Home isn’t home without the cool comfort of a reliable air conditioning system!

We have the experience required to work on any make and model of equipment, and for new installations we source equipment from leading manufactures like Lennox, Bryant & American Standard.
The efficiency of an air conditioner is measured by a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. A 19 SEER air conditioner is more efficient than a 13 SEER model. However, overall cooling efficiency involves a lot more than a SEER rating. The most important part of a home indoor comfort system is the actual design and installation. This must be performed according to industry best guidelines or even the finest equipment will not perform efficiently. After a quality install, seasonal maintenance ensures efficiency will continue.

Air conditioners and heat pumps are all electric devices that compress refrigerant. Compressing refrigerant expels heat energy which turns refrigerant into a chilled liquid. This liquid is then pumped inside to the indoor coil. Modern equipment is not only quieter than air conditioners of old, but much more efficient. Many offer communicating abilities for increased overall system performance.
A/C Maintenance Portland
Whether your air conditioning system is shiny new or has a few years on it, one thing remains the same, and that’s the need for scheduled maintenance.

A natural gas furnace is the king of toasty warm air during a frigid Portland winter season. In the past, gas furnaces used to have a constantly running pilot that went to full flame when the furnace turned on. Modern furnaces boast fully modulating flames with means the flame adjust in tiny increments for more efficient heating. Plus, variable speed ECM fan motors make furnaces whisper quiet.
Your heating system needs maintenance to protect equipment from premature problems, and to maintain heating efficiency. Imagine if you skipped oil changes on your car – would it quit running the next day? No, but fuel efficiency would begin to decline, and eventually you’d end up with a pricey repair bill. Your heating system is no different. Maintenance helps protect your efficiency and equipment.

If you have an oil fired furnace or all electric heat, it’s time to save money by converting to natural gas. Most new 80% AFUE furnaces can exhaust with metal piping and sometimes use the chimney. A 96-98% AFUE condensing furnace uses PVC piping to vent. New furnaces also feature variable speed ECM fan motors that are whisper quiet, so no more turning up the TV when the furnace kicks on!
Have you been using a noisy, energy sucking floor heater to keep a living space without ducting comfortable? Did you know there’s a much better solution? Ductless heat pumps provide both cooling and heating, and they don’t need ducting to do it. They’re also known as ‘mini-splits’ because like a normal split system, the heat pump is located outside, and the air handler is located inside.
To keep the winter chill away from your warehouse and to do so cost-effectively, you have to match the heater to your facility’s size and needs. We can help. In some cases, the entire warehouse will need to be warmed up, in others, just particular areas. Issues of cost, ventilation and unit placement also demand consideration. Luckily, gas-fired and electric heaters can address any scenario.
Home isn’t home unless it’s comfortable, and staying warm during an Oregon winter is definitely a priority! Efficiency Heating & Cooling cares about the comfort of our customers…We care about the size of your utility bill. We’re here to help enhance the quality of your indoor comfort control with maintenance, repair and new installation services. Call us today!
Oil To Gas Furnace Conversion,If you heated your home with an oil fired furnace here in Oregon last winter (2012) you probably paid around $1500. Did you know that a natural gas furnace would have cost close to half that amount? It’s true, according to the US Energy Information Administration. In fact, since early 2000, oil heating has average out at about 40% more than gas heating. These numbers make replacing an older, oil furnace with a new model very attractive.
Making the move to a new gas furnace isn’t just about cheaper fuel either. Modern furnaces feature fully modulating flames and condensing technology that brings efficiency all the up to around 95% AFUE, with top models even exceeding this rating! Plus, variable speed fan motors are oh-so-very-quiet. If you turn up the TV when your HVAC system kicks on, those days can now be over.
We provide free estimates on upgrading your old oil furnace to a new, efficient natural gas model. Plus, our experience means the job is done right.
