Don’t sweat it! The benefits of air conditioning hire, explained

Why consider hiring an air conditioning unit this summer?

As the summer months approach, facilities managers and decision makers start to worry about how they will keep their staff and customers cool in hot weather. One option that is often overlooked is hiring an air conditioning unit. If you only need an air conditioner for a short period of time, due to fleeting season demand, for instance, then hiring may represent a better choice than committing to a purchase. With a rental agreement, you’re not tied into a long-term commitment and need not be concerned with storage, installation, or other potential perceived inconveniences.

The most obvious advantage is to be able to freely control internal temperatures when seasonal hot weather strikes. Air conditioners can also improve the air quality of indoor spaces – particularly when HEPA filtration is used. This reliable technology can help trap pollutants and other harmful particles, which can be hugely beneficial for those with respiratory issues or related conditions.

When is the best time to start looking at air conditioning hire?

Our specialists at Andrews Sykes recommend that clients start looking towards hiring an air conditioner unit once spring arrives – so now! We do and can put together air conditioning packages at short notice, and during periods of peak demand, but we always advise securing your units as early as possible to ensure you are sufficiently prepared for a heatwave.

What options do I have when it comes to hiring an air conditioning unit?

At Andrews Sykes, we have a wide range of cooling and air conditioner units available for hire. Whether you need a cooling fan or a portable air conditioner, we can help you find the right fit for your space and budget.

What are the benefits of hiring air conditioning?

We’ll help you chill out this summer, and here are four underrated benefits of renting an air conditioning unit:

  • Cost-effective – We guarantee that you can beat the heat without breaking the bank. Hiring an air conditioner can be a cost-effective option for those who only need it for a short period of time, such as during the summer months. Rather than investing a large sum of money into purchasing an air conditioner unit, hiring one can be a more budget-friendly choice so you can keep expenditure down but comfort levels high.
  • Flexibility – Hiring an air conditioner unit gives you the flexibility to choose the size and type of unit that best fits your needs. Our wide range of temporary cooling options means that you can easily find the right fit for you.
  • Convenience – Our air conditioning units are a portable paradise that can be placed just about anywhere. Hiring an air conditioner can be a welcome option because your chosen supplier will typically deliver and install the unit for you. Air conditioner units are mobile, which means they can be positioned into even the most inaccessible areas. At Andrews Sykes, our telephone lines are available 24/7 to cover all emergency requirements, and we guarantee a four-hour response time from your original enquiry.
  • Energy efficient – Hiring an air conditioner unit can be a more energy-efficient choice than purchasing a permanent unit. This is because you can choose a unit that is appropriately sized for your space, rather than purchasing a unit that is too large or too small. In addition, a reputable hire company will constantly update their rental fleet, so you can be confident your selected equipment will incorporate modern components and technologies to keep operational costs as low as possible.
