Rescue AC Rentals for Retail Stores

Aug 8, 2022

In parts of the North and Northeast, many public buildings do not even have air conditioning. But when you operate a retail store in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, air conditioning is a necessity. That’s why when your air conditioning fails, it’s an emergency. Who should you call for temporary air conditioner rentalRescue Cooling!

Emergency Air Conditioning

Air conditioning did not become widely available in the U.S. until after World War II. It’s hard for us to imagine what life was like in the Dallas/Fort Worth area before that. Undoubtedly, those who can remember it don’t want to return to those days. Here in east Texas, it starts getting hot in April and the dial moves right to unbearable by June. Full relief doesn’t come until November. That’s a long cooling season

Being able to control the climate in your home or at your business is a tremendous advantage. Comfortable temperatures allow you to work better and more efficiently, so that when you relax, you feel more restored.

No AC, No Customers

But even if comfortable temperatures weren’t important to you, they’re important to your clients. No one wants to shop in a store that feels hot, stuffy and sticky inside. Whether your air conditioner is broken or just working poorly, not being able to cool your space will affect your business.

You have likely experienced it yourself — you walk into a store or restaurant and realize their AC isn’t working, and you turn right around and walk out again. It’s not like a brownout or power outage where all business are in the same predicament; when it’s just your AC that isn’t working, your customers will leave and take their business to your competitors. You can’t afford to let this happen.

Further, depending on what type of retail store you own, the lack of air conditioning could damage your products. If you sell cut flowers or live plants, for instance, or candy or chocolate, all of these could be ruined by high temperatures.

Humidity can be just as damaging. It can warp and wrinkle paper products and even affect the operation of your business’s computers. If any of your employees suffer from asthma or other health conditions that worsen in hot or humid conditions, they won’t be able to work without AC.

Waiting for an HVAC Contractor

If you own the building your business is in, you likely have an HVAC contractor that you work with for repairs and routine maintenance. But even the most conscientious contractor may not be able to come help you immediately. You may have to wait hours — or even days — for an HVAC contractor. If you don’t own the building and you rent it instead, you are at the mercy of your landlord who may have the same situation with their HVAC contractor.

HVAC contractors in Dallas/Fort Worth respond to so many emergencies that they sometimes can’t get to them all in one day. But if you wait and do nothing, you’ll lose customers. The solution is temporary air conditioning rental.

Industrial Air Conditioner Rental

When you call Rescue Cooling for HVAC rental equipment, we respond right away. That’s why our name is Rescue Cooling!

We keep two sizes of AC rental units in stock for different sized spaces. We can cool anything from a tiny boutique all the way up to a big box store. We’re known for telling our customers that we can cool any space in under two hours.

We bring the equipment you need to your location, set it up for you and show you how it works. Once your HVAC technician gets to you to make the necessary repairs, call us and we’ll come pick up the equipment.

From past experience, we recommend you wait to call us until you’re sure your HVAC has been fixed and is working properly. All too often the “fix” is unfortunately temporary, and you don’t want more interruptions to your business.

When you get a temporary air conditioner rental from Rescue Cooling, you can keep it for a day, a week, a month or however long you need it. If you have any questions about how it operates, you can call us anytime.

Occasionally, a retail store may need long-term portable AC rental when they are undergoing renovations. The plastic sheeting that contractors hang as a temporary wall is hardly sufficient to keep in your air conditioning. You may need to boost your cooling power with a portable unit.

Usually portable air conditioner rentals for retail stores are not long-term, but we want you to know that should the need ever arise, we’re here for you.
