Split System; Ductless split systems, which keep the condensing unit and fan coils separate, were made for cellars where proper ventilation is not directly available. The evaporator coil part of the unit will still be located inside the cellar with your wine. However, the compressor, fan, and coil of the cooling unit will be located outside, or perhaps in an adjoining room to your wine cellar. This is to help provide the cooling unit with a proper amount of ventilation. A kind of flexible hose or refrigeration line will connect the exterior unit to the interior one.
A wall-mounted thermostat with a range of + or - 1 degree F is ideal. Cellars subject to ambient temperatures below 55 degrees F should be protected by a heating coil. Without the ability to heat, a cooling unit can do nothing if the temperature in the cellar falls below the control set-point. The best system is one where the heating is integrated into the cooling unit and works on the same thermostat. How to Resolve the Temperature Problem:
This is actually more needed by restaurants who value the importance of wine when serving the food that they offer. It is not enough for restaurants to have refrigerators or freezers to store their wines, for it will not render the best serving temperature for wines. It just so happen that refrigerators have inconsistent temperature that is not even specific which is not good enough for a wine, unless you just want your wine to be cold. However for wines, being cold is not enough especially for other types of wine.
Most people don’t realize how often the temperature and humidity changes in a room from day to day and how difficult it can be to keep your wines in an optimal environment. For wine, the ideal humidity ranges from 50% to 70%. It’s especially important to keep your wine within this range mostly for the health of the cork. If your storage cellar is too dry, the cork can also become dry. A crumbly or shrunken cork is not something the ardent wine collector wants to experience. On the other side, if the cellar is too humid, your corks could become moldy, which leads to contamination.
