Aeroseal for Enhanced System Performance
Helping 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 gain enhanced system performance (in other words, 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 current system is underperforming, beware of buying bigger just for the sake of bigger. It’s rare to find a unit that is truly undersized. In actuality, 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 a new, high-efficiency heating and cooling system, and then hooking it up to an aging or 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.

The impact is up to 50% greater on A/C performance if return air leakage is from a hot attic or attached garage. The 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 we come in.
All American Heating will clean your ducts and then seal them with Aeroseal®. This dual treatment is the best way to achieve enhanced system performance, and get 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 also provide better humidity control, and prevent airborne contaminants. This is the result of enhanced system performance with Aeroseal.
