I'd also recommend positioning the aircon on the opposite side of the room to the servers.
The last thing you want is a leaky aircon dripping onto your expensive kit.
Sounds obvious but in my lastplace of work they did just that, and it did leak a little too!

Our air con unit is too small to cool the server room - it was either £4k for a bigger air con unit or £450 for a partition wall to reduced the space..yep we chose the wall
Good job really, added security to the room and noise from the servers has been reduced.
Whilst we were on the subject of the server room, I had the windows tinted to keep sun out. it was about £400 but the room looks alot better - not a good business case but hey what the heck!
Its now at around 19 - 20 degrees. It reached 17.5 on the weekend sinc records began (Last Monday )
Hope this helps

If you end up with an AC system you'll need a bit of pipework to drain off the condensate from the units. Always fun and games when using portable systems! Often overlooked when scoping out an install.

So true! You also need a drain which actually goes slightly down hill from the units to the outside. Otherwise you get what I had at a school a while ago where the drain pipe leaks and you basically get the condensed sweat of teenagers running down your wall. Lovely :-)
