Written by admin on Jan 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

At the end of each year, Contractor Magazine identifies 10 products which it labels the best products of the year. These products are almost always related in some way to the HVAC or plumbing industries. These products are among the most cutting edge, innovative, or creative of any that hit the market over the course of the year. Each year, Parker & Sons looks at this list of top 10 products and considers how best to utilize them and make them part of the business. Parker & Sons comments on a selection of Contractor Magazine’s Top 10 Products of the Year.

Topping the list this year and holding the number one spot is the Therm and Greentherm Tankless Water Heater. The new 2015 model is now offered in classic Bosch White bringing them in line with the timeless and elegant look that Therm and Greentherm products have always been known for. Additionally, both the gas-fired and electric models either meet or exceed the DOE National Appliance Energy Conservation Act’s 2015 standards by providing an EF of .95 and .93 respectively.

Number two on this year’s list is a product that combines both beautiful style and innovative functionality. The Universal Nufit Bathtub Drain Cover can fit over any bathroom drain in the world. It is also corrosion resistant and designed to last for years and years. It features a high-flow grid strainer which prevents things like hair from getting down the drain and creating a clog.

Of all the products on Contractor Magazine’s Top 10 List, the Square Tub Filler may be Parker & Sons favorite. Edging in at number seven, this beautiful bathtub is truly unlike any other. The spout doubles as a hand shower which can be angled upwards to 60 degrees should tub owners wish to take a standing shower.

Hastings & Hastings Advises on Proper Dog Park Etiquette

Written by admin on Jan 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

America is in love with dogs. In Arizona, that love affair is particularly strong. If recent legislation is to be used as an example, the people of Arizona care deeply about the wellbeing of their animals. For many dog owners, a part of cultivating that wellbeing is taking periodic trips to the dog park. Hastings & Hastings provides advice on proper dog park etiquette good for both veteran visitors and inexperienced park enthusiasts alike.  
Hastings & Hastings cautions that dog owners should only take their pets to the dog park if they properly trained and ready.
Veterinarians advise that pet owners avoid taking the puppies to the dog park until they are at least 6 months of age. Further, puppies should stay home until they have received their full round of shots and vaccinations. Close contact with other animals facilitates the transmission of viruses and diseases. Younger animals without fully developed immune systems will be place at highest risk by this contact.
Further, Hastings & Hastings advises that pet owners should ensure that their dogs are properly trained before visiting the dog park. Points of behavior to focus on include the proper way to great others dogs. A well trained dog should not charge another animal overly enthusiastically. This could lead to confrontations. Additionally, they should not exhibit dominance behaviors which could likewise cause a conflict.
Pet should always avoid brining a leashed dog into an off-leash area of the dog park. Other dogs could become tangled in the leash leading to broken bones and even choking. If a dog is not trained to be off-leash, it should remain in an area designed for leashed animals.
Hastings & Hastings calls upon dog owners to play close attention to their pets when visiting the dog park. Occasionally, enthusiastic playing could get out of control. It is important for owners to be nearby if intervention is needed.
“Spending a beautiful, sunny day at the dog park is a great way to have fun with your dog. But remember, everyone else is there to have fun too. We are sure, if you practice proper dog park etiquette, everyone will get along just fine,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.

Written by admin on Jan 28th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Parker & Sons hears every day from homeowners who want to keep energy costs down. Typically, Parker & Sons reports that these conversations revolve around HVAC units which are the largest home energy user. Often, individuals don’t think for a second about the second largest energy user in the home. In fact, most homeowners and renters might not even know what the second largest energy using in their home is. Parker & Sons is here to report that the hot water heaters are often the second largest culprit in terms of elevating the monthly electricity bill.

New models of heat pump water heaters are highly energy efficient and represent a fantastic way to cut costs and save on the monthly energy bill.

While ENERGY STAR certified heat pump water heaters may be more expensive than several model of water heater available on the market, on average, they will pay for themselves within a period of just 2.4 years. Over the standard 13 year lifespan of an ENERGY STAR heater, families of four save on average $3,500 and avoid dumping over 20 tons of greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.

Hastings & Hastings Advises Phoenicians to Seek Legal Counsel in the Event of an Accident

Written by admin on Jan 28th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Hastings & Hastings, Arizona’s Premier Discount Accident Lawyers, has been practicing personal injury law in the Phoenix for over 30 years. In that time they have represented accident victims in personal injury lawsuits both large and small. Hastings & Hastings advises accident victims to seek out legal counsel and guidance if they have been involved in any accident, regardless of the severity. There may be legal implications, options, or consequences that individuals are unaware of or have not considered. Law firms like Hastings & Hastings are well equipped to provide guidance to accident victims.

Hastings & Hastings knows better than most, having represented Phoenix residents in thousands of accident cases, that injuries or health concerns may sometimes present themselves days or even weeks following an accident. For this reason, it is important to seek medical attention following an accident even if accident victims do not initially believe that have been injured.

In the event of an injury, an experienced personal injury attorney will best be able to advise accident victims on their legal options. Without the guidance of an attorney, it is easy for individuals to become lost in the labyrinthine complexity created by police reports, insurance claims, hospital bills, and witness statements.  

Hastings & Hastings believes that individuals who seek legal guidance following an accident should never feel as if they are being pressured into perusing a lawsuit. Rather, upon seeking legal guidance, accident victims should feel informed, educated and empower. During a free legal consultation, Hastings & Hastings will encourage accident victims to make their decisions regarding legal actions. Should they decided to retain the services of Hastings & Hastings, they will be entering into a partnership which Hastings & Hastings takes very seriously.

“It is important for individuals to explore their options following an accident. You have rights as an accident victim. You should never overlook an opportunity to defend those rights. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule a free legal consultation, please call us without hesitation,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.

The Book by Manfred Popp about Weight Loss and Good Fitness Can Improve Your Health

Written by admin on Jan 27th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Manfred Popp published the book “You can do what I did: lose weight, improve your health, stay fit!”

The author explains, on the basis of his own experiences, as it is possible, in the long run, to reduce the weight significantly and thereby lower blood pressure and improve health.

This new book offers you a practical step-by-step guide to improve your health and fitness.

Shortly thereafter the author Manfred Popp has retired with 64 years, he visited the doctor to perform a health check and it turned out that his blood pressure was clearly too high. His doctor said that either he has to take pills for the rest of his life or his excessive weight has to be reduced by at least 33 pounds. He bought the tablets and his wife read to him at lunch with emphatic clarity the long list of side effects. It became vividly clear that he had to make a fundamental decision:

The author chose the weight loss. By following the diet and training plan developed by him, he managed to reduce his weight by about 44 pounds. His goal was not only to achieve this weight loss, but the real challenge was to keep the lower weight in the long run. Therefore, his action strategy did not include a crash diet. He was aware that this could mean nothing more than changing his lifestyle with the goal to maintain a lower weight in the long term.

Over a period of over ten years, from an age of 64 up to over 74, the author practiced the guidelines published in the book himself. Now, he benefits from the impressing results:

– He has lost approximately 45 pounds.

– The upper blood pressure remains stable in the “healthy” range.

– The lower blood pressure also moves in the “healthy” range.

– The pulse rate has leveled in an optimal range.

– His general health condition has improved significantly.

– His physical condition is much better than before.

The key to success was an increased, but still reasonable, physical exercise combined with a healthy diet. After nine years, the health of the author improved significantly – without any additional medication.

In sum the author is convinced that his program also works for other “best agers” as well as for younger peoples.

Since friends insisted several times to learn about the secrets of his success, he decided about 5 years ago to write his first book in German. (More information you can find on the author’s German Website

Two years later, an extended revision of the German book about weight loss and fitness was published.

In the age of over 73, he released his first English-language book titled:

You can do what I did: lose weight, improve your health, stay fit!
