Many offices, construction sites, and manufacturing facilities need additional heat this time of year in Boston and Atlanta. There are two main ways to go about this. Your business can buy one outright or rent a portable heater for the amount of time that you need it.
Whether buying or renting a portable commercial heater is right for your business wiill depend on various factors. Below are some of the things you should think about when deciding which option is best.
Usage - If you’ll use a portable heater for more than half of the year and often need one renting can be a cost-effective option. There is no initial expense of buying the heater, and there are no maintenance or repair costs. Simply paying for the fuel or power to operate it will be your only cost along with your rental fee. Additionally, if you need to upgrade the size, renting is a good option because you only need to replace the heater with larger unit.
Maintenance - One of the main advantages of rental portable heaters is that you don’t have to worry about maintenance for the heater you’re using. Portable heaters need regular service to only make sure they are safe, and to ensure that they are operating efficiently. Make sure you factor this expense into your calculations if you’re considering buying a heater.
Purchasing cost - The type of heater you want to use should also affect your decision. You need to weigh your budget. Will the money you spend buying a heater be more than you will spend renting one for part of the year.
