Why We Need to Visit Your Home to Give You a Quote


post img

When it comes to getting a new heating and cooling system for your home, you might be tempted to just pick up the phone and ask for a quote.

After all, it seems like it should be a pretty straightforward process, right?

Well, not exactly. And there’s a good reason why most reputable heating and cooling companies won’t give you a quote over the phone for a new system installation. Let us explain!

Every home is different

First and foremost, every home is unique, with its own specific heating and cooling needs.

The square footage of your home is one of the most important factors in determining the size of your system. A system that’s too small won’t be able to keep up with the demand, while one that’s too large will cycle on and off too frequently, leading to inefficiency and higher energy bills. But it’s not just the overall size that matters – the number of rooms, levels, and even the ceiling height can all impact the load on your system. The layout of your home and the configuration of your ductwork can also play a role in your needs. A home with an open floor plan may have different requirements than one with many small, closed-off rooms.

Also, the number of people living in your home, as well as their ages and activities, can also affect your heating and cooling needs. Even the number, size, and location of your windows can have a big impact on your home’s heating and cooling needs. South-facing windows, for example, can let in a lot of heat during the summer, while drafty windows can let in cold air during the winter. Similarly, the amount and quality of insulation in your walls, attic, and floors can affect how hard your system has to work to maintain a comfortable temperature.

So, without actually coming out to your home and doing a thorough evaluation, there’s no way for us to give you an accurate quote over the phone.

It’s all in the details

Secondly, there are a ton of little details that go into installing a new heating and cooling system that can have a big impact on the final price. Things like the length of the refrigerant lines, the placement of the outdoor unit, and whether or not we’ll need to make any modifications to your existing ductwork can all add to the cost of the project. And again, there’s just no way for us to know all of that without actually seeing your home in person.

We want to do it right

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, we want to make sure we do the job right. Installing a new heating and cooling system is a big investment, and we want to make sure you get the best possible system for your home and your budget. And the only way we can do that is by coming out to your house, doing a thorough evaluation, and then sitting down with you to discuss your options.

So, while we understand the desire for a quick and easy quote over the phone, the reality is that it’s just not possible to do it right. But trust us, taking the time to do a proper evaluation and installation will be well worth it in the long run. You’ll end up with a system that keeps you comfortable all year round, and saves you money on your energy bills to boot!
