Bastrop, TX is home to an esteemed HVAC business that is owned and operated by two people with hearts as big as Texas! Gene and Janice Rampy, owners of Centex Mechanical Air & Heat, have been selflessly supporting their community since 1984. Gene earned his Master HVAC License in 1983 and shortly after, he and Janice started Centex Mechanical in their hometown Elgin, TX. For the first few years of operation, they officed out of their home and worked diligently day in and day out to grow their business. In 1997, they purchased their first location in Bastrop.
Centex Mechanical employs honest, hard-working and kind people. All employees are rigorously screened, including background checks. Their nationally certified technicians provide excellent, professional service. Gene and Janice, along with the entire Centex Mechanical team are well known for the quality HVAC service and products they provide, but their admirable reputation doesn’t stop there! They are highly respected members of their community, known for helping customers struggling financially, as well as supporting local non-profits they hold near and dear to their hearts. Down Home Ranch is honored to be the recipient of their generosity time and time again.
The most recent gift Centex Mechanical gave to Down Home Ranch came at a time that was crucial to the organization. At the end of 2020, the HVAC unit went out in one of the bunkhouses used for DHR’s annual Ranch Camp (summer camp for adults with disabilities). Knowing June was fast approaching, DHR had to come up with at least $10K to purchase a new unit. An unexpected expense of this size would have a large negative impact on the organization's general operating budget — cue Gene and Janice to the rescue! After visiting the Ranch and seeing the immediate need for help, Gene and Janice offered to donate the entire unit and labor for installation! When DHR Development Director, Kelly Clarke, found out about this donation she stated with tears in her eyes, “This donation could not have come at a better time. We are forever grateful to Gene and Janice for their generosity and compassion for those we serve!”
Down Home Ranch is truly honored to have the support of Centex Mechanical Air & Heat and we are proud to announce Centex recently received the Carrier President’s Award 2021! The President’s Award recognizes Carrier factory-authorized dealers who exemplify leadership and management, customer satisfaction, expertise, business growth and operational excellence as well as service to the community. The award is Carrier’s highest honor and is awarded annually to just 1% of its factory-authorized dealers across the nation. Help us in congratulating Gene and Janice, as well as the entire Centex team on an award well deserved!
