Homes in San Francisco, California with long-term use of home appliances and systems of can be at risk for normal wear and tear causing unexpected mechanical breakdowns. San Francisco’s weather is strongly influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean on the west side of the city, and the water of San Francisco Bay to the north and east. This moderates temperature swings and produces a remarkably mild year-round climate with little seasonal temperature variation. On average, there are 259 sunny days per year in San Francisco. The July high is around 66°F. The January low is 46°F. June is San Francisco’s driest month. It’s also the month that gets the least sun, with lots of fog that keep things chilly. Some years, foggy, overcast conditions last longer than a month.

Temperature changes with the change in seasons and humidity means extended use of home systems like the central AC unit, electrical system, and central heating system. If one of these systems experience 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 San Francisco 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 breakdown due to normal wear and tear.

By having such an appliance service agreement, it will ensure that when a problem arises due to normal wear and tear on a covered system or appliance, it can be properly and quickly resolved without causing financial distress.
