- Septic Tank: The septic tank is the first place where wastewater goes after leaving your home. Once in the tank, solids are separated from liquids. After separation occurs, the liquids pass through to the drainfield. Over time, a layer of sludge forms from the solids that accumulate in your tank. It is important to have these solids professionally pumped from your tank on a regular basis.
- Drainfield: Also called a leach field, the drainfield is where effluent flows from your septic tank once solids have been filtered out. Once in the drainfield, wastewater passes through effluent piping that is designed to remove bacteria. The water is then absorbed by the soil around the drainfield.
- Ground Soil: The ground soil beneath your home’s drainfield plays an important role in your septic system, as it serves as the last channel of treatment for wastewater leaving your home. The type of soil on your property will impact the rate at which water can pass through to ground or surface water. A plumbing professional can advise you on choosing soil that will be most effective at filtering our remaining microorganisms.

Central air conditioning is an invention that few people would prefer to live without. Although central air conditioning provides many great benefits, some homeowners would like to enjoy these benefits with the added ability to independently adjust the temperatures in different areas of the home. HVAC zoning takes air conditioning technology to a new level, enabling homeowners to divide their homes into different temperature zones and set their air conditioning based on individual rooms’ heating and cooling needs.
If you have an exercise room, a yoga studio, or a workshop in your home, you may wish you could keep that room at a lower temperature than other rooms in your home. You may also wish to have a cooler home office, or be able to lower your kitchen’s temperature to battle the heat produced by appliances. With HVAC zoning, you can keep these specific rooms at lower temperatures without making other family members uncomfortably cold. If you like to sleep in a cooler room, you can include your bedroom in a cooler zone, as well.
Cut Energy Costs and Consumption
If you like to enjoy a cool home, you may be frustrated by having to cool rooms that you rarely use. In the winter, you may have similar frustrations about wasted energy costs from heating empty rooms. You can save money and reduce your carbon footprint without sacrificing comfort by using less climate control in these rooms.
Take Advantage of Convenient Operation
If you elect to have HVAC zoning installed in your home, you can benefit from smart home technology that allows you to control the temperature levels of the different zones in your home with a single remote control. You can also choose to use separate thermostats for each zone.
If you are a Phoenix-area homeowner who would like to speak with an air conditioning and heating professional about zoning your home, call Parker & Sons, Inc. at (480) 963-1829. Once one of our professionals has customized your home’s air conditioner and heater to meet your zoning needs, you will be able to enjoy greater comfort and reduced energy costs.
Many images and ideas come to mind when someone mentions a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. Possibly Josh Hartnett combing through the streets of Somalia trying to save American soldiers after a their Black Hawk helicopter was shot down by Somali militia fighters, or maybe a news package of any battle fought in the Middle East is brought to the forefront of memory. Regardless of what comes first to mind, it’s safe to assume the Black Hawk helicopter has some kind of military connotation.
Recently, at Parker and Sons, we challenged this notion by acquiring the same helicopter to air lift and replace a 30 ton air conditioning unit at the Arizona Mills mall in Tempe.
A crane could not be used because of two factors - the location of the unit to be replaced and simply because the unit itself was too heavy for the pulley system. Of course the first solution that should come to mind has to be “why not use a Black Hawk Helicopter,” right?
