Tulsa, the second largest city in the state of Oklahoma has a temperate climate of the humid subtropical variety. A hot and humid climate means extended use of Tulsa 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 Tulsa.

Tulsa is subjected to severe thunderstorms containing large hail, damaging winds, and, occasionally, tornadoes. Due to its potential for major flooding events, the city has developed one of the most extensive flood control systems in the nation. On average, May is the wettest month, averaging 6 inches of rainfall. On an average of 11 days per year, triple-digit temperatures are observed, sometimes exceeding 105°F from July to early September, and usually accompanied by high humidity. 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.
