Networking Success Story: My Friend Jarod

A few months ago I wrote about my friend Jarod. He is a 15 year old boy in my town who suffers from "lysomal storage disorder. His family wanted to purchase a tandem bicycle for him but the cost was between 4,000 and 8,00 dollars. A friend reached out to me to ask if I would share his story with my friends. Your response to my post was overwhelming. in a few short weeks the word spread quickly and here is Jarod.on his bike I would like to thank everyone who donated and helped spread the word. Dreams do come true.

Home Inspection vs. "Engineered Home Inspection"

by Nancy Nichols, P.E., HI, LEED AP, Team Engineering

 

You have found a home that you really like. All is a "go," except you have not had a home inspection. You search the web. You find a Home Inspector who is licensed in New Hampshire. His credentials look good.

 

On the day of the inspection, the Home Inspector arrives early and has his equipment ready when you arrive. In one quick tour around the house the inspector finds some trim rot. Then, he takes you into the basement and upstairs. He finds cracks in the foundation wall that he refers to as "stress cracks", and "vapor staining" in the attic. "Nothing to worry about," he says. The inspection is over in about 2 hours. Everyone is relieved.

 

You have purchased your home and have been living in the home for the winter. Now you are stressed. The "stress cracks" in the foundation walls are getting bigger...

Paradigm's HVAC Team can help with your heating and cooling duct improvement install and repairs. Our trained and qualified specialists will: 

  • Inspect the entire duct system, including the attic, crawlspace, garage and basement as needed.
  • Do a full evaluation of the system's supply and return air space. 
  • Repair, straighten and detangle any damaged, disconnected or tangled ducts.
  • Seal all leaks and connections.
  • Make sure to seal all registers and grills tightly to the ducts. 
  • Insulate ducts in unconditioned areas with duct insulation (R-value of 6 or higher).
  • Include a new filter as part of any duct system improvement. 
  • Evaluate air flow after repairs are completed. 
  • Ensure there is no backdrafting of gas or oil-burning appliances, and conduct a combustion safety test after ducts are sealed. 

 

 

Get Your Ducts In A Row!

 

Ducts are used with Forced Hot Air (FHA) and cooling systems to distribute air. A vent located on the floor, wall or ceiling is the duct systems outlet to dispense that air into your home. Loss of air within the ducts can be due to leaks, holes, gaps or poor connections. Smells, irritants and stale air are possible signs of polluted duct systems. Comfort, a clean environment and energy savings are products of a regularly cleaned, properly installed and maintain duct system. Just changing the filter does not yield these results.

 

Let Paradigm help you inspect your duct system for proper installation, strong connections and sealing leaks, as well as, clearing out those pollutants that adhere to the duct system walls over time. Our goal is your goal Efficiency and Cleaner Air.

Exploding Toilets Prompt Recall of 2 Million Sloan Flushmates

 

plumbing  

This article was passed along to us from a current customer and we definitely thought that it was worth sharing!

 

 

 

"Reports of hundreds of exploding toilets have triggered a Sloan Flushmate recall affecting more than 2 million commodes from coast to coast.

 

More than a dozen "impact and laceration" injuries have been linked to the Sloan Flushmate III Pressure-Assist Flushing System, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday. 

 

So far, more than 300 Sloan Flushmate III units have exploded in toilet tanks, "releasing stored pressure," according to the CPSC's recall alert. "This pressure can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank, posing impact or laceration hazards to consumers and property damage."

Flushmate III units are black, made of plastic, and installed inside toilet tanks. They use air and water pressure instead of gravity to ensure a powerful flush, according to the company's website.

 

The recalled units are marked with a "series number" of 503, along with a 16-character "serial number" -- the first six digits of which show the manufacturing date. Units with manufacturing dates of between 101497 (Oct. 14, 1997) and 022908 (Feb. 29, 2008) are included in the voluntary recall.

 

Anyone with a recalled Sloan Flushmate III unit in their toilet should turn off the water supply and stop using the unit, the CPSC advises. Consumers can get a free repair kit from Flushmate by visiting the company's website, http://recall.flushmate.com, or by calling a toll-free hotline, (800) 303-5123."

Paradigm & Energy Star

 

Ever thought about the difference between efficiency and energy conversation? Efficiency involves a task performed with less energy. For example, heating or cooling your home through a duct system that has been properly install, routinely maintained and cleaned.  Energy conservation involves behavioral changes such as setting your thermostat lower in winter & higher in summer.

 

 Paradigm and EnergyStar would like to team up with you toward energy efficiency and energy conservation.  Start by watching the EnergyStar video HERE then call to see how we can help you.
