Air conditioning for server rooms

Most of today’s modern businesses require easy and consistent access to technology and digital resources, and in plenty of cases, this requires a data server room.

Server rooms, often in-house, consist of vital equipment to your business, and must be well-maintained and monitored in order to perform effectively.

One of the largest threats to server rooms is high temperature, as they are prone to overheating. This is especially true in busy office environments that are hosting large or strenuous networks.

If overheated, server equipment might malfunction, causing business downtime, system crashes, or even hardware damage. This can be detrimental to business operations. Alternatively, servers that run inefficiently over time can also impact on your company’s daily productivity, with slow connections or risk of data loss after an imminent disk failure.

Managing temperature and ventilation in server rooms

It is generally recommended that server rooms remain at a temperature between 20°C and 24°C at all times, although some can handle temperatures of up to 27°C. When server rooms reach 30°C or over, it’s likely that the equipment will be running at a dangerous operating temperature.

Servers also require proper ventilation, which helps prevent overheating as well as keeping air flow constant to keep all the components within the room cool and functioning.

In order to maintain a proper temperature on a consistent basis, businesses should invest in a properly installed air conditioning system.

By relying on a dedicated HVAC contractor, you can ensure that your systems are not only properly maintained and working, but that they are also energy-efficient and cost-effective to fit your organisation’s budget.
