Server Room Air Conditioning

Server room cooling, humidity, and temperature control solutions throughout the UK – provided by Newsome.

In today’s digital age, businesses rely heavily on computer servers to store and process critical data. These servers generate a substantial amount of heat, which, if not properly controlled, can lead to severe consequences such as equipment failure, data loss, and system downtime. That’s where server room air conditioning solutions from Newsome come into play – an essential component in maintaining the optimal operating conditions necessary for the efficient and reliable functioning of servers.

As one of the UK’s leading providers of air conditioning equipment, humidity control products and support services, Newsome can deliver the latest server room air conditioning and humidity control solutions on a permanent, temporary, or emergency hire basis to provide the right level of cooling or dehumidification you need, when you need it, for as long as you need it.

Servers are designed to operate within specific temperature ranges, typically between 18 to 27 degrees Celsius. Any deviations from these optimal temperature levels can have detrimental effects on server performance and longevity. High temperatures can lead to overheating, accelerated hardware degradation, and even sudden system shutdowns, jeopardising the continuity of critical business operations. On the other hand, excessively low temperatures can cause condensation, leading to corrosion and moisture damage.

Maintaining proper humidity levels is equally vital for server room environments. Excessive humidity can cause condensation on sensitive components, leading to short circuits and irreparable damage to equipment. Conversely, extremely low humidity levels can result in electrostatic discharge (ESD) and static electricity build-up, which can harm servers and other electronic devices.

At Newsome, we provide a range of bespoke air conditioning and moisture control solutions that will optimise the performance of your server room, help reduce its running costs, and maximise the reliability of the servers housed within the data centre.

There are several types of server room cooling solutions available, including:

Air conditioning: Air conditioning is the most common method of cooling server rooms. It involves using air conditioning units to cool the air in the room and maintain a constant temperature.

Liquid cooling: Liquid cooling involves the use of water or other cooling liquids to remove heat from IT equipment. It is more efficient than air conditioning and can be used in high-density server environments.

Evaporative cooling: Evaporative cooling is a process that uses water to cool the air. It is an energy-efficient cooling solution that can be used in dry climates.

Free cooling: Free cooling involves using outdoor air to cool the data centre. It is an energy-efficient cooling solution that can be used in cooler climates.

Heat pumps: Heat pumps can be used to transfer heat from the server room to the outside air. They are an energy-efficient cooling solution that can be used in colder climates.

Each of these air conditioning, cooling and humidity control solutions has its advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of the solution depends on several factors, such as the size of the server room, the climate in which it is located, and the IT equipment being used. Talk to us and we can help establish the best solution for your server room and the issues you are facing.

With the help of Newsome, using air conditioners and dehumidifiers to accurately manage the temperature and humidity within a server room offers many benefits.

Proper temperature and humidity control ensure that servers and other critical IT equipment operate within their recommended environmental ranges. Excessive heat and moisture can lead to hardware failures, reduced performance, and shortened lifespan. By utilising the latest air conditioning equipment and commercial dehumidifiers to maintain optimal conditions, the reliability and longevity of the equipment can be significantly improved.

Heat is a major cause of server downtime, but commercial air conditioners can efficiently remove this. When temperatures rise beyond acceptable levels, servers can overheat, resulting in system crashes and shutdowns. By implementing effective air conditioning management, you can minimise the risk of downtime and ensure the uninterrupted operation of critical systems and services.

Maintaining the right temperature and humidity levels in your server room allows for the efficient use of cooling systems. By optimising cooling mechanisms, such as air conditioning and ventilation, energy consumption can be reduced, leading to cost savings and a more environmentally friendly operation.

Excessive heat can negatively impact server performance, leading to slower processing speeds and increased latency. By controlling the temperature and humidity, you can create an environment that promotes optimal performance, enabling servers to function at their peak capacity.

High humidity levels increase the risk of condensation and moisture build-up, which can damage servers and storage devices, potentially leading to data loss. By controlling the humidity with dehumidifiers integrated into your server room, you minimise the chances of data corruption and ensure the integrity and availability of critical information.

Effective temperature management can help mitigate the risk of fire in server rooms. High temperatures can cause electrical components to overheat and become fire hazards. By maintaining appropriate temperatures, you reduce the likelihood of equipment malfunction and fire incidents.

Excessive heat and humidity can accelerate the ageing process of server equipment. By keeping the environment within recommended ranges, you can extend the lifespan of servers, switches, routers, and other hardware components. This, in turn, reduces the frequency of equipment replacement and associated costs.
