Save Energy & Money with These Tips!

If you are looking for a good way to potentially save energy and money this spring, look no further! Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have you covered. Today we are talking about a few ways you can help your home HVAC system use less energy and cost less money. Read on to learn more!


Regular Maintenance


Furnaces and air conditioning units need regular maintenance in order to continue performing well and to stay efficient. Scheduling maintenance twice a year can help prevent major problems from flaring up down the road. Imagine something small is starting to go wrong or wear out on your system. You aren't aware of it, so the problem continues and gets worse month by month. Soon, you're noticing that the system is having a hard time keeping up. Before you know it, summer and all it's humid glory is here and your home feels like a sauna. Don't let that be you! Call Royal Heating & Air to come check out your HVAC system every spring and fall to make sure everything is good to go for the next season.

Use A Programmable Thermostat


Programmable thermostats allow you to truly set it and forget it. You can program your system to change to specific, set temperatures during the day or night. This can allow your system to keep a schedule that could help the HVAC not have to work as hard all day. Remember to set the thermostat at the temperature which you feel comfortable. Setting it colder than what you prefer will not cool it off more quickly. It will only put a strain on your system and possible cause issues.

Upgrade HVAC System


If your home is operating on an old HVAC system, it could be slowing down and having a hard time keeping up. Not only that, but older systems also weren't designed with as many energy efficient technologies as they are today. New HVAC systems often have something called variable speed technology, which allows your HVAC to run longer at a lower power to minimize the amount of times it has to start up and try to play catch up with the temperature in the home. 


Take Advantage of the Weather


Right now is the perfect time to take advantage of the weather to help keep your home cool while saving money. Spring is a very temperate season without too many extreme highs and lows. Turn off the thermostat and open up the windows throughout the home and allow the spring air to flow through the house. This can help give your HVAC system a break, save you money on energy bills, and also allow fresh air into the home for better overall air quality. This can also be a great thing to try at night when the air is cooler. Just keep in mind that the weather may change and start raining, and always keep safety in mind when leaving windows open while you are sleeping.

Keep the Heat Out


During hotter days, it can be helpful to use black-out curtains and shades, or energy efficient windows to help prevent heat from flowing into the home. When the sun is beating down and the temperature is reaching toward 90, your HVAC system has to work harder to keep your home cool and comfortable. Blocking the radiating sunshine from coming into the house can help beat the heat.

Staying at Home and HVAC Efficiency

Do you know how staying at home could be affecting your HVAC system? Many people don't think about there being much of a difference, but it could be putting a bigger burden on your heating and cooling system. When you're away at the office during the day, it allows you to set the temperature at a more manageable level that doesn't put a strain on the HVAC system. However, with the family home all day, the system has to keep up with your desired temperature for longer without getting a rest. Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here to help you! Read on to learn how you could help keep your heating and cooling system efficient during this time.


Change The Filter


Filters don't last forever. Some work well for six months while others last for only one. Check how often your filter should be changed, and have backups ready to replace when necessary. If you forget to replace a filterand it gets overloaded with dust, pet hair, and other debris, it cannot filter air efficiently anymore, which puts a strain on your HVAC system.

Regular Cleaning 


Air conditioning units and furnaces collect dust, dirt, and debris as they work hard to keep the house comfortable. It's important to make sure they are regularly cleaned so they can operate as efficiently as possible. It's also possible for coils to accumulate rust and other harmful materials if not regularly cleaned and maintained.

Keeping your home as clean as possible is also helpful to the efficiency of your HVAC system. Be sure to regularly dust, vacuum, and clean out vents to ensure there are no blockages inhibiting airflow and making the system work harder.

Give it a Break


During warm spring days with that perfect light breeze, turn off the thermostat, open your windows, and give the HVAC system a break. This can also help your indoor air quality by allowing fresh air to circulate in your home. (Keep in mind, however, that this could let in pollen and allergens that may bother people with seasonal allergies or asthma.)



Don't Close Off Areas 


Some people think that closing vents in unused rooms and shutting doors can help your HVAC system by not requiring it to heat or cool that area. However, this is actually not true. Your HVAC system is designed to keep the square footage of your home comfortable, and closing off areas can actually cause the system to work harder to compensate for the closed vents. 


Schedule Maintenance


Your HVAC system works hard year-round. Keep everything in good condition by scheduling regular maintenance checks with your local HVAC company. It's a good idea to have maintenance performed on your units every spring and every fall before the major turn in temperature. Another indication that it is time for a professional HVAC technician to pay you a visit is if the unit is making a strange sound or giving off a bad odor.

Enjoy a Cleaner, More Comfortable Home!

Royal Heating & Air is the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here for you. We are The King of Comfort and would love to help make your home a more comfortable place to be. Today we are talking about some of the ways Royal Heating & Air can help improve the comfort, and possibly even health, of your home. Read on to learn more!


Request a Home Comfort Check


Our expert team at Royal Heating & Air is highly skilled and experienced in all things HVAC. When you schedule a Home Comfort Check, we will come out and give your house a once-over to make sure everything is working well. If there are any issues or inefficiencies, we can find it and help prevent further damage. All of the following are included in our home comfort check:
  • Air Conditioner
  • Refrigerant Level
  • Fan Motor
  • Heating System
  • Heating Elements
  • Gas Furnace Burners

Schedule Regular Maintenance


Some people choose to wait until there is a serious issue before they call a professional HVAC technician. However, waiting too long can cost more money in the long run. If something small is wrong, it may not be obvious to the untrained eye. The issue could become worse over time, eventually requiring costly repairs or even replacement of the whole unit.

It can also be very dangerous. If part of your system is malfunctioning, it could cause a carbon monoxide leak in the home. It’s a good idea to have one done every fall and every spring to prepare your home for the changing temperatures.


Improve the Air Quality


Indoor air quality has a pretty bad reputation. It can quickly become stale if it is always closed up without any fresh air circulating. Some common DIY tips are to open windows to allow a cross breeze every so often and to incorporate live plants into your home decor. However, neither of these things is quite effective at reducing allergens and germs from the air in your home.

Royal Heating & Air can install a UV light system in your HVAC to help destroy bacteria and reduce the overall amount of pathogens in the air you breathe every day. This could significantly help those with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.

HVAC Service at the Lake


Royal Heating & Air is a full-service, locally owned and operate HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks. We do everything from maintenance to installation and would love to help improve the comfort of your home this season. Give us a call! 573-480-4313

How to Choose the Right HVAC Contractor

Choosing an HVAC contractor can be difficult. With so many different options, it can be hard to know who you can trust to do an excellent job for a fair price. Royal Heating & Air has incredible reviews, great accommodations, and outstanding service, so we know what it takes to meet the highest standards in the industry. Today we are talking about some of the most important facts to consider when searching for an HVAC expert at the Lake of the Ozarks. Read on to learn more!


High Rating


It’s important to have a high rating with the Better Business Bureau. The BBB uses several ranking factors to determine how a business is most likely going to interact with customers. They then make a recommendation based on these factors that communicate how responsible, stable, and reliable they think the business is.

Royal Heating & Air has the highest possible rating of A+! We are proud to have such a high ranking that matches our passion to serve the Lake community with excellence and professionalism.

Emergency Services


Your heating and air conditioning system is a very important part of your home and personal comfort. We can’t plan for things to go wrong when it is convenient. The system may fail in the middle of the night or on a weekend when most businesses are closed. It’s important to have someone you can trust to be able to call when you need them most.

At Royal Heating & Air, we understand that being safe and comfortable in your home is extremely important. That is why we make it a priority to provide emergency services when something goes wrong. Save our number in your phone so you’re ready in case the furnace or air conditioner goes out: 573-480-4313.


Innovating for a Better Home


Find an HVAC company that goes above and beyond for you. A company that does the bare minimum does still get the job done, but a business that works hard to make sure you are comfortable and satisfied is even better.

Royal Heating & Air doesn’t just repair and install HVAC units. We provide numerous other services that can make a huge difference in your home. Some of these services include home comfort checks, whole-home humidifiers, UV light systems, mini-split installations, custom ductwork, and more!

Spring Cleaning Tips from Our Team!

The weather is warming up and spring is almost here. You know what that means... Spring cleaning! Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we care about helping keep you, your family, and your home comfortable. Spring cleaning can be a great way to refresh your home and feel healthier and happier going into the new season. Today we are sharing some of our favorite tips to get started with your spring cleaning - read on to learn more!


Make a List 


If you try to tackle all your spring cleaning without creating a gameplan first, you could end up burning out early with only half the work done. Save yourself the frustration by creating a to-do list before starting.

There are a few good strategies to follow that can help break up your list so it doesn't feel so daunting. Break tasks down into categories - either by room or type of task. Choose the one that fits your style of cleaning best. Do you prefer to do all the dusting at once? Or do you prefer to tackle one room at a time? Here are a couple brief examples of what your lists might look like...

Get Rid of Clutter


It can be hard to deep clean if a lot of things are out of place. You also probably don't want to spend time cleaning items that you no longer use or that don't bring you happiness anymore. Instead, get rid of the items you no longer want and make sure everything else is in its designated place before you start cleaning.


Ceiling to Floor


When deep cleaning, it is important to start at the top and work your way down. That way, any falling dust, dirt, etc. that is freed up won't re-dirty what you've already cleaned. Dust any cobwebs out from ceiling corners, clean all fans and light fixtures, wash the windows, and wipe the walls and baseboards down with warm soapy water. People often forget about cleaning the walls even though they can hold onto quite a bit of dust and debris, particularly if the wall is textured.

Soft Surfaces


The soft surfaces in your home can collect a lot of dust, dirt, and even bacteria. Take down all the curtains in your home and wash them. (Or have them professionally cleaned if they are not washing machine safe.) Follow the cleaning instructions for throw blankets and pillows as well. Couches and chairs can be difficult to clean on your own. If you've ever spilled a drink on the couch, it could be harboring mold and mildew without you even realizing it. You can use the hose attachment on your vacuum and try some DIY cleaning methods, but sometimes it is best to hire a professional to make sure harmful materials are all removed properly.

Keep the Air Clean!


If you've cleaned everything but forgotten about the air in your home, then it probably isn't truly clean. Harmful materials could quickly start building back up on everything you worked so hard to clean. To help keep the air in your home clean, follow these three important tips!

  1. Change the Air Filter - Air filters have specific life spans and can lose their effectiveness once that time has passed. Be sure to regularly change out your air filters to keep fresh, clean air flowing through your home.
  2. Install a UV Light System - HVAC UV light systems are highly effective at destroying bacteria, mold, and mildew that could otherwise be passing through your ductwork and spreading into the air in your home.
  3. Schedule a Check-Up - Call a professional HVAC company to check on your heating and cooling systems to make sure everything is running efficiently and cleanly.
Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we care about you and your family. Give us a call to help keep the air in your home cleaner and more comfortable this season!

5 Ways to Help Improve HVAC Efficiency

Improving your HVAC efficiency could make a big difference in your energy bill and have a positive impact on you and your home. Royal Heating & Air is the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have a lot of experience in HVAC operations. We have some great tips for you today on how to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system. Read on to learn more!


1) Regular Maintenance


Your HVAC system works hard year-round. Make sure everything is still in good condition by scheduling regular maintenance checks with your local HVAC company. It's a good idea to have maintenance performed on your units every spring and every fall before the major turn in temperature. Another indication that it is time for a professional HVAC technician to pay you a visit is if the unit is making a strange sound or giving off a bad odor.

2) Keep Clean


Air conditioning units and furnaces can collect dust, dirt, and debris over their lifetime. It's important to make sure they are regularly cleaned so they can operate as efficiently as possible. It's also possible for coils to accumulate rust and other harmful materials if not regularly cleaned and maintained.

Keeping your home as clean as possible is also helpful to the efficiency of your HVAC system. Be sure to regularly dust, vacuum, and clean out vents to ensure there are no blockages inhibiting airflow and making the system work harder.


3) Change Filters


Filters have a very limited lifespan. Some last six months while others last for only one. Make sure you know how often your filter should be changed, and have backups ready to replace when necessary. If a filter gets overloaded with dust, pet hair, and other debris, it cannot filter air efficiently and will put a strain on your HVAC system.


4) Energy Efficient Windows


It's no secret that windows can let out a lot of heat or cool air, depending on the season. Thinking about sitting next to a window in the winter makes us feel chilly enough to want a cozy blanket and hot cocoa. Installing energy-efficient, double-paned windows can help solve this issue. These windows help reduce the amount of hot/cool air that can escape through the windowpane, allowing your HVAC system to take a break more often during the day.

5) Custom Ductwork


If you are remodeling or building a new home, now is the perfect time to help promote efficient airflow through the HVAC system by hiring a professional HVAC company to install custom ductwork. Custom sheet metal fabrication can ensure your ductwork works with the flow of your home rather than against it. It can also limit leaks and inefficient spots that can often happen with standard air ducts. Call Royal Heating & Air to get a quote and add us to your team!

Indoor Air Quality & Allergies – What to Do?!

The temperature may be below freezing with wind that takes your breath away. But believe it or not, spring is a mere 5 weeks away! So, it’s time to start preparing for the warmer weather and the potential air quality issues that can come with it. Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC Company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have several years of experience with indoor air quality. There are a lot of ways to help keep the air clean and fresh this spring. Read on to learn some of our favorite tips! 


Pollen


Spring is a beautiful time of year. Who doesn’t love the end of winter, sunny days, and blooming flowers? If you have allergies or asthma, however, spring could be a frustrating and difficult time for you. As all of those gorgeous plants and flowers are blooming, they are also releasing pollen into the air. This pollen can cause allergic reactions like itchy and watery eyes, runny nose, and headache. For some it can be so bad that they have to take medication throughout the whole season and can hardly function when exposed to too much pollen. These particles can end up inside the home by hitching a ride on clothes or blowing in through an open window.

If you are experiencing respiratory symptoms or allergic reactions inside your home, it might mean that your air filter is overdue for a replacement. Each type lasts for a different amount of time before it needs to be replaced. Once it is full, it can no longer efficiently filter the air in your home, and harmful materials and allergens circulate through the air in your home causing difficulties.

Dust


Another common allergen that could be causing issues for you and your family is dust and the resulting dust mites. Dust can be an agitator that causes inflammation in your respiratory system. This makes it more difficult to breathe clearly and freely. Your body may be trying to tell you something by sneezing more often when you are indoors, trying to remove the dust particles from your nasal passages.

Your air conditioning unit and the compressor could also be dirty and clogged, which limits the airflow indoors. With limited airflow, less fresh air is being circulated inside your home. This can cause allergens to settle and continue to give you respiratory issues.


Mold & Bacteria


Another source of respiratory concern is mold and bacteria. If these harmful materials are circulated inside your home and then breathed in by you and your family members, you could be in danger of getting sick more often. These pathogens can come from a lot of different sources: pet accidents, particles getting kicked up from the carpet, tracked-in substances from shoes, improperly cleaned portable humidifiers, and many more.

Royal Heating & Air can help remove bacteria and mold from the air inside your home by installing an HVAC UV Light System. This system uses ultraviolet light to destroy harmful materials and sterilize the air that passes through the light. Imagine how much cleaner the air in your home could be with a sanitizing UV light system in your HVAC!

Air Quality at the Lake


If you feel like your indoor air quality could use some help, it could be time to call in a professional. Call the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the OzarksRoyal Heating & Air! Whether you need a maintenance check on your unit or an ultraviolet light system installed in the air ducts, we are there for you. Don’t spend your time in a house that feels stuffy and stale. Help get your home feeling cleaner and healthier with our team of expert technicians at Royal Heating & Air.

Programmable Thermostat FAQs, Pros, and Cons – Learn All About It!

Have you been considering installing a programmable thermostat in your home? Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, so we have all the inside information you need to help make your decision! Today we’ll go over how a programmable thermostat works and the pros and cons of installing one in your home. Read on to learn more!


What is a Programmable Thermostat?


Programmable thermostats offer the most flexibility out of all thermostat types and can be installed for almost any heating and cooling system. Standard thermostats sense the temperature inside and trigger the furnace or air conditioning to turn on when it falls outside of the set temperature. Programmable thermostats allow you to set a schedule of temperatures instead of just one. For example, if there is no one in the house for a large portion of the work day, you can program the thermostat to a lower temperature than when you are at home to give the furnace a break and save energy.


What are the Pros of a Programmable Thermostat?


Energy Savings

These programmable thermostats could help you save on your energy bill, particularly if you work outside the home for large portions of the day. Rather than keeping the house at a high temperature all day, you can program the temperature to drop while you are out of the house so the furnace doesn’t have to work hard heating an empty house.


Scheduling Conveniences

You never have to remember to change the thermostat before you leave, or feel uncomfortable waiting for it to come back to temperature when you come home and change it back. With a programmable thermostat, you can schedule it to automatically change temperature after you leave and before you get home.

Remote Controlling and Monitoring

Did the day’s schedule change? If you’re coming home early, you can use an app on your phone to change the temperature in your house remotely. You can also monitor the temperature from your phone to make sure everything is running smoothly. Talk about convenience!


What are the Cons?


Setup Can be Difficult

If you don’t have any experience setting up thermostats, it can be difficult to do. It could be easy to make a mistake that will cause the system to not function correctly. This is a relatively easy problem to fix, though. Just call the best HVAC company at the Lake of the OzarksRoyal Heating & Air – and we can help you out!

Compatibility Can be an Issue

Programmable thermostats don’t always work with every HVAC system. If you buy one without checking the compatibility first, you could end up with a useless new thermostat and an HVAC system that isn’t working. Make sure you do your research first!

Protect the AC Unit From the Winter with These Tips!

We are in the middle of the winter and the weather is determined to make sure we know it. With all this snow and ice coming through each week, what does it mean for your AC unit? Is all the snow bad for it? Should it be covered? Royal Heating and Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks and we are here to help answer all your questions about how to keep your AC unit safe this winter. Read on to learn more!


Covering the AC Unit 

Your Air Conditioning unit is not being used right now with all the cold weather. While it's taking a break this winter, should it be covered? There are several pros to covering the AC unit this winter. (Note: This does not apply to heat pumps.)

First, it can protect the unit from any falling debris, like heavy snow, broken tree limbs and twigs, icicles breaking off the side of your house. These falling projectiles could cause some damage to your AC unit on impact, so covering the unit could help protect minimize the impact.

Also, covering your unit helps prevent water from getting into the unit and then freezing when the temperature drops. If this happens to often, it can cause damage to the coils on your unit and require expensive repairs.

Keeping Your AC Unit Free 


There are also a few cons to covering the AC unit, however, and your circumstances could mean that it's a good idea to leave it as is.

Covering the unit protects it from accumulating water that could freeze and expand, but covering could allow moisture to build up in the enclosed space on warmer days and cause it to grow mold and mildew. 

The cover for your AC unit could also serve as a cover for pests. They may see it as a shelter and make their home by your AC unit. This could lead to contamination with droppings and damage to the unit from chewing rodents.


Regularly Check the Unit 


Whether you decide to cover the unit or leave it free, it's important to regularly venture out and make sure everything is okay. If you decided to go with a cover, make sure there aren't any tears in the cover, any rodents living underneath, or any mold and mildew growing between the unit and cover. If you decide to leave the unit open to the air, make sure snow is not accumulating on top in large amounts, keep the sides free from fallen branches and leaves, and make sure the gutters above the unit are intact and not leaking water directing on the unit. 

Schedule Regular Check-Ups


Even though you aren't currently using your air conditioning unit, you don't want to wait until the middle of a hot day to find out there is an issue. Call the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks - Royal Heating & Air, and we will come out to do an inspection on the AC unit to make sure frozen water hasn't burst the pipes/coils.
