In our last post, we wrote about what you need to know about air conditioner efficiency ratings. As we mentioned in that post, the efficiency rating on an air conditioner isn’t an absolute about how much it will save over its service life. You can help your AC achieve the highest possible savings each year if you follow a number of tips.
Below, you’ll find the main ways you can stop your air conditioner from suffering an efficiency plunge (and your utility bills from skyrocketing) this summer.

Are you currently debating about a new air conditioning installation in Portland, OR? You have come to the right people! We never take any shortcuts when we install a new system.

We take the time to ensure our customers have the right new air conditioner to meet the cooling needs of their house and see that it is installed so it will run at maximum efficiency. We have the confidence to back any system we install with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
We’d like to share some of our expertise about one of the
most important factors when considering a new air conditioner: it’s efficiency
rating. These ratings can be confusing to people, and there are some assumptions
homeowners may have about what they mean.

With the summer heat coming up, you’re thinking that your old air conditioning system may not make it to fall. Or it will make it through the season, but it will cost you far too much to run than is worth it. You’re ready for a new air conditioning installation in Portland, OR, or the greater Portland area. How do you start? You have a few basic options:
- Purchase the air conditioner yourself and
install it as a DIY project.
- Purchase the air conditioner yourself and have an
amateur install it.
- Leave all of it to certified HVAC professionals.
The first and second options will lead to serious troubles. The chance of getting everything just right so you have a great long-term performance from the new system is almost nil. You may think you’ll save money, but the true costs will be far higher—starting with inferior comfort and ending with needing to replace the system years too early.

You’ve got an old air conditioning system that isn’t doing
the job anymore. It might be struggling to reach the lower temperature
necessary for home comfort, or it isn’t reliable, or it’s starting to cost a
small fortune to run during the summer. Time to get a new one. How’s the best
way to do it?
One option is to type “air conditioning replacement near me”
into a search engine and pick whatever contractor pops up first. You could also
ask around the neighborhood to see if somebody knows somebody who’ll put in an
AC for “super cheap.”
Neither of these ways is the best way to get a new central air conditioning installation in Portland, OR. In fact, they can end up as bad-to-terrible ways. An amateur simply can’t do this job accurately; there’s a reason that non-professionals can charge low rates—they do low-rate jobs and deliver low-rate air conditioners.

When spring arrives, people shift from thinking about their
heating systems to … well, thinking about them less. In Portland, homeowners
don’t automatically begin to feel concern over air conditioning systems, which
won’t start to put in serious work until the summer.
However, giving some thought to your AC right now preps for summer and avoids future problems. And you don’t have to give much more thought than to schedule air conditioning maintenance in Portland, OR with our team.
