Classic Aire Care has been in business for more than 80 years, helping St. Louisans stay comfortable for generations. A lot has changed in those years, but one thing remains the same – we provide the best customer service possible for all heating, cooling, plumbing, and drain cleaning needs.
It’s interesting to look back at 1926 to see just how much has changed. In that year, the St. Louis Cardinals won their first World Series title*, beating the New York Yankees in seven games. Babe Ruth was thrown out trying to steal second in Game 7, ending the series and giving the Cardinals their first of 11 World Series championships. In this regard, it seems not much has changed – the Cardinals are still winning and Classic Aire Care is still providing championship service.
In other areas, it is apparent that much has changed. The first weather map was developed in August of that year, and in November, Route 66 was established. When it comes to grocery prices, a pound of cheese cost about 38 cents, a pound of bacon cost about 42 cents, and a pound of coffee cost about 50 cents. The average worker made about $1,313 per year, roughly equivalent to $17,000 today. Born that year were Tony Bennett, Miles Davis, and Andy Griffith. And, of course, liquor was illegal thanks to Prohibition.
It’s interesting to look back and think about how many companies have started and folded in that time period. But Classic Aire Care remains a trusted resource across the St. Louis and St. Charles areas. We have accomplished this impressive feat by making sure that each of our clients understands just how important they are to us. We work hard to build relationships that last not just for one service call but for the entire time a person owns their home.

*Technically, the team that would become the Cardinals won the World Series in 1886 and tied for the championship in 1885 as the Browns, but generally, 1926 is credited as their first official championship. It should also be noted that this was not the Browns team that moved to Baltimore in 1954, which was actually a second team that took its name from the Brown Stockings, the Cardinals’ original name.
