Surprising Benefits of Commercial Rental HVAC Equipment

Have you ever wondered what the best temperature is for people to be productive? Cornell University conducted a study that revealed it to be 71.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Does your business require an air conditioner to achieve this temperature? If so, are you considering purchasing one? You might be surprised to discover that choosing a rental air conditioner from IDS could be more advantageous. Here are the benefits of taking that approach.


There’s nothing worse than having your air conditioning break on a scorching hot day. Traditionally, you’d have to wait for repairs, and that is if the unit can fixed quickly, if at all.  Does the service team have the parts needed to repair the unit? It may be determined that you need to replace it. However, with a temporary solution, you can quickly rent an air conditioner and restore the temperatures to productive levels.


When you have a permanent HVAC system, if there are operational issues, you need to arrange for a mechanical contractor or service technician to visit, inspect and propose next steps.  However, with a rental from IDS, you can bypass this inconvenience. If the rental unit has issues, IDS will either quickly fix the issue or swap out the unit to maintain the conditions you need in your facility or jobsite. It’s a smart allocation of both time and money.


The most notable benefit of opting for portable air conditioner rentals is that you pay only for the months you use them. Consider this: if you only need them for July and August, why invest in a full unit that sits idle from September to June? That’s a sunk cost. Instead, put that money back in your pocket by choosing to rent. You can then allocate the saved funds to other areas of your business.


With HVAC rentals, specifically those for commercial use, can entail large units connected to your permanent ducting or they can units that are portable, on wheels that can plug in wherever you need. Unlike most in-home air conditioning units, which you either keep in one place outside or in a window, portable cooling units can easily move from one room to another or across a warehouse with no hassle. Additionally, these rental air conditioners don’t require ducts, so you won’t have to worry about cutting a hole in a wall.


On summer days when the heat feels as though it’s taking over, it can be really hard to focus on the job that needs to be done. Beyond that, heat can prove to be dangerous to workers. Heat exhaustion is one of three heat-related syndromes — heat cramps are known to be the mildest, and heat stroke is the most extreme. High heat poses both productivity and safety issues, so bringing in a portable rental air conditioner may be the answer to all of your problems.

These are just a few of the benefits that you can enjoy from renting air conditioners. Primarily, you have the flexibility to use them whenever needed, without the concern of installation costs since they are portable. This ensures you stay cool on hot days, allowing your staff to work without the worry of dangerous conditions or harm to anyone. This alone can make it a worthwhile investment.  Do you need an estimate for portable air conditioner rentals? Contact IDS today!
