Air Conditioner Repair in Beaverton, OR 97007

“Thank you for your quick response. I forgot to remove the cover on my A/C unit before starting it this spring damaging several parts and rendering it useless. Robin C was dispatched to help us out. The damage was extensive, and the initial diagnosis was very expensive. Robin C replaced several parts keeping me well informed of the work being done. She worked well past the dinner hour and was able to salvage the compressor. He determination to find the right fix saved me thousands. I greatly appreciate Columbia Northwest and the work ethic of Robin C. Would highly recommend both to anyone. Thanks again.” – Derik G.

Air Conditioner Maintenance in North Plains, OR 97133

“I highly recommend Columbia NW Heating & Air Conditioning and here’s why. After 21 years of flawless performance and only routine maintenance my Trane XE1000 failed to cool my house in late June. I called Columbia NW and scheduled an appointment to trouble shoot the unit. Two days later Nick Jones arrived to take a look. Within 15 minutes Nick had the problem diagnosed. Low Freon charge. During the preparation to leak seal and recharge the unit Nick was very professional and friendly. Being an involved home owner I asked Nick a number of questions about A/C systems and future replacement. He was informative and enthusiastic about various choices without using any of the scare tactics. He also answered questions concerning the heater, water heater, and told me about the Reme-Halo Air Purification System. Nick is the kind of service tech you want working on your heating and A/C systems.”

I would highly recommend them

“This company did a great job from the initial sales contact (Francisco) to scheduling and the crew doing the installation of the equipment we ordered. (The two Jakes) I would highly recommend them.”

This was great service!

Charles and Jose came out and installed an air conditioning unit in the upstairs of our house. They were terrific! They were on time, communicated with us often and clearly and did the job quickly, cleaned up afterwards and explained how to use the system. This was great service!

When I get ready for a new one, you know where I be going...Columbia NW Heating & Air Conditioning!

I was told that because they were so busy that they would not be able to get to me until the next day. An hour later, Brad was knocking at my door, and had my A/C unit running in about 45 minutes. He explained EVERYTHING to me, and gave me some valuable information to keep the unit running efficiently. The company is local, knowledgeable, fast, and friendly. When I get ready for a new one, you know where I be going…Columbia NW Heating & Air Conditioning! P.S. Thanks again Brad!! (You have no idea how pleased I was with your professionalism, and knowledge of your trade).
