Computer and telecommunications systems are vital to any business in the modern world. However this equipment commonly has a high ’power density’, with much of that power being dissipated as heat. IT equipment is sensitive to heat and humidity and must therefore be maintained within a strict temperature and relative humidity range. Andrews Air Conditioning has a wealth of expertise in providing bespoke air conditioning and humidity control for hire to a host of IT and telecoms applications. Our vast experience enables us to create effective solutions for clients who understand the importance of ensuring the optimum environment for their IT systems.

At Andrews Air Conditioning we understand that if your servers go down, your business will soon follow. As the UK’s leading air conditioning hire specialist, we provide free site surveys to advise you on the best air conditioning solutions to suit your needs. All equipment is quiet, dependable and discreet in operation. Our PAC22 and recently-introduced PAC60 portable air conditioning units are ideal for use in computer suites as they feature a special split design. This enables heat to be transferred and extracted up to 30 metres from the servers. From a single 2kW standalone aircon unit to multiple installations involving cooling and ventilation, we will devise and install exactly the right equipment.

For larger temperature control problems our rental fluid chillers are the ideal solution. Working in conjunction with our matching air handlers they are ideal in situations of major breakdown or overhaul of installed cooling systems - and all at a price you’ll find surprisingly affordable. If you’re worried about what you would do if your facility suffered a major power or cooling failure, our Climate contingency service will give you peace of mind by identifying what, how and when equipment would be mobilised and installed at your site. With the largest range and fleet of portable air conditioning units available for hire, Andrews Air Conditioning provides a truly nationwide service, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Telecommunications is an industry that never sleeps. That’s why we are available 24/365 ready to respond to your call. Our expert air conditioning hire advisors and engineers are available to visit you anywhere in the UK. Drawing on their many years of experience and expertise in the telecoms field, our specialists will assess each area and advise the best solution from our comprehensive range of exhaust tube portable air conditioners or split air conditioning units. So no matter whether you’re managing a major switch centre or are concerned about a single mobile telephone base station, we have the solution.

For larger or more specialist applications, Andrews Chiller Hire can provide a range of high performance chillers with capacities up to 750kW available for short or long term hire. Telecoms equipment is sensitive to relative humidity as well as excessive temperatures. Our humidity control expertise is on hand to help you avoid malfunctions and failures resulting from static electricity build up. Our humidifiers and dehumidifiers are available in a range of sizes to suit the needs of a telecommunications application. By calling us free today on 0800 211 611 you’ll understand why we’re not just a general hire company but the leading specialist air conditioning hire company in the UK. Our portable air conditioning units are ideal for providing instant cool air for server rooms, computer suites, telecommunication facilities and UPS systems.
