Does Your Facility Have an Equipment Rental Plan for Emergencies?

January 14th, 2016

If the answer to that question is ‘no’, you should. Emergencies and disasters happen, and total air and power failures can be hugely detrimental to any facility. Equipment rental provides peace of mind for power and HVAC when these disasters happen, and it’s easier than you think to find rentals for your property.


Make sure you have an HVAC equipment rental plan before emergencies happen.

If you’re wondering how HVAC equipment rental works, and why you should have a plan in line for your facility, keep reading for more helpful information.

Equipment rental and HVAC solutions

If you’re set up for an equipment rental plan, you’re covered in emergencies and disasters. Most companies who rent HVAC and other systems equipment have several locations for quick access to the equipment you need. Heating, cooling, and power solutions can all be a part of equipment rental. Generators and RTUs are popular rental equipment available and prepared for any emergency situation.

Even if your facility doesn’t encounter any emergencies or disasters, it’s still important to have a backup plan for maintenance and repairs. Sometimes, systems can be down longer than expected in these situations, and equipment rental can provide help where needed.

The cost of losing air and power

At the minimum, losing power or HVAC failure is an inconvenience. On a larger scale, especially in large or busy facilities, it can be extremely costly and incredibly troublesome. The longer systems are down, the bigger your problem as a facility manager becomes. However, with a pre-established equipment rental agreement, a facility’s functionality can be restored in about a third of the time it takes to locate temporary equipment in an emergency.

Facility managers should not wait until their HVAC or power fails to find a solution. A contract or agreement for equipment rental should be in place before emergencies strike to resolve the issue in the quickest, most efficient manner.
