Due to the mild weather the majority of the year, Greater Phoenix creates the availability for economizer, or “free cooling” strategies, eliminating the need for expensive mechanical refrigeration.
The Benefits of Mild Weather
With cabinet arrangements using enclosed hot aisles, the region’s climate offers:
• Reduced chiller operations up to 40% of the year
• Free air side cooling up to 38% of the year
• Water side free cooling (or no chiller operation) up to 41% of the year
Low Catastrophic Risk
Should a facility operate with direct evaporative cooling strategies, the data center can potentially operate up to 70 percent of the year without the use of chillers.
With low catastrophic risk, Greater Phoenix is an ideal climate for mission critical operations.
