VII  Environmental Considerations

The following is a list of what to look for, in maintaining a proper environment for your network equipment.

Temperature

Too hot or too cold brings Bad news. Too hot causes flaky operational status, and shortens component life. Too cold causes the drives to hang, and fans to fail.

Humidity

Too little, and you have the groundwork in place for major static electricity. Static is one of the three demons that can cause permanent damage. Too much humidity swells paper, causing paper jams in printers, even floppy media can begin to get intermittent. The ideal range is between 50 & 60% humidity.

Air Quality

Dust is a fact of life. Not removing it from computers creates an insulating blanket that prevents component cooling. This leads to too high a temperature for components and the resulting issues. Fans must be cleaned as well.
