Stop Summer Humidity in the House!

Summers in Missouri can be extremely hot and humid, which can cause a lot of discomfort in the house. Too much humidity can damage your HVAC, cause mold to grow, and affect your indoor air quality. Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC Company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here to help give you advice on how to control the humidity in your home this summer. Keep reading to learn more!

Use a Dehumidifier

If the house is humid, then there is a lot of moisture in the air that can cause issues. Using a dehumidifier can take some of the moisture out of the air so that allergens, mold, and other bad materials won't build up. They run quietly so that they don't disturb your daily activities. 

Allergen Reduction

Dehumidifiers reduce humidity levels. When the air inside your home is overly muggy in the summer months, it could be a sign that moist air is finding its way into your home. When your home has the proper humidity level, it is less hospitable to allergens such as dust mites, mold, and mildew. Dehumidifiers reduce irritation to your skin and your respiratory system, allowing you to breathe easier and feel comfortable in your home.

Mold Growth Prevention

A dehumidifier helps keep the moisture levels in your home low. Excessive moisture (that often occurs during the humid summer months) increases condensation on windows and walls, which leads to mold growth and has the potential to damage your home and your health. Moisture is required for mold to thrive; therefore, keeping your home at the proper humidity level is key in mold prevention. Using a dehumidifier reduces the possibility that mold will develop in your home on the walls, your furniture, your clothes, etc. Mold can also develop in your air conditioning system, so lowering the humidity levels can prevent that from happening and prevent you from breathing in contaminated air.

Lower Energy Costs

Dehumidifiers can aid in lowering your energy costs because they help your air conditioner run more efficiently. When the air is more humid, the AC unit must not only cool the air, but also remove moisture, which means it has to work harder. When your AC system is working harder to cool your home, it can cause your air conditioning system to wear out sooner, meaning you will need to replace and repair it more often. Also, when humidity levels are high, it can make the air in your home feel warmer than it really is. This may cause you to turn your cooling system up. By ensuring your home has the proper humidity level, you can reduce the amount of energy used and keep your air conditioning system working at a steady pace. This can save you money in energy and repair costs.

HVAC Maintenance

Because your HVAC system removes moisture from the air as it flows through your home, it's important to keep your system running as efficiently as possible. Royal Heating & Air can come out to your house and inspect your air conditioning unit to make sure everything is in good condition so that you have a comfortable, cool home all summer long!

Best HVAC at the Lake

Schedule service for your HVAC system regularly to make sure your system is performing at its optimal efficiency. This will help it last longer, prevent mold, and help keep the house comfortable even when it's hot and sticky outside. Ensure that your home is safe and comfortable by calling Royal Heating & Air today!

HVAC Red Flags to Watch for this Summer!

Summer is for enjoying the beautiful outdoors, barbecues, time with family, and fun in the sunshine. Worrying about air conditioning emergencies is the last thing you want to do. Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here to help you enjoy every season with effective maintenance, professional repairs, and quality HVAC products. Make sure you are prepared for a great summer by checking out these HVAC red flags that commonly show up during the summer months.

A Neglected System

While this may not seem like an obvious red flag, not maintaining your HVAC system throughout the year can cause serious issues. If you haven't had a professional technician check on your HVAC system in over a year, then this could be your first big red flag. HVAC systems tend to be the most overlooked appliance in a home, even though it could also be considered one of the most important. Many people don't think about their HVAC system until there is a major problem that require expensive repairs. Make sure your system is doing well and operating the way it's supposed to by calling Royal Heating & Air for a summer air conditioning check-up.

Freezing Coils

If your air conditioning is running in overdrive, then it could start to struggle. If the AC is overworked and set at a temperature that is too low, then the system could freeze up. Frozen coils should get immediate attention from a professional HVAC technician. If your system continues running with frozen coils, then the problem could get even worse and cause expensive damage. 

Unresponsive Unit

If you notice that your home feels warmer than usual despite being set at the same temperature, it's a good idea to check and make sure the outdoor unit is responding properly. If you find out that the unit isn't turning on, then you should take the following steps first: (1) make sure the thermostat is functioning, (2) make sure the settings are correct and the system is turned on, (3) double-check that the breakers are all on. If you have tried all these things and the outdoor unit still isn't responding, then that is another big red flag. It's time to call Royal Heating & Air!

Leaks and Clogs

Your HVAC system uses fluids to keep your home cool and comfortable. Sometimes those fluids can get clogged inside the condensate lines or leak from damaged areas on the unit. If your unit is leaking, then it's important that you call a local HVAC technician to come and inspect the unit as soon as possible. You can also help prevent this from becoming an issue in the first place by scheduling a maintenance check with Royal Heating & Air. We can help catch small flaws before they become serious, costly problems!

HVAC Repair at the Lake

If your air conditioning stops working this summer, call Royal Heating & Air! We are the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks and we are here to help you. You can also help stop damage from getting out of control by watching for red flags and scheduling regular HVAC maintenance.

Fun Ideas to Celebrate Father's Day 2020!

Father's Day is just around the corner! In about two weeks on June 21st, we will all be celebrating the great fathers in our lives. Royal Heating & Air has some great ideas and information to share with you to get ready for a great Father's Day celebration. Keep reading below and choose your favorite way to celebrate your dad!

Father's Day 2020

The celebration of Father's Day is always the third week of the month of June. This year, the date is June 21st, which also happens to be the first official day of summer! Being right after the summer solstice, Father's Day this year will be one of the longest days of the year with plenty of sunshine to enjoy the day.

Gone Fishing

Whether your dad is an avid fisherman or not, fishing with the family is a fun and peaceful activity to enjoy at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you live lakeside, this is a great activity to be able to spend time outside with the family for the day. But even if you don't live in a lakefront location, you can grab some poles and find a great fishing pier to spend the day together. The Old Farmer's Almanac even says it will be a great day for fishing!

Camp Out

June also happens to be National Great Outdoors Month, which makes camping the perfect Father's Day activity. You can go rugged and put your own tent together at a wooded camp site, or you can go luxury in a comfortable RV near other fun outdoor activities, like kayaking or hiking. Whatever your camping style, just get outside and have a great time together! Father's Day weekend is scheduled to experience a new moon, which means the stars will be extra bright. See how many constellations you can spot!

Fire Up the Grill

Is dad usually the one that does the grilling for the whole family? Take over his grilling duties for the day and treat him to a feast fit for a king! You can even try something new for a special meal. Try using a new rub or flavor profile like Jamaican Jerk. For dessert, grill half peaches and add a scoop of ice cream for a delicious summery treat.

Enjoy Time at Home

We've all probably spent more time at home lately than we usually do, but you don't have to be uncomfortable while you're inside. Find new fun things to do, and always stay cool and comfortable with professional service from Royal Heating & Air. We have the best air conditioning technicians at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we are here to help you! Give us a call for all your HVAC needs: 574-480-4313.
