Air Conditioning Hire

Hospitals & Healthcare

Maintaining patient comfort as summer temperatures rise or responding immediately to an unexpected air conditioning equipment breakdown are vitally important in hospitals, surgeries, clinics and other healthcare facilities. In a clinical environment, for example, there is no margin for error with any equipment. Air conditioning systems need to be robust, precise, and above all, reliable. In sensitive applications where accurate temperature control is vital, Andrews Air Conditioning has particular expertise.

Our Healthcare Expertise

No other air conditioning rental supplier can match Andrews Air Conditioning’s experience and understanding of the healthcare sector. We are experts in the provision of portable air conditioning hire, trusted and approved by hospitals, health centres and surgeries across the UK. Our comprehensive range of rental equipment provides clean, cost-effective cooling and instant emergency back-up. So, if your permanent air-con system fails or you need supplementary cooling during periods of exceptional demand, we aim to have equipment on site within four hours of your call, anywhere in the country, any time of day or night. We have UK’s widest range of portable air conditioners, ventilation fans, chillers and air handlers and a reputation for reliability and value for money to match.


Effective air conditioning, although rarely even considered until something goes wrong, is vital for the comfort and well-being of hospital patients. Excessively high temperatures can extend recovery periods and promote the more rapid spread of infection. In extreme circumstances, effective temperature control really can be a matter of life and death.

At Andrews Air Conditioning, we understand the important contribution our rental equipment and unrivalled expertise can make by providing a cool, comfortable environment. Our portable air conditioners are energy efficient and environmentally responsible. Of course, hygiene is of the utmost importance, so our units are delivered clean and fully serviced.

Andrews’ temporary air-con equipment is attractively designed and operates quietly and discreetly. It can therefore be used with confidence in a wide range of applications such as wards, private recovery rooms and consulting areas. If a greater volume of cooled air is required, the Andrews specialist hire division offers a comprehensive range of sophisticated temporary chillers which can be connected to the hospital’s own chilled water distribution and heat exchange system. Alternatively, in scenarios where a standalone large capacity rental air conditioning system is required, our chillers can be connected to our matching air handling units via ducting.

In some situations, our large capacity self-contained DX air conditioners – such as our HPAC90 units – are preferred. These solutions may be particularly suited to larger wards, facilities housing temperature-sensitive IT and diagnostic equipment or even a temporary mortuary.

We understand the special requirements of your vital sector, so don’t let rising temperatures try your patients. When you need to hire temporary air conditioners, we’re here to help.

Surgeries & Health Centres

Visiting a doctor’s surgery, health centre or clinic can be a stressful experience, especially for the very young, elderly or infirm. A calm, soothing environment will go some way to alleviating these anxieties which is why Andrews Air Conditioning is always available to lend a helping hand. We know there are many different applications for temporary air conditioning hire across the health sector and our flexible modular equipment is ideal for being configured to suit any requirement. Specialist environments demand specialist advice and we’re always happy to visit your workplace to develop the ideal temporary cooling solution.

In environments where members of the public will be close to air conditioning installations, it is vital that all equipment satisfies the most stringent health and safety legislation. This is particularly true in situations involving children, the elderly or psychiatric patients. Patient and staff morale will be improved if effective temperature control is maintained. Occasional breakdowns or shortfalls in cooling capacity will inevitably occur so a swift response and an effective hired in cooling solution will ensure patients and staff members feel valued. Resolving any problems quickly also provides a positive impression of quality, high quality care and best practice. Each Andrews Sykes branch stocks a comprehensive range of air conditioning units and, with branches nationwide, help is never far away. In fact, we guarantee to deliver our rental equipment within four hours of your call if necessary.
