Staying Cool During the Indianapolis Heat Wave

Summer arrived in Central Indiana with a vengeance this week, as Indianapolis has been hit 95+ degree temperatures for the last few days, with no let-up in sight for at least a few more.

In fact, the National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for Indianapolis and the entire Central Indiana area that states “…OPPRESSIVE HEAT AND HUMIDITY EXPECTED THROUGH AT LEAST SATURDAY…”

So, how can you make sure that your home’s air conditioning system does not break down at the peak of summer heat, and what can you do while you wait for repairs if it does?

WTHR-13 News had the same questions, and consulted with Thiele Service Technician Keith Wray to get some answers for their report “Keeping your AC working in the extreme heat”

The best ways to avoid emergency A/C repairs is to (a) make sure that the area around the outside compressor unit is clear and free from debris and to (b) change the air filter regularly (at least once every six months.) According to Wray, “Dirty air filters are always the number one problem.

But what do you do if your A/C has already stopped working and you’re waiting for repairs?

” (Keep) doors shut, shades down, and put your fan on to circulate air,” stated Mr. Wray.
