Should you buy or hire air conditioning? Some factors to consider

Should you buy or hire air conditioning? Some factors to consider

If your air conditioning and cooling requirements recur each year, you are staying in your current location and installation of a fixed system is financially viable, then permanent air conditioning is often the best option. However, if you are on a short-term lease, in a listed building, cannot get the landlord’s permission to install permanent cooling equipment, or have restrictions on capital expense, then the hire of temporary cooling or air conditioning could be the perfect solution. If you are considering the purchase of a mobile unit, do factor in 1) you will have to store the unit whilst it is not in use; 2) prior to storage it will have to be properly drained and cleaned to avoid possible contamination; 3) air conditioning units require PAT testing.; 4) add the tax advantage of expense versus capital purchase and it’s easy to see why it’s almost always better to hire a cooling solution than to buy an ongoing liability.

Did you know?

Having a good quality air conditioning system installed in your place of work allows you to have closer control of the temperature. If your office buildings are either too warm or too cold, this could have an adverse effect. In fact, studies show that productivity drops by as much as four per cent per degree when temperatures rise above 27 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) in workplaces requiring manual labour.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should we regularly service and maintain our air conditioning systems?

    Poorly maintained systems have to work harder to provide the same air quality and temperature resulting in higher energy consumption. Planned preventative maintenance will save time, money and repair costs. It will extend the life of your system and components and make them function more effectively. These checks ensure compliance with the latest F-Gas regulations and highlight any harmful fluorinated gas leakage

     

  • We have a manufacturer's warranty so do we also need a service and maintenance contract?

    A Booth Air Conditioning maintenance agreement will satisfy the requirements and obligations of all the major air conditioning manufacturer warranties. It is important to be aware that manufacturers warranties are only valid if the equipment has been used and maintained in accordance with their specifications and recommendations

  • All maintenance providers do the same job. It's just about securing the lowest price isn't it?

    Booth Air Conditioning’s goal is to ensure all our clients can benefit from the lowest total cost of ownership for their air conditioning systems and assets. We begin by providing a highly detailed record of all your AC and ventilation assets – you will be surprised how often this differs from existing records. The resultant information helps to demonstrate your compliance with regulation and legislation – even more crucial as organisations return following the pandemic.

    Over time, this information allows clients to reduce the volume of guesswork, track the performance, costs and risks associated with each unit. It reduces surprises and helps to proactively budget months and sometimes years in advance. Can your current maintenance partner provide the precise timing of each activity, traceability of each decision and subsequent action?

    We can introduce you to Booth clients who have experienced dramatic reductions in remedial work and subsequently their total cost of ownership. All this delivered in conjunction with highly competitive maintenance fees

  • We are reasonably happy at the moment. Can you just provide a quote?

    Many clients originally found Booth after recognising it can be good business practice to test the market from time to time. Some challenged us to solve a long-standing issue their existing maintenance partner had failed to fully resolve. The most common introduction though has been to simply ask us to provide an alternative proposal. Our no-obligation and completely free site survey begins a short process that allows Booth to prepare a comparison quotation. It also allows us to establish if you are benefiting from the latest tools, techniques and best practices
