The benefits of hiring a portable air conditioning unit for your office this summer
As businesses grow, it’s crucial to keep employees comfortable and productive. One way to achieve this is by providing an air-conditioned office environment. Air conditioning systems not only cool the workplace but also come with several benefits that impact your business positively.
It doesn’t matter what the size of the office space is that you are looking to cool, here at Newsome we have a range of portable office air conditioners including a range of portable office evaporative coolers suitable to hire at some of the most competitive air conditioner hire prices anywhere in the UK.

Air conditioning is not a legal requirement, but employers do have a duty of care.
The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 specifies a minimum temperature of 16C (13C if work involves considerable physical activity) but there are no specific maximum temperature recommendations. Even during a heat wave, employers are not legally obligated to provide air conditioning in the office though they must ensure temperatures are not extreme. Health and safety regulations stipulate that all workspace temperatures must be ‘reasonable’, and the temperature of the workplace is one of the potential hazards that employers must consider when doing risk assessments. One easy solution to avoid any unnecessary conflict in the office is to hire a portable air conditioner from Newsome as soon as the weather forecast indicates a heat wave is on its way. It’s not easy to get a consensus on what’s ‘extreme’ or ‘reasonable’ but one thing for sure is if you hire an air-con unit for your office you will be complying with any current health and safety guidance and protecting the business from any costly legal battles should office heat become a workplace issue.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have also advised that employers should investigate temperatures if a certain threshold of complaints from employees are received by the employer. For example, in non-air conditioned offices, 15% of the staff should complain before an investigation into workplace temperature is commenced, again this can be avoided by the swift deployment of portable air conditioning units in the worst affected parts of the office.
Over and above any perceived legal requirements or health and safety compliance, having air conditioning installed in your office (either permanently or through a temporary hire) has many benefits which could ultimately lead to increased productivity, reduced staff turnover, and overall increased profitability.
A portable air conditioner can improve air quality.
Air conditioning systems help filter the air by removing pollutants, allergens, and dust particles from the air, providing clean and fresh air. This is especially important for employees who may have allergies or respiratory problems, improving the overall health of the workforce.
Portable air conditioners can reduce humidity levels.
In addition to reducing the temperature, air conditioning systems also control the humidity levels, preventing the growth of mould and mildew. High humidity levels can be uncomfortable and lead to health issues, such as respiratory problems and allergies.
Air conditioning can increase productivity.
Research has shown that employees work better in a comfortable environment, and an air-conditioned office is one of the most effective ways to achieve that. Employees tend to be more productive when they are in a comfortable environment, leading to better results for the company.
Air conditioning in the office provides better health and comfort.
An air-conditioned office provides a comfortable environment, leading to better health and well-being for employees. Employees who are comfortable at work tend to be more satisfied with their jobs, leading to better mental and physical health.
Hiring air conditioning is a cost-effective solution.
Air conditioning systems are a cost-effective solution to keep employees comfortable, which in turn, improves their productivity. A well-maintained air conditioning system can last for many years, saving the business money in the long run whilst short-term hire can be a very low-cost instant solution.
Office air-conditioning can lead to better sleep and work-life balance.
Employees who work in an air-conditioned office can get better sleep, leading to a better work/life balance. The ability to get a good night’s sleep is essential for employees to function at their best, leading to better work results.
Air conditioning can also enhance technology performance.
Electronics, such as computers and servers, are sensitive to temperature changes, and an air-conditioned office helps maintain a consistent temperature, improving their performance and longevity.
Air conditioning systems and portable air conditioner units available to rent from Newsome come in various designs and styles, making it possible to have a system that complements the office decor, enhancing the office’s aesthetic appeal.
Air conditioning reduces the risk of heat-related health issues.
An air-conditioned office reduces the risk of heat-related health issues, such as dehydration, heatstroke, and heat exhaustion. By keeping employees comfortable, a portable or permanently installed air conditioning system can prevent these issues from arising.
An air-conditioned office can lead to increased morale and employee retention.
Employees who are comfortable and satisfied at work are more likely to stay with the company, leading to higher employee retention rates. Air conditioning systems contribute to employee comfort, leading to higher employee morale and loyalty.
Air conditioning can help reduce noise levels.
An air conditioning system can help reduce noise levels by providing a more controlled environment. In a heat wave, the default solution to cooling an office is to open the windows, but if the office is on a busy road this can increase the internal noise levels in addition to decreasing the internal air quality. A quieter office leads to better focus and concentration for employees, leading to better results for the company.
Air conditioning systems are designed to be energy-efficient, which means they consume less energy while still providing optimal performance. This can result in lower energy bills for the business, making it a more sustainable solution.
Remote control access
Modern air conditioning systems come with remote control access, allowing employees to control the temperature and humidity levels.
