Located in the Midwestern United States on the Missouri River, Omaha is the largest city in the state of Nebraska. Omaha has a humid continental climate with average relative humidity around 70%. A hot and humid climate and cold winter temperatures means extended use of Omaha home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Omaha 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 Omaha.

July temperature averages 76°F in Omaha with average relative humidity around 70% which leads to frequent thunderstorms. Annually, temperatures reach 90°F on 29 days and 100°F on about 2 days. The January daily average is 24°F with lows reaching 0°F on 11 days annually. Average yearly precipitation is 31 inches, falling mostly in the warmer months. Precipitation that falls in winter usually takes the form of snow, with 28 inches of average seasonal snowfall. 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 Omaha 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.
