The wine cellar cooling system is the most significant feature of a home wine cellar design. These control systems are specifically engineered for reaching and maintaining the most suitable and ideal wine storage environment. These wine cellar refrigeration systems make sure that the temperature, as well as the humidity in your home wine cellar are kept between 55 to 59 degrees Fahrenheit, and at 70% RH, respectively.
Wine cellar refrigeration units come in varying sizes and cooling capacities. Each specific unit can accommodate the unique requirements of a home or commercial wine cellar. Installing the right wine cellar cooling system will help provide the appropriate storage conditions for your wines, for their undisturbed aging.
Just recently, Arctic Metalworks completed a Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling system installation project. The neighborhood is located in the northeast part of Orange County, in California. It spans 8′ x 8′ and is 30 inches deep.
The area may be small, but this custom home wine cellar design can house up to 392 bottles of wine. This wine enclave with high functionality was just a small arched free living space, converted by Arctic Metalworks, who teamed up with Coastal Custom Wine Cellar’s Jerry Wilson and contractor Dave Lakin.
Because of the very limited space for the custom home wine cellar, Arctic Metalworks chose to install the smallest cooling unit they have — the Arctic 0025 (1/4 HP Split System). This split system is the most convenient cooling unit, because it is the most quiet among all of the cooling systems for wine cellars. A split type is composed of two components — an evaporator and a condenser. Since the two components are separated, the installation becomes flexible and cooling efficiency is increased.
For the Yorba Linda home wine cellar cooling system, the evaporator unit was installed on top of the arched area of the custom wine cellar. The condenser was placed outdoors, and it was connected to the evaporator through the use of a 20-feet line, running between the first and second floors.
This Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling system installed by Arctic Metalworks has a remote controller with LED, and a thermostat, which will allow the home wine cellar owner to set and closely monitor the storage conditions inside the wine cellar, using his own smart phone.
Additionally, the cooling system was encased inside a grill box made of lattice with a cover, which was customized by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars. This box with a cover hides the machine, while at the same time protecting it from external physical and environmental factors. The lattice enclosure was also made out of the same material as the wine racks Yorba Linda — both are clean and seamless looking.
Arctic Metalworks is one of the leading manufacturers of high quality Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling systems in California. They offer yearly maintenance contracts for every cooling unit they install.
For this home wine cellar design project, Arctic offered to visit the residential wine storage space twice within the year to clean the condenser, check the Freon charge and pressure, test the control for the pump, and clear any debris on the condenser, located outside the wine storage room.
In addition to the Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling system, the insulation and the vapor barriers are also among the most important parts of a home wine cellar design. Insulating the wine room walls will help in maintaining the ideal wine storage environment, while adding vapor barriers will prevent the moisture from moving out of the room. The presence of these components in your home wine cellar will let the cooling unit perform more efficiently, while preventing it from overheating.
For this Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling system installation project, contractor Dave Lakin was the one who applied the insulation, the vapor barriers, and the drywall in the custom home wine cellar. Also, he provided a termination point for the drainage, and a power receptacle for the evaporator. Dave also installed brick panels made of veneer, to give the wine cellar design a rustic look.
The design and installation of the wine racks Yorba Linda was done by Coastal Custom Wine Cellars. The bottom half of the wine room is composed of double-deep racks, with case lots and diamond bins, and a single-slot vertical column for additional wine rack storage. The double-deep configuration was ideal for the wine cellar design because of the very limited space — it increased the bottle capacity of the wine room.
The top portion of the wine racks Yorba Linda was a single-deep storage and display space, with an arched tabletop of high-reveal display rows, for individual bottle opening. On both far sides of the wine racks are drawers and cabinets, for the wine glasses and paraphernalia.
Moreover, this home wine cellar design and Yorba Linda wine cellar cooling system installation project features a flooring made of reclaimed wine barrel, and an entry door made of seamless glass. The flooring was fabricated from retired oak wine barrels. The flooring added a unique aura to the enclave, — no two wine barrel planks are alike. On the other hand, the frameless glass used as a door simply increased the aesthetics of the entire home wine cellar design.
Home wine cellar construction needs careful planning and carrying out — from the wine cellar design phase until the end of the construction. This is why consulting a wine cellar builder for the right materials and a wine cellar cooling system specialist for the right refrigeration system is important.
