Arctic Metalworks is the premiere manufacturer, supplier and installer of commercial grade wine cellar refrigeration units California. They are known as the refrigeration gurus of Southern California, not only for their high quality and reliable residential wine cellar refrigeration equipment, but also for the top notch service they provide their clients.
Established in 1962, this family owned and operated refrigeration company has taken on over a hundred projects involving wine cellar refrigeration installation, in residential and commercial applications. One of their recently completed projects involved replacing an existing cooling system in a California residential wine cellar.
When Arctic Metalworks first surveyed the location in the summer of 2013, the construction of a residential wine room under stairs conversion was well underway. The Arctic team offered to provide their services in wine cellar refrigeration units California, as well as that of Jerry Wilson from Coastal Custom Wine Cellars, for the wine racking systems.
However, the client had already decided to go with a much cheaper team, that installed modular storage and display solutions and a Breezaire wine cellar refrigeration unit. The quality of the modular wine rack system was okay for the amount paid, but the type of refrigeration equipment used was a different story altogether.
The original refrigeration specialist installed a residential wine cellar cooling system that did not have enough power to cool the California residential wine cellar. The brand new Breezaire refrigeration unit was icing up and leaking water as a result of running continuously to reach the ideal storage temperature of 55 degrees Fahrenheit. To make matters worse, Breezaire declared that the unit was installed improperly, thus voiding the warranty.
Arctic Metalworks ran diagnostics and confirmed that the existing wine cellar refrigeration system did not have the proper cooling capacity to create and maintain a conducive environment for storing and aging wines. The Arctic team removed the existing Breezaire cooling unit and replaced it with an Arctic 0025 ductless split system.
A ductless split system consists of an evaporator unit and a condensing unit, which are connected by a line set. Wine cellar refrigeration units California with a split feature not only promote whisper quiet operation, but also eliminate noise and heat exhaust. The condenser, which produces noise and heat, can be placed in a remote location (e.g. outdoors, or in the basement or garage), while the evaporator can be installed inside and/or near the wine room.
The condensing unit for this California residential wine cellar refrigeration installation project was located outdoors, to keep it well-ventilated at all times. It has a protective covering that shields it against harmful outside elements. Copper tubing and electrical wiring were used to connect the condenser to the evaporator, which is installed inside the wine room. Since the Arctic 0025 is a ductless split system, it requires no venting into an adjacent room.
Arctic Metalworks not only provides proactive maintenance of commercial and residential wine cellar refrigeration equipment, but also a warranty on parts and labor. The Arctic team has a 1% call back rate on all their wine cellar cooling systems, making their refrigeration products the most reliable on the market.
