Commercial-grade dehumidifiers protect your property from the devastating effects of water damage. Water damage occurs both naturally over time in high humidity environments and from catastrophic system failures. Regardless of the cause, here are the most common conditions where commercial-grade dehumidification services are essential to protect both life and property.
Mold and mildew will not only damage the structure of your building but it can exacerbate respiratory conditions such as allergies and asthma. While you can handle small spots of mold and mildew infestation using bleach, it's an entirely different story when it festers over a larger area. You will need to hire professionals to thoroughly get rid of the molds and this would incur high charges. It's important to address moisture issues right away, otherwise, molds and mildew will rot your assets. Rent or purchase a dehumidifier to tackle moisture problems instantly.
If you keep noticing condensation turning up on pipes, ceilings, floors and walls, this indicates a moisture problem. In addition, if you have a property in a flood-prone area wherein puddles of water form every time there's a heavy rain, there's a decent chance that moisture will be a persistent problem. Purchasing or renting a commercial dehumidifier is one effective way to protect your property.
Water and moisture can corrode and decay anything after some time. If the following signs are present in your property, perhaps it's time to invest in a commercial dehumidifier.
This damage can be extremely expensive to fix if you don't address the moisture problem right away.
If a musty odor is noticeable in your building, it is an indication of an excessive moisture issue. Besides aggravating respiratory conditions, it can also leave a bad impression on customers who enter your building.
A confined, humid space is a favorable habitat for pesky pests. Damaged walls or floors can serve as a portal of entry for these invaders to enter your building. This causes another filthy problem as these critters can leave droppings, feed on your foundation's material and cause costly damage to your assets.
If you witness any of these red flags, contact Americool LLC for a free consult. We’ll pave the way for your decision to purchase or rent a portable dehumidifier that will promptly tackle your moisture problem.

Whether your need is for worker safety or product protection, just know that AmeriCool has the perfect solution for you. Here’s just three ways dehumidification services are employed:
Flooding is a major threat to business properties no matter what the cause is (burst pipes or natural disasters).

Imagine your loss if your machines and products were to get drenched in water. When this happens, the ultimate solution is to dry it out quickly and thoroughly to prevent further damage and mold growth. Only a commercial dehumidifier can handle the job well.
Paintworks present specific challenges, especially when high humidity levels can cause coating failures. This is particularly true in shipyards when applying protective coatings to a ship. A commercial dehumidifier can create an environment that's conducive to paint application and curing. In addition, it will also make the work environment more comfortable for workers and promote productivity. So to keep projects on schedule and avoid reprocessing expenses, rent, or buy a dehumidifier.
Climate change can affect the humidity levels in workplaces and this impacts the health of the workers, causes structural damage to buildings, and affects overall sanitary conditions. In order to maintain the indoor air quality inside a building, dehumidifiers should be employed. The following industries can benefit from commercial dehumidifiers:
A rental commercial dehumidifier is a practical means to remove excess moisture from an area. Contact Americool LLC for information regarding rental or purchase of commercial grade dehumidifiers.

Below are answers to common questions we encounter from customers who seek portable air conditioner rental services in and around the greater Boston area:
Roll your AmeriCool unit into position, select room cooling or spot cooling, stand back, and enjoy the cold air. NOTE: If you are in an enclosed room, you will need to exhaust the warm air from the top of the unit out of the room. The drop ceiling space in a typical office will usually satisfy this requirement.
As a general practice, 400 square feet per 12,000 Btu/h's (12,000 Btu/h's equals one ton of air conditioning). This, however, does not take into account other room factors that may affect heat load. Contact your local distributor for a complete recommendation.
The temperature drop should be approximately 30°F in low humidity environments and at least 15°F in high humidity environments. (In high humidity environments, the unit is removing the humidity from the air)
Only the WPC-15000 comes with a factory-installed condensate pump to account for a large amount of condensate (water) the unit is removing from the supply air.
While the unit is in operation it removes humidity out of the air. AmeriCool collects the condensation in the tank.
Yes, all units come with thermostats to read supply and return air temperature.
In-Room Cooling mode, the temperature setpoint is based on the return air coming into the unit (side). In Spot Cooling mode the temperature setpoint is based on the supply air (cold air leaving the unit).
Regular washing and cleaning of the filters is the only recommended maintenance.
Yes, remove the white nozzle duct from the attached flange and there will be a grill to protect curious fingers from the fan.

Portable air conditioners are ideal cooling solutions for business structures like offices, facilities and commercial spaces. Whether you are planning to buy or rent, weigh first the following factors to come up with a sound decision.
The cooling output for PACs is calculated in BTU or British Thermal Units per hour with the higher rating implies greater capacity. The BTU rating is labeled in the Energy Guide of each portable AC unit. Take this into account when comparing different models. Make sure to opt for a capacity that complies with the square footage of the area that you need to cool.
Portable air conditioners may require electrical modification to your use space. Prior to purchasing, make sure you have the enough power and the correct receptacle in all spaces where you might conceivably use the portable cooling asset. The unit will likely be placed near a window for venting poses so plan your electrical considerations accordingly.
The Efficient Ratio or EER rating of a unit can also be seen on its Energy Guide label. The higher the rating means the set has better energy efficiency performance. Before you decide, scrutinize each available model and choose the one with the highest EER rating that meets your budget.
When a portable air conditioner cools, it condenses moisture out of the air. There are several options in terms of release. Essentially, cheaper portable air conditioner units have a collector pan that needs to be drained frequently. While self-evaporating air conditioners usually come expensive as it has the ability to release the condensate out by means of the air exhaust hose, or by reusing the liquid to cool the coils.
Portable air conditioners are standalone units equipped with a compressor, so expect and plan for the increased noise as compared to central HVAC systems. With that said, our system offerings are the most quiet portable HVAC systems on the market today.
