San Diego summers seem to be getting hotter each year. Unbalanced temperatures can cause illness, and keeping your body temperature consistent, helps prevent sickness. The same concept applies to all your technology equipment. Keep IT cool in order to prolong your investment.
High temperatures can affect your personal computer, tablets, workstations, laptops, servers and practically all your technological investment. Your equipment can begin to malfunction and its lifespan can decrease.
Keep ample air circulated around the areas where your technology equipment is located; such as servers and switches. Using a fan or AC is crucial for your equipment to circulate heat away from it.
If you have your own server room, make sure the AC unit is routinely checked and maintained to keep the units running strong at a constant temperature. Airflow is adequate, ceiling tiles are closed, and keep it clean; clutter free.
Rolling blackouts may come with the heat. Protect your critical units by having backup batteries using the advancement in UPS technology like the NXRT-1500. Keep your systems running when the power is out or give yourself enough time time to gracefully shutdown the system to prevent data corruption.
Turn off your computer and monitor at the end of your work day and on the weekends when they’re not in use. In doing so, you will reduce the heat where your computers are located and save some electricity.
Take the necessary steps to prevent any technological issues that may arise from the summer’s heat. You will have better peace of mind to know that your investment in IT is not wasted.
