Cooling Requirements Being Maintained by Natural Outside Air

ParaFX.com is pleased to announce that after implementing a custom HVAC system, as part of our efficiency improvements, the cooling requirements are being maintained by 100% seasonal cool air from outside.

As previously announced, in conjunction with HVAC specialists, ParaFX.com has installed a custom HVAC system in our independently owned datacentre.  This system allows us to utilize the cooler air from outside to cool our datacentre and all production and development equipment.

Of course, this system applies air filtering and precise control over temperature and humidity.  This system is presently acting as the primary HVAC system, allowing our 6 other air conditioner and cooling equipment to be on standby.

The result of this is an estimated reduction of approximately 40% of our electrical consumption during the late fall and winter months.  Our custom HVAC system has been operating since November 03, 2011 and has proved to work well. 

It is our constant goal to implement more and more practical efficiencies that are environmentally responsible.  Over the past two years, ParaFX.com has been conducting various renovations to our datacentre facility in order to implement many improvements.

Because our facility (unlike other datacentres and hosting providers), is wholly owned by ParaFX.com and is build to only host our companies equipment and services, we are able to implement solutions that are not feasible to large scale multi-host datacentres.

Most often, hosting companies co-locate their equipment in private datacentres with other companies.  Because of that, they do not have physical control over facilities, and the scale of these facilities does not allow for simple and custom implements such as this.

We hope to continue to address further improvements that can be made and implement them in the near future.  ParaFX.com is committing to invest in such improvements to not only increase our cost efficiency but also to implement solutions to lessen our environmental impact.

It is important to note that all efforts implemented are done so as to not to sacrifice the level of service we offer to our customers.  We strive to constantly improve our operations to benefit the environment, our customers and the sustainability of our business.   We will continue to review our operations in all aspects to seek further improvements and will implement them as much as possible.

 

Conservation with HVAC Requirements - 2010 / 2011

ParaFX.com operates our own datacentre.  We do not co-locate our systems in other datacentres.  The main reason for this is to provide us an environment where we can control resources and implementations.

Because of this we are also able to engineer our own operations in such a way so as to cater to our customers needs and also to implement unique efforts for a greener operation.

As you know, operating a room of equipment requires temperature control.  Many datacentres employ air conditioning, or chilling units to maintain operation temperatures.  This HVAC equipment runs winter and summer, consuming utilities such as water, gas and electricity.

In our efforts for a more environmentally conscious operation, we have developed in house our own HVAC / ventilation system that allows us to take advantage of the cold winter months to cool our systems rooms.   We employ a custom built series of ventilation systems that, in a precision controlled method, bring in outside cool air during the cooler months to control the temperature of the datacentre facility.  This allows us to reduce our electrical consumption significantly while still maintaining a high level of quality of service.

As such a system doesn't exist and isn't practical for the major datacentres, this series of HVAC systems were developed and constructed in house with some injection by specialists.  This HVAC system has been tested and will be implemented live in 2011 as part of the operation.

Increasing Facility Efficiency - 2011

There has been a mass campaign for homeowners to increase the efficiency of their home by increasing insulation, upgrading windows etc.  Most businesses do not take the initiative to do this as well, and as such most businesses are the biggest wasters of utilities.

Our operation has spent the past 2 years taking extreme initiatives much like many home owners have.  We have constructed our datacentre and implemented significant insulation, window upgrades, ventilation upgrades etc to increase the efficiency.  Our periodic tests from this has resulted in an approximate 43% decrease in consumption of utilities.  This required a significant investment for implementation, however this will not only allow us to operate with lower costs going forward, but most importantly - it allows us to decrease our environmental impact.

Conclusion

It is important to note that all efforts implemented are done so as to not to sacrifice the level of service we offer to our customers.  We strive to constantly improve our operations to benefit the environment, our customers and the sustainability of our business.   We will continue to review our operations in all aspects to seek further improvements and will implement them as much as possible.

Please feel free to visit our Go Green page to see our other initiatives that are already in place.  This page is devoted to new news of our ongoing efforts to be as environmentally conscious a business as possible.
