Schedule Your Appointment
During COVID concerns we’ve all had to adapt. The Touchless In Home Furnace and Air Conditioning Proposal is one of the services we created to take care of our most at risk and health concerned community members.
Why a Touchless Proposal?
Your world changed in March 2020. Whether you have high-risk family members or concerns about being in contact and exposed to COVID-19 we get it. You don’t have to be made to feel uncomfortable in your own home. We can simply supply our professional assessment of your existing or requested system, from the World Wide Web. We are happy to come to you….digitally.
AND, if you have a funky schedule, or can’t be home till after work (or the big Bridger Beacon is flashing on a big powder day) the Virtual Heating and Cooling Touchless proposal might be just right for you.
What will happen during my Virtual Home Furnace and Air Conditioning Proposal?
It all starts when you call the office. We’ll take your digits, get to know the current problem you are trying to solve, and schedule an appointment.
Then comes the fun part. Our Comfort Specialist will connect with you (that’s fancy talk for Matt or Corey) at your scheduled appointment time. We’ve used Zoom and Facetime with great results. We love coming to your home and meeting you, but we can always point the camera at you for virtual introduction. Not to mention, this is a great opportunity for you to learn how your HVAC System works and the different equipment involved.
What you’ll need:
- Phone or tablet
- Hi-speed internet or a 4G or better cell mobile device
- Tape Measure
- Flashlight or Headlamp
What part of the house will we need to see?
Most times, in the Gallatin Valley furnaces are in the crawl space, but components can be tucked in closets, attics, garages, too.
Sound like too many spiders for you? We still are happy to come out and do the dirty work, but hey, when we were kids all the spaces we’re visiting were magically mysterious. So when you’re ready, we’ll crawl down or up the ladder. This is going to be fun.
Which components are assessed during your Touchless In Home Furnace and Air Conditioning Proposal?
During your appointment we’re going to walk you through every step. You don’t need any previous knowledge to be able to help us. We provide you the same professional expertise we would if we were in your home, just using you as our in-home videographer and assessor.
We are going to look at:
- Inside the furnace we’ll get the model number and serial number of furnace
- Attached ductwork
- Filter media
- Space surrounding unit (taking notes of the environment for current concern or future installation of equipment)
- Electrical Supply Panel
- Outdoor unit (existing or future installation)
- Outdoor power source
- Air return vents and home duct system
- Home measurements
Don’t worry, you don’t have to know what you’re looking at. We can have some fun with that, via video too. “Sally, see that big grey box. No not the Christmas ornaments, the metal one to your left…yeah that one. Ok, get a little closer. Perfect. OK I got that picture. Now point your camera over toward the left”.
After we’ve got the right screen shots, and had you take a 5-6 measurements we’ll get you out of your crawl space and move on to the thermostat and go meet your dog.
Some questions we will ask you about your home:
After all you are the queen or king of your home. The most important part of what we accomplish in our Touchless In Home Furnace and Air Conditioning Proposal is talking to you. You are the pro in your home, and you know what you want to improve in our comfort at your house. We want to know what it feels like, to you, to live in your home as it relates to your heating and cooling.
Here’s some questions that we’ll ask to help us understand your home and give you options to select the right heating and air conditioning equipment to get comfortable when we come to install the selected equipment.

The Difference Between Ductless Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning
It’s springtime, lots of homeowners are beginning to shop for ways to cool their homes in the summer, and one question we receive every year is “What’s the difference between air conditioning and a heat pump?”
Both are excellent options for heating and cooling your home, but which one you choose will depend on your current heating situation. If you already have an efficient furnace, air conditioning might be the best choice for you. If you have an older furnace or are looking for a furnace replacement, a heat pump might be a better option, because a heat pump can both heat and cool your house. Here are a few details about each product and how they work:
An air conditioner draws heat from the air inside your house and pushes it outside. It then uses refrigerant to replace the warm air inside your home with cool air. An air conditioner can only send energy one direction, which means all it can do is cool your house.
Air Conditioning is an ideal choice for people who already have an efficient heating system in their home. If you already have a high-efficiency gas furnace, an air conditioner is probably the right choice for you, because they typically cost less up-front than heat pumps.
The big mechanical difference between an air conditioner and a ductless heat pump is that a heat pump can reverse the flow of energy, so it can pull heat from the outside air to warm your home, but it can also pull heat from the air in your house and cool it off. Unlike an air conditioner, which can only be used during one season, a heat pump can be used to keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the year.
In the fall, when it’s cool, you can efficiently heat your home with a heat pump. If you are replacing a furnace or have an older, inefficient furnace and are considering adding AC, a heat pump is an energy-efficient choice that will satisfy both requirements. However, a heat pump isn’t as robust as a traditional heating system, so when it gets really cold, you will still need to use your furnace or another heating system from time to time.
