Server Room Cooling
Air cooling is responsible for a very high share of power consumption in your server room, so it’s critical to select the right solution for your environment as it can have a huge impact on improving overall energy efficiency and reducing operational costs.


Server Room Cooling

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

If you are want something super energy-efficient, our CoolVap™ Evaporative Cooling solution – which completely forgoes the need for refrigerant gasses – is proving to be up to 90% more economical than conventional air conditioning systems.

We’ve provided a useful overview of the different air-conditioning methods available to maximise the performance of today’s IT equipment.
