Portable Air Conditioners for Server Rooms – Atlanta, Boston

28 February 2014

Portable air conditioners are an economical and easy way for businesses to concentrate cool air in your server rooms or data center. Server rooms and data centers are full of electronic equipment which runs hot more often than not. For maximum safety and protection of your equipment, it must run with a minimal of temperature fluctuations and within a very small temperature range window. Spot coolers and portable AC’s can handle these hot spots in server rooms.

As the hot spots mover throughout your data center, portable air conditioners can be relocated as needed. Because they are on wheels they are easily moved, relocated and transported to where you need them most in your business that need cooling. Because they are smaller and efficient to run, portable air conditioners are less expensive to operate than regular air conditioning systems.

Portable commercial air conditioners are perfect for data centers and server rooms where the temperature needs to remain constant. They help your business save on electricity as well. Instead of decreasing the temperature of your central air conditioner portable air conditioning cools the air only where you need it.

Commercial Heater Rentals for Supplemental Heat – Boston, Atlanta

20 February 2014

It has been unseasonable cold in both Boston and Atlanta this winter. Warehouses and factory floors that may have otherwise seemed ‘warm enough’ in winters past just are not keeping the employees happy this winter. It won’t help to turn up the heat on your permanent heating system. That would only raise the bills and the other parts of your company too warm. This is very inefficient.

Portable commercial heaters are an economical and efficient solution. Because you don’t need commercial heaters year round, or even all winter long, portable heater rentals are often a better solution than buying.

Renting portable heaters less expensive overall than buying a portable heater. First, there is no initial large outlay of cash for the purchase. Commercial portable heater can be rented with a long or short contract and then used immediately. When you rent heaters, there are no maintenance fees. Additionally, if you ever need a portable heater with more heat output, you can just rent a larger heater. No selling, no purchasing. Additionally, as a business owner, you will not be responsible for installation or repairs.

Heater rentals are perfect when you only need to heat part of a workspace, a workspace that needs additional heat, or for when the heating system has to be shut down for repairs and maintenance.

Renting commercial heaters is a quick and affordable. Contact American Spot Cooling for more information.

Emergency Rental Generators for Unplanned Power Outages from Winter Storms – Atlanta, Boston

14 February 2014

It is not too often that Atlanta sees a winter storm like the storm we saw this week. If your business was caught unaware and unprepared, you don’t have to let it happen again. Rental commercial generators keep the power on during unplanned power outages.

At some point this week, about 867,000 customers in Georgia had lost power. Power had been restored to more than 710,000 customers, but  as of late this morning, about 156,000 customers statewide were still without power.

Outages Friday were still being reported across the state from near the Alabama line to Augusta, The areas hardest hit in metro Atlanta earlier were mainly south of Atlanta, including Peachtree City, and Clayton.

A utility ‘customer’ means a home, office or building with a meter. A ‘customer’ is actually a meter. That means that the number of people affected by this week’s storm is vastly greater than the number of customers.

Statewide there is an average of slightly more than two people per electric customer. That would mean that the total affected by the power outages more than 1.7 million.

A rental generator gives businesses standby power. This is an independent power system that allows your business to stay open and continue to operate during a power failure.  Standby power is essential to most businesses. When your business loses power that can mean thousands of dollars in lost revenue. Emergency rental generators keep your business up and running during an unplanned power outage.

Portable Generators Will Keep the Lights on at the Super Bowl – Boston, Atlanta

30 January 2014

No one will forget when an electrical malfunction turned the lights out at the Superdome in New Orleans during last year's Super Bowl, interrupting the second half for 34 minutes. Playing Monday morning quarterback, everyone wished there were more portable generators on site.

This year, the organizers in New Jersey have been working with the NFL, the state Sports and Exposition Authority, portable generators and local utility officials to make sure that the lights don’t go out for the 100 million fans who will be watching.

In addition to finding and fixing any electrical system defects that might cause an outage, they've had to protect the power supply against the threat of an ice storm or other extreme winter weather too.

A football game with a rock concert at halftime takes some complex power. Not to mention the pregame events such as an outdoor tailgate party attended by 10,000 people at an adjacent racetrack. In total, the Super Bowl will require about 50 percent more juice than a game at MetLife Stadium: 18 megawatts of electrical capacity.

Safeguards have been put in place for the Super Bowl. Besides upgrading the infrastructure, officials also have installed separate portable generators, which are to be fueled with biodiesel, to provide an additional 6 megawatts of electricity. Much of the nonfootball extravaganza, including the halftime performances by Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, actually will be powered by the portable generators.

Granted, your business is not the Super Bowl, but it is most likely even more important to you than the big game. If you need to protect your business from unplanned power interruptions, portable rental generators can keep your business running.

Back-up Commerical Portable Air Conditioners Have Advantages – Atlanta, Boston

24 January 2014

Every business needs to keep their data center up and running and operating efficiently. In order to do this, the temperature needs to be perfect with no fluctuations. Even though we are mid-winter, data centers and the equipment that runs in them gets hot and warms the air to dangerous temperatures. The temperature of data centers needs to be kept constant and cool year round. Portable air conditioners can be very helpful in caring for your equipment.

Keeping your businesses data centers at the correct operating temperatures can be a challenge. Servers and computers that run your company’s networks and are designed to operate within a very specific temperature range that can only fluctuate by a couple of degrees in either direction. Minor temperature changes can cause servers and computer to fail, resulting in lost data and information. Portable commercial air conditioners and spot cooling can help keep your equipment at the right temperature.

Equipment fails, it can be replaced. It isn’t convenient, and it certainly is not cheap. But how do you replace lost information and data? You can’t. One of the main causes of server failure is overheating. Keep your business running by keeping your data centers cool with portable air conditioners.

Spot cooling systems are portable, so they can be moved around to the hot spots in your data center. Plan for immediate emergency cooling with portable air conditioners from American Spot Cooling. Contact us for more information.

Rent or Buy a Portable Commercial Heaters? Atlanta, Boston

9 January 2014

Many offices, construction sites, and manufacturing facilities need additional heat this time of year in Boston and Atlanta. There are two main ways to go about this. Your business can buy one outright or rent a portable heater for the amount of time that you need it.

Whether buying or renting a portable commercial heater is right for your business wiill depend on various factors. Below are some of the things you should think about when deciding which option is best.

Usage - If you’ll use a portable heater for more than half of the year and often need one renting can be a cost-effective option. There is no initial expense of buying the heater, and there are no maintenance or repair costs. Simply paying for the fuel or power to operate it will be your only cost along with your rental fee. Additionally, if you need to upgrade the size, renting is a good option because you only need to replace the heater with larger unit.

Maintenance - One of the main advantages of rental portable heaters is that you don’t have to worry about maintenance for the heater you’re using. Portable heaters need regular service to only make sure they are safe, and to ensure that they are operating efficiently. Make sure you factor this expense into your calculations if you’re considering buying a heater.

Purchasing cost - The type of heater you want to use should also affect your decision. You need to weigh your budget. Will the money you spend buying a heater be more than you will spend renting one for part of the year.

Portable Heaters To Keep Warm on Construction Sites – Boston, Atlanta

2 January 2014

Most office workers are turning up the thermostats on their heating systems, but this is a luxury most construction workers don’t have. They are often working on sites without power or permanent amenities, so keeping warm can be a challenge.

One of the obvious solutions to this problem is to use portable heaters. Here is a brief guide to the types of portable commercial heaters you can install, as well as how effective they are.

Portable heaters: the main options

There is a surprising selection of portable heaters available for use on construction sites. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but should give you an indication of what’s out there.

  • Diesel-powered heaters – Diesel heaters are well-suited to warming up large spaces as they’re very powerful. Direct models should only be used in well-ventilated spaces as they add moisture to the air, while indirect ones are fine where ventilation is restricted. They’re also good if you don’t have a power source.
  • Electric heaters - There is a variety of electric heaters available, but these don’t tend to be as powerful as their diesel-powered counterparts. They’re better suited to use in small spaces like site offices. Among the different types are ceramic, fan and convection heaters, to name just a few.
  • Propane forced-air heaters - These are another heating device that’s ideally suited to industrial spaces, as they provide a high volume of warm air. They’re also known for their efficient combustion.
  • LPG plaque heaters - These are gas powered, making them perfect onsite if you don’t have an electrical supply. They’re freestanding and easily maneuverable, but are better at providing directional heat than warming a large space.
  • LPG catalytic cabinet heaters - This kind of heater is great if you’re looking for a gas-powered device that’s safe. The main burners are protected by the case and you can add an extra guard for even more safety.
  • LPG bin heaters - The final kind of heater on our list is LPG bin heaters. They’re energy efficient and don’t need electrical power to run. They’re a versatile option as they can warm up a reasonable area (like a small warehouse) and are good for drying out buildings.
