Keep Your Devices Cool

by Bonnye Sensenig

Poor Ventilation can bake your hardware components, shortening the life of your devices.

Help your electronics survive the summer by avoiding these heat traps:

Hot cars

When traveling, remember to keep your machine with you or in a secure, ventilated space.

Non-climate controlled buildings

If your servers are running 24/7, so should the AC. Server rooms should never exceed 77°F.

Enclosed cabinet spaces

Cramped shelving or tight cabinets trap heat and dust, which can clog fans. Be sure to give your machines some breathing room.

Consider the conditions of your environment - from workspace and workload to regional climate - to determine which machine and configuration is right for the job.
