Completion of server room air conditioning project for Ace Fire And Security Bedford (13/08/13)

 How to use server room air conditioning,  The best way to use server room air conditioning


Orion air conditioning has completed the installation of a replacement server room air conditioning unit for Ace Fire And Security in their head office in Bedford, Bedfordshire. The existing wall mounted air conditioning unit had failed due to old age, it was installed in 2003 and had worked continuously without any major issues since installation. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries air Conditioning is known for long reliable life and are ideal for server rooms and COM's rooms were a failure can mean the complete shut down of an entire business. The old air conditioning unit was on fixed speed system which switches on and off according to the thermostat. The new unit is a energy efficient inverter system which has a high COP and modulated inverter compressor which can save up to 40% on server room air conditioning that will run 24 hours / 7 days a week.

What server room air conditioning system was installed in Ace Fire And Security Bedford:

1 x  Mitsubishi Heavy Industrial - SRK25ZJ-S1 Wall Mounted (2.5kW 12000 Btu) INVERTER Air Conditioning unit which provided enough cooling for the 4 meter square area in the server room. These units have a improved COP for a standard inverter (3.66 initial input) which means that every 1000w of electrical energy going in produces 3660 watts of cooling.

Server room air conditioning efficiency and CO2 emissions:

This server room air conditioning system took around 5 minutes to cool fully but once cool the outdoor inverter units slowed down because the temperature  had been reached therefore just pumping small amounts of cooling in to maintain the server room. 




Server room efficiency: 85%

Total power of servers: 1200 Watts

Total heat loss: 180 Watts @85% efficiency

Room in Square Meters: 1800 Watts

Total Heat Load: 400 Watts

Key points to think about when getting air conditioning for server rooms

Use inverter air conditioning as it will save energy in the long run.

Cheap air conditioning units do not work in cold weather because they do not have a outside fan speed controller (low ambient kit)

Use a established brand so if a part fails on you Server room air conditioning you are not waiting 8 weeks for a part.

Sometimes it is worth having two server room air conditioning units because if one fails you still have some cooling.

To establish the heat load of you servers add up all the power supplies of your servers rack and assume a 40% loss to heat. i.e- If you have 10 servers with 400watt power supply the total watts will be 4000 watts. assuming a 40% loss the heat load will be 1600 watts.

Work on a average watts per/Msq of 125watts, so if you server room is 5 x 5 meters you will require a base of 3.5kw/12000btu + the heat load.

Advised manufactures for server room air conditioning Mitsubishi, Daikin, Fujitsu, Sanyo.

Always use auto-restart units for server room air conditioning units as power failures can shut budget air conditioning down.

If your server room is temporary (ie short term lease on building) or has building restrictions then portable air conditioning maybe your only option.

If using portable air conditioning for your server room then make sure it recycles the water for better cooling performance of that it has a integral condensate pump.

Use a established business who will not be going out of business for your server room air conditioning installation as the warranty of the air conditioning is with the supplier not the manufacturer.
