Server Room Air Conditioner Replacement?
Posted on 2010-11-10
Looking to find out what size AC replacement we should puchase.
Server room is 6' x 8' with a 10' ceiling.
2 racks with the following equipment:
13 servers, 2 switches, 2 RM UPS's, firewall, SSL appliance, tape backup
Currently we have a 24,000 BTU AC unit. I usually keep the room at about 68 degrees, give or take a few...
We received 2 bids, one company stated we should go down to a 18,000 BTU and the other company wants us to go up a 30,000 BTU unit.
So my question is, which unit would be best for us, considering our situation. I just don't want to have this unit pump out too much humidity and kill the servers slowly.
Thanks in advance...
