Networking Success Story - Brenda Beaudoin - Beaudoin & Associates Realtors

I have been in the real estate business for 28 years now and found one of the best sources of meeting people is networking.  Especially if you want to meet other business owners and leaders.  I check monthly with all the area networking opportunities and book them in my calendar in advance.  And I always make sure to visit the same source on numerous occasions, because it takes someone receiving your business card 10 times before they truly remember you.  And, meeting people face to face gives you an opportunity to talk to them and see what type of business they are in and what kind of referrals they are looking for and also let them know all about you.  Follow up is always the key however, a follow up call or note tend to bring the relationship to the next level.  Be a good listener!

Friends of Kevin has been my primary source of networking, although I certainly search out others in the area.  But the reason why Kevin’s comes to the top of mind is that he always goes the extra mile to put people together!

Paradigm Plumbing, Heating and A/C 


     Paradigm Plumbing, Heating A/C



Mother's Day. First celebrated in 1908.Thank you mom for teaching us, for your sacrifices, and for the hope and faith you instilled in us.  



YAY ! Spring has arrived.


The almanac says summer's heat will be as bad as winter's bite. Take the opportunity to get your A/C quote and be ready to spring into summer.

Fun facts: 

The first air conditioner, designed by Willis Carrier in 1902 was designed to control the humidity in a New York publishing house.


It is cool to be green. Manufacturing companies are making the switch from the old company standard refrigerant, R-22 to R-410A. Removing chlorine from air conditioning refrigerants makes them ozone friendly.





Central Air Conditioning


Energy Star qualified central air conditioners provide a greater SEER rating, which offers up to 15% more efficiency than other conventional models.


 Check out York's video on maximizing efficiency performance and SEER ratings.    



We can help provide you with a quality, dependable, and comfortable a/c system to satify your budget. Call us for details on a discount toward your HVAC install.


Central air conditioners come in packaged units. One complete unit located outside or a split system unit where the condenser coil is located outside and the evaporator coil located inside. 


Standard efficiency ratings allow you to compare the performance of different systems.  Furnaces use AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency).  A central air conditioning systems efficiency measurement is referred to as SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio).  SEER considers the average energy used at various temperatures and humidity levels to determine a systems rating.  Heat pump units use SEER for cooling and HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) for heating.


Paradigm's experience and licensed team can help you determine the unit that efficiently utilizes your energy consumption. When retrofitting your home with air conditioning consider the air conditioner system and your current heating system for maximizing efficiency.






ENERGY STAR is providing a program for mail-in rebates for the purchase and installation of high efficiency ENERGY STAR residential heating, cooling and water heating equipment.
