A clean-cut man enters your house. He's wearing a pressed red shirt, crisp khaki pants, and red shoe covers on his feet. He places a small red mat onto the ground, preventing his tool bag from crimping or scuffing your carpet, hardwood floor, or indoor boxing ring. He hails from Service Plus Heating and Air Conditioning, whose professional technicians travel throughout the greater Indianapolis area to diagnose and treat problems with plumbing, heating, and cooling systems. Since starting the company in 2002 with just one service vehicle, Chris and Emily Cunningham have expanded their fleet to 14 trucks fully equipped to replace or repair virtually any HVAC unit, detect leaks, unclog faulty plumbing, or tune up almost any system. After scheduling an appointment online, customers receive a picture and brief bio of their assigned technician so they know exactly whom to expect.
Founded at the turn of the 20th century, Dial One has evolved with the times. No longer relying on a horse-drawn wagon to reach ailing heating and cooling systems, the locally owned company now rushes to the aid of families across central Indiana in cheery yellow vans, piloted by one of more than 60 industry-certified technicians, and prides itself on prompt arrivals and never wasting its customers' time. Late-night hiccups can be attended to via Dial One's 24-hour emergency service, and an online Ask The Expert program allows for quick and easy answers to questions about cooling systems, furnaces, or the meaning of it all.

Lots of people have leaky faucets, but most people don’t realize that their faucets could be dripping up to 3,000 gallons of wasted water each year. The teams at Roto-Rooter locations throughout the county are brimming with this type of information, absorbed over more than 75 years in business.
The company began in 1935 thanks to the ingenuity of Samuel Blanc, who patched together his first sewer-cleaning machine from a washing-machine motor and roller-skate wheels. Today, armed with much more advanced technologies, Roto-Rooter’s technicians tackle a full range of residential and commercial plumbing and drain services. The technicians are licensed, insured, and available 24/7 in case of unforeseen emergencies, such as extracting a 1,500-pound tree root from an underground pipe. And though the company dates back decades, it’s still forward thinking—its ROTOGreen initiative includes the installation of fixtures that meet or exceed EPA standards.
