Cooling Towers are high capacity HVAC support elements that exchange heat very effectively for large-scale cooling applications. After condenser water absorbs heat from an integrated cooling system, the water travels to a cooling tower. There, the water is brought into direct contact with air to lower the water temperature, before it is sent back to absorb more heat from the system.
Due to the heavy mechanical demands of these units, they tend to fail when not professionally managed. Thus there is strong rationale and value in renting cooler tower solutions.
For years we’ve served the greater New York City area and beyond with temporary rental cooling tower solutions. American Spot Cooling delivers, maintains, and operates cooling towers that range from 10 to 750 ton units.

A spectacular light show caused by an electrical emergency in Queens created moments of panic for some at LaGuardia Airport Thursday night.
Airline passengers were left in the dark inside the transit hub’s terminals, but why? Runways were also temporarily shuttered following the Con Edison voltage monitor malfunction which illuminated the New York skyline with an eerie blue-green hue.
The 13 minute power outage delayed some 15 flights from taking off for up to an hour and rerouted nine planes to other airports.
It left many wondering how an airport the size of LaGuardia, in a city the size of New York, shut down from a mere power outage. Shouldn’t there be an uninterrupted source of power on backup to keep the airport running right away?
“A power outage of this nature could happen at any airport,” LaGuardia General Manager Lysa Scully said.
But thousands of people were taken off guard over the holiday.
Nearby, Rikers Island prison reported no sustained power outage thanks to its backup system.
“LaGuardia has backup power, but it’s basically emergency backup power and not really a backup system that would allow the LaGuardia Airport to operate safely,” Cuomo said.
The runways were closed for 13 minutes as a precaution to make sure everything was safe.
“It’s very concerning,” she admitted regarding the temporary terminal outages. “We don’t want people in the dark.”
LaGuardia went through a rebuilding, but no backup power system was installed. So what’s the plan going forward to prevent what happened last week from happening again?
“Having LaGuardia backup generators that allowed LaGuardia to function is something that we’re going to further explore,” the governor said.

In any healthcare facility, especially hospitals, clean and efficient cooling is an essential element to infection control and overall quality health care. The well-being of patients, staff, and the temperature of life saving equipment can be compromised if the air conditioning system fails to deliver cool and clean air. In order to deliver high quality conditioned air, in-house HVAC systems must be maintained and eventually replaced over-time. Many New York hospitals wisely choose to rent portable air conditioners during system maintenance or during unplanned outages.
The biggest concern hospital facility directors have is making sure the equipment being used is clean and efficient. This is because there are infection control procedures that need to be followed in order to decrease the risk of air born illness and infection. Fortunately, American Spot Cooling is experienced in providing hospital administrators with rental air conditioners of all sizes and capacities to keep Hartford hospitals functioning at peak efficiency.
Infection control procedures have three main components that rental air conditioners must meet for use within a hospital setting. Once, all rental equipment must be sanitized before use; if equipment isn't sanitized, infection can spread through unclean air. Two, hepa-filtration must be used; by using hepa-filtration air particles that may be harmful to patients and staff are trapped instead of being circulated. Three, rental equipment must be well maintained and quality checked before delivery.

Recent history teaches us that hurricanes can and will devastate areas in and around Albany. After a hurricane and the resulting water and wind damage is not the time to build your business contingency operations plan for emergency HVAC and power restoration. We encourage you to call and team with us to build your contingency plans and to also discuss any temporary HVAC and/or power needs that you might currently have.
Hurricane recovery programs should include power generation to get essential equipment running again. Additionally, rental dehumidifiers in Albany, NY are imperative for eliminating water and humidity and to prevent mold once the water recedes. Dehumidifiers restore air quality by removing moisture from the air and regulating humidity. Less humidity is necessary because: 1) The area is less susceptible to molds and bacteria; 2) it reduces unwanted odor, 3) Decreases ambient temperatures. After a hurricane, high quality rental dehumidifiers help regulate the air and return the quality to normal and healthy levels.
When disaster (or even lesser contingency outages occur), businesses need to return to full operations in the absolute shortest time possible. Buildings, contents, and materials need to be cooled and/or dried as soon as possible. Dehumidifiers and the power to run them are essential immediately. To begin the recovery process, emergency rental services provide heavy-duty portable generators to cope with the extended power interruptions as a result of the wind and rain damage.
