Your Beaverton HVAC Contractors Share Expansion Details

Beaverton has been growing rapidly in past years. Around 50 years ago Beaverton began its transformation from a quaint Tualatin Valley farming town into a vibrant Oregon city. Now the sixth largest city in the state, we are seeing more and more people move in to take advantage of all the amenities Beaverton has to offer. From our family-friendly atmosphere, to gourmet food scene, to dynamic Farmer’s Market and wealth of wineries, people from all over are wanting to call Beaverton home. With this influx of residents and growing families continuing their roots, leaders are looking to expand the Cooper Mountain area. 

What is Considered the Cooper Mountain Area?

The Cooper Mountain are is comprised of three distinct sectors:

  • North Cooper Mountain: a 510-acre area, which is inside the urban growth boundary and in unincorporated Washington County 
  • Cooper Mountain Urban Reserve: the 1,242-acre zone located between the North and South areas
  • South Cooper Mountain: a 544 acre area that was annexed by the city of Beaverton in 2012. 

The current development plan aims to maintain our distinctive landscape, while finding room for our growing population. The north and south regions will see the most expansion. The urban reserve area will keep the Cooper Mountain Nature Park untouched and preserve the majority of the natural areas. It’s estimated that only 600 acres of the 1,242 urban reserve area are developable. This development across all areas could provide around 3,700 new housing units as early as 2023 or 2024. 

What the Cooper Mountain Expansion Means for Prospective Homeowners

With the addition of new homes, there will be opportunities for residents in Beaverton and beyond to find their new dream home. Planning to take the plunge as an owner of one of these upcoming properties? It’s important to think about logistics like heating and cooling, energy efficiency, and air quality before signing on the dotted line. With brand new homes comes the advantage of a brand new residential HVAC system. 

There are many different types of HVAC units and levels of performance, so how do you know if you are getting the best heating and cooling for your new residence? When in doubt, consult your Beaverton HVAC installer and ask the important questions:

  • Is the HVAC unit the correct size for your home? Too large of a system will heat or cool your house quickly, but could create excessive humidity. If the unit is too small, it will struggle to effectively cool or heat your home.
  • What is the Energy Star rating of your HVAC system? Energy efficient units will save you on utility bills over time. 
  • Has the ductwork been properly installed? Ductwork that has gaps in the seams or loose connections will reduce air quality and energy efficiency.
  • Was the HVAC unit installed by a NATE certified technician?

If all signs point to a high-quality HVAC system, plan a routine maintenance schedule with your HVAC contractor. This will keep your system healthy and functioning for years to come.
