Install energy efficient heating and cooling equipment in your Portland Oregon home
You'll love how comfortable you are!
Since 1959, Midway Heating has been providing heating and cooling services for homeowners throughout the Portland area, including Gladstone, Gresham, Troutdale, Tigard, West Linn, Milwaukie and Lake Oswego.
We want our customers to be comfortable without spending a fortune on their utility bills and the answer is installing energy efficient equipment. You can save energy and money at the same time.
If you add up your savings over the life of the equipment, you'll see that it really does pay for itself.
Installing A/C can be affordable for all budgets
Did you suffer through the summer last year because you thought installing a/c wasn't in your budget or maybe you have it but it costs too much to run? We have several affordable solutions to keep your Portland home cool.
The weather in Oregon is not super hot and most days, your a/c won't be running 24/7 so there's no need to buy the most expensive model. Two of our best selling A/C units are the EL16CX1 from Lennox's Elite line and the 13ACX, both will save you energy and money.
If you're upgrading your A/C, installing a Lennox high efficiency unit is a good idea as a newer model is more efficient than older models.
Save money with an energy efficient furnace
Many high efficiency gas furnaces on the market today operate with a 96% or higher AFUE efficiency. When you consider most furnaces more than 15 years old have a 65% efficiency, it’s easy to see why your heating bills are higher than they need to be.
That’s where Midway Heating can help. As a Lennox Premier dealer, we have energy efficient furnaces to fit all budgets and comfort levels, from the top notch SLP98V to the more affordable EL296E. Learn more by visiting our Furnace product page.
Convert your oil furnace to natural gas
You can't talk about energy efficiency without discussing converting your current oil furnace to a more efficient gas furnace.
If your oil furnace is prone to break downs, it may be smarter to invest in a new gas furnace instead of spending money to fix an old furnace.
Here are before and after photos of an aging oil furnace being replaced by a natural gas furnace.
Gas furnaces are more efficient than oil furnaces so visit our Furnace Conversion page to read more about the benefits of natural gas furnaces and the process of switching to natural gas.
Upgrade all equipment for bigger savings
The savings don't stop with furnaces, there’s also been advancements in the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps so now is the time to consider upgrading your equipment.
NW Natural and Oregon Department of Energy offer rebates and incentives on many models of energy efficient equipment. The amounts vary so contact Midway Heating to schedule your free estimate and we'll give you the details.

"I just wanted to thank you and your installation crew for the first class installation of the furnace in my son’s house. According to the City of West Linn’s inspector, “this is one of the finest installations that I have ever seen.
Please thank the crew and let them know that we really appreciate their care and consideration during this furnace install project."
What is Energy Star?
Energy Star is a government sponsored program set up to help businesses and homeowners by giving them the information they need to make smart choices about buying energy efficient products.
What is SEER?
It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.
Often compared to gas mileage on a car, it measure the cooling output to electrical consumption over a range of temperatures.
The higher the SEER number, the more efficient your A/C or heat pump and the less it will cost to operate.
What is AFUE?
It’s short for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency.
The AFUE number tells you how efficiently a furnace converts fuel to energy so the higher the percentage, the more energy efficient the furnace.
For example, a 95% AFUE-rated furnace means that 95 cents out of every dollar actually goes towards heating your home.
