My mini datacenter currently relies on fully environmental cooling, meaning that the ventilation system operates around the clock without any traditional air conditioning. However, running the heat exchanger all day may not be necessary, particularly during the night or in winter.

The next step involves using a smart device such as a Raspberry Pi, along with sensors, to control the heat exchanger based on the temperature inside the room. This will futher reduce unnecessary electricty cost.
