Riverside is a city in the state of California located in the Inland Empire metropolitan area. Riverside experiences a semi-arid climate with hot, dry summers and mild, fairly wet winters. A hot and dry climate means extended use of Riverside 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 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 Riverside.

Temperatures in the summer generally average in the 90s°F but often exceed 100°F with somewhat low humidity. In the winter, high temperatures average in the upper 60s°F, but during rainy days may not rise above 55°F. January, the coldest month, averages a high/low temperature of 68°F/43°F, while August, the hottest month, averages a high/low temperature of 95 °F/64°F. A semi-arid climate 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 Riverside 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.
