What is the Correct Temperature for a Server Room?

Maintaining the correct temperature is key to keeping your server room running. Our climate control experts answer this frequently asked question.

Server rooms are the heart of a business’s infrastructure, and it’s vital that they are maintained properly so they can run efficiently and safely. A damaged or malfunctioning server can result in the loss of crucial data and have a devastating impact on your business.

To prevent components inside the server from becoming damaged as a result of overheating, it’s important that the ventilation and temperature of the server room are monitored and kept at the correct level at all times.

Maintaining the right temperature

The ideal temperature for servers to run efficiently is between 19°C and 21°C. At 35°C, the servers will begin shutting down. Anything over 40°C would be considered extremely dangerous for the machines.
