National offers a complete home energy assessment. Your home’s heating and cooling is like a body. All the components, from the main system, through the ducts and insulation, work together and when one area is lacking, the whole system fails. Our whole house performance assessment takes into account all the components.
Attics are often the most neglected area of a home, yet they are also the biggest source of energy loss. National has found that the older your home, the worse the situation. Attics may have no insulation, deteriorated insulation or even old newspapers used as insulation. If you’re looking for an easy way to improve your home’s energy efficiency, consider installing attic insulation.
Many homes and commercial buildings are lacking proper wall insulation. In some cases, it was installed improperly from the start. In other cases, it has settled over time, allowing gaps that leave in air or allow internal energy to leak out. We will analyze your current situation and let you know what you are facing and how it can be fixed.
You may not see them, but small cracks are hiding everywhere in most homes. As you try to heat or cool your home, these cracks allow the energy to silently seep outside, leaving you with an uncomfortable temperature and higher energy bills. Our air sealing experts can find those cracks and seal them.
The duct system in your home or business is subject to a great deal of stress. Over ninety percent of all duct systems have leaks that cause energy loss. National is one of the first HVAC companies in this area to offer Aeroseal duct sealing, one of the newest and most effective systems available.
Many HVAC companies press you into duct cleaning. At National, we have found that if your ducts are clogged, they do need cleaned, but the clog is a symptom of a greater problem. The dust and debris is coming in through gaps that need sealing. If the duct sealing is avoided, the problem of clogged ducts will continue.
Spray polyurethane foam, or SPF insulation, is a top-of-the-line insulation. It is one of the best products on the market in regards to efficiency. In many cases, this is the insulation of choice, but everybody’s needs are not the same and your home may need some other kind. National experts will evaluate your situation and advise you on what needs to be considered.
Cellulose insulation is one of the least expensive types of insulation. It is created from a combination of recycled newspaper mixed with borate, which is used to make the insulation fire-resistant. National uses a blower to fill the spaces between inner and outer walls to eliminate any air leaks.
Fiberglass insulation is one of National’s most popular insulation materials. Our customers like it because it is inexpensive, effective, and long-lasting. With proper installation, fiberglass can last longer than many other types currently available.

My house is drafty. Do I need new windows and doors?
When a house is drafty, the first things that many people think about are doors and windows. In fact, there are a handful of home energy upgrades that are much more cost-effective and beneficial than windows and doors (which can cost an arm and a leg but may not do much to improve your home's comfort). Insulation, air sealing and ducts sealing are all steps that should be taken first. Contact us to learn more.
Will insulation help keep my house cool in the summer?
Insulation does more than just keep your home warm in the winter. It also helps you cool your home more affordable in the summer, as well as offering a slew of other benefits: lower energy bills, reduced environmental impact, and more evenly distributed temperatures throughout the home.
Is all insulation created equal?
No! Not all insulation is equal. In fact, the insulation in many North American homes today was either improperly installed, or has settled over time, or has been compromised by air leakage. In many cases, existing insulation in homes performs so poorly that the house remains uncomfortable and energy bills are far higher than they should be. The professionals at National Heating & Cooling can assess your current insulation to determine whether it is performing, and guide you towards the best new attic, wall or basement insulation to achieve your goals while working within your budget.
My house is cold. Do I need a larger furnace?
There are many causes for a house being uncomfortably cold in the winter, and there are at least as many solutions. Typically, a cold house is a drafty house with significant air leakage and insufficient insulation. Sometimes it can be caused by a leaky duct system or a poorly performing furnace. The experts at National Heating and AC can help you determine the exact cause of discomfort in your home, and offer the most cost effective solution to solve it.
Do I Need my Ducts Cleaned?
Experts do not recommend duct cleaning as an effective way to improve indoor air quality. This is because the bulk of dust and other indoor air contaminants that enter your home through your duct system actually come from the crawlspace, attic and walls. Leaky ducts allow this dust to enter the duct system, where it is delivered into the buiding's living space. With Aeroseal, these leaks are eliminated, and any existing dust or debris existing within the duct system is eradicated through your HVAC system's filters. Cleaning your ducts is necessary only in a few extreme cases, such as rodent...
Dust and poor indoor air quality can lead to respitory complications and unhealthly living spaces.
