Choose a Classic Heat Pump This Winter

By | September 12th, 2012|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on 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 component as an evaporator.  In heating mode a reversing valve switches the flow and the outdoor heat pump then becomes the evaporator and the indoor serves as the condenser.  This use of refrigerant is on average 3 times more efficient than the use of electric heat strips, making heat pumps a great choice for Dallas homeowners this winter.  Along with the increased efficiency, heat pump systems are also much better at controlling in-house humidity.

So this fall or winter if your home’s electric heat system is giving you trouble and the outrageous bills keep piling up…choose a Classic Heating and Air heat pump system and enjoy all the benefits of Dallas’ top HVAC service provider, America’s #1 rated equipment and a money saving system that meets all your comfort needs.

Community “Pool” Service

By | July 7th, 2012|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on 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!

Celebrate But Remember This Memorial Day

By | May 28th, 2012|Categories: Uncategorized|Comments Off on Celebrate But Remember This Memorial Day

As the entire United States of America recognizes today as a national holiday, let all of us remember what Memorial Day is truly all about.  Aside from the day off work, BBQ’s and pool parties, Memorial Day is a time to honor and recognize the thousands of Americans who have served in keeping our great country “the land of the free and home of the brave”.  Classic Heating and Air proudly takes time today to be thankful and to remember what Memorial Day means.

As we stand here looking
At the flags upon these graves
Know these flags represent
A few of the true American brave

They fought for their Country
As man has through all of time
Except that these soldiers lying here
Fought for your country and mine

As we all are gathered here
To pay them our respect
Let’s pass this word to others
It’s what they would expect

I’m sure that they would do it
If it were me or you
To show we did not die in vein
But for the red, white and blue.

Let’s pass on to our children
And to those who never knew
What these soldiers died for
It’s the least we can do

Let’s not forget their families
Great pain they had to bear
Losing a son, father or husband
They need to know we still care

No matter which war was fought
On the day that they died
I stand here looking at these flags
Filled with American pride.

So as the bugler plays out Taps
With its sweet and eerie sound
Pray for these soldiers lying here
In this sacred, hallowed ground.

Take home with you a sense of pride
You were here Memorial Day.
Celebrating the way Americans should
On this solemnest of days.
