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.
Doors should be solid wood andor insulated and weather stripping is vital for an air tight seal.Glass should be double pane with a minimum of a 12" gap. Lighting should be low wattage. The Wine Cellar Refrigeration Units Wine cellar refrigeration unit types and models are usually chosen based on room size, which is usually measured in cubic feet (Length x Width x Height). Other factors to consider are the location of your wine room and the geographical aspects of your home because they can affect the temperature and humidity of your wine room. Measure the size of the room then use a thermometer and hygrometer to test the room's natural temperature and humidity.
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.
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.
