Cooling Servers In Winter Months
December 21st, 2011 By: Kevin Normandeau
Keeping temperature-sensitive IT equipment like servers cool in heated buildings during the winter months has become a challenge. Standard central air conditioners may provide adequate cooling during warm months, but as the building’s HVAC system switches from cooling to heating, equipment can face the risk of overheating, costly damage and system downtime. The traditional solution of precision cooling systems is normally effective, but does suffer from some drawbacks.
This white paper from MovinCool examines the benefits of using ceiling-mount air conditioners to keep server rooms and closets cool inside heated buildings. It discusses the scenarios in which overheating can be missed or ignored, explains the differences between mini-splits and precision cooling systems, and the drawbacks associated with precision units. Next, the functions of a ceiling-mount air conditioning unit and the advantages to utilizing them are explored, as well as what to look for when choosing a self-contained, ceiling-mount air conditioner.
