Does anybody have any information on what server room temperatures should be kept at?
I need some information to valid my claims that my server room is too hot. Thanks.

Server Room Temperature

by gutridgesj In reply to Server Room Temperature

i keep our server room at 65 deg F. electronics do not like hot temps, say about 75 deg F. Even when the A/C has a prob and it is 70, it seems a little warm.

it also depends on the size of the room too.
if a small room, the temp can be spread out pretty good. in a large room, like we have, sometimes one side of the room is warmer than the other.

i normally put the important servers right over the tiles that have the holes where the air that comes from under the floor is

I keep ours at 69 degrees. My opinion is...betwen 65 and 70 is typical.

Here is a site that offers products to monitor the temp of your server room.

I do not know anything about this company nor endorse the products. I just found it and it might work for you.

I have seen mainframe rooms kept below 65 degrees farenheit. However, mainframes are very large and do not disipate heat as well as smaller server systems. Temperatures of 70 and below are probably okay.

However, do not overlook humidification. Static electricity is more prominent when the humidity is low; I am sure you are aware of what static electricity can do to a server. When you are running air conditioning constantly to maintain a lower temperature, keep in mind that you are removing humidity as well as heat.

If you hire an air conditioning contractor, make sure they have experience in clean rooms and computer rooms. They will know how to integrate humidification with the cooling system. Also be aware that it could be costly.
