I know, I know, the headline makes it sounds like we're going to try to convince you that you need event tent air conditioning year round. Don't worry, we're not advocating running the AC in the dead of winter. However, here are some reasons why you might want to consider event tent air conditioning for the other three seasons of the year.
- Unseasonable weather - Nothing ruins a high traffic event like 90+ degree weather in the middle of April or May.
- Greenhouse effect - Even on balmy 70 to 80 degree days, a tent can heat up pretty quickly, especially with hundreds of sweaty bodies milling around inside. Clear-top tents can bake guests even on cool days!
- You're serving food - Do you really want to worry about spoilage and possibly ill guests?
- Flower and other living decorations - According to Teleflora.com, flowers prefer temperatures between 65 and 72degrees Fahrenheit. Unless all your decorative foliage is tropical, if it's too warm inside the tent your decorations could be over before the party is.
You can talk to your tent or climate control vendor about what type of system will work best for your event. Gone are the days when tent cooling meant a bulky, noisy, air handler at one end of the tent blowing all the air in from one end. AirPac's air conditioners are portable, discrete, and have a choice of color covers to match your decor. Multiple units can be placed at different spots along the tent to keep your event uniformly cool and conditioned.
When planning your next tented event, be sure to consider all the potential variables and consult a climate control professional to decide whether tent air conditioning is right for your event.
