If you live anywhere in the south, you know how hot it gets, especially at the end of spring and during the summer months. If you are planning an event during this time, you will want to consider renting an AC Unit to ensure the comfort of your guests and the success of your event.
If you are new to the world of renting air conditioning units, you may not know where to look. If you ‘Google’ a term such a ‘rental a/c units’ or ‘air conditioning options for an event’, you likely will receive many results of local air conditioning companies. There are many things to consider when determining which company you will go with. Here are three thoughts to keep in mind when calling companies to help you make the best choice!
- Temperature Control: More than anything, you want the air conditioning unit you choose to keep your guests cool and comfortable during the event. The right air conditioning company will have several cooling options. When talking to a sales representative, let them know how large of an area you want to cool and how cool you would like it to be (e.g. 75F). This will help them narrow down your options and allow you to pick the best air conditioner for your event.
- Price: Depending on the type of cooling equipment you need and the amount of equipment, prices can vary greatly, and of course, you want to get the best deal for your money. However, the company with the cheapest price may not always be the best. When speaking to different air conditioning companies, take into consideration their customer service, how quickly and efficiently they can have the air conditioning rental units set up and ready, and the quality of their cooling equipment.
- Quality of the Air Conditioning Rental: When purchasing rental AC equipment for an event, you want to make sure that it is of good quality and is not an eye sore. Look at pictures on the company’s website to see what the rental units look like. Also, make sure the unit is not overly noisy. Many rental AC units are designed specifically for events to ensure that guests can hear what is happening at the event and not the HVAC system. When talking to a sales representative, ask them about the quality of their event rentals and how much background noise they make.
