A/C Broken? Get a Portable Air Conditioner Rental.

Aug 8, 2022

As April turns into May, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is getting ready for a long, hot summer. When your home air conditioner conks out and your family is sweltering, rely on the team at Rescue Cooling to get your home cool again. We provide fast and efficient solutions in the form of portable air conditioner rentals.

Summers are hot in Texas, and in Dallas, the average daily high temperature for April is 77 degrees. That may seem bearable, but indoors, the temperature is often much higher than that, and opening the windows doesn’t help much. Once we get to May, the average daily high temperature rises to 84. June is 92, July and August are 96, September is 89 and October is 79.

Medical Concerns

These high temperatures are not just annoyingly uncomfortable — they can be dangerous to your health.

Those with respiratory conditions suffer greatly trying to breathe freely in the heat. Breathing disorders affected by heat include asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, emphysema, chronic bronchitis, lung cancer, pneumonia and others.

Autoimmune disorders can also flare up in the heat, including lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.

Excessive heat can also bring on migraines.

The solution is to get your home cool again — quickly.

Room Air Conditioners, ASAP

Quickly is the key word, because the kind of problem that homeowners and business owners in Dallas/Fort Worth can run into is that they call an air conditioning contractor for repairs, but that repair person might not be able to come for hours or even days.

During this time, residents’ health might quickly deteriorate, especially if they are elderly.

But even if you or your family don’t have pressing health concerns, trying to live in a home where the temperature is hovering around 100 degrees is uncomfortably difficult.

This kind of heat makes sleeping almost impossible. When you haven’t slept, it’s hard to get through the day, whether you’re trying to work or you’re taking care of children. The children, in turn, are cranky and hard to manage because they haven’t slept either, and because they are so uncomfortable inside the home.

A/C Rentals in Dallas/Fort Worth

What can you do to stay comfortable while you wait for your AC contractor to come repair your unit?

You may think of going to buy a portable room air conditioner, but that solution is not particularly cost-effective. A room air conditioner costs hundreds of dollars. It’s heavy and difficult to install, and where will you store it once your A/C is repaired? Room air conditioner units are heavy and bulky. If you store it in the garage or a shed, it will collect dust, dirt and bugs, so that if you ever need it again, it may not work.

Plus, using a room air conditioner would mean your family would have to crowd into and sleep in one room.

A better solution is to call Rescue Cooling. We arrive at your home quickly with the emergency air conditioning you need to cool your home. We use:

  • 10,000 BTU portable air conditioners
  • 12,000 BTU portable air conditioners
  • 14,000 BTU portable air conditioners

The size of the portable air conditioner unit we help you select for your home will depend on the size of the space you want cooled. We can install a unit upstairs and another one downstairs if you want to ensure your whole home is adequately cooled.

Temporary Air Conditioning Rental Saves Money

When you call Rescue Cooling, not only are you saving money because you are merely renting a temporary air conditioning unit rather than buying it, but you save yourself time and aggravation too, because we arrive quickly and install the emergency air conditioning for you — you don’t have to go anywhere or do anything.

We tell our customers that we can get any size space cool within two hours. So once you put a call in to our team, it’s only a matter of time before we arrive and make your home comfortable again.

Once your AC contractor arrives and repairs your unit, you can call us and we’ll come back and remove the equipment. This is handy for a number of reasons. First, how many times does a repair person come to your home and, after diagnosing the problem, tell you it’s going to be another day or two before they can get the parts they need to get your system up and running again?

Or what if, heaven forbid, your unit can’t be repaired and you need to get a new one installed? New central A/C units are thousands of dollars, and you might need time to secure funding.

However long it takes to repair or replace your A/C unit, you will be able to use your emergency air conditioning from Rescue Cooling.

Another handy aspect of our service is that it allows you to remain comfortably at home. You don’t have to pack up the kids and head to the mall or the movie theater to cool off. Further, both of those options will undoubtedly cost you money. As will going to a hotel, even for a single night. When you’re traveling, a hotel is fun. When you’re forced to go to one in your hometown because your A/C doesn’t work, then hotels are expensive and inconvenient.

Rescue Cooling provides portable air conditioner rental units for residential and business customers throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We save you time, money and inconvenience. Call us whenever you need emergency air conditioning.
