Air Conditioning Installation

Don’t suffer another heat wave without air conditioning

Most of us don’t think about how much we love air conditioning until it gets hot. Restless nights and sweaty days can take a toll on you in the midst of summer. If you have a system that is more than 10 years old, it might be time for a trusted professional to take a look. Jacobs Heating & Air Conditioning has been providing high-quality service in Portland and Vancouver since 1952. Homeowners know they can rely on us for top-notch air conditioning installations.

When Is It Time for a New Air Conditioner?

An underperforming air conditioner can be frustrating, uncomfortable, and expensive. No air conditioner at all is even worse. If your home doesn’t have AC, installing a central air system can provide life-changing relief. If you already have an AC system but it’s just not working the way it used to, we can help you decide if an AC repair or replacement makes more sense.

Your Energy Costs Are Excessive

As air conditioning systems age they need to work harder to cool down the air in your home. This is when air conditioners tend to use lots of energy. They may also make a lot of noise. Newer systems are quieter and more efficient. They are designed to conserve energy while maintaining a pleasant temperature throughout your home.

Your Home Isn’t Cool Enough

The last thing you want on a sweltering day is lukewarm air conditioning. Sometimes there is a quick fix, but it can also be a sign your system is reaching the end of its life. A professional can identify the cause and the solution so you don’t have to suffer through summer with an ineffective AC system.

You Keep Paying for Repairs

Regular maintenance and repairs keep your air conditioner running smoothly, but every system needs to be replaced eventually. When complications become more frequent and expensive, repairing your AC is no longer worth the cost. Choosing the right model and the right installer means your system will run efficiently for years to come.

Choosing Your New Air Conditioner

Whether you are planning a central AC replacement or a new installation, choosing the right model makes all the difference. Your new air conditioner should make your life better. Jacobs consultants will help you choose the system that best meets your home’s cooling needs. They will evaluate your house’s window locations, sun exposure, ceiling heights, and insulation. Other considerations include allergy concerns and the number of people and pets in your home. Next, we present you with choices, including a good, better, and best option.

Energy Efficiency

A system’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) tells you its cooling output for each unit of energy it consumes.


Indoor air quality is important. The air you breathe should be clean, cool, and refreshing.


AC size affects comfort and efficiency. The right size system needs less energy to maintain your desired temperature in every room. A system that is too big will turn on and off quickly, creating a balmy atmosphere while an undersized system will work overtime to try to keep your home at the temperature you want.

Noise Level

Top-quality air conditioners are quiet. They silently but diligently keep your space comfortable. You’ll forget they’re even there.
