Air Conditioning for your Portland, Oregon home provides outstanding home comfort benefits to Northwest homeowners. Air conditioners help to remove humidity, and also provide significant air filtration benefits for Portland homes that do not have a specific air filtration system. All three types of air conditioning systems operate the same way: they don’t actually cool the air as much as they remove the heat from it. You can enjoy cool, clean air because the system pulls the heat out of the air that is inside your home, and passes it outside with a heat-transfer process involving a liquid called a “refrigerant”. Pioneer Gas Furnace is fully compliant with the international mandate to utilize only ecologically-sound refrigerants such as R410-A. High-efficiency air conditioning systems are rated using the SEER formula for efficiency: look for a SEER rating above 13 to save money on Portland, Oregon home cooling needs.

Universal or “Central Air” systems are whole-home coling systems, providing cool air to every room of your Portland, Oregon home through ducting from a single central unit. These systems actually have two parts that make them work: the condensing coil (or “indoor coil”), which is inside your home(usually near your furnace and air filtration system); a run of refrigerant pipes connect the condensing coil to the evaporator coil, which is outside your home, and part of the compressor & fan/blower assembly.
“Mini-split” units are the common ones we see hanging out of people’s windows, but models alse exist to be installed in ceilings and walls. If sized and installed appropriately, these can provide highly-efficient cooling to a specific area when you don’t need to cool the entire building, or want different temperate “zones” based on people’s preferences. While these single units can be a quick and cost-effective solution, a common mistake is to utilize these for an area or space beyond their capacity; you can reap significant effeciency gains and long-term cost savings by using a system that is truly appropriate to your needs.

These are single units that are come in a variety of sizes, providing cooling to a single room or area. Commonly used in places like hotel rooms and similar commercial applications, they are designed to be permanently installed in a wall, providing cool air inside, while blowing the hot air outside the wall.
