Lubbock is a city in the state of Texas with a mild, semi-arid climate. A hot and dry climate means extended use of Lubbock home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in homes can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns. For this reason, it’s recommended that all homeowners sign up for home service agreements in Lubbock.

In 2013, Lubbock was named the "Toughest Weather City" in America according to the Weather Channel. Summers are hot, with on average 78 days of 90°F highs and 7 days of 100°F+ highs. Although due to the aridity and elevation temperatures remain above 70°F for only a few nights. On average, Lubbock receives only 18 inches of rain per year. A semi-arid 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 Lubbock 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.
