Lexington, also known as Lexington-Fayette, is the second-largest city in the state of Kentucky. Lexington is located in the northern periphery of the humid subtropical climate zone with hot, humid summers and cool winters with occasional mild periods. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Lexington home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit and central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in 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 Lexington.

Lexington and the surrounding region have four distinct seasons that include cool plateau breezes, moderate summer nights, and no prolonged periods of heat, cold, rain, wind, or snow. The monthly daily average temperature ranges from 33°F in January to 76°F in July, while the annual mean temperature is 56°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 in Lexington 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.
