Newark, in the state of New Jersey, is located in the transition spot between a humid subtropical and humid continental climate. It has cold, damp winters and hot, humid summers. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Newark 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 cause unexpected mechanical breakdowns. For this reason, it is recommended that all homeowners sign up for home service agreements in Newark.

The January daily mean for Newark is 32°F yet, in most years’ temperatures as low as 10°F are expected. The July daily mean is 77°F and highs exceeding 90°F are received for an average 27 days per year (not accounting for the oft-higher heat index). The average seasonal snowfall is 29 inches, though variations in weather patterns may bring less in some years and several major Nor'easters in other years. A hot and humid climate with variations in weather patterns 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 then 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 Newark 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.
