Gambling DiceRenting 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.
