The Woodlands is a master-planned community in the state of Texas in the Houston–The Woodlands–Sugar Land metropolitan area. The city has a humid subtropical climate for most of the year. A hot and humid climate means extended use of The Woodlands 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 The Woodlands.

In The Woodlands, summer daily highs average 94°F and daily lows average 72°F. During the Winter season daily highs average approximately 60°F and daily lows average 40°F. Humidity is higher than normal at a consistent level of 85-90% humidity in the morning and 60-70% humidity in the evenings. A hot and muggy 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 The Woodlands 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.
