A common place for an office fire to begin is in the server room. Over-heating equipment can lead to electrical fires or even cell explosions from backup power supplies. Thus, putting a Chill on your Server Room and monitoring it is very important.
Over heating equipment at the least leads to damaged equipment but can cause a total loss of your server room, office or building. It is very important to keep your server room cool. Most equipment in your server room produces heat. Small server rooms, not chilled properly, will heat up quickly. Backup power supply batteries are usually the culprits for server room fires. The intense heat from the battery cells causes server rooms to heat up quickly. Monitoring your backup power supply equipment should be in a monthly schedule.
The industry recommends an optimal temperature range between 20*C and 21.7*C (68*F and 71*F). Keeping a chill on the server room requires a dedicated thermostat in the server room to ensure correct temperatures. Having a thermostat in another room with a vent in your server room means the temperature is regulated as per the ambient temperature in the room where the thermostat is located. This setup doesn’t monitor the temperature in the server room.
