Are we heading for an early spring?
So after a relatively busy month due to the cold spell, it looks as though things are really starting to get quite a lot warmer from now on, with average temperatures hovering around the 8/9 degree mark and central London areas getting up to the highs of 15/16 degrees, the mildest of the year so far. We have noticed an increase in the rental of humidifiers as well as currently humidity levels are quite low, even buildings that use heat pump technology to heat or cool via fixed air conditioning, are beginning to hire evaporative coolers or humidifiers to add some humidity to areas.
We have been contracting for west end art galleries, providing them with our portable hum evaporative cooler/humidifier to prevent paintings or paper posters and wood antiques from getting damaged.
With it being unseasonably warm for February, the number of service and maintenance contracts have shot up. It is beginning to reach temperatures for the usual end of March time of year, and everyone is wanting their fixed air conditioning units serviced ready in time for the summer. We would advise to start enquiring about service and maintenance contracts if you have not already as in this industry the warm summers get extremely busy, especially towards late May/early June as that is when everyone changes the temperatures on their thermostats and something ends up wrong as they haven't be used in cooling mode for a whole year. Once again though, London Cool and Midland Cool are always on hand to help with engineers covering all areas of the UK.
In the Midlands, our hum evaps, evaporative coolers and portable temporary humidifiers are adding humidity for factories who manufacture things like PCB boards.
Our new big port-a-cool evaporative coolers are cooling the car industry so maybe we need to start thinking about ordering some more in time for a humid spring and considering records show spring has advanced 2-6 days per decade, we better had get a move on!
It amazes us how our portable evaporative coolers, and portable humidifiers are now all-year-round rental products for cooling and humidifying.
