Sacramento is the capital city of the state of California. Sacramento has a hot-summer Mediterranean climate, characterized by damp to wet, mild winters and hot, dry summers. A varying climate means extended use of Sacramento home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in Sacramento 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 Sacramento.

The normal annual mean temperature in Sacramento is 61°F, with the monthly daily average temperature ranging from 46°F in December to 75°F in July. On average, there are 73 days where the high exceeds 90°F, and 14 days where the high exceeds 100°F. There are 15 days where the temperature does not exceed 50°F and 15 freezing nights per year. The wet season is generally October through April. Temperature extremes 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 in Sacramento is to obtain a Home Service Agreement from a trusted provider, such as American Residential Warranty. A home service agreement protects 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.
