The United States HVAC equipment rental market is a growing niche, currently valued at about $550 million according to a study produced by Verify Markets.

The report says that every company and organization needs to include an HVAC contingency plan as part of its comprehensive crisis-response strategy

The $550 million HVAC equipment rental market is expected to continue to grow with the recovering economy, GDP growth and new building construction. Market growth is also the result of a shift in end-user preference to renting equipment rather than purchasing it.
