Air-Conditioning Is Your Server Room’s Greatest Running Cost
Typically, only 40% of the electricity consumed by your server room is actually used by your IT equipment. A staggering 60% is consumed by the server room cooling infrastructure (air-conditioning, lighting and UPS systems). But whatever the type or size of your server room, it needs cooling infrastructure.
At Comms Room Services, we can help you choose the most efficient air-conditioning for your server room’s cooling requirements.
- Reduce electricity costs – using methods such as our CoolVap™ Evaporative Cooling can reduce running costs by up to 85% over time
- Reduce carbon footprint – modern, more energy-efficient cooling systems assist with lowering energy consumption and improve performance and longevity of IT equipment
- Enhanced Capital Allowance scheme – within the UK, many energy-efficient products are registered under the Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme which means that 100% of the costs can be claimed against taxable profits
