5 Factors in HVAC Design for Data Centers

Data centers typically are high-density enclosed spaces that produce and distribute a significant amount of heat in a small area. This is due to the fact that the power they require to operate is dissipated into the air as heat. This heat needs to be removed or the temperature within the data center will rise, and if the temperature rises enough, the equipment can be seriously impacted. Long-term results end in equipment failure.

Traditional comfort cooling systems often cannot remove enough heat and there is a critical need to house dedicated units with precision cooling capabilities. But not just any cooling system will do the trick. There are many things to consider when designing an HVAC system specifically for a data center that ensures it maintains a regulated temperature, is sustainable, and continues to help the data center perform its functions optimally.
