Just having a look at trying to cool down our small server room (read small walk in store cupboard/area) and wondering if there is such a thing as a cheap portable small aircon unit we could plug in there?
Don't forget that you will need to vent it outside. They are a bit noisy as well but they do work.
We did a deal years ago with a company called "Just Coolers" in Bournemouth. I'm not sure if they have just an internal unit available but a google will turn up their site. I think most effective Air-con needs an external unit but if you do find an internal, I imagine it's going to need regular emptying!!
Hope this helps
The unit cools but doesn't have much oompf by way of fans, so the air in the room isn't circulating very well - you might want to get a couple of fans or something installed to help it along.
I don't reckon a cheap portable system is the best answer. A local Air Con installer of good reputation installed a smashing wall mounted Fujitsu Inverter system in our small server room this year and I believe it came to well under £2K. The beauty being it works a treat and will have regular maintenance so it's not going to give me Legionella
I have just had a price for a local company to install an Air Con unit in a server room for me that is quite small. I have used Daykin in the past and they are very very good air con units.
I have not got the exact price yet from the supplier but an estimate from them was around the 2k mark.
Thanks for the replies, forgot about it having to vent outside which is a problem as the room is in the middle of the building and no windows! Anyway removed the window about the door to day to at least let the warm air generated vent. If thats not enough may just purchase a wall fan and point it at the servers to aid air flow and the space above the door will allow for air flow. Now to find a small wall mountable fan
Could you get a bathroom extractor fan and fix it in the gap above the door?
