To Replace or Not to Replace?

by Jodi Holland on 1/7/19 10:49 AM

Another year has come and gone. For some of you, this means your data center cooling equipment is another year older, and it may not be running as efficiently as you'd like.

So, the question becomes, to replace or not to replace? If you choose to replace the old equipment with the latest and greatest Vertiv has to offer, a whole lot of comfort and reliability will come with your purchase. If you’re on a much tighter budget, however, retrofitting your current equipment could be a viable option that will help you save energy today, while allowing it to last a few more years before you have to take the big leap to buy all new equipment. While possible equipment upgrades that can be considered include Liebert® iCOM™ and Liebert® EC fans, one equipment replacement might be a Liebert® DSE™.

 

Retrofit-Payback-Scenario-2

Before you make up your mind though, it’s best to consider your different options and how they would effect your annual energy costs in the coming years. Would you be saving big with one option over the other? And, if so, how long will it take for these energy savings to cover the cost of the project? For a breakdown of these possible costs (and more) take a look at two options that Vertiv presents in a retrofit payback scenario.
