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.
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.
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.
Is it possible to manage my home’s energy consumption from a smartphone?
Breakthrough technology over the last few years has made it possible to monitor and manage your home or building’s energy consumption via WiFi, allowing you to view your home’s energy use in real time and even turn devices on and off. It is even possible to manage energy use using your smartphone!
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.
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 infestation or if ducts are sufficiently clogged to prevent adequate airflow.
