Thinking about getting an air conditioner but worried about the high cost? You may be pleased to know that you can now rent an AC instead of owning one.

 

There are many rent-an-AC businesses in town. Most will charge around $25 per month while some may charge well over $40 for newer models and on-site services and repairs.

Summer is fast-approaching and before long the tropical heat will be in full swing.

It is a busy time for stores that sell air conditioners as people are gearing up for another hot summer. They are, however, quite pricey as even a basic model can set you back at least US$300.

Thinking about getting an air conditioner but worried about the high cost? Luckily, you can now rent an AC instead of buying one.

“It just makes sense. I don’t want to pay in full for something I will probably use for only two, three months a year. After the hottest months, we will just switch back to using fans to save on electricity,” said Trần Quốc Huy, a HCM City resident who just signed a contract on a two month rent of 2 AC units for his house.

There are many rent-an-AC businesses in the city. Most will charge about $25 per month while some may charge more than $40 for newer models and on-site services and repairs. Installation is free but renters are often asked to put down a deposit, which will be returned at the end of the rental period.

“We have a little boy over three years-old. He sleeps much better through the night with the AC on. We used rent-an-AC last year for three months. It costs us a bit more than $90, a fraction of the price for a new unit,” said Trần Kim Nguyên, a mother from District 4 in HCM City, “We decided we would go with it this year, too.”

Should you find it’s time to replace that old and noisy AC unit on the wall, maybe take a moment to think whether it is better to rent one or to buy one. You won’t have to clean them often, either. That must count as a plus for the rent-an-AC businesses, right? — VNS
