I'm the "junior IT guy" at a small college with about 100 staff, 600 students.

We're in the basement of a building, with no easy way to run ductings/vents to the outside.

We've recently hired an Actual HVAC guy --- but his experience is all large buildings/residential, not data centers. He's well aware of the 24x7 requirements, and has even asked that his email be added to the notification alias for temp warnings.

comment How do you compute the AC capacity needed for a server room?
Our problem right now seems to be that the physical facilities staff is more familiar with carpentry/AC wiring that goes on in a dorm,rather than actual HVAC work. The two different outside contractors that have been called in have both stated that our unit is "probably undersized for load". My concern is that I'd like to be able to figure out the load myself, so that if the powers-that-be actually authorize a new system, we won't be buying underrated equipment.
