Why get server air conditioning?

Our four favourite reasons

Upgrade

Your networks efficiency

Servers need proper ventilation and cooling to operate at peak performance. Small fans are not a feasible long term solution, get air con as smart as your servers.

Fire On Black Background

Fires

Can be avoided

Having server room air conditioning stops your servers from overheating and setting on fire, causing huge damage, which can happen in rare circumstances.

Don't

Get caught red handed

There are currently no enforceable laws for server room ventilation, but if there are issues, you are fully responsible for any physical or digital damage caused.

Life With Server Room Air Con

Lungs for your businesses brain

Create

Data centres, whether it’s a few servers or an entire warehouse, need climate control.

By installing server room air conditioning, you avoid the hardware overheating, which can lead to catastrophic failures, irreparable damage to data, lost profits and in some cases, bankruptcy.

Imagine you wake up and check your phone, you see a notification from your air con app. The alert says that some of your server stacks were operating at maximum capacity, causing a dangerous rise in temperatures. Luckily, we installed a system that maintains the ideal temperature automatically, so the alert is coupled with a notification saying the temperature was successfully maintained throughout the night. The disaster was avoided, while you slept comfortably.

Choosing your air con units

The vast number of server room air conditioning systems to choose from makes it difficult to pick one. Here’s what to look out for:

Cooling

All air conditioning units can cool your space, but some will do so more efficiently than others.

Ventilation

Again all air con systems can ventilate your space, but some are better suited to certain room layouts.

Heating

Most air conditioning units can heat your space. If you want this feature, make sure your unit is capable.

Features

Some units come with special features and additional functions, such as near silent operation.

Design

The shape, colour and material of the unit can be integrated with your server rooms unique design.

Space

Room size needs matching to power output. Units are mostly wall-mounted, some are on the ceiling or floor.

The vents can be very small and embedded in the ceiling, so are the best choice if you do not want a visible unit. Eazyzone is the most cost-effective way to get air conditioning for the whole data centre.

The Condenser Unit

The outdoor counterpart to your stylish interior device works with your evaporators to keep each room at the ideal temperature. The large fans in these machines quietly ventilate excess heat and cold from the intricate system of liquid and gas filled coils within, maximising efficiency. The power capability, features and more need to be matched with your interior units, so most customers leave selecting the condenser up to our qualified engineers. 

Our experts select a condenser unit suiting your server room air conditioning needs, so you get to pick how many units you want and where plus the style. You can find out more about different condenser units by using the button below or contact us today and our experts will do the hard work for you.

The condenser unit

Your condenser unit is the vital connection to the outside world, it takes air in and purifies it before moving the air indoors to cool or heat your data centre. It simultaneously extracts the old air and breathes it back outside safely.

Server air con running cost

Compared to a standard boiler

On all standard models of commercial air conditioning, the energy efficiency ratio is 1:5, meaning you gain 400% extra energy for every kilowatt you put in.

On a conventional boiler the energy efficiency ratio is 1:0.93, meaning you lose 7% energy for every kilowatt you put in.

7% may not sound like a lot, but if you like to have your heating on during the colder months, it adds up to a lot. In 24 hours your boiler produces around 175 kW (kilowatts) of energy but uses 190 kW to create that heat, meaning you’re paying for an extra 15 kW of wasted energy every day.

The average cost of 1 kilowatt hour in the UK is 16p, so a boiler wastes £3.84 per day compared to air conditioning your server room.

So see how much you could save, and what you could get with that money, by installing server room air conditioning:

Server Room Air Conditioning FAQ

Because each data centre is different, so is the price. Contact us for a free quote to find out how much air conditioning your servers could cost.

The best temperature for servers is usually between 20 and 24 degrees. Higher or lower than that can create issues with overheating and underheating that harm performance. Over 30 degrees is regarded as dangerous and consistently remaining above this temperature can cause a meltdown or a fire.
