On first glance, purchasing HVAC equipment may seem to make the most financial sense. However, a number of factors add weight to the HVAC equipment rental equation. Read on to learn more about the benefits of renting HVAC equipment.
You may plan adequately for your HVAC needs, but there’s always the possibility of an unexpected mechanical failure of your heating and cooling system taking place or a natural disaster knocking out power. You can rent heating and cooling equipment in such situations to provide an immediate solution.
The larger HVAC rental companies usually position equipment at certain strategic locations all over the country to respond to consumer needs quickly.
When you only need to meet short-term needs, a permanent solution would be uneconomical. You could get temporary equipment when hosting a special event to meet the comfort needs of the attendees or reduce stress on the main HVAC system.
Renting air handlers, rooftop A/C systems, or other equipment helps maintain occupant productivity and comfort during a large-scale HVAC retrofit, which can last for weeks or months, or as HVAC pros perform routine maintenance on your main system.
Get the Right Unit
A significant benefit of renting HVAC equipment is that you get top-quality equipment. Rental companies provide the HVAC unit that’s best suited to your needs.
When you buy an HVAC system outright, you’re responsible for maintaining and repairing it as needed. Reputable companies provide hassle-free maintenance to ensure your rental equipment performs to the highest standards.
When renting equipment, it’s essential to ensure that there’s a standing maintenance agreement with the rental company. Such an agreement can cut response time by as much as two-thirds and ensure your unit is always kept up to date.
As you have seen, renting a unit that you’ll eventually relinquish to the rental company comes with a different set of responsibilities and benefits to buying a new unit.
