Ducted System; A ducted cooling system is perfect for those collectors that don’t want any sort of unsightly equipment or unit of any kind inside their cellar. Using a cooling unit that utilizes a duct system allows the unit itself to be placed far away from your cellar yet still provide quality air conditioning. Since this type of system allows you to position your unit farther from your collection than other options, a ducted system is essentially the quietest unit and produces the least amount of vibrations that can potentially affect your collection. This option offers the ability for outdoor or indoor placement for your unit, depending on what can accommodate your wine cellar best.
Split systems come in handy when dealing with site difficulties or when installation flexibility is needed. On the other hand his wine cellar cooling unit costs more than self-contained ones and requires an HVAC professional to install it. Ideally, the two units must be at least 50 feet apart, which in most cases means that the condenser unit might have to be located outside the house. This means extra costs for the condenser housing, pipelining sets and power source.
Why is Humidity Important? Humidity is a critical feature often overlooked in wine cellar design. 50% - 70% is recognized as adequate, with 60% the ideal. When the humidity is higher than 70%, it will likely cause mold and degradation of the labels and glue. When the humidity is below 50%, corks will begin to dry out resulting in loss of liquid in the bottles and possible degradation of the wine.
Brands to Know About: Before you buy the first wine cellar cooling unit you come across, it’s wise to browse through the various brands and systems available to you. Three of the most reputable brands include Breezeaire, Wine-Mate and CellarPro. Within these three brands, there are many different types, sizes and features available to help you find the best unit for your wine collection. Some of units have a temperature sensor located behind the return air grills that create a carefully controlled environment.
