Wiring closets
What is the recommended temperature for wiring closets? We have 10-12 edge switches in our wiring closets that run anywhere from 78-80.2f. Currently there is no cooling in the closet. What are your thoughts re those temperatures? Do you think we need addtional cooling?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The recommended server closet temperature is 20-21°C (68-71°F) for optimal performance. you start getting above 80 F and its too hot in there. I would suggest some more cooling in there or at-least installing a ventilation system to vent that hot air out and cycle in cooler air.
