Computer systems are critically sensitive to extreme variations in temperature and humidity. High heat or humidity can cause failure, degrade performance and shorten equipment life. Important differences exist between precision cooling, designed for computers, and building air conditioning (comfort cooling) systems, designed for people, in controlling these environmental conditions. These differences dramatically impact the cost effectiveness of these systems. In this paper, we compare both cooling systems’ ability to maintain favorable environmental conditions, and their energy efficiency and annual operating costs.
