Energy Efficient Air Conditioning Options For Portland Oregon

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 many economical and energy efficient air conditioning options.

Midway Heating is a Lennox Premiere energy efficient air conditioningdealer and with 3 series of energy efficient equipment, we have a solution for all budgets or comfort levels.

What is SEER?

It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is similar to gas mileage. The higher the number, the more energy efficient the unit, which 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.  For example, it takes more energy to cool a 3,000 sq. ft 2-story than a 1,400 sq. ft. ranch.

That’s where we come in-we’ll look at the size of your home and its 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.
