Plano is a city in the state of Texas. Plano is in the humid subtropical climate zone with a hot and humid climate. This weather means extended use of Plano home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Plano 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 Plano.

Plano has hot summers, mild winters with comfortable spring and autumn seasons. Plano enjoys many sunny days throughout the year. The July high is around 94°F and the January low is 34°F. Rainfall averages between 33 to 40 inches per year, most of which occurs during the spring. High temperatures 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 Plano 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.
