This is the reason why you just can't place them in your usual refrigerator, for a regular fridge would be at around 2 degrees Celsius while your freezer would give out 0 degrees Celsius in temperature to freeze your waters to form ice cubes. If you are very much particular in serving your wine in its best shape, then you should be able to install wine cellar cooling units in your cellar. You will definitely be convinced that the best wine that you have there is really the best when served at the right temperature.
It is also possible to install a split air system into a wine cellar although these units can be very expensive with prices running into many thousands of dollars. A split air system is installed outside the cellar and the supply and return air is ducted to and from the wine cellar. This cellar refrigeration system works like a central air-conditioning system and is similarly quiet. This system would usually include electronic controls and a digital display. There are many options available with split system cooling including humidifiers, dehumidifiers and alarm units. With the addition of the options, a split air system will provide you with total control of your wine cellar refrigeration, albeit at a large cost. If you find that your wine cellar requires a cooling unit it is worthwhile shopping around and comparing brands. There are few bargains, however, you should be able to save money with a little research.
The Wine Room: Before installing a wine refrigeration system, make sure the room is vapor sealed and properly insulated. Every wall and ceiling should be scaled with a vapor barrier on the "warm side" of the walls. 6 or 8 mil plastic sheeting is highly recommended. Interior walls should be insulated to a minimum of R-19. We recommend using rigid foam board. Additionally, all cracks should be filled with expanding spray foam. All walls are finished with moisture resistant green board.
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.
