What’s The Most Energy Efficient Air Conditioner For Your Portland Oregon Home?

If you don’t have air conditioning in your home, this is the year to do something about it.  There’s no need to suffer when there’s economical and energy efficient air conditioning available to you.

Whether you’re on an extremely tight budget or looking for the ultimate in comfort, Midway Heating has the solution to your air conditioning troubles.

We are a Lennox Premiere energy efficient air conditioningdealer and with their 3 levels of energy efficient equipment- there’s a model to fit every household’s needs.

What is SEER?

It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and it’s like the gas mileage on your car. The higher the number, the more energy efficient it is and that means you’ll save energy and money on your monthly cooling bill.

It’s worthwhile to note that with a higher SEER rating, you’ll save more money though it’s relative to HOW MUCH you use your a/c unit. Also, the size of your house places a role as it takes more energy to cool a 3,000 square foot 2-story house than a 1,500 ranch.

That’s where we come in-we’ll look at the size of your home and current heating & cooling system.  Our expertise is balancing the economic investment, comfort and energy efficiency of each model to select the one best for you.
