Montgomery is the capital of the state of Alabama. Montgomery has a humid subtropical climate with short, mild winters, warm springs and autumns, and long, hot, humid summers. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Montgomery home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Montgomery 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 Montgomery.

The daily average temperature of Montgomery in July is 82°F with highs exceeding 90°F on 86 days per year. Summer afternoon heat indices are frequently at or above 100°F while in January, the daily average temperature is 47°F. Rainfall is well-distributed throughout the year, however, January through March are the wettest months and October is significantly drier than the other months. Thunderstorms bring much of Montgomery's rainfall. These are common during the summer months but occur throughout the year. High temperatures and 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 Montgomery 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.
