The proper wine storage temperature for optimum aging is between 50°F and 59°F, with humidity levels kept within 50% to 60%. A wine cellar cooling system is designed to help maintain constant temperature and humidity levels, allowing wines to age to their full potential. A heat load calculation is usually conducted to determine the right cooling unit for a particular wine enclave.
This climate control system can be located in any indoor area outside the wine room, and can be ducted 25 feet away from the enclosure.
This setup results in an ultra-quiet wine storage environment without any visible equipment in the cellar.
For this particular wine cellar project, the cooling unit is mounted inside the ceiling. Ductwork is used to supply cold air to and from the enclosure, and exhaust hot air to the outdoors.
