AEI Community Involvement

AEI Community Involvement - Giving back to community

Keep the Heat on Program - Heating for those in need

Every fall, AEI will donate a furnace and installation to a neighbor or family in need within the South Minneapolis Community. The selection process is based on family situation, income,  medical requirements if any, and overall need. If you know of a neighbor you think might qualify for this program, please send an email to with a description of the situation and the reason why you think that this neighbor or family should be selected for our program. We will work in conjunction with local organizations, nonprofits and communities of faith to spread the word.

AEI's foundation and success was built on the capital and trust built within our community by local resident and owner Dustin Denison. When AEI was founded in January of 2010 as a startup and the community in South Minneapolis was integral during the recession to trust us and hire us, which helped us grow.
