Air Conditioning Systems Vancouver, WA – Portland
What is an Air Conditioner?
Air conditioners are dedicated to supplying cool air to the home. Air conditioners are part of a larger system known as the HVAC system. HVAC systems are made up of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. The air conditioner is the outdoor unit that fulfills the AC portion of HVAC.
In central HVAC systems, the heating factor is normally taken care of by the furnace and the ventilation portion by the ductwork. If you are thinking of purchasing an air conditioner, we recommend looking into a heat pump.
In the Vancouver, WA and Portland area most homeowners consider heating a necessity and air conditioning a luxury. We believe you should be comfortable in your home all year round, no matter what the weather has to say. With a new air conditioner you can stay comfortable during the cold times and the hot.

What to look for When Purchasing an Air Conditioner
Air conditioner efficiency is what affects price the most. Normally, air conditioners with higher efficiency have a higher price but higher efficiency results in lower energy bills which leads to more savings.
Here in Vancouver and Portland, air conditioning is only needed a couple months out of the year. Therefore, if you invest a large sum of money into a high SEER rated unit, most of the time you will not get an ideal return on your investment.
In other words, the energy savings you would gain from purchasing a high efficient air conditioner would not cover the additional upfront cost for the upgraded unit. Which is why we typically recommend air conditioners with lower SEER ratings of 13.0 – 14.0 for homeowners in the area.
If you are intent on purchasing a unit with higher SEER ratings we recommend purchasing a heat pump for the year round energy savings. A heat pump can be used during both heating and air conditioning months.
