Unfortunately, facilities often make mistakes when trying to set up cooling for a server or computer room. The biggest mistake is thinking server rooms don’t need special cooling at all, just a fan in the space. That’s an extreme case. Below are some less extreme mistakes with server room cooling that you’ll want to avoid in your facility:

Why Server Room Cooling Is Different Than Other Commercial Cooling

Monday, July 20th, 2020

thermometer-going-redThe job of a commercial air conditioning contractor in Toronto, ON covers many different tasks. A contractor who handles residential air conditioning has a single, straightforward job: provide cooling for a house that keeps its residents comfortable.

Most businesses have a server room or computer room of some type; even small offices need to have a server room to store vital computer and telephone equipment. What is the best way to cool down these rooms? It’s not as basic as having a standard air conditioning system blow cooled air into the server room.
