Avoid Domestic Air Conditioning: Similarly, home air conditioning provides a poor environment for aging your wines, as it removes the humidity from the air which can lead to corks drying out. Additionally, if air conditioning is only turned on at certain times during the day then the wine will become subject to wide temperature fluctuations, which will inevitably cause irreparable damage to your wine. To properly cool and humidify a cellar you will need a cooling system designed specifically for cooling a wine cellar.
Split Cooling versus Self-Contained Cooling: Self-contained systems are less expensive and simple to install but possible downsides include the noise it produces during normal operation and a shorter life span (around 5 to 6 years) compared to a split cooling system. The availability of a suitable adjacent room for ventilation can also be a factor but this could be solved by using air ducts to control where the warm air can be vented. One such wine cellar cooling system that uses this method is the Cellarmate Self-Contained System. Of course, there will be additional costs depending on the circumstances surrounding the installation.
