cutting board with burger and fries

Summer here in Indy means heat, humidity, and some good ol’ fashioned sunshine. While we’re quite fond of a strong AC unit, there are plenty of other ways to beat the summer heat around Indianapolis.

Before you decide to stay indoors and dial down the thermostat, check out some of these favorite local venues. Our picks for 2016 have something for everyone. Whether you want to explore the great outdoors, find a great shopping deal, or sip on a great local brew, we’ve got the summer itinerary you need to keep cool around town.

Best Outdoor Activities:

Sahm Park & Aquatic Center in Castleton

Probably the easiest way to lower your core body temp is to take a nice dip in the pool. We love Sahm’s Park because it’s convenient to get to and has plenty of space for relaxing. Open swimming, water slides, and other water spray features can help you stay chill on the sunniest of days.

Rusted Moon Outfitters in Broad Ripple

If you want a quieter scene and want to soak up some nature, be sure to check out Rusted Moon Outfitters this summer. They’re the local, one-stop shop for everything outdoors! You can even rent a paddleboard or kayak and then head over to the White River just down the road. If you start working up a sweat while paddling, it’s easy to cool off with a quick splash of water.

Fort Harrison State Park in Lawrence

Maybe shade is what you’re after? The trails at Ft. Ben can help you take cover. We like to take our pups hiking at this state park because their paths are fairly short and easy to follow. (Just don’t forget your doggie bag and a collapsible water bowl for them.)

Best Shopping:

BluePeppermint Boutique in Fishers

Some days are just too hot and stuffy to enjoy the outdoors. When that happens, consider getting out of the house for an afternoon shopping spree. That way, you still get a change of scenery, but you don’t have to sacrifice the AC. Located in a cute green house, BluePeppermint Boutique has a great collection of whimsy-chic clothing and accessories. We always find something fun!

Silver in the City on Mass Ave

There’s even more to love with local shopping at Silver in the City. This gift shop has some uniquely classy jewelry and loads of quirky items for anyone with a good sense of humor. Use your free time in July to get holiday shopping done early—who cares if it’s six months away? You might even find something special for yourself. (Also note: BRU Burger Bar is just around the corner. They've got a nice, big patio and unbelievable burgers!)

Dottie Couture Boutique at Keystone

There’s even more fashion trends at Dottie Couture Boutique to browse. They’re really good about keeping stocked with new styles and shipments, and the prices are great too. With other locations in Fishers and Greenwood, this is an excellent place to put on your list. A new dress for summer can help you cool off. It’s all about dressing for the season, right?

Best Food & Drink:

Sundae’s Homemade Ice Cream on 79th and Fall Creek Road

Sure, getting an ice cream cone is one of the most obvious ways to “beat the heat,” but if you haven’t had Sundae’s yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. Over 30 years of ice cream crafting make them one of Indy’s best-loved venues. (A couple of our favorite flavors are Peanut Butter Pie and Sundaes Trax. Also love the Reese's Mountain Sundae!)

Fire by the Monon in Broad Ripple

Fire by the Monon is just a half block off its namesake trail, so it’s easy to stop in and treat yourself to a drink or some dessert after a warm afternoon stroll. They have plenty of craft beers on tap, but we like to go because they have a great “Monon Mule.” So refreshing! (And even cooler—The owner's wife even makes some of their scrumptious sweet-tooth offerings herself.)

Blind Owl Brewery off 62nd and Binford Boulevard

On mild nights we definitely recommend hanging out at Blind Owl. It’s a family-friendly bar and restaurant with a great patio space for outdoor games. Nothing quite says Indiana summertime like a game of corn hole! There’s also bocce ball, so be sure to bring your game-face.

Alibi’s Bar & Grill at Shadeland Station

After a long day at work, we think of Alibi’s as our local “Cheers” bar. Great company and awesome food—just what you want on a hot day. Plus they’ve got the best cheesy bread and pizza around. Try their BBQ Chicken. They make it with smoked Gouda and the flavor is perfect for both winter and summer. Yum!

 

What do you think of our 2016 list? Did we include some of your own local Indy favorites? Check these places out and leave us a comment below. We’d love to hear from you!

It can be hard to figure out the best course of action when your HVAC unit starts acting up because there are so many factors to consider. The size, age, financing options, and repair costs on an HVAC system all contribute to making the “right” decision on whether to repair or replace.

As a general rule, it’s usually a good idea to replace a product when its repairs are climbing over 50% of a new item cost, but a real cost comparison is often more involved. Sure, a repair bill of $300 isn’t nice to look at, but it still looks cheaper than an entire system upgrade. On the other hand, the lower cost isn’t always the smartest move. Say your equipment is 15 years old and you’ve already made a $500 repair earlier in the year…well, then the math may not be so easy. Trying to predict what else might go wrong with your unit in a couple years (or even the next 6 months) is a tricky gamble. That’s why we recommend looking at some concrete facts.

Reasons to Repair

1. Is the broken part under warranty?

When a part is covered under warranty, it’s usually best to get the repair and move on. You might still want to consider the cost of the labor (if there is any), but warranties usually make the repair vs. replace conundrum pretty clear-cut. If nothing else is wrong, why pay for a new air conditioner or furnace?

2. Is your system less than 10 years old?

Your HVAC equipment might have different life expectancies, but heat pumps, air conditioners and furnaces are said to last 12 to 15 years on average. If your unit is 10 years old or less, your chances of having frequent problems are a lot lower, so making the quick repair tends to be more appealing than full replacement.

3. Are you planning to move in the next year or two?

When your odds of moving are high, confirm that your unit isn’t at the end of its projected lifespan before opting for the repair. Replacing or upgrading your HVAC unit could help your house stand out to potential buyers; but if the unit is in relatively good condition or still under warranty, you might be better off sticking with the easy fix.

4. Is the unit right for your home?

This question can be a little trickier to answer on your own, but a good HVAC tech will tell it to you straight. Some furnaces and air conditioners are actually too big for their home they are installed in and end up wasting energy and money. Proper installation goes a long way with your unit’s efficiency too, so if you trust that your unit is in the right location, sized right, and has the right efficiency rating, you’ll likely feel good about getting the repairs.

Reasons to Replace

1. Has your unit needed costly repairs in the last two years?

Older HVAC systems are more likely to have frequent repair issues. When your unit has passed the warranty coverage date and repair costs only seem to escalate, you’re probably toeing the line for replacement.

2. Has the system been under-performing in other ways?

Maybe you’re constantly adjusting the thermostat to get comfortable, or the air indoors feels stuffy, damp, or just “off.” Is your furnace or air conditioner starting to sound louder than ever before? Some of these annoyances could be fixed with quick repairs, but if not—it might be time for new equipment.

3. How much could you save with a more efficient unit?

Check out the energy savings calculator to estimate the money you can pocket each month from a system upgrade. The latest technology can cut energy costs by as much as 40% and still run quieter than models made 10 years ago. If you’ve made other efficiency updates to your home—like new windows or insulation—an HVAC system with a good ENERGY STAR rating might be what you’re missing to really kick those saving into high gear.

4. Are good financing options available?

If your HVAC company can help you identify cost-effective financing strategies, a system replacement might be worth your while. When considering replacement options, knowing about seasonal specials, manufacturer rebates, or 0% financing opportunities with a local bank can make you feel a lot better about going with a new air conditioner or furnace.

 

Now that you’ve weighed the possibilities, tally up your Yes and No answers from each category. Answering “Yes” to 2 or more questions is a good indication that you’ll want to consider that side’s solution. Consult with your local HVAC tech if you’re still on the fence. They can help walk you through the different scenarios for your current system and home setup so that whether you choose to repair or replace, you can feel confident that it’s the right decision for you and your home!
