Situated on the Ohio River along the Indiana border, Louisville is the largest city in the state of Kentucky. Louisville has a humid climate with hot summers and no dry season. A hot and humid climate and change in temperatures with the change in season means extended use of Louisville home systems and appliances like the AC unit, central heating, and electric system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Louisville homes can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns.

Louisville’s coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 24°F. In July, the warmest month, the average daytime temperature rises to 87°F. The driest month is October and May is the wettest month. The relative humidity typically ranges from 41% (comfortable) to 94% (very humid) throughout the year, rarely dropping below 25% (dry) and reaching as high as 100% (very humid). 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 Louisville is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, American Residential Warranty.
