Server closet cooling
« on: July 27, 2007, 04:17:26 AM »

I have a room about 10 feet by 40 feet full of shelves with servers. As you can imagine the heat in here is pretty intense, and I find that the central AC that comes in through the ceiling is probably not nearly effective enough. I have a bunch of fans going for circulation, but the tempurature is probably reaching 80 degrees easily.

I'v been looking into portable AC units (no windows in this room, and only one door which has to remain locked). I was hoping for some sort of exuast/drain system that could go out through a hose into the ceiling.

Anyone have good AC units and/or places to buy, or what types of things to look for? Any advice would be much appreciated.

Here are several sources of info.

You will need at least... Electrical to the inside and outside portions, tubing between them and a drain from the indoor unit.

You might also want to look at free-standing room air conditioners.  With those though, you have to run ducting to get the hot air out.

Keep us up to date.  This WILL be a project, but well worth it.

and only one door which has to remain locked

I assume this is a vented door, with holes in it to let the air circulate / let the heat out?

Some people say bump.  Some people answer questions asked of them.  What's your deal?
