Server Room Cooling

Keep your servers cool and running efficiently with server room cooling designed and installed by HFK Cooling.

Computer server rooms have become very important for most organisations. It’s necessary to keep all computer hardware cool and running at an optimal temperature. Over heating will cause the hardware to slow down, over work and in severe cases, crash the servers or they automatically shut down when it gets too hot.

Whether you are cooling a single server or an entire server room, we can assist with free onsite surveys. Request a call today or for immediate assistance give us a call on 0800 4880 380.

Ideal AC systems for server rooms

Server room air conditioning systems vary from wall mounted or ceiling suspended air conditioners, to water chilled complete datacentre facilities.

  • Wall mounted air conditioners are the most frequently used in server rooms. Perfect for the smaller server rooms.
  • Under ceiling air conditioners are recommended for larger server room space and/or more hardware.

Both types of AC units should be placed away from all electronic equipment. And they should be regularly maintained to avoid the risk of water leaks.

Frequently asked questions

Here are some of the common questions we get asked about server room cooling.

Why should server rooms be cold?2022-12-21T15:09:45+00:00

Too much heat in a room can cause the hardware to malfunction. The servers will work harder to try and keep cool, this will slow down the server.

All hardware emits warm air from the internal fans blowing out the heat generated. If you have many servers in one room, the temperature can rise significantly. This might be OK during cooler months, but in the height of summer, the hardware can over heat and servers could crash or automatically shut down.

What is the best way to cool a server room?2022-12-21T15:03:22+00:00

Make sure their is enough air flow in and out of the server room. Depending on the size of the space to be cooled, the correct AC system needs to be installed. An air conditioning unit that’s too small for the size of a room will be over worked and not be effective in keeping the temperature cool. This can cause the server hardware to overheat, under perform and it could result in the servers automatically shutting down or crashing.

What happens if the air conditioners are not serviced regularly?2022-12-23T14:49:22+00:00

Over time, an air conditioning unit that hasn’t been serviced for a while will produce lower quality air as dirt in the air filters will build up. This usually results in the unit having to work harder therefore costing more in utility bills.

Is it a legal requirement to service air conditioning?2022-12-23T14:49:27+00:00

It is not a legal requirement to service your air conditioning unit. Although all manufacturers recommend regular servicing and some even say that your warranty will be void if you don’t service your unit within the warranty guidelines. You should check your warranty and see what it says.
