Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of common questions that our clients ask us. If you need more information don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

I've heard that I'll save money with a heat pump. Is it true?

You will save money on your monthly heating bill, but the initial cost will be higher at the beginning. Heat pumps cost more to install, but their improved efficiency will mean less expenses over the lifetime of the unit.

How do I improve my home's air circulation and quality?

Believe it or not, the first step is quite easy – simply make sure your air filters have been changed and wipe down any vents. If this doesn't correct the problem, you'll probably need more advanced air quality services from Royals Heating and Air.

Why does my water heater make a popping sound?

A popping sound or water heater whining are not good signs and could indicate the presence of a mineral buildup in the lines. In addition to reducing water pressure, this could also cause unit failure, so call us for a professional analysis.

Should I leave the AC on or turn it off while I'm not at home?

Your AC should be programmed to be within 5 degrees of your desired set temperature when you leave your home. This way you save energy, and are able to maintain a cool home with minor adjustments to the thermostat when you arrive.
