Signs it's time to replace your air conditioner:
- If your equipment requires frequent repairs
- If your system short cycles

- If your system is leaking
- If your system won’t turn on at all
- If the cost of a replacement is less than a repair
- If the system isn't producing adequate airflow
- If the overall comfort and air quality of your home has decreased
- If the system still uses R-22 Freon
- If you want a more energy-efficient unit
There are several advantages to replacing your old AC equipment. Technology has increased rapidly in recent years, resulting in better energy efficiency and a wide range of innovative features to make your home comfortable and help you save money on your home cooling costs.
How Much Does AC Installation Cost in Portland?
If you're considering installing a new air conditioning system in your Portland home, one of the most important factors to consider is the cost.
At A-TEMP Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we understand that budget plays a significant role in your decision-making process, so we strive to provide transparent pricing and high-quality services to ensure you make an informed choice.
The cost of Portland air conditioning installation can vary depending on several factors, including:
System Size and Capacity
The size and capacity of your air conditioning system have a direct impact on the installation cost. Larger homes or spaces require more powerful and complex systems, which can be more expensive to install. Our team of experienced technicians will assess your home's cooling needs and recommend the appropriate system size to ensure optimal comfort and energy efficiency.
Type of AC System
There are various types of air conditioning systems available, including central air conditioners, heat pumps, and more. Each system type has its own installation requirements and associated costs. We can guide you through the options and help you choose the system that best suits your needs and budget.
If your home doesn't have existing ductwork, installing a central air conditioning system may require additional expenses for ductwork installation. Our knowledgeable technicians can evaluate your home's infrastructure and recommend the most suitable option.
Energy-efficient systems may have a higher upfront cost but can result in significant long-term savings on energy bills. Investing in a high-efficiency air conditioner can help you save money in the long run and contribute to a more sustainable environment.
Additional Features and Upgrades
Certain features and upgrades, such as programmable thermostats, or air purification systems, can enhance your comfort and indoor air quality. These additions may increase the initial installation cost but can provide valuable benefits over time.
Transparent Pricing and Expert Installation
At A-TEMP Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we believe in providing transparent pricing to our customers in Portland. Our knowledgeable technicians will assess your specific needs, explain the various options available, and provide you with a detailed estimate before any work begins. We strive to offer competitive prices while ensuring the highest standards of service and workmanship.
How To Choose An Air Conditioner
When buying a new air conditioner, the size and capacity must be right for the size of your home to ensure reliable home comfort and energy efficiency.
If you invest in an air conditioner that is undersized then it may cause your system to overwork to maintain the correct temperature throughout your property, which will raise your energy costs and wear down the unit.
While an oversized AC will often short cycle which can decrease the lifespan of your new unit. However, the size and capacity are not the only factors you should take into consideration when investing in a new system.
When choosing the right air conditioner:
- Determine the level of efficiency you want in a new unit which can be determined by the SEER rating
- Evaluate the type of air conditioning system that would work best for your home
- Inspect the current state of your ductwork
- Determine which brand, make, and model of system you prefer
- Assess what warranty options are available
We will explain the options and provide the information you need to compare systems and find the perfect system for your home. Our Portland AC replacement technicians have extensive knowledge of air conditioning equipment to help you choose the right system for your home.
