How can we reduce data center energy costs?

With data centers being the largest and fastest growing consumers of electricity in the USA, even the World, we need to employ effective methods to reduce energy usage. Intelligent HVAC equipment can be a fundamental component in contributing to these vitally needed energy savings.

Data centers can be setup to take advantage of ‘free’ cooling by using a combination of intake/exhaust dampers in combination with airside economizers, their purpose to shut down compressors and bring in cool outside air where it is required. This ultimately results in substantial facility energy savings!
