With long-term use of home appliances and systems in Milwaukee, 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 Milwaukee. Milwaukee has a continental climate with wide variations in temperatures over short periods, especially in spring and autumn. The city’s climate is also strongly influenced by nearby Lake Michigan, which creates two varying climates within the Milwaukee area. The Urban heat island effect also plays a role in the city’s climate, insulating it from winter cold, but keeping it cooler in spring and summer.

The warmest month in Milwaukee is July, when the average high temperature is 81°F and the overnight low is 63°F. The coldest month is January, when the average high temperature is 28°F. Low temperatures in January average 13°F. The temperature fluctuates with the change in season and humidity means extended use of home systems like the central A/C unit, electrical system, and central heating system. If one of these covered systems experience 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Milwaukee residents, from a trusted home service agreement provider such as American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement provides protection against unexpected repair costs for your covered appliances and systems that would NOT normally be covered under homeowner’s insurance. Homeowner’s insurance usually just protects you against losses due to natural disasters, theft or vandalism, but would NOT normally cover costs to repair appliances or systems when they break down due to normal wear and tear.

Customers with American Residential Warranty Home Service Agreements in Milwaukee receive excellent customer service, available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. We provide immediate service for emergency issues and we will respond to a request for service within 24-48 hours. American Residential Warranty customers can select their own service providers or use a technician from ARW’s larger network of licensed, pre-screened and pre-qualified service professionals. By having such a home service agreement, it will ensure that when a problem arises due to normal wear and tear on a covered system or appliance, it can be properly and quickly resolved without causing financial distress.
