Shreveport, located in the state of Louisiana, has a humid sub-tropical climate. A hot and climate means extended use of Shreveport 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 Shreveport.

The summer months in Shreveport are hot and humid, with maximum temperatures of 90°F exceeded for an average of 91 days annually. Sometimes the high to very high relative average humidity exceeds the 90 percent level. Rainfall is abundant, with the normal annual precipitation averaging over 51 inches. Severe thunderstorms with heavy rain, hail, damaging winds and tornadoes occur in the area during the spring and summer months. The winter months are normally mild with an average of 35 days of freezing or below-freezing temperatures per year, with possibility of ice and sleet storms. A humid subtropical 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 Shreveport 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.
