You forgot Rolling Eyes :

How many people work in the office? Minimum, average and peak, please, divided in 1-hour intervals during working hours.

Are pets allowed? I yes how many of them, including breed, approximate weight and whethere they have their hair trimmed or not (if yes at which length in mm).

Windows? Number, size, orientation and specifics of both the glass and the frames used.

Are people allowed to bring to the office their own devices? Do they recharge or use them during working hours?

Are people allowed to carry hot meals in the office? If yes, please detail where they are procured from, exact distance in meters from the restaurant they are bought and how they are transported to the office, and at which time of the day they are prepared and consumed.

Do you have a coffee machine in the office? Please state power consumprtion and minutes per day of use.
Do you have a water cooler in the office? Please state amount of (cool) water drinked.
Are the above devices grouped or separated?

We have some that think this temp is too cold and want it set closer to 70-72 degrees due to personal comfort. My argument is and will remain the computers run more efficiently at the lower temperatures and we have more problems at the higher temperatures. Please share your thoughts and opinions as well as the temperature your labs are kept.


Balls to the computers.....I run more efficiently at lower temperatures Wink

(sadly however people keep messing with the aircon, and the current room temperature is probably about 30c.....and I could only dream of getting the temperature down to 72f!)

Rolling Eyes Jaclaz, Keep it real. If the above wasn't so sad, I might muster a laugh, but I cannot! Rolling Eyes

Go and read the standards and guidance from the various technical bodies.

Well, that was the idea (to get a quick laugh), sorry to have failed at it. Sad

There is a reason a lot of the data centers are in caves.

You do not need the room to be under 70 degrees F. 72+ is fine. The only time I've seen acute issues was when the AC failed after we moved into a new building (at a previous employer) and our data center reached 100+. Some companies keep their data centers at about 80. For an office/lab, whatever temperature is most comfortable for the people working there is fine.

Check out this article regarding temperature ranges:


https://www.datacenterknowledge.com/archives/2008/10/14/google-raise-your-data-center-temperature

From the article:

"The guidance we give to data center operators is to raise the thermostat," said Erik Teetzel, an Energy Program Manager at Google. "Many data centers operate at 70 degrees or below. We'd recommend looking at going to 80 degrees."

How would you attempt to gauge the temperature for these three different computer laboratories?

Which one do you consider uses the best method for creating optimum temperature?
