As we all know very well, computers generate a lot of heat, in fact about 250 watts an hour! When you add to that a monitor, that figure can increase to more than 350 or even 400 watts.
Adequate server room air conditioning for efficient cooling therefore is a must and, as we all know, the growing number of internet users, combined with the ever increasing demand on computer business systems, means that server rooms are becoming hotter and hotter places.
CPU core temperature start to rise and the servers start to operate impaired leading to malfunction or even failure.
This large Daikin air conditioning unit illustrated to the left, can produce up to 135.0 kw of cooling per hour.
The primary purpose therefore of server room air conditioning is to remove the several thousands of watts of generated heat, to the outside of the building to reduce such risks.
Another effect of excessive heat build-up is an increased threat of fire, which as we know is probably a computer server room manager's greatest fear. Most larger institutions have good systems in place to limit and prevent overheating by having already installed adequate air conditioning and C02 pumps. South Coast Environmental Services offer complete computer server room air conditioning solution packages, ranging from custom installations, to the hire of temporary portable units. We offer complimentary surveys for any situation, from the smallest computer server room, to the largest corporate computer server centres.
Our systems can be a simple wall or ceiling mounted air conditioning unit, to cool a small space, or they can be fully fitted under floor systems for larger server spaces. Whatever your needs, our computer server room air conditioning solutions can be wired into your fire alarm system, so that in the event of a fire, the server air conditioning area will be shut off and isolated, thus reducing air movement, and thus further reducing the risk of fire spread.
