Minneapolis is a major city in Minnesota that forms "Twin Cities" with the neighboring state capital of St. Paul. Minneapolis is located in a continental climate zone and has a hot, humid summer. The city experiences a full range of precipitation and related weather events, including snow, sleet, ice, rain, thunderstorms, and fog. A hot, humid climate with varying weather patterns means extended use of Minneapolis home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Minneapolis homes can be a 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 Minneapolis.

Temperatures in Minneapolis range from an average of 16°F in January to highs that can reach 84°F in July. From May to September, Minneapolis has high humidity and hot temperatures... Temperature changes with the change in seasons and the humidity 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 Minneapolis 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, pre-qualified 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.
