Indy’s Super Bowl XLVI a Great Success – Now it’s Time to get Back to Reality

After years of negotiations, planning, building, restoring, planting, and thousands of Hoosiers working tirelessly to achieve a singular goal, Indianapolis has finally hosted a Super Bowl, and, in our opinion, extremely successfully. We extend our congratulation to the members of the Indianapolis Host Committee and all the volunteers that helped make this perhaps the best Super Bowl Week of all time.

Virtually everyone we spoke to or heard on TV had nothing but great things to say about Indy and the party we put on. Hundreds of thousands of people from across the country visited Super Bowl Village, the NFL Experience broke all attendance records, and the zipline had more than 10,000 riders over the 10 days it ran, including Late Night host Jimmy Fallon, who did a great job showing Indy at it’s best as he hosted his show from the Hilbert Circle Theater.

In fact, the zipline was so popular there’s talk that it may make another appearance here in the future, say maybe sometime in late May. If you missed the chance to ride it, or want to do it again, keep your fingers crossed.

But, alas, it’s all over now. Time to get back to reality. And the reality is that it’s early February, and as mild as it has been so far, winter ain’t over yet! You can bet that we’ll still see our fair share of snow and ice before it’s over. Are you ready for it?

Chances are that more than a few residents of Indianapolis, Zionsville, Noblesville, Carmel and other communities that hosted events got so caught up with Super Bowl preparation that they may have overlooked a few of the things they would normally have done to get their home ready for the season, such as getting an annual maintenance check performed on their furnace or heating system.

According to PATH, a Public – Private Partnership for Advancing Housing Technology, “Get your furnace checked and tuned-up by professionals. Keeping your heating system at its optimum efficiency could save you hundreds of dollars on heating costs.”

If you haven’t had a Winter Tune-up performed yet, we currently have appointments available for comprehensive maintenance checks of your furnace, boiler, heat pump and ventilation system. At the same time, you might want to take advantage of the Thiele “Rewards” Service Program. For a very affordable annual fee, we will:
