Oklahoma City is the capital and largest city of the state of Oklahoma. Oklahoma City lies in a temperate humid subtropical climate, with frequent variations in weather daily and seasonally, except during the consistently hot and humid summer months. A varying climate means extended use of Oklahoma City home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Oklahoma City 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 Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma City's climate transitions toward semi-arid further to the west, toward humid continental to the north, and toward humid subtropical to the east and southeast. The normal annual mean temperature is 61°F. July has a normal mean temperature of 83°F. Annual precipitation averages 36 inches. Winters are normally cool, relatively dry, and somewhat short, although highly variable. January has a normal mean temperature of 39°F. Oklahoma City has a very active severe weather season from March through June, especially during April and May. Being in the center of ‘Tornado Alley’, the city is prone to particularly frequent and severe tornadoes, as well as very severe hailstorms. 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Oklahoma City 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.

The remaining electricity comes from renewables, mainly hydroelectricity and wind, which together make up 8% of its generation. Oklahoma does not require utilities to generate a certain percentage of the electricity that they sell from renewable sources.
