St. Louis is a city and major U.S. port in the state of Missouri. The city generally has a humid continental climate with cool to cold winters and long, hot summers. A hot and humid climate and the change in temperature with the change in seasons means extended use of St. Louis home systems and appliances like the central A/C unit, central heating, and electrical system. Long-term use of appliances and systems in St. Louis 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 St. Louis.

St. Louis’s coldest month is January when the average temperature overnight is 21°F. In July, the warmest month, the average day time temperature rises to 89°F. The driest month is January with 2 inches of precipitation, and May is the wettest month with 4 inches. If a 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 St. Louis 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, pre-qualified service technicians to assess the situation. If the issue is due to normal wear and tear or a 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.
