I hope that everyone had a good winter and is enjoying the spring weather. If you are like me, the pollen is aggravating your allergies. I guess we have to take the bad along with the good!
While pollen doesn’t affect our computers, heat does. Even a brief excursion into the high 90’s can do permanent damage to your computer equipment. With the rise in temperature that accompanies spring and summer, it is important to make sure that your servers and workstations, as well as routers and switches are operating in a cool, well ventilated place. You need to be sure that all of the fans and air vents on your computers are kept clean and free of dust. Blocked air vents can lead to excessive heat buildup and permanent damage to your hardware. It is also advisable to have the internal components of your servers and workstations cleaned on a regular basis. Dust buildup inside of the case can act like a blanket and hold in damaging heat.
If you would like to schedule an appointment to have your computers cleaned, please call our office at 205-980-9903. As always, please feel free to give us a call with any computer questions that you might have. We are here to serve you. Until next month….
