How To Protect Your AC This Winter

The winter season is in full swing, which means that your furnace is working hard to keep you and your family warm. Although we aren't using the AC unit now, we can't forget about it. It's important to make sure your AC unit is taken care of during the winter months to ensure it's ready to keep you cool this next summer. Lake of the Ozarks best heating and cooling company has a few tips to help protect your AC unit this winter.

Made For The Cold

Although your air conditioning unit is made for the summer months, it's actually built to survive the tough winter weather. Some people even find that their units work fine taking no precautions before winter. However, the outdoor components of the system can be damaged by debris, moisture build-up and repeated freeze-and-thaw cycles. You could switch off the power to avoid accidentally turning it on during the winter, which could create a problem if it starts cycling water through the system and that water freezes. 

Cover Up?

There are pros and cons to covering your AC for the winter. While the cold itself won't hurt your system, the debris that accumulates over the season can. If you decide to cover your AC unit during the winter months, it is important to clean it up and remove any leaves or other gunk that has built up before stowing it. There are two ways you can cover an AC unit. First, you can place a piece of plywood over the top to keep icicles, branches, leaves and other things from falling in the top. Secondly, an AC cover from manufacturers can also keep debris out as well as lower the risk of damage to the metal from repeated freezing and thawing. However, if you have a heat pump, it is important NOT to cover it during the winter months, as it works all year long. 

Don't Forget To Check On It

Whether you decide to cover your AC or not, it is important to periodically check on your AC unit throughout the winter season. If your AC is covered, it is important to make sure the cover is intact. In addition, it is important to check underneath the cover and clean out any debris that may have gotten in. If you did not cover it, it is important to check on your system after any snow storms to remove snow from the top to prevent water from getting into your system. It is also important to clear away any debris in and around the system.

HVAC Tips For Christmas

It's that time of the year when the heating and venting aspects of your HVAC unit has a big job, which is to keep you warm and toasty so you can enjoy your eggnog in comfort. Ensuring your HVAC system is in excellent condition for the holidays is important whether you are hosting a big holiday party or enjoying the day with your family spending time with each other. Royal Heating & Air wants to make sure your home is ready for Christmas no matter your plans. Here are five HVAC tips brought to you by the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks.

- Change out the air filter. It is important to check the air filter one a month and change as necessary. A clogged and dirty filter can overwork your HVAC system, which could make it difficult to pump out more heat. A severely clogged filter could even become a fire hazard.

- Be aware of the vents. Vents should never be covered, even if they're located beneath windows where drapes and couches are regularly placed. When moving furniture around to make room for Christmas decorations or for holiday parties, be aware of floor, wall and ceiling vents, and not to block any of them.

- Clean up needles. Pine needles can make their way just about anywhere, including the vents. Clean up daily around your Christmas tree if and when needles start to drop. That is the best way to keep your home tidy and pine needles out of your vents.

- Find a safe place for your tree. It is important to find a place for your tree that is far away from any heating source. Putting a tree too close to a heat source not only dries out the tree faster, it's also a fire risk.

- Make use of alternative heating sources. Make your home nice and toasty by using alternative heat sources to give your HVAC system a bit of a break. If you have a fireplace, get cozy and make good use of it. Test out new holiday cookie recipes and use the stove top and oven to create some heat while also filling up on delicious holiday treats.

Merry Christmas From Royal Heating & Air

Happy Holidays from Lake of the Ozarks' best HVAC repair company! If your home isn't feeling cozy this holiday season, call Royal Heating & Air at 573-480-4313. With the cold winter season in full swing, it is important to keep our furnaces in tip top shape.

Why Is The Furnace Not Turning On?

We are officially in the cool season and many of us are constantly running our furnaces. When your home starts to feel a little chilly and you expect the furnace to kick on and it doesn't, it may be a bit concerning. Your Lake of the Ozarks heating and cooling company is here to help you if you find that your furnace isn't turning on. Here are five troubleshooting tips to get your house warm again. Just remember, Royal Heating & Air is here to help with all your heating and cooling needs, and we even offer 24/7 emergency service! 

1. Check The Thermostat

The thermostat should be one of the first things you check if your furnace doesn't kick on. Make sure that it is set to "heat" rather than "cool" and that it's set to a higher temperature than the room temperature. If you have a programmable thermostat, make sure that the time and date are correct, as well as the a.m. and p.m. settings. Make sure the batteries are working and that it is firmly attached to the wall. 

2. Switches & Breakers

Sometimes, all your furnace needs to do in order for it to start working again is for it to be turned on. All furnaces, no matter the age or manufacturer, have a switch that turns it on and off, and it could have accidentally been switched off. If that is not the issue, check the circuit breaker or fuse box to make sure everything is switched on and functioning. In addition, make sure that the front panel covering the blower motor is securely fastened - there's a push-in switch under it that must be fully depressed for the furnace to operate. 

3. Change The Filters

Dirty filters are the most common cause of furnace issues. Dust and dirt restrict airflow, and if the filter gets too clogged, the heat exchanger will overheat and shut off too quickly, which results in your house not warming up. It is important to make sure to regularly check the filter and replace as necessary. A clean filter is vital, as it reduces the efficiency of the furnace and shortens its life. 

4. Check The Pilot Light

Check to make sure that the pilot light is lit. If gas or propane flow to the pilot light is interrupted, even for a moment, the light can go out and will need to be re-lit.  It's also important to make sure your gas is on. Just like the switches, someone may have turned off the gas valve and forgot to turn it back on. The easiest way to check to see if the gas supply is on is to check another gas appliance in your house, such as your stove. If you have no gas, call the gas company or fill your propane tank. 

5. Look For Blocked or Leaky Ducts

Blocked or leaky ducts can restrict airflow and make your furnace work harder than it needs to heat up your home and in some cases, your home will still feel chilly. Make sure the registers are open and clean. Afterward, check the ducts and ensure there are no leaks.

At Royal Heating & Air, we want to make sure you and your family stays warm this holiday season. If your furnace is not working properly, call us at 573-480-4313. We offer free estimates and 24/7 emergency service.

Humidifier Or Dehumidifier... Or Both?

Now that we have finally made it into the cold season, you may have been experiencing a few of the side effects, such as dry, itchy skin and chapped lips. The winter season can sometimes take a toll on our bodies and even our homes as well. The same thing can happen during the summer months as well. The extra moisture in the air not only warps wood furniture, it can also sometimes cause asthma. Luckily, there's something that you can do to help make it more comfortable in your home. Your Lake of the Ozarks heating and cooling company explains the difference between dehumidifiers and humidifiers and if they're a right fit for your home. 


Dehumidifiers are typically used during the summer months when the air is warm and humid. They decrease the amount of moisture in the air, which helps controls mildew and mold from growing in your home, which could keep headaches and allergies at bay. If you experience respiratory issues like asthma, then installing a dehumidifier could help. 


Humidifiers are typically used during the winter months when the air is cold and dry. They increase the amount of moisture in the air, which helps keep skin from drying out. In addition to keeping skin moisturized, humidifiers help control nasal congestion and allergies. 

Finding Balance

When the humidity levels in your home get out of balanced, the first place you might notice it is your personal health. Dry air can promote skin issues like eczema, psoriasis and chapped lips, while too much moisture in the air can cause mold and mildew to grow, which could cause respiratory issues and other serious illnesses. In addition to personal health issues, over time, these conditions could cause damage to your home. Dry air could cause some types of wood to crack and split, while humid air could cause it to warp. If your home has an extensive mold issue, you may have to replace all the infested material to make sure it is completely gone from the premises. 

Which is right for your home?

If the levels of humidity in your entire home is off, it may be best to install a whole home system. However, if the problem is just in a certain area or room, smaller or portable units may be the right solution for your home. The best way to figure out the humidity levels in your home is to install a hygrometer, which reads the percentage of air in your home. 

Gain Balance With Royal Heating & Air

Typically, your HVAC system will control the amount of humidity in your home. However, sometimes it needs a little help. Luckily, with the help of dehumidifiers and humidifiers, your home can give you comfort no matter the season. If you need help figuring out if your home needs a humidifier or dehumidifiers, call the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks. Royal Heating & Air can let you know the proper type and size of unit that you need in your home. To schedule an appointment, call 573-480-4313 today!

Tips To Keep You Warm This Winter

It's the time of the year that we heavily rely on our HVAC units to keep us warm. However, it can sometimes be costly to constantly have the furnace running. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to help make sure that your HVAC unit is running efficiently. Royal Heating & Air offers five hot tips to keep you out of the cold this winter.

1. Change Filters Regularly

Having a clean filter in your furnace is important in making sure that your HVAV unit is working properly. A dirty filter can make your unit work harder than it needs to in order to heat your home. It is a good idea to check the filter every month and change as necessary. There are a lot of things that affect how often you need to change the filter, such as pets.

2. Clean Vents

Similar to dirty filters, it is important to make sure vents are cleaned regularly. Dirt can build up in the vents, causing the furnace to have to work harder to heat the home. In addition to keeping the vents clean, it is also important to make sure there is nothing blocking them. During the holidays, you may be rearranging rooms to fit a Christmas tree or to make room for a holiday party, so make sure you don't move the furniture over a floor vent, or in front of a wall vent.

3. Clear The Ducts

Pollutants from both outside and inside your home get trapped in your air ducts. It is important to get them cleaned, not only for the health of your HVAC unit, but also for you and your family's health. Bacteria builds up in the ducts, which could cause a lot of issues when not cleaned. UV lights are a great way to keep your ducts clean without a lot of work. 

4. Check For Leaks

Leaks in your home can waste a lot of precious, hot air during the winter months. If your home is feeling a little chilly, even with the furnace on, check for leaks. Feel around the edge of the window and door frames, as well as your ducts. If you find leaks around the windows and doors, seal them with caulk. If there is a draft under the windows and doors, weatherstripping can block it. If you need help with sealing your ducts, call the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks

5. Winter Maintenance

It is important to have your HVAC system serviced regularly to make sure it is in tip-top shape. Maintenance can help you save a little bit this holiday season, as you can catch potential issues before they become big problems. It is recommended to have a professional service your unit twice a year. Once in the spring and once in the fall. These are great times for maintenance, as you will be able to catch issues before you need to use your HVAC system. 

Don't Be Caught In The Cold!

Now that it's getting colder, it is important to make sure that your furnace is working properly. If you need to schedule an appointment with a professional HVAC repair company at the Lake of the Ozarks, call Royal Heating & Air at 573-480-4313. We can make sure that you are not caught without heat this season.

Get Your Home Ready For Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is coming up quickly and many people are getting their homes ready for company. If you are expecting people, there are a few things that you are probably doing to get ready, such as cooking a delicious turkey dinner and making room for all of your guests. However, it is important to remember your HVAC unit during this time, as you want to make sure that your home is warm and inviting now that the weather is getting colder. The best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks offers three tips to make sure your house stays cozy this Thanksgiving. 

1. Keep Cool While Cooking

Thanksgiving is a day all about being thankful for what we have and eating a lot of turkey. If you are having guests over, you may be planning on a full day of cooking. When cooking for long periods of time, you can use fans to evenly distribute the air throughout the house. In addition, you can take advantage of the heat from your stove and oven and turn the thermostat down a couple of degrees.

2. Control The Temperature

When setting the thermostat for the day, consider all of the day's activities. How many people will be joining you and your family for dinner? If you are expecting a lot of company, it may be wise to set the thermostat at a lower temperature. Not only will it help your utility bill, but it will also make your guests feel more comfortable. 

3. Don't Block Vents

If you are needing to make room for all of your guests, you may be moving furniture around. It is important to remember not to block the vent while rearranging your living space. If the vents are blocked, your furnace will have to work harder to keep your house at a comfortable level. 

Keep Warm This Holiday Season

Royal Heating & Air wants to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving. At Lake of the Ozarks best heating and cooling company, we are thankful for all of our friends, family and clients. If your house is feeling a bit chilly this season, call a professional HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks. Whether you need your unit to be serviced, repaired or replaced, Royal Heating & Air is here for you. To schedule your appointment, call 573-480-4313.

Benefits Of Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication

Ductwork is an important part of your HVAC system, so it should be designed for maximum efficiency and longevity. One of the best ways to achieve this, and more, is to have custom sheet metal ductwork fabricated for your home. Having ductwork tailored to your home and HVAC system has a number of benefits, however, without professional help, you could encounter ongoing problems down the road. Royal Heating & Air is here to help explain the benefits of custom ductwork in your home. 

Why Get Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication?

The main benefit of having your ductwork customized to your home and HVAC system is knowing that this critical component has been hand-crafted by trained specialists. The ductwork in your home has to carry all of the heated or cooled air throughout your home. Having a good product that was custom made for your home is a great way to make sure that it works well. 

Benefits of Custom Ductwork 

Ductwork carries heated and cooled air throughout your home, if there are leaks or cracks, your HVAC system will have to work harder to cool or heat your home. When a professional installs custom ductwork, you will know that it will distribute air evenly to all rooms. It will also help your HVAC system to achieve its highest level of energy efficiency and reduce wear and tear on your system because it is not having to work harder to cool or heat your home. In addition, custom ductwork will also help improve your indoor air quality.

Custom Made For Your Home

When you hire a professional to create custom ductwork, they will create it to be perfectly suited for your HVAC system and your home. Your fabricator will ensure that your home receives the proper air load. They will also create the ducts to have the straightest route from your air handler to a given room. If your ductwork has too many turns, it can make it harder for your system to deliver the necessary air flow to your living spaces. When a professional creates custom ductwork for your home, they will ensure a matching return duct for every supply register. Having matching supply and return ducts helps optimize the circulation in your home. The most important part of custom sheet metal ducts is that they will be properly sealed, which prevents air loss, which will help increase energy efficiency and indoor air quality, and puts less stress on your system.

Royal Heating & Air Creating Custom Ductwork For Homes

There are many professional heating and cooling companies at the Lake of the Ozarks, however, what sets Royal Heating & Air apart from the rest is our custom sheet metal fabrication. If you would like custom ductwork installed in your home, contact your professional Lake of the Ozarks HVAC company at 573-480-4313. We can help increase the efficiency of your HVAC system and help keep your home warm all winter long.

All About Heat Pumps!

Heat pumps are an efficient way to heat and cool your home. Your Lake of the Ozarks heating and cooling company can help you keep your house warm all winter long by installing a heat pump in your home. Royal Heating & Air takes a closer look at how heat pumps work and the different types available.

How Heat Pumps Work

A heat pump is a system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. They usually consist of two parts: an indoor unit called an air handler and an outdoor unit, similar to a central air conditioner, that's referred to as the heat pump. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat around your home. During the winter months, the heat pump will extract heat from the cool outdoors and transfer it inside to warm your home. During the summer months, it will reverse the direction and remove the heat from your home to cool it down. Because they transfer heat rather than generate it, heat pumps can be a cheaper alternative than conventional heating or cooling appliances.

Types of Heat Pumps

There are several types of heat pumps, but the two most common are the air-to-air and the geothermal. They collect heat from either the air or the ground and they concentrate it for use inside to either heat or cool your home.

Bryant Heat Pumps

Evolution Series Heat Pumps
Bryant® Evolution® Series heat pumps offer the highest quality efficiency and performance available. From the 2014 ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient Model, the Evolution® Extreme, to the variable-speed and 1- and 2-stage units, you can count on SEER ratings of at least 19 and the option of total control with an Evolution® Connex® control.

Should I Cover My AC Unit This Season?

During autumn, most of us forget about our AC units, as we are no longer using them. However, there are still many things you need to do to take care of them in order for your system to be in good condition next spring. It's important to keep your unit clear of leaves and other debris during the fall. In addition, the winter season could cause damage with ice and snow. At this point, you may be thinking that it would be easier to keep your unit clean if you covered it. Royal Heating & Air has gathered the pros and cons of covering your AC unit during the off-season.

Pros of Covering

- Having your air conditioner covered during the fall can prevent leaves, yard waste, sticks and other debris from getting stuck inside. 

- During the winter, a cover can protect your unit from falling ice. Falling ice can cause a lot of damage to your AC unit that could require costly repairs. 

- A cover could also keep the coils cleaner so it runs more efficiently the next time the AC unit is turned on. 

- Covers prevent water from resting directly on the coils and freezing, which could damage them.

Cons of Covering 

- Covers can create the perfect shelter for furry critters. Squirrels, raccoons and rodents seek shelter during the cooler months. If they use your covered AC unit as shelter, they could cause extensive damage to the electrical wiring and other important parts. 

- Although covers prevent water from getting in the AC unit, sometimes covers can create moisture causing mold to grow inside it. When you cover the entire unit, moisture can be trapped inside by creating a high humidity environment as the sun beats down on it.

Should The AC Unit Be Covered?

In the end, deciding to cover it is completely up to you, as there are both advantages and disadvantages to covering your outside unit. On the plus side, your AC unit is kept clean and free of debris. However, if you cover your unit, you run the risk of having critters taking shelter in it. Please note that if you have a heat pump versus an air conditioner, you should never cover it because heat pumps work all year long. In addition, make sure you remember to remove the cover before turning it on again. If you turn on your AC unit with the cover on, you run the risk of burning up your unit. 

Royal Heating & Air

Royal Heating & Air is here for all of your Lake of the Ozarks heating and cooling needs. Whether you are needing a new HVAC system or an upgrade, you can count on Royal Heating & Air. Although the weather this fall has been beautiful, the cold winter season is just around the corner.

5 Energy Efficiency Tips For Halloween

Halloween is quickly approaching. This is a great day to have some fun with friends and family. From tricking or treating to scary movies, there are many ways to celebrate Halloween at the Lake of the Ozarks. Whether you are staying in and passing out candy or you are hosting a Halloween party, your heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks has five energy efficiency tips for this spooky day. 

1. Keep The Door Closed

The best way to keep the heat inside is to keep your door closed. Opening and closing your door for trick or treaters can let out a lot of heat. When the streets begin to fill with little ghosts, witches and ghouls, instead of constantly opening the door, you can make sure your furnace doesn't work overtime by passing out candy outside. Grab a blanket, jacket and chair and greet the kids on the driveway.  The weather is looking good so far for Halloween, so gather a few friends and enjoy the cool, fall evening together. After a successful night, you can come inside and enjoy your warm house!

2. Use Candles In Pumpkins

After spending time carving your pumpkin, you'll want the right lighting to set the mood. There are many different ways to light a pumpkin. However, the most energy efficient way is with a traditional candle, as it doesn't use any electricity or energy. If you decide to use a candle in your pumpkin, there are a few things you need to be aware of though. Make sure you keep all flammable objects away, such as dried hay and corn husks, which are often used in Halloween decorations. If your pumpkin will be outside, make sure to keep the leaves cleared away. In addition, it is important to make sure to extinguish the flame before going to bed so it is not lit all night.

3. Turn Off Decorations

After the night's festivities are over, remember to turn off or unplug any decorations that use energy.  Leaving these decorations on throughout the night consumes a lot of energy and can result in an increase in your utility bill. 

4. Light It Up

There are many different ways you can save energy and make the night a bit more safe for the kids. Make your walkway safer for trick or treaters by using solar lights to mark your driveway. Solar power lights collect energy throughout the day and shine brightly at night without using any energy. Plus, you can get creative and use them as part of your Halloween decorations. Luminarias are also a good way to light up a path and save energy. Fill the bottom of a white paper bag with a little bit of sand, place a small candle inside and light it up. You will have a beautifully lit path that is also festive! 

5. Keep It Cool

If you are throwing a Halloween party, you are probably doing some cooking and baking to make sure your guests have food and treats. Do yourself (and your guests) a favor and turn the thermostat down by a couple of degrees. Don't let it get too warm in your home and take advantage of the extra heat provided by your appliances and all of your guests. Turning your thermostat down beforehand will help keep your guests comfortable and it will help you save energy. 

Have A Safe And Spooky Halloween!

Royal Heating & Air wishes everyone a Happy Halloween! Hopefully, with these tips, you can save energy and have some fun. If your HVAC unit needs to be serviced before it gets too cold, make sure that you call your Lake of the Ozarks HVAC repair company at 573-480-4313.  From maintenance to installing new units, Royal Heating & Air is here for all your HVAC needs.

Is Your Furnace Not Blowing Warm Air? Royal Heating & Air Can Help!

Although it was beautiful this last weekend, the cold weather will be hitting the Lake area soon. When you turn on your furnace and it starts blowing cold air, you probably will not be happy. Luckily, your Lake of the Ozarks HVAC repair company is here to help your home stay warm all winter long. Royal Heating & Air offers three tips for when your furnace stops blowing warm air. 

1. Change The Furnace Filter

If your furnace blows warm air, then blows cold air, and then stops blowing air completely, this could be the result of an overheated furnace. Furnaces have a safety control that will shut the burners off, however, the furnace fan will remain on to cool the furnace down to a safe level. Overheating furnaces can be caused by a dirty filter blocking the airflow, causing the furnace to run longer to heat your home until it overheats. It is important to replace your filter immediately, as constant overheating could cause damage to your furnace's heat exchanger. 

2. Check The Thermostat

Are you setting your thermostat, but your home isn't staying warm? If your furnace is constantly running, but blowing cold air, you may have your thermostat on the wrong setting. Double check to make sure the thermostat is set to "auto" instead of "on." If the thermostat is set to on, the furnace fan will constantly run, even if the furnace isn't heating the air. When the thermostat is switched to auto, the furnace will only blow warm air. 

3. Pilot Light Is Out

If the furnace is blowing cold air, the pilot light may be out. Check out these three solutions:

1. Relight the pilot light. If it stays on, you're in the clear! 

2. If the pilot light won't relight, ensure that gas is flowing into the furnace. Make sure that the gas valve is turned on. If it is, check to see if the pilot light is clean. If it is dirty, clean it to allow gas to come through. 

3. If the pilot light comes on, but won't stay on, there may be an issue with the thermocouple. Royal Heating & Air can identify the issue and get it up and running again.

How To Avoid Your Furnace Not Working On The First Cold Day

Now that autumn is here the nights and mornings are getting a bit chilly. Although you may not have switched your furnace on yet, you may be thinking about doing it soon. Now's the perfect time to contact your HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks for a quick routine service. As the Lake area cools down, you do not want to be stuck without a furnace. Having a Lake of the Ozarks' HVAC company service your unit before the start of the season can help ensure you don't freeze on the first cold night of the season.

Importance Of Furnace Maintenance

Your furnace doesn't just regulate the temperature inside your home, it also affects the indoor air quality. In addition, it also has a direct impact on your utility bills. A furnace that is maintained and serviced regularly often performs better and is more energy efficient, which could help reduce the costs of operation. If you have turned your furnace on, either for the season or just to make sure it turns on, and it seems to be working properly, you may think you don't need service. However, this is not always the case. A furnace could still heat your home, yet have mechanical issues that are not visible. If these issues go unrepaired, they will only get worse. Other parts could work overtime, making up for the work not being done by the broken part. However, the strain of this could lead to your whole unit breaking down.
