“We have been very satisfied with the work you have done for us. Keep up the good work.”

– Wanda C.

“We just paid the $100 deductible. Their customer service was wonderful, probably the best I’ve ever had through a home warranty. They came out within three hours! They did a plumbing repair when we first moved into our home as well.”

– Jay J.

“They gave a call 30 minutes before arriving and worked on our furnace for a couple hours until the heat was back on. The furnace took several new parts, so they had to leave and grab them and come back. At the end of the evening everything was cleaned up and fixed. Jake who came out was very courteous and friendly explained exactly was was going on. He did a good job as well as not to track in more snow and salt.”

– Farrah B.

“I was very pleased with how quickly Jake was able to come to the property, diagnose the problem and do the repair. I call Jake for all our heating and cooling repairs and maintenance at our residence and rental properties. He is very dependable and the work is done as quickly as possible. You guys are awesome!!!! Thank you!!! Its always a pleasure working with you guys. Thank you for the referral from your friends.”

– Mike K.

“Jake’s Heating, Air Conditioning, & Plumbing fixed my broken furnace. I thought they were very knowledgeable and helpful.”

– Penny H.

“Jake was great. He was timely, professional, and very knowledgeable. So far we’ve been very pleased with his work. My only complaint, not at all related to the work performed, would be that we had to follow-up after the initial visit to find out about and schedule the actual work to be completed. Jake needed to order a part and so couldn’t finish the job right away and more than that our service call was during a huge winter storm so we figured there would be a slight delay. I’m sure that his normal practice is to be on top of communication though.”

– Janna B.

Home Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers by Jake’s

The comfort inside your home isn’t only affected by the effectiveness of your air conditioning unit. Humidity can also have a negative impact on your family’s comfort level and health, which means that you have to manage to keep it within the ideal range. Not sure if your indoor air quality is within optimal levels?

There’s no need to lose your cool! Jake’s Heating, Air, and Plumbing has a team of experts that know just how to help you maintain an ideal humidity level inside your home.

Dangerous Humidity Levels

Relative humidity refers to the amount of water vapor in the air, expressed as a percentage of the maximum amount of water vapor the air can hold at the same temperature. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the ideal humidity levels for your home should be between 45% – 55%.

When humidity levels are low (below 45%), some of the adverse effects include:

  • Dry eye, nose, and throat feeling
  • Static electricity
  • Viruses/germs thriving
  • Wood Damage (furniture, floors, etc.)

When humidity levels are high (above 55%), your home is more susceptible to:

  • Mold growth
  • Insulation being wet
  • Wood rotting

Jake’s Heating, Air, and Plumbing wants to make your air safer and healthier for the family, so we offer many solutions, which include:

Flow-Through Humidifiers

The best way to combat low humidity is by using a flow-through humidifier. Traditional humidifiers can spread mold or mildew with a reservoir that allows water to stagnate. You won’t have that problem with an easy-to-maintain flow-through humidifier. Our experts can add one to any forced air heating system to provide humidity back into your home’s air. 

Dehumidifiers

The best way to improve high humidity levels is by using a dehumidifier, which will take moisture out of the air. Dehumidifiers are ideal for those blazing hot summer temperatures in Indiana, so your home doesn’t start to feel uncomfortably damp.

FAQ
Should I have my furnace and air conditioner serviced every year?
Yes. Keeping your system properly maintained will lower energy and repair costs, prevent breakdowns, and prolong the life of your equipment. Neglecting necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while energy use steadily increases.
What is a Hybrid Heat Dual Fuel system?
With a traditional heating and cooling system, if you wanted to save more, you had to use less. But a Hybrid Heat system combines the benefits of intelligent control for both gas and electric heating to create an intuitive system that can actually react to changing conditions. No matter what the temperature is outside, a Hybrid Heat system will automatically select the fuel source most efficient for your home, which means you’ll stay warm in the winter, cool in the summer and save money all year long. To design a Hybrid Heat system for your home, we professionally match one of our heat pump units with a natural gas furnace. Contact us to see how much energy you can save over your existing system.
What is a Heat Pump?
Heat pumps are a great solution for your home comfort system because they work to provide both heating and cooling. Heat pumps have SEER ratings like air conditioners and Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) ratings for measuring heating efficiency. Higher SEER and HSPF ratings mean greater energy savings. Heat pumps are a very efficient alternative to electric heat. A heat pump works the same as an air conditioner in the summer, but it runs in reverse in the winter to heat your home. The system will be matched with a backup heating source, most often electric heat for those extremely cold days of winter.
How can I reduce my energy costs for heating?
  • Upgrade to a high-efficiency furnace — New high-efficiency furnaces use up to 50% less fuel than an older system. It can save you up to 25 percent of your home-heating costs in one year, and within a few years, you’ll have recovered the initial cost of replacing/upgrading your furnace. Choosing a model with an energy efficient motor can save 20 to 50 percent of the energy needed to continuously operate a fan motor. Let us show you the advantages of replacing your old furnace today.
  • Have an annual maintenance performed — Having an annual maintenance performed on your furnace by a licensed technician will help ensure it operates at its peak efficiency and catches any potential breakdowns before they occur.
  • Install a programmable thermostat — A programmable thermostat enables you to control your home’s temperature when you’re away or asleep. For every 1° you lower your thermostat for seven hours per day, you save one percent on your heating bill.
  • Don’t block vents in well-used rooms — Keep your supply and return air vents free of objects like blinds, carpets or furniture so your furnace can operate efficiently and there is even heat distribution.
  • Install ceiling fans — Change the direction of airflow on your ceiling fans. In the winter, the blades should operate in a clockwise direction helping to push the warm air from the ceiling down into the room.
