A climate controlled wine cellar is purpose built to provide the best possible storage environment for a collection of wines. It must be meticulously constructed, in order to achieve the desired climate conditions for aging and storing wines. In addition, the wine storage space must be equipped with the proper wine cellar refrigeration system Orange County.
Among the cooling systems available, a split system is considered the most efficient cooling option. This type of climate control system is designed to provide noise reduction, as well as flexible installation, because of its various connection options. A split wine cellar refrigeration system separates the evaporator coil from the condensing unit.
The evaporator coil is responsible for circulating cool air into the wine cellar. The condensing component of a split wine cellar climate control system consists of a coil, a compressor, and a condensing fan.
This split feature allows the noisiest part of the refrigeration equipment (the condensing unit) to be located remotely. Placing the compressor some distance away from the wine room (such as outdoors or in an adjacent room) helps promote a wine storage environment that is free from noise and heat exhaust. The evaporator coil, on the other hand, is mounted inside the wine cellar space.
Let’s take a look at this recently completed wine cellar refrigeration installation project by Arctic Metalworks. The project involves replacing an existing wine cellar climate control system that was venting hot air into the living space and was creating a lot of noise. In addition, the cooling unit was not designed to cool such a large residential wine cellar.
After their initial inspection, the Arctic team suggested removing the wine room’s through-the-wall breeze air style refrigeration unit, and replacing it with one of their cooling products: the Arctic 0050 ½ HP split system. For this wine cellar refrigeration system Orange County project, Arctic Metalworks installed the condensing unit outdoors.
Refrigeration lines and a drain line are used to connect the condensing component of the refrigeration system to the evaporator coil that is located inside the wine storage space. A refrigerant line set consists of flexible tubes, or rigid copper, that is used to transport Freon to the cooling system, while a drain line is responsible for drawing off the liquid formed during the dehumidifying process.
