Summer picnics, sunbathing in the afternoon, or a great game of baseball. These are the memories born each summer. But after a day of fun in the summer heat, or even in the middle of one, you and your family may want to take a break in your air conditioned Richmond Heights home. Our team at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists wants to be sure your air conditioner is ready and waiting when that time comes.
It is a good idea to have your air conditioning system checked out before the mercury rises. Our trained professionals are happy to come out to provide a multipoint inspection, basic cleaning, and a list of suggested repairs if needed. Being proactive about your air conditioning system can mean you will not have any unpleasant surprises when the weather gets really warm in Missouri.
If you have an older air conditioner and have racked up repair bills in past summers, it may be worth considering making an investment in a new unit. We carry the top brand names and have extensive experience in air conditioning installation.
New units are often more energy efficient than older ones, which means you can make up the purchase price in reduced energy bills. New air conditioners may also do a better job of dehumidifying your indoor air, keeping things dry and comfortable inside.

You probably do not think much about the air duct, or ductwork, system in your Richmond Heights, home. After all, it sits quietly behind your walls out of sight and, therefore, out of mind, as you go about your daily business. However, your air duct system operates like your house’s circulatory system, working tirelessly day and night taking cooled or heated air to every room in your home and returning air back to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
Unfortunately, many air duct systems are not working at peak efficiency in most homes, which means uneven temperature distribution, regular discomfort, and wasted energy. The professionals at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists want to help you fix that problem.
It is a good idea to have your air duct system inspected to identify where you might have leaks as well as where increased insulation may be needed. In addition, our trained professionals can help you balance the distribution of your heating and cooling with alternative solutions. These solutions work well if you have registers located in poorly located spots in a room or if the number of registers is unbalanced through your home.
By calling AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists at 314-567-5585, you will be taking the first step to increasing the comfort of your home as well as reducing your energy bills for the long term. Do not neglect your home’s circulatory system. Make the investment in a ductwork inspection, repair, and maintenance. Request air duct service online today.

If you live in Missouri, you know that reliable heating is critical in the colder months. High-efficiency boilers can be an excellent way to heat your Richmond Heights home, whether you rely on natural gas or heating oil as your source of energy.
If you use a residential boiler system and begin noticing things like deep rumbling noises or inconsistent heat, you may want to check your pilot light or thermostat. If you can’t see an easy fix, be sure to call our trained experts at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists. We would be happy to come out and inspect your boiler system for pressure valve malfunctions or other common problems and provide repair services.
However, if you are using an older boiler, say more than 10 years old, it may be worth it to purchase a new one. You will recoup much of your initial investment in energy savings. Studies show that older boilers may be only 50 percent efficient, wasting half the energy you purchase, while the best systems available today can be up to 98 percent efficient.
Call AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists at 314-567-5585 for more details. Our team can provide guidance on the best residential boiler for your home based on your local climate, the size of your residence, and your family’s unique needs. Request boiler service online today.
If you have regular battles over the thermostat setting in your house, you may want to consider investing in a ductless heating and cooling system for particular rooms in your Richmond Heights home. Ductless systems work by providing climate control to a particular room or space.
Since ductless systems do not use your Missouri home’s ductwork system, you can save the energy often lost while heated and cooled air travels from room to room via air ducts. In addition, only a small hole connecting the indoor and outdoor units is required in order to install a unit, which makes installations very straightforward.
Our team at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists recommends installing a ductless unit in spare rooms such as sun porches or attic bedrooms as well as in rooms where family members might prefer different temperatures. A ductless system can help balance heating and cooling throughout your home as well.
Compared with traditional heating and cooling systems, the upfront costs associated with a ductless may be a bit more. You will recoup some of the cost through reduced energy bills, so don’t let this prevent you from exploring this option if you are interested.
Call AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists at 314-567-5585 to gather additional information about ductless units to see if they might be right for your home. Request ductless system service online today.
When the mercury falls here in Missouri, you will want a reliable and functioning furnace to keep your home warm. If you happen to be building a new home or creating a large addition, you may be looking for the best heating solution to install. Owners of older homes may need to replace aging furnaces to gain efficiency or eliminate costly repairs.
Although furnaces have been around for a century, there are many different designs, fuel sources, and sizes available today. Sorting through all the features, price points, sizes, and designs can be overwhelming. Our team at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists can go over all the different furnace options available on the market today to help you make the best decision for your budget and lifestyle.
Our trained professionals can look at your Richmond Heights home’s size, design layout, and construction material, as well as the local climate, to recommend the optimum furnace for your situation. It’s important you select the proper sized furnace to generate enough heat on extremely cold days while not wasting energy on a regular basis.
Once you invest in a new furnace, it’s important to maintain it regularly to keep it up and running year after year. Solid maintenance will also help you extend the life of your new investment.

Heat pumps are an energy-efficient alternative to conventionally heating and cooling your Richmond Heights home. Instead of creating their own heat to warm up your home, heat pumps simply take heat from outside and pump it into your indoor space in the winter. During the hot summer months, the heat pump does the opposite: it pumps the heat from inside your home to outside, resulting in a cooler indoor climate.
Heat pumps are an efficient and cost-effective way to provide the heating and cooling you need in Missouri. In some cases, heat pumps may cost much less than what you would be paying to run a conventional heating and cooling system.
Talk with us at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists to learn about air-source heat pumps, which are the most common type of heat pump. These typically use much less electricity than is required by furnaces and baseboard heating options.
Although heat pumps were originally designed for homes in moderate climates, developments in technology have made heat pumps great options for homes in colder climates as well. Ask us about ductless, or mini-split, heat pumps. They are perfect for homes without ductwork.

Indoor Air Quality
As a society, most of us stay indoors the majority of the time. That’s why having good indoor air quality is more important than ever. Our professionals at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists want to be sure your Missouri home provides a healthy environment for you and your family. Our testing and remediation services can help you check your air quality and improve it.
Poor indoor air quality can result from a host of things including dust, pet dander, smoking, and viruses. In addition, cleaning products, paint, or carpet can release chemicals that can negatively affect indoor air quality.
Long-term exposure to poor air quality may mean increased health problems or daily discomfort. If you are struggling with fatigue, respiratory distress, or ongoing allergies, you may be subject to indoor air quality issues.
Our experienced professionals can test the quality of your Richmond Heights indoor air. If they discover potential issues, they may recommend things like cleaning your air ducts, changing your air filters, or installing an air purifier. They can also check for things like deadly carbon monoxide leaks.
Conventional heating systems such as radiators, baseboard heating, and furnaces consume a great deal of energy in Missouri. One reason is because these units need to be heated to a high temperature in order for the surrounding air to be brought to a comfortable temperature. For example, a radiator often needs to reach 150 degrees to provide room temperature heat.
AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists now offers a more energy-efficient alternative: radiant floor heating. In this system, an electric-based or water-based network is installed under your Richmond Heights home’s flooring. This system only needs to be heated to about 84 degrees to provide average heat to your living space.
Radiant floor heating is easy to run, simple to maintain, and eliminates much of the traditional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment typically needed in your home. This frees up space and gives you flexibility for innovative interior design.
Ideally, radiant floor heating is installed when you build a new home. If you are retrofitting a current home, you may incur significant installation costs as well as inconvenience as your flooring will need to be lifted up and perhaps replaced in order for this heating system to be added. Radiant floor heating will also increase the level of your home’s flooring.
Contact AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists at 314-567-5585 for more details. Our trained professionals can provide all the information for you to make an informed decision. Request radiant floor heating service online today.
You may have had to deal with the unfortunate cold shower or the inability to run your dishwasher or laundry at the time you wanted to do it. The hot water you wanted was simply not there. Today, your options range far and wide to be sure your hot water needs can be met. Two major types of residential HVAC water heater are on the market today: tank and tankless.
Tank water heaters are still the most common, particularly in older homes. These are the type that may have run out of hot water while in use in the past in your Missouri home. Generally, these are heated by electricity, oil, or gas.
On the other hand, tankless water heaters heat up water exactly when you want it, on demand, regardless of how much or how little you need. You are also freed from the necessity of continually heating a large tank of water in your Richmond Heights home. In addition to using traditional energy means to fuel these heaters, they can also utilize other alternative sources of energy such as geothermal, solar, and more.
When you are ready to update your home’s water heating solutions, whether it is a replacement, repair, or maintenance, our team at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists is always here for you—give us a call at 314-567-5585. Request water heater service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Have you ever envisioned imaginary dollar bills just floating out of your home when you think about cooling or heating rooms not in use? This is actually what figuratively happens when there are specific parts of your Richmond Heights home you don not use much but still heat and cool. Ideally, the rooms you are currently using are comfortable while the rest of your home is conserving energy. Up until recently, that was a difficult goal to achieve.
However, zone control systems are available today that allow you to do a better job of customizing your temperatures. Part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a zone control system allows you to operate several thermostats, each controlling the temperature of a different zone of your home. A zone control system automatically opens and closes the appropriate dampers to direct heating or cooling just where you want it in your Missouri home.
Our team at AL-DON Indoor Air Quality Specialists can provide more details and share the cost savings you can expect by installing a zone control system. Our trained professionals are well-versed in how to properly install, repair, and maintain a zone control system so it works effectively with your current HVAC system.
