The Significance of Wine Cellar Cooling Units

October 24th, 2010

Wine Cellar CoolingCaring for your wine collection doesn’t stop from building a wine cellar of your own.  The truth is, it is just the beginning of carefully making sure each bottle gets optimum care as much as possible.

The next most important aspect that you need to keep in mind is temperature. Every wine lover knows the significance of having the ideal wine storage temperature for wines. In fact, this factor can make or break your wine collection. Thus, knowing the appropriate temperature for your wine cellar is a must!

To properly cool and humidify a cellar, you need a cooling system designed specifically for cooling a wine cellar. 55-58 degrees and 55-75% relative humidity must always be maintained and these can be accomplished with the use of wine cellar cooling units. Some people, like Charles Klatskin insist upon keeping their wines at a chillier 50 degrees, so while your temperature can vary, the important point here is to never cook your wine. Leaving your wine in a hot car during the summer could do irreparable damage.

Wine cellar cooling units are mainly used for wine refrigeration purposes to keep every bottle in good shape and from getting spoiled. They are designed to keep humidity instead of drying the cellar, although sometimes additional humidification may be necessary in very dry climates. And, the good thing about it is, there are wide arrays of cooling units available to use but each serve their function best depending on the kind of cellar you have.

If you have the budget, going for a split air system fits perfectly for you. This type of cooling unit can be expensive but it will prove its worth in time. They are very recommendable as they act like a central air-conditioning system which provides you with total control of your wine cellar cooling.

But what if you have very limited budget? Worrying is not the answer. You can seek other alternatives.  Please feel free to contact one of our design specialists to talk about your unique situation so we can help you make the best decision.
