Our POS software help desk has been receiving calls for help with heat related issues these past few days. While we have many system located in shopping malls, we also have many systems in high street shops and rural / regional locations. Many of these are not air conditioned.

Our advice for ensuring continued computer hardware use through extreme heat situations is:

  1. Maintain good airflow around the main computer box.
  2. Ensure the inside of the computer box is dust free. A can of compressed air can help with this.
  3. Remove papers any anything else from the top of the computer box.

Do these three things and you’ll be in better shape.
