional seasons. A hot and dry climate means extended use of Las Vegas home systems and appliances like the AC unit and electric system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Las Vegas homes can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns.

On average, there are 294 sunny days per year in Las Vegas, Nevada. July is the hottest month with an average temperature of 92°F and the coldest month is December at 46°F. The wettest month is August with an average of half an inch of rain. Air conditioning is vital to living in Las Vegas, particularly when the temperature reaches 115°F. 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 Las Vegas is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement helps protect the homeowner from high costs of unforeseen mechanical failures (applies to their covered appliances and home systems).

Home & Lifestyle in Las Vegas

Billed as the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas is evolving into a popular family and retirement city. Las Vegas is the 31st most populous city in the state of Nevada. In 2016, the city had an estimated population of over 600,000 residents.

The main drivers of the Las Vegas economy are tourism, gaming and conventions. Las Vegas annually ranks as one of the world’s most visited tourist destinations. The City is one of the top destinations in the United States for business conventions and a global leader in the hospitality industry, claiming more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any city in the world. The center of the gambling and entertainment industry is located on the Las Vegas Strip, outside the city limits in the surrounding unincorporated communities of Paradise and Winchester in Clark County. The Strip, just over 4 miles long is home to themed hotels with elaborate displays such as fountains synchronized to music as well as replicas of an Egyptian pyramid, the Venetian Grand Canal, and the Eiffel Tower. The largest and most notable casinos and buildings are located there. In addition, Las Vegas’ tolerance for many forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of ‘Sin City’.

Although the major attractions in Las Vegas are the casinos and the hotels, in recent years other new attractions have begun to emerge. Las Vegas offers many museums, including the Neon Museum, The Mob Museum, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum, the DISCOVERY Children’s Museum, the Nevada State Museum and the Old Las Vegas Mormon State Historic Park. The City is home to a Downtown Arts District, which hosts numerous galleries and events including the annual Las Vegas Film Festival. “First Friday” is a monthly celebration that includes arts, music, special presentations and food in a section of the city’s downtown region called 18b, The Las Vegas Arts District.

McCarran International Airport handles international and domestic flights into the Las Vegas Valley. The airport also serves private aircraft and freight/cargo flights. Most general aviation traffic uses the smaller North Las Vegas Airport and Henderson Executive Airport. The Union Pacific Railroad is the only Class I railroad providing rail freight service to the city.

Casinos in Las Vegas consume the most power. Casinos constantly add more gaming machines, and their expansions increase the need for power even more. Apart from the hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, industries and residential households also play a substantial role in power consumption. About 90% of the energy Nevada consumes comes from outside the state. Nevada generated 73% of its electricity from natural gas in 2015.

Nevada’s Energy Portfolio Standard requires that 25% of electricity sales come from renewable energy resources by 2025; in 2015, 20% of net electricity generation came from geothermal, solar, wind, biomass, and hydroelectric power sources. In 2016, Las Vegas announced it has reached its goal of powering the city government entirely with renewable energy, meeting a goal the city has been working toward for nearly a decade.
