Anthony University in the News for Addressing Skilled Trades Shortage
We are proud to be featured on Fox 4 News on August 19, 2019. According to the segment, a study by the National Center for Education Statistics showed trade schools saw a dip in attendance three to four decades ago. In order to provide the number of qualified plumbing, heating and cooling technicians needed to provide our Kansas City metro area homeowners with the high standard of service our company demands, we started Anthony University in 2019.
Anthony University consists of competitive-entry, paid internship programs in HVAC, Plumbing and Drain Remediation. Apprentices learn classroom skills in math, chemistry, physics and leadership, as well as the modern HVAC and plumbing methodologies and diagnostic technologies needed to make them fully equipped to provide our homeowners with the best service possible.

Anthony PHC Teams Up with KCK Police to Help 90-year old Veteran
On Friday, June 14, 2019 we had the honor of installing a completely new air conditioning and furnace system in the home of Harold Tjaden, a 90 year old veteran of Kansas City, KS. When the Kansas City Kansas community policing officers found that Mr. Tjaden had fallen on hard times, they reached out to us at Anthony Plumbing, Heating & Cooling to see if we would be willing to help. They had heard of the community service work we do and felt this would be something we would want to be involved in. We invited Ferguson HVAC Supply of Lenexa, KS to help along with us, so they donated the equipment which we installed at Mr. Tjaden’s residence for free.
Mr. Tjaden had helped his wife through a long illness which tapped all of his assets and required him to take out a mortgage on his home. Now that she has passed, he needs to rent part of his house to be able to cover the mortgage payment. But neither his furnace nor central air conditioning worked, so he couldn’t rent it until he replaced those, which he could not afford to do. Seeing that Mr. Tjaden’s wife had passed, the Community Policing department of the Kansas City Kansas Police Department checked on him and found him distraught. When hearing about his unfortunate financial and living situation, they garnered the assistance of Kansas City Kansas District 3 Commissioner Ann Brandau-Murguia. Together the KCK commissioner and community police officers met with us at Anthony PHC and spoke to us about helping Mr. Tjaden. We were finally able to replace his HVAC system, and Sarah Plake of Kansas City’s 41 Action News heard about the story and it was aired in this segment in the evening of June 14, 2019.

Anthony’s Ryver Baynqs talks to Fox 4 News about Brown Friday, Busiest Day for Plumbers
Our own Ryver Baynq’s met up with Fox 4 News to discuss ways to keep your toilets, drains and garbage disposals running smoothly and clog-free during the holidays. Black Friday, referred to as “Brown Friday” in the plumbing industry, is typically the busiest day of the year for plumbers, because of the extra stress placed on a home’s plumbing by extra cooking and house guests on Thanksgiving. Water heaters also get an extra workout during the holidays due to extra showers and dishwashing, and because the water coming in from outside is colder, causing them to work harder.

You’ll Be Singin’ in the Shower in October with our Replacement Event
This October 2018, those who replace their furnace and AC system will receive a FREE Hot Water Booster installed for at no cost, a $749 value. It’s a deal that we hope will have you singing in the shower this fall!
Our Hot Water Booster makes the hot water in your water heater last longer, effectively boosting the capacity of your existing tank. It works by mixing cold water from the input valve with the heated water that comes out of the hot water valve. This allows your water heater to store water at a higher temperature of 140 degrees and still come out at a desired 120 degrees. Therefore, less hot water needs to be released from the tank, which boosts your tank’s storage capacity. For more on how the Hot Water Booster works, see our blog: https://www.anthonyphc.com/blog/hot-water/.

KCK Community Park Gets Water with Help from Anthony PHC
Wyandotte Countians Against Crime (WCAC) – an organization in Central
Kansas City, KS dedicated to creating and supporting projects and events that
help stop crime and start beautifying their neighborhood partnered with
Anthony Plumbing, Heating and Cooling, a Kansas City area business since
1951, on their latest park transformation.
WCAC created an ‘edible fruit tree garden’ with the vision of providing a space
for local neighbors to gather and grow food. As the garden project has grown,
with now 23 fruit trees, and over 100 feet of berries, the biggest challenge was
how to supply the needed water resource affordably and efficiently. “Our costs
previously exceeded $116 per month plus the cost of water to accommodate
our needs. Thanks to our partners, and with the help of the Anthony
Plumbing, Heating and Cooling plumbing technicians, who provided the
skilled labor for installation, we were able to obtain a frost-free hydrant which
is now in the middle of the park making our watering task far more
economical and easier”, says Paul Soptick, current President of the Wyandotte
Countians Against Crime.
Anthony Plumbing, Heating and Cooling – a Kansas City based organization
specializes in Plumbing, HVAC and Home Automation for residential and light
