With a Seasonal Rental, You Don’t Have to Gamble with Mother Nature

» Babfar. » News »

Renting temporary heating equipment on a monthly basis to save money is like gambling with Mother Nature. If we have a short winter, heater rental costs will be low. If we have a long winter, costs will be high. But, how can you predict the weather?

Babfar customers never have to roll the dice because they rent temporary heaters by the season. The rental fee for all sizes of propane and natural gas heaters is capped after three consecutive months. Steam, hot water, and oil heaters have a five-month cap. Once the cap is reached, customers can keep the units as long as they need them.

Typically, shopping involves collecting and comparing rental quotes from different vendors. But, rental costs only represent the cost of getting temporary heating units on site. Contractors may also find that “low-cost” temporary heater rentals cost more in the long run. For a true cost comparison, contractors should consider costs that occur during the entire rental period, which can represent 85% to 90% of total costs!

Others will provide valuable services that save you time and money (and a lot of headaches). What should you look for? When making comparisons, add these five services to your checklist:
