Should You Rent Or Buy A Spot Cooler?
Spot coolers are great to have for many different occasions, from outdoor events to business conferences that last a whole weekend. These coolers can even be useful in the event of a power outage or another emergency situation.
When it comes to spotting coolers, you can choose between owning one forever or borrowing one for a limited time. We often get asked about which is better, and the answer to this question isn’t quite clear, as either one seems like a better plan over the over, depending on the situation. So we have compiled four things to consider when choosing a spot cooler to either rent to buy.
How Long Are You Planning To Use The Cooler?
This should be the easiest question for potential spot cooler owners to answer. Many consumers want a spot cooler that they can use for the years ahead. It wouldn’t make sense for these people to sporadically rent out a spot cooler if they need to rely on one for the long term, so if you see yourself needing a spot cooler for more than one occasion, buy it and make it yours. If you only see yourself needing the spot cooler just for one occasion in the near future, rent it and save some money. If you aren’t sure how long you might need the cooler for, continue to read on for other points to consider.
Do You Need The Cooler Unexpectedly?
You might need to get a spot cooler due to an emergency, but it might be unclear for how long you need it for, or if you need it again following the emergency. In most emergencies, consumers tend to rent spot coolers until they no longer need them. However, if you tend to get power outages in your neighborhood more than seldom, buying a spot cooler can be a good idea too, so that you can use it in case of other emergencies in the future. If you understand how often you encounter blackouts in your area, you should be certain about whether or not to buy or rent a spot cooler.
Do You Expect Changes With Cooling In The Future?
If you see yourself needing a cooler for a long period of time, and don’t see that changing any time soon, then you should consider buying the spot cooler. If you are undergoing changes for your home or business, and you momentarily won’t have other means of cooling at hand, then you should definitely rent a cooler.
This also applies to seasonal changes, as well. If you live in a warm area and don’t get cooling in a certain room of the home, such as the bedroom or basement, it would be better to buy a spot cooler over renting it. Even though it might only get hot and humid for a few months during the year, you will always need to use it again next year and the years after that.
