Default Save Money, Increase server room temperature

I read an article stating that if we increase the server room base temperature to about 80 degrees, we can save a lot on annual energy costs. Microsoft tried this by increasing their server room temperature 4-5 degrees. I don't know if this is actually a good thing to do. I believe that this could prove risky and if the room is safe and secure at 80 why did we initially have lower temperatures. What are your comments on this?
