It’s Time to Perform Your Heating System Check-Up!


Another Arkansas Summer has come to an end, and now it is time to make sure that your heating unit or furnace is ready for Winter. There are several routine maintenance tasks that you can perform on your own, such as changing air filters, clearing debris and foliage from your outside unit, and brushing your intake vents.

But who has time for that? We do. And preventive maintenance is totally affordable with our VIP Club Membership program, around $13 per month.

In fact, an appetizer at Chili’s costs more than our Club Membership. And you’ll spend more on Starbucks coffee this week than you’ll spend being a Club Member. So, why would you not make your life easier knowing that professionals are performing these must-do tasks in preparation for cold weather? And remember that our guys will be there for you in the Spring when the weather starts to warm up again, too.

There are also several things that you can do to prepare your home, such as applying weatherstripping to the edges of windows, and installing inexpensive draft guards on your door jambs. You’ll be surprised how much these small changes can improve your indoor climate, and how greatly they will impact the bottom line on your utility bill.

DASH is the leading provider of heating and air conditioning service in Little Rock, and we’re here to help you prepare for Winter. If you have an older heating unit or furnace, it may be time for a replacement, which is less costly and less burdensome than dealing with a cold house in the dead of Winter -- and the costly repair bill that always accompanies an equipment failure.

The estimated performance lifespan of a heating and air unit varies by the state in which you live, but the general range is around 10-15 years. A properly serviced unit may continue to run longer than that, but an underperforming unit typically leads to overspending on energy bills.

New heating units and furnaces are much more energy efficient these days, and they won’t struggle to meet your home’s heating and cooling needs. A new unit won’t run up your utility bill like your old unit. Also, many of the heating and air units and furnaces that DASH installs qualify for utility and/or manufacturer's rebates.

We’ve been keeping Arkansas homes and buildings at comfortable temperatures for over 76 years, and our team is only a phone call away. We will happily provide you with a free, no obligation energy efficiency consultation, and make specific recommendations on how you can keep your family comfortable year round, and lower your energy bills in the process.

As always, we offer 100% customer satisfaction on all installations and service calls. For more information, click here, or give us a call at 501-224-3274 (224-DASH), and let us know how we can help!
