Tallahassee is the capital city of Florida with a humid subtropical climate, long summers and short, mild winters. A hot and muggy climate means extended use of Tallahassee 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 Tallahassee.

Summers in Tallahassee are hot, and it is one of the few cities in the state to occasionally record temperatures above 100°F. The daily mean temperature in July, the hottest month, is 82°F. The city is cooler in the winter, with a January daily average temperature of 51°F. Summer is also characterized by short intense showers and thunderstorms that develop along the afternoon sea breeze from the Gulf of Mexico. 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 Tallahassee 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 the homeowner from high costs of unforeseen mechanical failures (applies to their covered appliances and home systems).
