Wine Cellar Cooling Units –

Systems at the Heart of Commercial & Residential Custom Wine Cellars

Understanding the importance of wine cellar cooling units or refrigeration systems is of critical importance when considering the construction of a custom wine cellar. Whether your particular needs are for a residential wine cellar in a home or a commercial wine room in a restaurant or hospitality sector, the climate, stability and need for a proper wine room environment cannot be expressed enough in its importance with regards to the preservation of your collection.

In the world of wine collecting, a custom wine cellar can be best described as a space in your home or restaurant that has a unique life of its own. The design of the wine cellar’s space is the body, the appearance, the attire, the look, the image that the wine cellar presents itself as. The personality that the collector envisions the wine room to have.

Then there is the wine, which could best be described as the soul of the wine cellar; it breathes life into the space, defines its character, and establishes the nuances that every different wine room has. A custom built wine room is as much a tribute to the wine in the collection as it is homage to the collector’s passion for the finer things in life.

The heart of Custom Wine Cellars – Wine Cellar Refrigeration Systems

And carrying this analogy a bit further, the wine cooling system could best be described as the heart of the wine cellar. Its primary function is to provide the life blood for the wine room. Its purpose is strictly utilitarian and absolutely essential to any wine room’s proper function. Without this, the wine room, in essence, dies.

What is the best wine cellar cooling system choice for my wine room?

This is probably one of the most essential discussions that we have when establishing our clients’ specific wine cooling needs. For example, should it be a split or a self-contained refrigeration system? Which would be better? The answer is not quite as simple as one might at first think. There are many factors that come into play, size of the space, available budget, ability to utilize an adjacent room for ventilation and the desired aesthetics of the wine room.

Through a series of very specific questions we work with our clients to determine the pros and cons of the different approaches, why one option might be better than another as well as to narrow down the specific branded units within each possible approach that would best suit the desires of the client and the space available.
