Why Arizona home insurance?
As the Grand Canyon state, it's no wonder that Arizona is full of contrasts. Significant variations in elevation throughout the state (mostly divided north to south) lead to different climates and disaster threats. Arizona, among the continental U.S. states, contains the metropolitan area with the most days over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (Phoenix) and the metro with the most days where the temperature is below freezing (Flagstaff).
Though the state experiences dry temperatures year round, two rainy seasons rapidly raise the amount of moisture in the air and create conditions perfect for thunderstorms, lightning, wind, and torrential downpours. While home insurance typically covers all of these events, it doesn't protect from the flash flooding that downpours can cause. If you live in a floodplain, consider purchasing a separate flood insurance policy. Earthquakes, which also typically are not covered by standard home insurance policies, also also occur occasionally in the state – though at relatively low strengths.

- Bundling: If you bundle your auto and Arizona home insurance through the same provider, you could save on your monthly premiums.
- Security: If you protect your home and family with security systems and deadbolt locks, you also could safeguard your wallet by earning a discount on your insurance premiums. That's because you're lowering the chance of a costly break-in.
- Fire: Even if you are accustomed to fiery desert heat, recovery isn't as easy as rising like a phoenix from the ashes of a house fire. The average claim for a fire is $33,000, so providers reward homeowners for being safe. You could earn discounts for installing smoke detectors or sprinklers in your home. If no one in your family smokes, you also could qualify for savings.
- New home: If your house was built within the last 10 years, you could earn a new home price break.

Standard coverage for Arizona homeowners insurance
Now that you know what weather to protect from and what to pay for that protection, familiarize yourself with what exactly that protection safeguards. The coverage types in a standard Arizona home insurance policy are:
- Dwelling and Other Structures: Any structures on your property, from your home (dwelling) to detached constructions such as toolsheds or detached garages (other structures) find protection with this coverage.
- Personal Property: Personal Property can help to repair or replace any damaged or stolen possessions in your home.
- Loss of Use: If a covered peril damages your house and forces you to move out while it undergoes repair, Loss of Use can help pay restaurant and hotel bills until while it is repaired or rebuilt.
- Medical Payments: If someone sustains an injury on your property and no lawsuit is involved, this coverage can help you pay hospital or doctor bills for that person.
- Personal Liability: If someone sustains an injury on your property and decides to take you to court, Personal Liability coverage can help pay for your defense and the final judgment.
