Running Hot and Cold: Why it Makes Sense to Rent HVAC Equipment

Renting HVAC equipment comes with a host of benefits including onsite consultations, fast equipment delivery, onsite repairs and 24/7 technical help.


Upon first glance, buying certain types of HVAC equipment might seem to make more financial sense for companies that use it often. But there are a lot of factors to consider that add value to the rental equation, including emergency response, technical expertise, customization and access to a wide variety of late-model equipment including mobile chillers, cooling towers, electric high-temp heaters and desiccant dehumidifiers.

“Sometimes you can plan for HVAC needs,” said David Scott, Region VP of Power & HVAC for United Rentals. “But unexpected events like building system failures and natural disasters is where a quick response from a rental company can ensure that any down time is as minimal as possible.”

Fast Access to Equipment in Emergencies

Whether a storm knocks out power to a hospital or existing systems can't keep up with demands during extreme temperatures, sometimes you need HVAC equipment in a hurry. United Rentals offers 24-hour customer service, including onsite consultations and a dedicated Power & HVAC helpline. You can even have highly trained technicians monitor your site anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Optimized routing, dispatch and equipment loads make deliveries and pick-ups fast and easy.

HVAC Equipment Tailored to Your Needs

If you buy your own HVAC equipment to keep on hand for various types of projects, will it be the right equipment for each individual job, or will it just have to do? Do you have an HVAC expert on staff? Are you capable of making all of the necessary maintenance and repairs, and upgrading the equipment when it's out of date?

One of the main benefits of renting HVAC equipment instead of buying is that someone else takes care of all of this for you, making sure that you've got exactly what you need, when you need it.

When you rent, you've got a wide range of top-quality equipment at your fingertips, whether you need to cool a small warehouse full of perishable items or keep an entire medical center climate-controlled. The Power & HVAC division of United Rentals also maintains an inventory of industry-specific specialty equipment. Engineered solutions are customized to your specific needs, and United Rentals has the ability to work with manufacturers to develop new configurations when they're required.
