Although AC may simply seem like a luxury item, the truth is that extreme temps can be life-threatening. In fact, if according to Mayo Clinic, your core body temperature reaches 104 degrees you’ll need medical attention. If you are a business owner, you also have the added responsibility of providing a safe and healthy workspace for your employees and that definitely includes keeping temps in a safe range. If your business space is experiencing AC failure or an AC system isn’t currently installed, the rental air conditioner could be an option. Here are several things you should look for in rental AC.
Cost to Run
One of the most important factors you’ll want to consider if you are running AC for an entire office space, will be the cost of running the unit. ACs generally use a lot of energy and that can add up. When you talk with an AC rental company, be sure to add thorough questions concerning how much you can expect to pay when running it. Also, be sure to add this amount to the overall amount of renting.
Size of Unit
You will also need to get some really specific details on what size of unit you will need for the size of the space you need to cool. Portal AC units are designed with specified strengths in order to cool specific-sized areas. The rental AC company will need to know how big the spaces are where each unit will be placed. This will help them better recommend a unit to you for your purposes. If you put the wrong-sized unit in a space, the unit may work too hard to cool a space that is too big. This isn’t an efficient use of energy.
Closely related to size and cost will be the overall energy consumption that the unit will pull. This is an important factor because you’ll need to ensure that the energy available will support the energy that is being pulled by the unit. If your office space is part of another larger space shared by other businesses then you’ll also need to check to make sure that you are allowed to use the units as well and that their use will not disrupt the energy use on the property. You will also need to make sure you have the proper outlets to hook up the units as well.
