Growing up in Glen Rose, David’s initial aspirations were to work as a Police Officer. Daffan Cooling & Heating opened its doors in 1999, and at the age of 18, David helped his Uncle build the business from the ground up. After attending Mary Hardin Baylor for a time, he decided to focus on HVAC. He switched gears and studied HVAC and Refrigeration Maintenance Technology at nearby Hill College located in Cleburne. 12 years later, after his uncle retired, he became Vice President and co-owner of Daffan Cooling & Heating with Tom Peregrino.


Duke, The Daffan Dog

Tom & David have always maintained the goal of conducting business with honesty and integrity. They believe it’s important that our customers have trust in Daffan, and they do. They wanted a physical representation of the trust our customers have in us. A company mascot! Thus was born the desire to find our Duke. Duke the Daffan Dog came to us in January of 2018. He was our New Year’s baby!

Prior to Duke, we had Daisy who came to Daffan in February of 2014. For those of you who knew Daisy, she is alive and well and very happy. She retired from Daffan to head off on her own adventures.

What does Duke do when he’s not at Daffan? Duke has a loving mom who brings him to work each day. Duke lives with her at night and on the weekends. He has many playdates with his best friend, Jack, the 3-legged wonder dog. Visitors to Daffan are often greeted with a smile and a hello from Duke.
