About Elite Air Systems

Elite Air Systems is committed to making our communities better, inside and out. Inside, with a highly informed, experienced approach to creating and maintaining ideal indoor environments for both homes and businesses. And out, by improving the quality of interaction and expectations of mutual respect as a way of life in this region.


Elite Air Systems was founded in the Gallatin Valley in 2004 by Chris Lottman. Chris moved to the Bozeman area from South Dakota in 1995 as a graduate of Mitchell Technical Institute. He gained experience working in HVAC applications around the Gallatin Valley, including a four-year journeyman apprenticeship. His credentials include:

  • AAS Degree in Propane and Natural Gas Service and Installation
  • Diploma in Welding Technology
  • Journeyman Card for HVAC Installation
  • Continuing education through American Standard
  • More than 20 years in the industry

 

Chris and his wife Gwen have two young kids in the Bozeman schools. They enjoy outdoor recreation in the area, especially camping, hunting and fishing.


In 2008, Chris was joined at Elite Air Systems by his former classmate Chad Moe – who also has a graduate of Mitchell Technical Institute, and is credited with introducing Chris to Montana. He worked in HVAC in Great Falls prior to moving to the Gallatin Valley. Chad is certified:

Mitchell Technical Institute diploma in Propane and Natural Gas Service and Installation
Continuing education through American Standard
More than 20 years in the industry

Chad and his wife Jessica also have two young children. They enjoy the great outdoors, with a particular fondness for fishing—Canyon Ferry is one of the favorite locales.


Both Chris and Chad have demonstrated that they’re serious about this business through their technical school studies, certifications and continued professional development during their careers. In addition, they give credit for their success to their excellent team and technicians.
