Don’t Be Spooked By Carbon Monoxide

Remember the winter of 2010?  The Superbowl?  The ice? Rolling blackouts?  Well, El Niño is moving into North Texas again this year and some of those same staples of the famed weather pattern we saw in 2010 are predicted to invade us here in Dallas in 2012.  Accompanying the brief periods of frigid cold and winter precipitation is the increased use of your home's heating system; whether that be a Dallas furnace, a Frisco heat pump, or an Allen air handler.  In this month's Classic Blog we want to take a quick minute to look at the use of gas furnaces and the subsequent issue of Carbon Monoxide. In 2011 alone there were 208 recorded CO cases in Dallas and nearly all of those had working Carbon Monoxide Detectors!  The key to safe, efficient operation is ensuring proper exhaust ventilation, sufficient combustion air, and exact gas pressure to [...]

Choose a Classic Heat Pump This Winter

There are a lot of technical terms, slangs and HVAC jargon that many Dallas homeowners aren't familiar with, one such term is "heat pump".  What is a heat pump? And what does it mean to me?  Well here in Dallas, Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney and surrounding areas where our lack of fall and mildness of winter tend to be the norm, heat pumps can mean saving money! For our purposes heat pumps are the outdoor unit that is used to cool and heat your home.  Yes we said cool and heat!  Heat pumps work in a manner that cools your home in the summer and then acts as the heat source in the winter.  This process is based on a reversal of thermal energy flow using refrigerant as it's mode of transportation. In cooling mode the outside unit acts as a condenser and the indoor [...]

Community “Pool” Service

Just the other day one of our technicians came in the office and was going hysterical about the number of people crammed into the community pool in the subdivision he just left.  His exact words were, "if there was one person, there were 200 hundred!"  Kids, parents, friends, grandparents and even a few stragglers who didn't live in the subdivision.  All this brought about a 45 minute long office conversation about local community pools scattered across Dallas and the surrounding metroplex.  As this summer wears on and relief (and fun) can be found in cool, chlorinated locales, just remember a few a simple things. Look out for yourself as well as others...respect fellow pool-goers rights and privacy...and above all else The Golden Rule! For more tips, safety, and fun ideas for your local community or subdivision pool check out the link below: http://www.poolsafely.gov/pool-spa-safety/staying-safe-pools-spas/community-swimming-pools/ HAVE FUN, STAY COOL and CALL CLASSIC for all your HVAC needs!

The Ides of March

If you're not familiar with the Roman calendar or Julius Ceasar the term "the Ides of March" may mean nothing to you.  But as the 15th of March approaches Dallas it means one thing...hot temperatures are near and the air conditioning "conspiracy" will soon be upon us.  Yes fellow homeowners summer in Dallas means high energy bills, barely hanging on HVAC equipment, and worst of all thousands of heating and air conditioning contractors coming into our homes conspiring to make an quick, easy dollar (all the while not really fixing anything) or worse yet trying to upsell us on something we don't need (inevitably to build large ticket sales to increase their commission based paycheck).  Whether a small company with a single unlicensed/uninsured employee or a huge corporate outfit whose overhead would make Microsoft blush, the sad truth of such a large demand service industry [...]

“No Air Conditioner Left Behind…”

In January we told Dallas and the metroplex about some great ways Classic Heating and Air can help save energy and cut down your monthly bills in 2012.  As a followup here in February Classic wants to "leave no customer or air conditioner behind" and increase awareness on a large, looming issue for all DFW homeowners...NEW D.O.E. HVAC STANDARDS! Several months ago in October and November of 2011 the 111th Congress along with the U.S. Dept. of Energy proposed and approved legislature concerning residential HVAC appliances, including furnaces, heat pumps, and air conditioning units.  The bill sets a new standard for many States including Texas, which states " the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of central air conditioners and central air conditioning heat pumps manufactured on or after January 1, 2015,  and installed in States having historical average annual, population weighted, heating degree days less than 5,000 (specifically the States of Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Louisiana, [...]
