New Year’s Resolutions for your HVAC

New Year's is just around the corner, which means it's time to write those New Year's Resolution lists! It's a fun activity that helps start the year with purpose and goals to pursue. Usually resolutions are about health, finances, and good general habits... But what about your HVAC system? Royal Heating & Air is bringing you some great resolutions for 2022. Get ready to have the best heating and cooling at the Lake of the Ozarks

Do a Deep Clean

Doing a deep clean throughout your home can help give you a fresh start and make the new year feel even newer. With a clean house and a fresh outlook, you'll be unstoppable! Part of your deep clean this year should be your HVAC system. After all, the air you breathe inside your home is filtered through your HVAC system over and over again. If your ducts are full of dust, dirt, dead bugs, and even mice, then just imagine what you're actually breathing. 

It's a good idea to get your HVAC ductwork cleaned professionally at least every 5 years. If you have allergies or asthma, then it might be a good idea to get them cleaned more often - as much as necessary. One incredible way to keep your HVAC system free from bacteria and viruses is to install an HVAC UV Light System! These systems prevent pathogens from reproducing so they can't spread and get you sick. It works constantly in the background, giving you cleaner air and peace of mind. Royal Heating & Air can install one for you, just give us a call to learn more!

Another simple way to make sure the air in your home is as clean as possible is to regularly change your air filters. Air filters should be changed according to their type and amount of use, but on average filters need to be changed every 30 to 90 days. Having a clean air filter is crucial to maintaining good indoor air quality. If your air filter is dirty, then your system will have a hard time pulling clean air through it. This can negatively affect your system's efficiency as well as your immune system, making it harder for your body to fight off infection. Check your air filter every month to make sure it hasn't accumulated too much dust and debris.

Don't forget outside! Check your outdoor unit to make sure there aren't any leaks, damage from storms or animals, bad smells, or loud noises coming from the unit. It's also important to make sure the unit is clear from any debris like dead leaves, snow, fallen branches, etc. We recommend that there should be at least a 3-foot clearance around the entire unit.

Improve Efficiency 

Efficiency isn't just a popular buzz word when it comes to your HVAC system. High efficiency saves you money in the short-term and the long-term. In the short-term, your energy bill will be lower if your system is running at it's best instead of struggling to keep up because it's having issues. In the long-term, your HVAC system will typically last longer if it has been able to operate at top efficiency for its whole life. Your units may need to be replaced earlier than expected if they haven't been well cared for during their use. 

To improve efficiency, make sure your airflow is at its best. Check to see if air is escaping through gaps and cracks in your ductwork. On average, about 20-30% of air that flows through air ducts escapes through cracks in the ductwork. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, “Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent.” This could be a great way to save on energy and have a more comfortable home in 2022. 
If you haven't already, you should also consider a programmable thermostat. Not only are they convenient, but they are also cost-effective. Programmable thermostats allow you to easily control the temperature of your home around the clock, whether you’re home or away. Smart thermostats provide energy savings by learning your unique schedule and temperature preferences and adapting to them.

Buying a New HVAC System – The Answers to All Your Questions!

A good HVAC system can make or break your home comfort. Imagine sweltering summers with no air conditioning, or frigid and icy winters with no heat... Missouri weather can be brutal and you need a great system to keep up with it. If yours is struggling and it's time for a new one, or you're building a new house altogether, Royal Heating & Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks and we are here to help! In today's blog, we're answering common questions when it comes to buying a new HVAC unit. Keep reading to find out! 

Should I Replace All the HVAC Equipment at Once?

If only part of your system goes out, it's possible that you won't have to replace the entire system. However, we recommend that when you replace one, it can be a good idea to replace both. Typically, AC units and furnaces are installed at the same time. That means if one goes out, it won't be long before the other one wears out too. If you are spending money to replace part of the unit, you deserve to have the peace of mind that your entire system is updated and running efficiently! You will also save money by only having technicians come out once instead of twice. Plus, in the long run, you'll save money with improved efficiency all around.

What Size System Do I Need?

Determining the right size for your HVAC system is important. If you buy a system that is too large for your home, you'll be wasting money. But, if you buy one that's too small, it won't keep your home at a comfortable temperature. You want to buy one that's just right! One way is to determine the proper size for your unit is to determine how many BTUS of heating and tons of AC you will need. You can figure that out by using the square footage of your home. There are several useful charts that can help you factor the right BTUS for your home's square footage. If you are between sizes, we recommend going up in size. You can also give your local HVAC expert a call: 573-480-4313. We would be happy to help you determine what size system would be right for your home!

How Long Does Installation Take?

Each home and situation is different, so we recommend that you get a specific quote to determine an estimated timeframe for installation. After you find the right unit for your home, we determine whether or not we need to order the system or if we already have it in stock. The actual installation time varies depending on the home's specifics and what is needed to install the unit. For example, will the system need new ductwork also? Installation in homes with ductwork already installed typically takes a full day. However, if we need to add the ductwork, vents, and other HVAC equipment, it could take longer. On existing homes, the old unit has to be removed before the new one can be installed, so it could take up to a couple days for the entire process. There are a lot of variables! Give us a call and we can help evaluation your situation and give you an accurate quote.

What is a SEER Number?

SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. It is a measurement of an air conditioner's cooling capacity to the power input. It is a rating to show how efficient the system will perform and it is given by the manufacturer. When you purchase a unit, typically the higher the SEER rating the more efficient the unit will be. Always choose the higher SEER rating when given a choice.

How Do I Qualify for Rebates?

Rebates change from year to year, so always ask before purchasing your unit to see if it qualifies. Most rebates only qualify on existing homes and not for rentals or new construction. We can help you navigate through all your questions before purchasing your next HVAC unit.

Should I Switch to a Heat Pump? 𝘍π˜ͺ𝘯π˜₯ π˜–π˜Άπ˜΅!

Have you heard that heat pumps could be more effective and efficient, but you're not sure if it's the right choice for you? Royal Heating and Air is the best HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks, and we have the answers for you! For some, installing a heat pump could make a big positive impact on your energy costs and system efficiency. For others, it might be best to keep their current system. Keep reading to find out which group you're in! 

Heat Pumps, Explained

Heat Pumps are all-in-one heating and air conditioning systems. They are unique from a traditional furnace in that way – they can also be used for cooling! Basically, heat pumps transfer heat from one place to another. When they're operating to heat your home, they transfer heat energy from outside (from the air, the ground, or water) to the interior of your home. When a heat pump is operating to cool your home, it's transferring heat from inside your home, circulating it over cooling coils, and blowing the cooled air back into your house (similar to how a traditional air conditioner works). 

PROS: Why You SHOULD Get a Heat Pump

A great benefit to using a heat pump is that they are an energy-efficient way to both heat and cool your home. This is because of the way they function, by drawing heat from the environment as a source of renewable energy. Also, having one unit to service instead of both an air conditioner and a furnace could help cut costs over time.

You can also combine a heat pump with a furnace for a hybrid heat system in climates that get below freezing regularly and for long periods of time.

CONS: Why You Might NOT Want a Heat Pump

Some drawbacks to a heat pump are that they are working year-round and can wear out more quickly than an air conditioner. Again, heat pumps are doing the job of both the air conditioner and the furnace.

You may also notice that the system seems like it is always running, or that the air coming through the vent does not feel hot. This is because heat pumps provide a more constant flow of warm air over time, keeping your home at a constant temperature.

Heat Pump Maintenance Info.

To keep your heat pump happy, there are a few steps you’ll want to take...

Keep the thermostat set at a constant temperature. Frequently changing it could put an extra burden on your unit. If you do change the temperature throughout the day, try to limit it to twice a day. For example, when you leave work and when you return home.

Choose a temperature range that is manageable for your system – above 65 degrees in the summer and below 70 in the winter. Your system may have difficulty keeping up and could cause a frozen coil or condensation in the home in the winter.

Keep your heat pump as clean as possible. Remove snow build-up, ice, and any debris accumulating on or around the unit. Blockages can cause the system to overwork and begin to malfunction.

Schedule regular maintenance with Royal Heating & Air to ensure your heat pump is working efficiently. Your unit should be checked once a year at a minimum. It’s best to have us come out every season to ensure it is ready for the changing temperatures.

Pricing for Heat Pumps vs. Traditional Systems

To compare pricing on heat pumps and traditional HVAC systems, you have to consider several factors to know which one will cost you more in the long run. It's not just about upfront cost, it is also about efficiency and what it costs to run each type of unit where you live. Here in Missouri, that can be tricky. If you live somewhere that often has extreme heat and rarely gets below freezing, the heat pump is a no brainer.  But if you have more days below freezing days than above 90 degrees, then a traditional HVAC system may make more sense. In Missouri we get quite a mix. So another consideration is whether you need to replace the heating OR cooling part of your system... Or both. Because a heat pump can work as both a heating and cooling system for your home, it may be more cost-effective (especially in the short-term) to get a heat pump for your home. 

Best HVAC at the Lake of the Ozarks

Royal Heating & Air is the best heating and cooling company at the Lake of the Ozarks. We know all about heat pumps and whether or not one might be right for your home. So if you are considering installing a heat pump, we can schedule a time to evaluate your home’s heating and cooling needs and determine what is best for you. We are the king of comfort and are always on your team to provide for all your HVAC needs. We can't wait to help!

Make This Season Healthier with a UV Light System

It's about this time of year that everyone starts coming down with "a bug". Whether it's just a cold or actually the flu, no one likes getting sick. Royal Heating & Air has a great solution to help you stay as healthy as possible this season - Ultraviolet (UV) lights for your HVAC system! Today we're talking about how a UV light system works and why it's beneficial for your home and your health. Keep reading to learn more! 

What Does Ultraviolet Light Do? 

Ultraviolet (UV) light destroys the pathogens it shines on by deactivating their ability to multiply. That's right, simply shining UV light on bacteria and viruses can prevent them from replicating and overwhelming your immune system, making you sick. No harsh chemicals! 

UV Light for Coils

There are two types of UV lights available for your HVAC system. The first kind focuses on the components that are most prone to growing mold and mildew or other allergens and contaminants. The coils in your HVAC system have condensation that drips into a pan. This creates a humid, dark place... The perfect environment for mold and other harmful materials to grow. When air is circulated in your house through your HVACs ductwork, those germs get spread around and can reach every part of your home. By directing UV light at the coils with the proper intensity, those germs are killed and prevented from multiplying or spreading. In addition to providing cleaner air, your HVAC will also be more effective because the coils will not have buildup. This greater efficiency not only helps reduce your overall energy consumption, but it can also help extend the life of your HVAC system.

UV Light for Air Ducts

The second type of UV light for your HVAC is designed to focus on the air in your air ducts and to sterilize the air as it passes through. The positioning and intensity of the light can make a huge difference in its effectiveness. You will want to rely on a highly rated HVAC company. We will evaluate your home first to see if it is well-suited for a UV light. Then we'll handle the installation to make sure you get great results - and healthier air!

How Much of a Difference Does UV Light Make?

There are several benefits to having a UV light system installed in your HVAC. Most importantly, it helps increase the air quality in your home and could keep you healthier by destroying allergens, bacteria, and viruses before they cause issues. It makes such a big difference in air quality for our customers, that many notice immediately when the bulbs burn out and need to be replaced. 

What Substances Can UV Light Destroy? 

1) Allergens

If someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma, air quality is extremely important to their quality of life. A UV light system can significantly help with this issue by eradicating common allergens in the duct work. You should notice that it feels easier to breathe and your lungs are less constricted than before.

2) Smells

Not only does the UV light reduce the number of bacteria in the air, but it also reduces smells and odors. When bacteria, viruses, and mold grow in your HVAC system, it can start to smell bad. Think about the moldy food you found in the back of the refrigerator... gross. Having UV light working for you to keep the air ducts free from contaminants can help improve the smell in your home.

3) Sickness

Are your family members sick all the time? It may be due to a medical condition, but it also could be because of a buildup of bacteria, viruses, and mold in your duct work. Breathing in these pathogens every day is harmful to anyone's health. Your body may get tired of fighting off so many potential illness and infections and become more vulnerable. One sleepless night or one stressful day could be all it takes for your immune system to be overloaded and no longer able to keep up. A UV light system can remove these harmful materials from your air ducts and ease the burden on your body.

Best HVAC Company at the Lake 

Want to give your immune system the best chance to stay healthy this cold & flu season? Give Royal Heating & Air a call to install a UV Light System in your home. It can help improve your HVAC efficiency and the air quality in your home! We can also help check-in on your furnace to make sure everything is working the way it should before it gets too cold.

We're Thankful for the Lake, Health, and YOU!

Happy Thanksgiving week! In the spirit of tradition, today we are talking about what Royal Heating & Air is thankful for as a company. We have been in business for 10 years and we love serving our community and hearing from you all. Keep reading to learn more about why we're grateful, how many things there are to be grateful for at the Lake, and how much we love our customers... That's right, you!

Being at the Lake

One of the things we're thankful for is our home - the Lake of the Ozarks. This community is incredibly strong, giving, and fun! The #LakeLife means so much more to us than enjoying being out on the water. To us, it means community that can count on each other... The ability to grow as a business and develop as a leader with multiple training, educational, and networking opportunities... And SO much more. We love being the your local HVAC company at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Our Health & Safety Improving Services

We are an HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning) company, but we are also so much more than that. We are grateful for our talented technicians that can bring the additional services you need in your home for a safer, more healthy lifestyle. Just a few of those services include a whole-home humidifier (to keep your airways healthy and your valuables from drying out and cracking), ultraviolet light systems (added to your ductwork to kill bacteria for better indoor air quality), and even custom sheet metal fabrication (to prevent air leaks and improve the efficiency of your home). We are here for you and love going above and beyond for our customers!


Speaking of our customers, we are most incredibly grateful for you. Without you, we wouldn't be as successful as we are, and we appreciate your business so much! When we hear things like the reviews below from our customers, we are grateful beyond words. Thank you!!

I absolutely recommend Royal Heating & Air! Our heater sounded like shoes in the dryer when we turned it on. On Monday they came and figured out the issue within minutes and ordered the part on-site.

About the Owners 

Owners Tom and Katie Royal are high school sweethearts and have two beautiful children, Ryan and Hallie. As natives to the Lake of the Ozarks, Tom and Katie are proud to be involved in the community... volunteering, helping customers, and growing as people and as a business. Royal Heating and Air is a faithful member of a local chapter of Business Networking International, which works to promote and generate referrals for other lake area businesses.

How We Got Started

Royal Heating and Air was started by the Royals in 2011 as a modest company based in their garage with no other employees and one service van. Tom had his first job in HVAC right out of high school, and then he went on to further his education and master the trade. Katie was still in college when they started Royal Heating and Air. She took care of the books and business startup/organization from her college apartment, while Tommy took care of running the business at home. It was their goal from the very beginning to bring truthful, trustworthy service to the lake area, and to be a company that truly cares about their customers. With that mindset, the company started to grow rapidly and never stopped! Today, Royal Heating and Air has 5 vans, 5 crew members plus Katie, and a commercial location in Camdenton.

How to Cut Heating Costs This Winter

With the price of gas going up, heating costs could also be going up for your home if your furnace is not powered by electric. Royal Heating & Air is the best heating company at the Lake of the Ozarks and we are always here to help you enjoy a comfortable and safe home all year long. We are also here to help you save on costs! Keep reading today's blog to learn some ways you can cut costs and save this season!

Use Supplemental Heat Sources

If you have an electric fireplace or a personal space heater, using that to help heat the room you're in could help you lower the costs of using the furnace this year. As the price of gas climbs, the cost of using an electric source of heat can be more beneficial. Just be sure to keep flammable items away from the heat source to prevent a fire. Also, be sure to install a carbon monoxide alarm so you stay healthy and safe. 

Additional mini tip: Burning candles can also help raise the temperature of a room in an emergency situation due to the ambient heat from the flame. Just be careful where you place it and don't forget to blow it out when you won't be able to supervise it for an extended amount of time. 

Maintenance Checks

Regular preventative maintenance can not only increase efficiency and lifespan, it also helps you discover and repair things before they lead to bigger problems, more expensive repairs, and potential outages. If you have not had your furnace serviced yet this year, we have HVAC technicians at the Lake of the Ozarks ready to help! 

Install a Programmable Thermostat

When you are at work or on vacation, or other times when you don’t need to keep the house so warm, lowering the thermostat can add up to significant savings. We recommend having a programmable thermostat installed. A programmable thermostat allows you to set your temperatures to adjust automatically for when you are typically home or away.  Properly used, you could save up to 12% in costs over the course of a year!

Keep Your Air Filter Clean

Air filters should be changed according to their type and amount of use, but on average filters should be changed every 30 to 90 days. Check your air filter every month to make sure it hasn't accumulated too much dust and debris. Having a clean air filter is crucial to maintaining good indoor air quality. It's also crucial for your HVAC system's efficiency. If your system is trying to pull air through a clogged or dirty filter, then it could be working harder than it needs to and costing you more money.
