Salt Lake City is the capital city of Utah State. Salt Lake City has a hot summer with humid continental climate. The city has four distinct seasons: a cold, snowy winter; a hot, dry summer; and two relatively wet transition periods. A varying climate means extended use of Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City.

Summers in Salt Lake City are hot, frequently reaching above 100°F, while winters are cold and snowy. Winters, however, are warmer as the Rocky Mountains are situated in a location that blocks polar air. January is the coldest month with an average temperature of 29°F. Temperature fluctuation during winter can lead to thick overnight fog and daytime haze caused by cool air, moisture, and pollutants trapped in the valley by surrounding mountains. The main source of precipitation is caused by massive storms that move in along the jet stream from October to May. In mid-to-late summer, when the jet stream retreats far to the north, precipitation mainly comes from afternoon thunderstorms caused by monsoon moisture moving up from the Gulf of California.

A hot summer with humid continental 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 Salt Lake City is to obtain a Home Service Agreement that’s flexible, affordable, and from a trusted provider, 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 for most cases.
