Signs you need a new air conditioner installed

Is your system over ten years old and breaking down a lot? Then it most likely makes sense to install a new system. While the initial costs are higher than a repair, you’ll end up saving money in the long run. Other signs that your air conditioner is on the verge of a breakdown include frequent cycling, rooms that are too warm, and odd noises.


Benefits of installing a new central air conditioning system include:

  • Efficiency: A new cooling system will be much more efficient than whatever you’re replacing. Not only does this reduce your carbon footprint, but your energy bills will be lower.
  • Energy efficient rebates: State and federal rebates or incentives are often available when you purchase a new air conditioner installation, heat pump, or ductless heat pump. We’ll help you decide what you might qualify for.
  • Fewer repairs: Don’t get stuck spending money on a system that might not get you through the next Portland summer heatwave! A new air conditioner won’t break down as often, which saves money, time, and stress.

An efficient way to cool

The efficiency of air conditioners (and heat pumps when in “cool” mode) is measured by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER). The higher the rating, the greater the efficiency. Most air conditioners available today range from 13-21 SEER rating. Ratings over 14 are considered efficient and qualify for the Energy Star label.
