The Benefits of Hiring Air Conditioning Units

Are you considering hiring an air conditioning unit this summer? Before you do, there a few things that you should consider, to help you to determine which units will be most suitable for your needs.

Firstly, where is it going to be used?


Commercial Air Conditioning  

Employers have a duty of care to their employees and customers and must provide safe, suitable environments. This means that in extreme heat, it’s their duty to provide equipment that keeps the location cool. For some, this may be as simple as using fans to bring down the temperature in a room, but to provide the best conditions an air conditioning unit will often be the best answer. 

Air conditioning units are usually found installed in supermarkets, offices, and restaurants, but can also be installed in large factories, warehouses or any other commercial or setting. However, their use is not just restricted to these permanent installations, which can be costly, particularly when our heatwave only spans a short portion of the year here in the UK. Instead, we can provide a wide range of portable units, in a variety of shapes and sizes, designed to keep you cool in a convenient, cost-effective way, for as little or as much time as you need. 

Domestic Air Conditioners  

While many will hire air conditioning units for their commercial premises, they are also a big hit in domestic households during the heatwave. Sometimes sitting in front of the fan just won’t cut it, particularly in properties that are exceptionally warm. Why not hire an air conditioning unit for the warmer months, so that you can keep cool in the comfort of your own home.  

Indoor and Outdoor Cooling 

We can provide a variety of versatile air conditioning units, with options suitable for both indoors and outdoors, keeping you cool on the job no matter where you’re working.  

The Different Types Of Air Conditioning Units

We have a whole range of air conditioning units available, including:  

Evaporative Coolers 

Evaporative coolers, such as our Evaporative Cooler, are fantastic versatile units that are able to work effectively both indoors and outdoors, making them wise choices for both warehouses and restaurants. These portable machines can be moved from one location to another simply and efficiently, making them a handy addition to any workplace.  

They work to evenly distribute the air and have several settings to determine how cool they make the air. Not only are they useful in the hottest weeks of summer, but they can also be used to create humidity in cool dry seasons.  

Industrial Air Conditioners 

Industrial air conditioners are ideal for cooling large areas in the workplace. Whether you have a large warehouse or other open space, these are deceptively powerful and are available in two different sizes. 

With the latest EC fan technology to minimise noise and maximise efficiency, these are ideal for any busy workspace, keeping you cool without the distraction of noisy fans.  

Exhaust Tube Air Conditioners 

Exhaust tube air conditioners are designed to be used in offices, where minimal background noise is required so as not to disturb workers during their day. These nifty little units are extremely portable, very efficient, and easy to use. Robust and capable of daily use, they will produce large volumes of cool air in an efficient manner. 

Ideally, they should be positioned so that the exhaust tube is directed out of an adjacent window, however, the heat can also be removed via a suitable ceiling void or other unused space. 

Industrial Rapid Fans 

Industrial Rapid Fans are capable of providing exceptional airflow, their impressive performance making them ideal for use both indoors and outdoors alike. While they are so powerful, they are also portable, making them ideal for use on-site when temperatures are rising too high.  

Best suited to larger indoor spaces due to the amount of air they produce, anybody in a building such as a large open plan office to an extensive warehouse may benefit from these machines. Built to withstand the rigours of your industry, with three-speed settings and the ability to cool a larger environment, these are the ideal solution for many commercial units. 

How to choose which product is right for you?

Now that you’ve seen a selection of our machinery, you may be wondering how to decide which unit is the right one for you. Some of the things that you must determine are: 

  • How big is the environment you are trying to cool? 
  • How noisy is the optimum background of your unit, i.e. offices need quieter machines so as not to disrupt important calls, whereas factories may already be quite loud. 
  • Are you trying to cool indoors or outdoors? 
  • How much space do you have available for your unit? 
  • Where will your unit be positioned?  
  • How portable does your unit need to be, will it be moving from one location to the other frequently?  

By taking all of these factors into consideration, you will be able to eliminate some machines from your mind while favouring others.
