    My school has no proper ventilation or air conditioning.

    Today it was quite a pleasant temperature.

    @alonebfg: If the room has no ventilation it is against health and safety law to work in there. There is also a fire risk. By law this must be actioned immediately!

    Set the thermal cut outs on your servers to 32 degrees too for 'safety' and see how quickly something is done about it!

    I must admit we got air con last year, it is alot better, the room is now the hottest in the winter but the coolest in the summer.

    Still haven't sorted out the server noises ...now that is a health and safety problem!!

    Re: Just in case we don't survive ...

    We got a Massive air con system last year..and I mean massive, its about 6 foot long and attached to the wall near the ceiling. Turn it on full and it gets positively ICY in here.

    This will be the first summer that we have had it, I just know that every member of staff will be finding reasons to loiter in our office during the summer to make use of it

    Re: Just in case we don't survive ...

    The thing is, the overall temperature during summer is increasing gradually. Will it be long before A/C is needed throughout schools to manage with this heat?

    My office is a lovely 19 degrees although that may be in part to the office being next to the server room and just an arch way between the two with the server room chilled to 16 degrees!! Also on the other end of the office opens into our latest ict suite that is chilled to 22 degrees at all times!

    Re: Just in case we don't survive ...

    'Living in a box, I'm living in a cardboard box'... Ah the 80's!! 8) Perhaps I am showing my age here.

    We live in a IT suite store room, no windows or ventillation. Our server room has aricon that is connected to a toilet soil pipe and if that backs up we end up with a flood in the server room and at the mo' the servers are sat under it. Mmm not the best idea, this summer a big more will be needed.

    Re: Just in case we don't survive ...

    We've got 2 big AC units in the server room
    Originally had one but it wasnt enough
    We also have it in one computer suite

    I hate working in an AC'd room though and I'd be annoyed if we got it for our office or anywhere there isnt a lot of computers because its a waste of money and energy

    Do a lot of you not have seperate server rooms? Notice a lot of people saying they have their racks in their office? That would drive me insane
