At Andrews Air Conditioning we understand how important your clients’ air conditioning is. No matter how well maintained your systems are sudden, unexpected failures can occur. In addition, you may require a temporary increase in air conditioning capacity due to weather conditions or changes in how your facilities are used.

That’s why we provide a rapid-response air conditioning hire service for our facilities management clients in the event of an unexpected equipment failure, outage or cooling capacity shortfall. We constantly maintain the largest fleet of temporary air conditioning and ventilation equipment available in the UK. No matter what you need to keep cool - critical equipment, sensitive products or vital people - we’ll be there to get you back up and running with a cost-effective temporary AC rental solution, fast. So even if your breakdown can’t be fixed immediately, your problems certainly can.

To give facilities managers and their clients even greater peace of mind, for business-critical facilities such as IT, telecoms and security suites we’ve developed our Business Continuity Plan. This ensures that even if your vital air conditioning systems go down, your business doesn’t. We will conduct a comprehensive site survey to establish what temporary equipment would be required and where best it could be located and connected into your systems or facilities. To find out more about how our Business Continuity Plan protects you and your client against an air conditioning emergency call now on 0800 211 611 or enquire online. We’ll develop a comprehensive temporary hire solution incorporating all aspects of your cooling, heating and ventilation requirements.

Routine planned preventative maintenance (PPM) of permanently installed air conditioning in offices, retail, healthcare, education and other premises, is a vital but easily overlooked activity for all facilities managers. However, complying with the equipment manufacturers’ maintenance schedules whilst avoiding downtime on your client’s systems can present a real headache. The same problem arises when you need to carry out that important pre-emptive component replacement, repair or upgrade. That’s where a temporary air conditioning hire solution from Andrews Sykes will help. To complement and assist your PPM schedules we will design and install a short-term rental solution which avoids the need for any reduction or suspension of the permanent cooling capacity. That gives you time to complete the necessary maintenance, repair or upgrade and keeps your client cool and content.

Our wide range of exhaust tube and water-cooled split air conditioners is complemented by vast stocks of ventilation fans, ducting and evaporative coolers. Our market-leading air conditioning rental fleet also includes temporary water chillers and large capacity DX units which, when combined with our air handlers and flexible ducting, produce large volumes of conditioned air ideal for replacing and supporting large permanent systems.

For facilities management providers who need to carry out PPMs on installed air conditioning systems whilst avoiding downtime, temporary air conditioning hire from Andrews Sykes is the ideal solution. To discover exactly how we can help call now on 0800 211 611 or enquire online.
