Home » Air Conditioning Hire » Comfort Cooling Hire

Comfort Cooling Hire is the process of regulating temperatures to create a consistent working environment all year round. In summer this means circulating cooled air within a controlled environment, while winter requires heating.

For the most effective and efficient environmental management, comfort cooling is achieved as part of a wider HVAC – heating, ventilation and air conditioning hire – deployment.

These integrated systems use a range of technologies, including Air Chillers and Heat Pumps to ensure that temperatures are maintained within defined ranges.

The need to manage environmental temperatures within the workplace is well documented. A study carried out by Berkley National Laboratory found that variance of just a few degrees had a major effect on productivity – employee performance peaked at between 21-22ºC, tailing off as temperature increased. When temperatures reach 30ºC, productivity drops buy almost 9% per employee.

Comfort Cooling Hire is extremely effective at maintaining optimum temperatures for productivity. With the potential to boost productivity by 9% per employee, the investment in Cooling technologies will quickly repay itself.


Maintaining a consistent temperature in your office will help keep employees comfortable and productive. Comfort Cooling Hire will be of particular importance during the Summer months, preventing work-spaces becoming too hot, or reaching the magic 30º mark at which productivity drops off rapidly.

Air Conditioners typically provider the Cooling required to maintain a pleasant working environment, although larger buildings may benefit from a larger Chiller Hire unit. If your business feels that capital investment in permanent Comfort Cooling Hire cannot be justified, Air Conditioner Rental may prove a more cost-effective solution for creating the environment your employees need.

Retail Outlets

Comfort Cooling is vital for creating an environment that makes shoppers feel welcome. Because the more comfortable they feel in your stores, the more positive their shopping experience – which typically results in more sales.

Air Conditioning should be a standard part of any new retail development; those stores that lack Comfort Cooling should seriously consider retro-fitting an HVAC system in the near future.

In the short term, or for buildings that do not require year-round cooling, hiring Air Conditioning will provide an acceptable alternative to permanent HVAC installations.

Commercial Buildings

Other buildings such as factories and commercial enterprises like leisure centres and sports facilities may also benefit from Comfort Cooling, making conditions more amendable to people engaging in physical activity. Cooling the temperature in these buildings will reduce the discomfort often associated with exercising in high temperatures, encouraging clients to return time and again – particularly as their own performance is improved by the environmental conditions.

Modern Chiller Units and Heat Pumps are key to the efficiency of these systems, with innovation in variable speed scroll, screw and Turbocor compressors making huge energy saving by maximising part load efficiency when the buildings are under utilised or in Autumn or Winter huge savings can be made.

4 pipe heat pumps that allow for simultaneous Heating and Cooling and using the waste heat from the Cooling cycle to be added to the heating cycle massive heating savings can be achieved.

Cooling/Heating Calculators

Our calculator tool will quickly help you determine an approximate heating and/or cooling capacity for comfort cooling purposes. You simply enter a few key facts and then press “calculate” for a guide figure which is often helpful for initial planning purposes.
