Best AC option for Small Business Server Rooms

August 27, 2014 | Blog

Small business server rooms still need the same kind of temperature-controlled environment that big-time data rooms need. The problem is that most small businesses have their servers located in a closet or small room whose temperature-controlled environment is operating on the same HVAC system that the rest of the office or building operates on. This, more often than not, creates a server room that is way too hot.

So what do you do? How do you tone down the temperature in that small space without overspending on zoning or utilities? The best thing for your server room is a ductless mini-split system.

Choosing Ductless for a Small Business Server Room

Ductless is the best solution to this problem for a variety of reasons. Mini-splits can be installed at a relatively low expense and are way more efficient than most central air systems. The size of most small business server rooms would not even warrant central air, and most cheap rolling units or window units do not provide enough performance and efficiency for the room. Ductless air conditioners are the best of both worlds.

What About the Cost?

While ductless systems are generally much cheaper than central systems in regards to both installation and unit price, total pricing will depend on the following variables:

  • Brand (some brands, like Mitsubishi, tend to be a little more expensive)
  • Size (of space and therefore unit capacity)
  • Efficiency (13-28 SEER)
  • Application (length of copper to the outdoor unit, necessary codes, electrical, etc.)

Generally speaking, the cost of installing the most basic mini-split system by a licensed contractor will be from $3,000 – $4,000. This is much more affordable than the alternative.
