Services for Data Centers
HVAC Services for Data Centers in Chicago, IL
Today’s companies are relying on technology more than they ever have, and that often means a room within their facilities dedicated to holding the servers and other technology. Those computers generate a significant amount of heat, and keeping the room at a strict temperature level is vital to protecting the data they contain. Controlling humidity is also critical. In a data center, that need is even greater. If your AC goes down, your data center and server room are at tremendous risk.

Understanding Safe Conditions for Chicago-Area Data Centers
The Guide to Data Center Standards reports the safe temperature and humidity ranges for data centers. Keeping yours within these guidelines is critical to ensuring your data and your equipment stay safe. First Point Mechanical can help you maintain these required ranges:
- Temperatures should stay between 69 and 81 degrees.
- Maximum dew point should not exceed 59 degrees.

In addition to the temperature and humidity standards, data centers must maintain minimum efficiency requirements for the cooling systems based on the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers standards. These standards outline the precision required for humidity and temperature control, as well as air filtration, in computer rooms. It also discusses the need for efficiency in light of the continuous performance required of these systems.
