7 Reasons Businesses Use Portable Air Conditioners

Jan 19, 2008
As utility prices rise, organizations are trying to come up with creative ways to deal with heating and cooling problems. Many are finding that portable air conditioners, or spot coolers, provide cost effective solutions to temporary or isolated cooling needs.

Businesses use portable air conditions for a variety of money-saving, productivity, and convenience reasons. In this article, we will talk about 7 ways that businesses are using portable air conditioners to create a safer and more productive business environment.

Essential Cooling in Times of Air Conditioning Failure or Maintenance

When the central air conditioning goes down or must be shut down for servicing, everything comes to a halt. Not only are employees less productive in the uncomfortable environment, electronics will actually fail. Renting portable air conditioners can be the difference between closing temporarily and business as usual.

Eliminating Hot Spots

Some buildings have hot spots due to window exposure, presence of electronics, or a high concentration of employees in one room. Rather than cooling the whole building, it is cheaper to get a portable unit and deal with just the problem areas.

Cooling Server Closets

Small one- or two-person offices are not likely to have a dedicated server room with independent server room air conditioning. However that business may still need a primary server to support remote employees, host a web site, or provide normal day-to-day IT needs. Years ago it was possible to install the server in a closet and forget about it, but computers today put out too much heat. A portable cooler deals with the large amount of heat in a small space without needing to re-duct the entire office.

Cooling Warehouses or Other Temporary Offices

Imagine a situation where there are one or two offices located inside a warehouse. Depending on what is being stored, it is very possible the warehouse does not need much climate control. However the people do. Portable air conditioners can easily cool the offices and vent out into the warehouse.

Making Buildings with No Air Conditioning Tolerable

Some buildings are constructed with no central air conditioning because they are not needed at the time. That does not mean today's climate is the same as when the building was put up. As cities grow, the heat island effect can substantially change climate all around the city. Suddenly a building is too hot to work in, but it would be prohibitively expensive to install a central air conditioning unit. Portable units save the day.

Handling Seasonal Needs

Some buildings don't need air conditioning during normal conditions, but the occasional July heat wave suddenly makes the building unbearable. Use of portable air conditioning allows the owner to keep the place cool for far less than a central system would cost.

Encouraging and Rewarding the Weekend Workers

Large office buildings often shut down their environmental controls over weekends and holidays. However if you have people working overtime, they need to be comfortable to do their jobs effectively. Rent spot coolers to get you through the crunch time.
