Sterling is a city located in the state of Virginia. Sterling has a humid subtropical climate with moderate change of seasons. A hot and muggy climate means extended use of Sterling 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 Sterling.

The City of Sterling’s climate is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. On average, there are 197 sunny days per year in Sterling. The July high is around 87°F and the January low is 24°F. 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 is to have a Home Service Agreement, available to Sterling 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, which 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.

Customers in Sterling with an American Residential Warranty Home Services Agreement, receive excellent customer service, available 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week. We also provide immediate service for emergency issues and we will respond to a request for service within 24-48 hours. American Residential Warranty customers can select their own service providers or use a technician from ARW’s larger network of licensed, pre-screened and pre-qualified service professionals. 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.
