Retailing is a highly competitive business and customers are often able to choose from a wide selection of outlets. So why should they choose yours? No matter how good your merchandising is or how competitive your prices, if the shopping environment is unpleasantly hot your customers will soon go elsewhere. So if your retail premises doesn’t have permanently installed air conditioning, or you need fast emergency support after a breakdown, we offer the UK’s biggest range of portable air conditioners, air handlers, fans and fluid chillers for hire - ensuring your customers stay with you.

From exclusive boutiques to major multiples, retailers across the country rely on Andrews Sykes to keep their customers cool and content. The shopping experience is influenced by many things and maintaining a comfortable temperature is critical in encouraging customers to look, linger and spend. Our air conditioners, evaporative coolers and fans are ideal for enhancing the retail environment even on the hottest of days and in the most crowded of shops. Our equipment is so quiet and discreet your customers won’t even notice it, but they will certainly notice its effects. Available in single units or multiple installations, on short or longer term rental, the unique range of retail air conditioners from Andrews Sykes are elegant, energy efficient and environmentally responsible.

Shopping centres, malls and other major retail premises present particular challenges to their owners, managers and occupiers. Their large scale means that ensuring an even temperature throughout the building can be difficult. Permanently installed, centralised cooling systems are generally the responsibility of the centre manager or owner with supplemental cooling being the responsibility of individual retail tenants. At Andrews Sykes we have a huge range of hire equipment, from individual portable air conditioning units to large scale water chillers and air handlers. Our equipment is modular so it can be combined easily to form larger packages for retail malls and major stores - ideal for providing additional cooling during periods of exceptional weather or if fixed installations breakdown unexpectedly.

Andrews air conditioners, fluid chillers, air handling units and ventilation fans are available nationwide for immediate delivery at surprisingly affordable prices. So, before your customers vote with their feet and shop elsewhere, make tracks to our door and ask us for a free, no-obligation quotation.
