Networking Success Story - Roshni Pecora - Northeast Dance Center

For me networking is a wonderful way to share my enthusiasm and passion about the business of not only teaching dance but connecting with our community and youth. You never know who you are going to meet, the people you can connect with, form relationships with and ultimately inspire or help. Also I use networking as a challenge to myself. Being somewhat shy by nature networking makes me step out of my comfort zone in return I have gained more self confidence and trust in myself.

Congratulations to July's Customer Appreciation Drawing Winner!

Sam C. is the winner of our  drawing for customer appreciation. Thank you so much for being such a wonderful and dedicated customer!





The Paradigm Team includes you! Please be prepared to provide important information so that we can be equipped to diagnose your 



- Make, model, serial number on equipment.
- Fuel source: oil, natural gas, propane
- Install date:  year
- Is there any current warranty
- Did Paradigm install the equipment
- Last date service and last date cleaned
- Unusual odors, sounds or no sounds
- Any leaks around the unit
- Any break in power to home





How Are We Doing?

Let us know what you think about the newsletter! Is there anything you would like us to add? We would love to hear from you. You can give us a call or email us!






We think of cleaning and checkups for our furnace and air conditioning but it is also good sense to periodically perform a maintenance checkup on the water heater.


Sometimes replacing when under warranty makes more sense than repair. If your labor costs average around $50 per year over the remaining life of the warranty it's time to repair. Otherwise, invest in new energy saving equipment. We will be happy to help you find that Energy Star unit. Check out the different types of water heaters below. Call to inquire which best fits your needs.




Hot Water Heaters



When purchasing a storage-tank consider the amount of water the tank holds and the recovery rate. The first-hour rating (FHR) identifies the recovery rate, which is the amount of water the unit can heat to the set temperature in one hour. 




Tankless systems heat water on demand. No storage tank ad require less space. Gallons per minute (GPM) tell how much hot water the heater can deliver in a set period. America's Energy Star program reports savings up to 20 percent from your water heating using a tankless. Longer warranties can indicate better quality but be aware some manufacturers shorten warranties for such reasons as use with hard water or multifamily homes. Call us to help you find the unit that fits your need.



Heat Pump/Hybrid

A heat pump water heater works off the principle of moving heat from one place to another instead of generating heat. The term Hybrid is also used for the term heat pump. A heat pump is added to a regular electric water heater utilizing the heat in the surrounding air.  Although water is heated slowly it saves on energy and because cold air is pumped out when the heat pump kicks on it could help reduce air conditioning costs.

Bread and Roses Heritage Festival

Bread & Roses 2014!

WHERE: Lawrence, MA, on the Campagnone Common, 200 Common St

WHEN: Labor Day, September 1, 2014, 12 – 6 p.m. 

Contact:   Joshua Alba, Producer     Email: 

Festival Phone:  978-794-1655, www.breadandrosesheritage.orgFind us on Facebook under   "Bread & Roses Heritage Festival"

The 30th annual Bread and Roses Heritage Festival is a celebration of  the ethnic diversity and labor history of Lawrence, Massachusetts. It takes place in honor of the most significant event in Lawrence history: the 1912  Bread and Roses Strike.  


The Festival offers a variety of music and dance performances, poetry and drama, ethnic food, walking and trolley tours, and a section for history and labor organizations.  A newly introduced workshop series is kicking off in partnership with Qniversity, the Merrimack Valley Time Exchange, and the Center for Popular Economics.  Returning for the 8th time is Lawrence History Live, our speakers' tent with presentations on history and current labor and social justice issues.

We also host organizations representing the community and advocating for social justice.  Lots of children's activities in collaboration with the Lawrence High School's Humanitarian Club: pony rides, jugglers, hula hooping, face painting, an obstacle course, bubble blowing, and more.


Bread and Roses is the only broadly multicultural festival in Lawrence, the Immigrant City.  And it is the only festival in the East which celebrates Labor Day, in the most appropriate location, the site of the Bread and Roses Strike.


The festival is a one-day, free, 'open air' celebration for the whole family.  Join us on September 1, 12-6 p.m.!
