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.

Portable Commercial Heaters Keep Employees Productive – Boston, Atlanta

20 December 2013

Many of the workplaces around Boston and Atlanta are in older buildings. These buildings can be cold and drafty in the winter, and many have outdated or inefficient heating systems. If you are a tenant in one of these commercial buildings you don’t have the option of upgrading the central heating system. If you own one of these older commercial buildings, it is not always practical to upgrade the heating system. A portable commercial heater can make all the difference to the comfort and the productivity of your employees.

Replacing central heating systems is not always possible. Turning up the thermostat is a waste of money. Purchasing portable heaters means an initial purchase and continuous repairs and service. Also, if your office grows or relocates, what do you do with the portable heater your own? Renting portable heaters means you can end the contract if you move, or get a larger heating unit if you expand.

Portable heaters are also perfect for the factory floor, auto garage, manufacturing plant, or warehouse which can be uncomfortable in the winter. Staff will be more productive when they are comfortable.

5 December 2013

In the winter, no matter where you live, unplanned power outages can hurt businesses. When storms or accidents create issues and problems with electricity, a business owner comes to realize they need a backup commercial generator. Now the decision is to decide if your business should rent or buy a generator. The economics of your business need to be considered of course, but in most cases, rental generators are a better option.

First, understanding what kind- and how much- power you need for your business to run is imperative. American Spot Cooling can help you decide. Once this has been established you can consider your options regarding buying or renting a commercial generator. Understanding your budget is important. Commercial generator rentals are often more economical because there is not initial outlay of money for the purchase. Additionally, there are no maintenance, service or repairs issues.

Portable Coolers for Data Center Temperature Management – Boston, Atlanta

22 November 2013

As you are getting your business ready for the new year, consider better care and maintenance for you data centers. In fact, at the same time, you can also take better care of your budget. Rental portable air conditioners over purchasing makes more sense.

Keeping servers and data centers cool is the best way to improve its efficiency. Portable spot coolers will help computers and servers maintain performance, control energy use in the server room and maintain the temperature and humidity in the data centers.

The environment in which your servers are held has a huge impact on performance. Poor environmental conditions can damage your servers, your data and, ultimately, your business. Portable air conditioners are critical to maintain the temperature and humidity of your server rooms to keep your business running.

Renting these portable air conditioners makes sense. Not only does it limit your computer repair needs, it also stops your air conditioner repair needs. Rental companies will service and maintain you portable air conditioners. You can get as many as you need, rather than trying to increase AC size or move duct work in order to cool all parts of your server room. Additionally, when your company grows, simply rent a larger- or an additional- portable air conditioner instead of buying a larger unit.

Large data centers need uniform cooling, humidity, and air conditioning. Spot cooling systems for data centers help your computers run reliably and efficiently. For more information on spot coolers or portable air conditioners for your business in Boston or Atlanta, contact American Spot Cooling.
