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.

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!
