LONG BEACH, Ca — MovinCool®, a brand of DENSO Corp., the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial spot air conditioners, has published a guide to help buyers make the most of their money when investing in portable cooling solutions for the workplace. The white paper, “Portable Spot Air Conditioners: Determining Total Cost of Ownership,” explains what buyers need to know to comparison shop for the best value.

“This easy-to-read report gives prospective buyers the information they need before they commit valuable resources,” said MovinCool Sales Manager David Keller. “As the manufacturer that pioneered spot air conditioners to meet the cooling needs of our own automotive parts factories, we’re eager to share our expertise.”

Getting the best value starts with quality. A well-built spot air conditioner requires no maintenance other than periodic cleaning, is easy to install, and offers years of trouble-free service. Some lower-priced brands have inaccurate capacity ratings leading to higher electricity bills, frequent repairs and a shorter life span of the unit. The cost of owning the lower-priced unit soon skyrockets due to the mounting expenses.

“Quality is crucial,” Keller said. “Our guide includes a comprehensive checklist of what details to look for to ensure buyers are getting a reliable unit and not one prone to failures, repairs and lost productivity that drives up costs.”

Quality equipment also comes with an extended warranty that covers parts and labor. Dependable service that includes on-site repairs is another sign buyers are getting the best deal.
