Conventional wisdom isn’t necessarily true, and this especially applies to power and cooling in the data center. Many popular IT beliefs are in fact myths, and clinging to these notions can impede energy efficiency or cost savings.
Read on to learn about five power-and-cooling fallacies.
Evaporative Cooling Won’t Work in Humid Climates
Relative humidity does affect the efficiency of an evaporative cooler, but a number of manufacturers offer indirect evaporative cooling systems, which can offer substantial cooling benefits at a lower cost than standard air conditioning. The technology uses a heat exchanger combined with evaporative cooling, which means that the interior air isn’t humidified.
