Aeroseal for Enhanced System Performance
Making your system work
smarter, not harder.
If you’re like most people who invested in a high-efficiency home heating and cooling system, you did it for two reasons: to make better use of less energy, and to spend less on energy bills. And you want your system to last a long time.
Bigger is not always better.
If you’re considering a new system, or you think your existing system is underperforming, beware of buying bigger for the sake of bigger. It’s rare to find a unit that actually is undersized. The real cause of inefficiency and high energy bills may be a weak duct system with air leaks, missing insulation, or inadequate maintenance.
“For an average home, leaky ducts can waste hundreds of dollars each year. Duct leakage also lowers the heating and cooling capacity, and can lessen equipment life.”
– Southface Energy Institute
Buying new, high-efficiency heating and cooling equipment, and then hooking it up to the typical, inefficient duct system is like buying a super-fuel efficient, hybrid car and then driving it with a leak in the gas tank. It defeats the purpose.

Impact is up to 50% greater on A/C performance if return air leakage is from a hot attic or attached garage. Impact is typically 50% to 100% greater on winter heating performance of a heat pump with electric resistance auxiliary heat.
Now, what if you could buy a smaller system with a lower initial cost, one that would perform better than a bigger system, save on energy bills, AND last longer? A well-designed and sealed duct system can help you accomplish all of the above.
That’s where All American Heating comes in.
All American will clean your ducts and then seal them with Aeroseal®. This dual treatment is the best way to achieve maximum efficiency from your equipment. Sealing and insulating your ducts increases system efficiency, lowers your energy bills, and can often pay for itself with those energy savings.
Plus, if you’re planning to install new heating and cooling equipment, a well-designed and sealed duct system may allow you to downsize to a smaller, less costly heating and cooling system that will provide better dehumidification and prevent airborne contaminants.
