You can now choose your wine cellar refrigeration system based upon your results. There are mainly 2 types of wine cellar cooling units. The first is the relatively more affordable Self-Contained Cooling System. The self-contained cooling system is a lot like a built-in or through-the-wall air conditioning unit. This system needs to vent to an adjacent climate-controlled room that is usually the same size or larger than your wine room. The WhisperKool XLT Series is one example of a self-contained cooling system.
Building a home wine cellar can create the ideal environment to store your wines. Temperature is always a major consideration in wine storage and the ideal wine storage temperature is between 55ºF and 58ºF (13ºC-15ºC), although any temperature between 40º-65ºF (5º-18ºC) will suffice as long as it doesn't fluctuate too much. Ideally, the humidity should be around 70%. If you can't achieve these temperatures in your passive cellar then you may require a cooling unit.
Wine cellar cooling systems are designed specifically to maintain a constant temperature between 55 to 57 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity levels between 50 to 70 percent. The right humidity levels will keep your corks moist and swollen enough thus ensuring a tighter seal while the right temperature moderates your wine's aging process. Always keep in mind: If humidity is too low, you dry out the corks, thus allowing air to slip into the bottle and if oxidation occurs, the wine will surely be ruined.
Wine connoisseurs would agree that the best wine is the one that has been perfectly preserved through time. Apparently, aside from that standard for having the best wine, experts also believe that the best wine is the one that is stored at its most ideal temperature; thus, an appropriate cooling system is needed for the storage to meet the serving temperature of the wine. To comply with this standard, cellar cooling units are needed by restaurants or by houses with cellars.
