Matt DeLacluyse, RAECO Rents business development manager

In my IT career, it was common for people to identify themselves as Unix guys, Mac OS guys, or the Windows loyal. But I figured out pretty quickly that what really mattered was which one allowed me to get my job done most effectively?

And I see it every day in our rental business. Though brand managers would like us to standardize and rent only their products, it doesn't serve you for us to do that. You've invested considerable time and energy in learning how to use a particular instrument. It doesn't help you if I say, "No, you have to use the other brand."

So, whether you're more comfortable with one brand over another for mask fit testing, portable and personal gas detectors, combustion gas analyzers, personal noise dosimeters, sampling pumps, or particulate monitors, you can rent what you need through us.

The Ultimate Rental Experience is about getting what you need and what you expect, not what makes business easiest for the rental house. So call 866-736-8347 and talk to me or a member of our rental team. We'll be glad to help you out.

Till next time,

Furnace and Ventilation Tuneups for Fall

According to the calendars, and judging by the addition of long sleeves, sweaters, and jackets here in the Midwest: Summer's officially over. And as the weather turns consistently cooler, you'll find your building or plant furnaces running on a regular basis. So it’s time to think about annual inspection and tune-up.

Rent combustion analyzers for furnace efficiency testingMonitoring and tuning engines and furnaces to run efficiently and produce fewer emissions further reduces energy costs and the possibility of harm to workers and the environment.

As you'd expect, new furnaces and boilers operate at peak efficiencies. Older equipment be 20 to 30 percent less efficient than new units. And while you can't always completely get back to "as new" efficiency, routine furnace maintenance has been shown to reduce energy costs by as much as 10 percent. 

Ventilation testing and balancing toolsSending properly conditioned heated or cooled air to the right locations in the right amounts helps reduce energy costs. Restricted or limited airflow places an unnecessary strain on a furnace that can lead to increased repairs and a shortened lifespan.

By balancing air handling system and running efficiency tests on boilers, furnaces or generators, we can spend less on energy and make people more comfortable and healthy in indoor environments.
