26 Aug Types Of Wine Cellar Climate Control Systems

It’s exciting to design a new wine cellar, with all the possibilities for wine racks, gorgeous wood, stone, floor finishes, and wall colours. However, entering the unknown world of custom wine cellar temperature control can be daunting, especially when selecting the most suitable wine cellar cooling unit for your needs.

Types of Wine Cellar Climate Control Systems

Which type of wine storage system do you need—a freestanding unit, a through-the-wall setup, a ducted design, or a split system? Let’s look at the options and see what makes each one a good fit for a wine cellar cooling system.

1. Through The Wall Custom Wine Cellaring Cooling Units

Most wine cellars use through-the-wall cooling units explicitly designed for use in temperature-sensitive environments like wine cellars. These compact wine cellar cooling systems are not only cheap but also simple to set up (no HVAC specialist needed) and replace in the event of a breakdown. Vents for wine storage areas are usually 14 1/2 inches wide and made to fit between the studs of conventional wall construction; to be effective, they must exhaust into a room that is at least as big as the wine cellar.

These wine storage refrigerators are shipped and can be set up by a single person in a short time frame. One drawback is that fixing them after a malfunction is highly challenging.

2. Ducted Self-Contained Wine Cellaring Cooling System

It was only within the last couple of decades that professionals have had access to self-contained ducted wine cellar cooling systems, and since then, they have become the standard in the industry. These systems work well in wine cellars between 750 and 4000 cubic feet.

These wine storage units are an excellent choice for bigger or commercial wine cellars because of their greater cooling capacity, integrated heating, and humidity control. The ability of a technician to access the system for repair by utilising a series of detachable panels is one of the significant benefits offered by these systems.

It enables the technician to access the unit for recharging the coolant or changing parts that could have malfunctioned. As a result, the wine cellar’s design is more aesthetically pleasing since just the supply and return grills are visible. Most wine cellar air conditioning units are sold with a digital thermostat/humidistat combo and control wiring already attached for your convenience.

3. Ductless Split Wine Cellaring Systems

For many wine storage needs, a ductless split system wine cellar climate control unit is the best option. A ductless cooling and heating unit is often the only option when there is no space for traditional ducts. The system’s two primary parts are designed to work together and are suitable for use in varying-sized wine rooms.

The evaporator, which includes a control system, cooling coil, and fan, is installed in the wine cellar. At the same time, the compressor can be placed in a separate mechanical room or outside to reduce noise and heat. The compressor will need airflow and space to dissipate heat if installed indoors. Generally speaking, the volume of the room should be at least as large as the storage room.

4. Ducted Split Wine cellar systems

The ducted split wine cellar systems are the most cutting-edge method of controlling temperature and humidity in a wine cellar. Because there is only a need for two grills in the wine cellar to accommodate the supply and return ducts, split system cooling units are frequently the first choice for wine cellars in restaurants and private wine collections. This is because these units are more aesthetically appealing.

In wine cellar cooling systems like these, you’ll find the widest variety of features, including heaters, built-in humidifiers, and remote systems compatible with whole-house management systems. Control wiring and temperature and humidity regulation are included as well.

It is possible to install the evaporator next to or close to the wine cellar, with supply and return ducts leading into the cellar as well as two copper set lines leading to a remote compressor in a separate mechanical room or even outside. Compressors generate heat; just like in ductless split wine cellar cooling, that heat should be dissipated.
