The second type is the Split Cooling System. This type of wine cellar cooling unit is essentially two separate units, the condenser unit and the evaporator unit. The condenser, which is usually situated outside the house, supplies refrigerant liquid to the evaporator via a compressor, which is normally wall mounted inside the wine room. The evaporator then cools the air that comes into contact with it by turning humid air into liquid, which is then collected outside the wine room.
If humidity is too high, you risk growing mold in your corks, labels and wine racks. If the temperature is too cold, the wine becomes dormant and would end up tasting flat instead of being fruity and sparkling. If the temperature is too high, you risk cooking the wine and aging it prematurely. Ideally, however, the cellar room itself should be designed and constructed precisely with the right conditions for these temperature and humidity variables to work.
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.
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.
