Server Cooling - Air Conditioning

server room air conditioning - different types

Server room cooling is critical to many companies with internet and communication systems that are controlled by server based systems. All these systems require some type of air conditioning cooling system in order to operate in there optimum temperature range. When temperatures of over 35 degrees are experienced many systems will either shut down, or cause unexpected rebooting of computer systems.

There are many types of systems available to cool server room installations and our sister company Saturn Sales Limited can advise on the most appropriate type of air conditioning products for you application.

There are numerous points to consider depending on the size of the server room to cool. Often these rooms are very small, so the physical size of the air conditioner to be fitted is important and how for example how to be able to route the services to the indoor air cooling unit, need to be carefully considered.

Another prime consideration is how important your server communication system is to you and the consequences for instance if the air conditioner unit should fail, due to overheating. If you cannot function should overheating occur we strongly suggest that you consider the installation of a back up air conditioning unit to cover any failure of the main system. The initial outlay may seem expensive but consider this against the cost of your company not being able to operate due to the failure of your communications system, can result in costly repairs.

Questions we get asked in relation to air conditioning and heating

How do I work out what size air conditioner I need to keep our server systems cool? Well all electrical items emit heat when they are running, servers are just the same. If you look at the rating plate on the back of the server it will give you its maximum electrical load for instance 1.5kw so of you had two servers it would be 3Kw. You would then match the output size of a suitable size air conditioner unit to dissipate the heat, in this case a 3.5kw system. Keep in mind however if you intend to increase the number of servers in the future you need a large enough air conditioner to cope.

Our server room is very small how can a I cool the room? One option if you have partition walls in the server room is to fit a portable air conditioner unit to the outside of the room and then duct the cool airflow into the room via a piece of flexible ducting. This would be attached to a wall plate on the wall of the server room, blowing in the cool air.
