Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Have the perfect room in mind to be converted into your new wine cellar? Before you start building a wine cellar, make sure to pay attention to all the details in the beginning to avoid unexpected investments. A common factor that people forget about is the wine cellar temperature.

It’s recommended to use an average wine cellar storage temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit, with humidity falling between 60 – 70%. Wine bottles stored below 50 degrees Fahrenheit will hardly age, and wine stored above 80 degrees Fahrenheit will cook. Therefore, most people build their wine cellar in a basement or underground space.

If the wine room you have in mind is perfect except for the temperature, consider a wine cellar cooling unit. Most modern wine cellar cooling units monitor and control both temperature and humidity which allows your wines to age under perfect conditions.

There are quite a few variables to consider before choosing the size and type of unit. The factors to identify before wine cellar cooling unit installation include the location of the room, the climate of your location, the total dimensions of the room, and the manner of wine cellar insulation.
