Frequently Asked Questions

Hiring Air Conditioning ... F.A.Q's  

Q. How much does a portable air conditioning unit cost to hire?

Units can be supplied by us from as little as £10 per week.

Q. How noisy is a monobloc unit ?

As with most units, the monoblocs we supply have different fan speeds. Even at the higher speed the fan noise, on the units we supply, would still be indiscernible in the sounds of a normal busy office environment. If you are looking for the quietest unit possible then ask us about the PQ38 unit which was developed for us by the manufacturer thus providing a very low noise air conditioner to hire.

Q. If we don’t hire enough units will they still be effective ?

To maintain the right temperatures for comfort levels no matter how warm the weather gets, you do need to have the correct number of portable air conditioning units. If too few units are used then the temperatures will still rise on the hottest days and the comfort levels will drop, particularly mid afternoon in south/west facing offices.

Q. Do air conditioners raise the humidity of a room ?

No, monobloc units reduce the humidity as the water is removed out of the air passing through the unit. In the older models the water extracted would be collected and once full the unit would turn off. The models that we provide however vaporise any water collected and vent it to the outside through the connected hose.

Q. Do they use a lot of electricity to run ?

The amount of electricity consumed by each unit is dependant on the situation in which it is installed. The unit will only operate on demand when the ambient temperature rises above the desired level. The monobloc units typically use about 700 watts when running.

Q. Does a portable air conditioning unit have to run constantly ?

As there is a thermostat built in, this turns off the unit when the required room temperature is reached.


Practicalities, installation and service provided...

Q. Once a unit is installed, what maintenance does it require ?

To ensure the unit works to its full potential and you get the maximum benefit there is a weekly care procedure, which needs to be carried out. We provide the instructions so that the air filters can be cleaned – a simple and quick process

Q. Can they go anywhere in the office/building ?

The monobloc units are required to placed next to a window so that the warm air hose can discharge the heat from the room outside through the window or ventilation system

Q. How big is the warm air hose used for discharging the heat ?

The size ranges from 130mm up to 160 diameters on larger units. Fish tails and other fittings are provided as required to ensure that the most efficient installation is provided.

Q. What power supply does a portable air conditioning unit need ?

A normal 13 amp supply from a wall socket is all that is required. Extension leads can always be used to ensure the unit is placed where required.

Q. How many units would I need ?

That would depend on a number of factors, including room size, electronic equipment used within the room etc. PCs and electronic office equipment will produce heat which will add to room temperature. We are happy to provide free advice over the phone to estimate the number of units and the type of air conditioning you are likely to require.

Q. How long or short can I rent them for ?

Hire can be agreed for a daily or weekly basis for a special event or any temporary cover. We also provide monthly and even yearly hire to cover your business or long term server room requirements.

Q. Could you deliver out of ‘normal’ office hours ?

We can offer this service if your business needs dictate. Installation however is always carried out with minimum disruption.

Q. Who takes responsibility for the safekeeping of the units we’ve hired ?

Other than normal wear and tear, you are responsible for any loss or damage once the units are installed. Should there be complete loss of a unit then this will be taken into account on your order. During the hire of the portable unit/s and until collection or despatch to us, their safekeeping is your responsibility.

Q. Can I move them to another building/location ?

This is possible providing we are informed and agree to the move in advance. You will need to fax or email us to give us details of any movement proposed.
When the units are collected at the end of the hire, they will be collected from the original location or as agreed.

Q. When we no longer need the units how do we finish the hire and get them removed ?

The period that you wish to hire affects the cost charged for the service, providing that you have hired for the minimum agreed period then you may finish the hire or choose to continue hiring at the same rate until it is no longer needed. To terminate the hire you need to notify by email, fax or letter then the contract will be concluded. Hire periods are in full weeks. We will collect the unit/s shortly afterwards, at a pre-agreed time and the units collected from your premises.
