Wine Cellar Cooling Units: Cellar cooling units can be set at any temperature within the optimum range for successfully aging wines and they cool the air slowly and gently. They are designed to maintain humidity rather than dehydrating the cellar although sometimes additional humidification may be required in extremely dry climates. This type of cooling unit is usually installed approximately 18 inches from the top of the room in order to achieve maximum cooling. The unit will also require an unobstructed airflow and adequate ventilation to dissipate the heat generated by the unit.
Split wine cellar cooling systems are more durable, however, and lasts at least a decade longer than self-contained systems. Both types of climate control systems are popular and selecting one over the other depends on your wine room's current condition and, of course, your personal preferences. Just make sure you get everything right and your valued wine collection will turn out right as well.
This compact design makes for a quick and easy installation process, one in which you can likely forgo the aid of a refrigeration technician. This will cut down on your overall installation costs. In addition, the self-contained cooling option doesn’t involve ductwork or refrigeration lines because it’s essentially just one, self-contained cooling unit. This type of cooling unit is also called "through the wall" because it’s often mounted and vented through the wall itself. Due to the ease of installation and general upkeep, this is often the most popular and cost-effective type of wine cellar cooling.
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.
