Outside Air Economizers in Data Centers in Warm Climates
Designers have long assumed that data center projects should not use outside air economizers (a.k.a. airside economizers) in warm climates. The reasons are usually obvious — when it’s 90°F or higher outdoors for much of the year, there couldn’t possibly be any benefit in bringing in that warm outside air. However, when specifically considering data center applications, there are several reasons why this logic is faulty.
The updated “Thermal Envelope” has allowed for many more hours of economizer use, and there is promise in the not too distant future that that envelope will be expanded even more. Only a complete Total Cost of Ownership analysis can determine whether there is enough availability of free cooling to justify the extra cost of the economizer.
