Homes in Miami, Florida with long term use of home appliances and systems can be a risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns. Miami has a true tropical climate, with hot, humid summers. Miami’s coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 59°F. In July, the warmest month, the average daytime temperature rises to 91°F. The driest month is January and August is the wettest month.

High temperatures and high humidity means extended use of home systems like the AC unit and electric system. More than a quarter (27%) of the energy consumed in Florida homes is for air conditioning, which is more than four times the national average. Half of energy consumed by Florida households is for appliances, electronics, and lighting. 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.
