Scottsdale is a desert city in the state of Arizona. Scottsdale's climate is arid; winters are mild to warm and summers are extremely hot. A hot climate means extended use of Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale.

On average, there are 299 sunny days per year in Scottsdale. Over the course of the year, the temperature typically varies from 44°F to 106°F. The hot season lasts from May 28 to September 20, with an average daily high temperature above 97°F. The cool season lasts from November 20 to February 27, with an average daily high temperature below 73°F. A hot and dry 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 Scottsdale 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 in most cases.
