Company warrants to Customer that all new Equipment will be free from defects in materials and workmanship, for a period of 1 year for materials and 90 days for workmanship.

Regardless of what representations may be contained in conversations, correspondence, labels, advertisements, owners manuals or warranty cards, Customer acknowledges that Company makes no warranty, express or implied, except the warranties provided in this Section. Customer acknowledges that it is not relying upon Company’s skill or judgment to furnish Equipment suitable for its purpose or any particular purpose. Company assumes no responsibility for the design of Equipment. To the extent Company personnel make recommendations as to applications, sizing, system design or any other matter, they do so to meet the Company’s own manufacturing processes.

THESE EXPRESS WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

No remedy is intended to be exclusive, and each remedy shall be cumulative and in addition to any other remedy provided for in these Terms or at law or in equity.

Assignment. These Terms shall be binding upon and shall inure to the benefit of Customer and Company and their respective successors.

Miscellaneous. These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of Minnesota. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between Company and Customer, superseding all prior communications and agreements between the parties. Those of Customer’s proposed terms and conditions which are in addition to or inconsistent with these Terms will not be given any effect whatsoever. No provision of these Terms shall be deemed waived, amended or modified unless in writing and signed by the party against whom enforcement is asserted.

Any notice provided for shall be in writing and shall be sent by certified or registered mail to the appropriate party at the address stated on the Invoice.

Payment. All invoices are due, without setoff, 30 days after receipt. Customer agrees to pay interest on all past-due sums at the lower of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the highest rate allowed by law.

Rental Pricing Guidelines

Prices do not include any applicable taxes of freight.

A Season Rental for cooling equipment is 6 months or less in length with all rented cooling equipment to be returned by November 1 unless the transaction calls for other terms. After the original 6 months are completed on a 6 Month Rental, the billing will start again on a 4 Week basis at 1/6 of the long term rate.

A Season Rental for heating equipment starts anytime in the fall and extends in length until May 31st unless the transaction calls for other terms.

The daily rate is only to be used at the end of a rental contract or as a “weekend” type rate.

The weekly rate is used after the minimum charge has been applied if the unit(s) are not used for a 4 week period. The weekly rate is also used to pro-rate a 4 Week rental that comes back prior to an even 4 week’s worth of billing. If someone rents a unit on a 4 Week rate but returns the unit after 7 weeks, the final billing should be for 3 weeks after an initial billing of one 4 Week rental. If the unit comes back after 45 days, the final billing would be 45 minus 28 (4 weeks = 17 days.) The billing would then be for 3 weeks since 3 days equals one week.

3 days = 1 week, 3 weeks = 1 month, and 3 months = 1 season.

Environmental Fee

The Environmental Fee is a fee on corporations in industry groups that use, generate, or store hazardous materials or that conduct activities related to those materials. The Environmental Fee allows TEMP-AIR to recover the costs related to environmental compliance and disposal of hazardous and controlled waste in our facilities. The fee covers regulated and non-regulated waste, including (but not limited to) waste disposal, Freon disposal charges, waste lubricant and oil, water filtration, parts washers, paint and solvents, electronics, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, filter disposal, rags, scrap metals, waste licenses, and environmental fees charged to us by other vendors.

The Environmental Fee is subject to modification should our environmental compliance costs change. The environmental fee is applied to the sum of your total equipment and service charges on your invoice or billing statement (excluding tax).
