If you have recently installed a new cool room in your business premises, you may be wondering how you can keep the servers cool. The electricity which travels through the refrigeration units in your cool room can generate a lot of heat. If this heat is not removed, it can result in serious problems such as equipment failure and rotten food. However, there are some steps you can take which will improve the performance of the HVAC system and help to reduce the cost of keeping your cool room at the correct temperature. Read on to find out everything you need to know.
Ensure your HVAC system is properly maintained
If the HVAC system in your cool room isn't properly maintained, the atmosphere within the cool room will begin to overheat. With use, the filters inside an HVAC system will become clogged with dust and dirt. If this debris or grime is not removed, it can seriously impede the flow of air through the HVAC system. Failure of the compressor can also place an excessive load on the HVAC system, which can result in suboptimal performance. To avoid these problems, you should ensure that your HVAC system is properly maintained and regularly serviced by a qualified HVAC contractor.
Ensure there is an adequate airflow into and out of the cool room
One of the primary reasons why cool rooms overheat is because of poor airflow. Air which flows into your cool room should be chilled. As it passes through the cool room, this chilled air draws heat from the atmosphere. The warmed air should then flow out of the cool room via vents in the ceiling or wall. This movement of air removes heat and transports it away from the refrigeration units. However, when the airflow is poor, an inadequate amount of chilled air enters the cool room, and the chilled air which does enter is not removed from the environment, so it just holds the heat in place. Installing additional fans and vents in the walls of your cool room can help to improve the quality of the airflow.
