Custom Wine Cellars San Francisco has designed and built numerous storage facilities for residential and commercial purposes. All the wine rooms that our wine cellar specialists construct are built to last and function efficiently. We make sure that the storage spaces we create are ideal for aging wines by installing dependable refrigeration systems manufactured by the most trusted HVAC companies.
Why Do You Need a Cooling Unit Specifically Designed for Wine Cellars?
Unlike other beverages, wine can easily lose its flavor and spoil if kept outside the ideal storage temperature and humidity levels. If you store wine in an environment that is too hot, too cold or worse, one that frequently fluctuates, you’ll end up with a disappointingly vinegar-tasting wine. Wine cellars are climate-controlled storage systems that are built to keep wines safe from spoilage and allow them to age properly.
If you own one to two bottles, you probably won’t need to have a wine cellar built. But, those who own large quantities of wines or are in the wine selling industry should have a custom wine cellar constructed.
All functional wine cellars must have a cooling system installed, so that they can provide the standard storage temperature and humidity for wines. Regular air conditioning units and refrigerators are not made for wine storage purposes. HVAC systems that are specially designed for wine cellars are built to meet the ideal storage requirements in a wine room.
Historically, people used to store wines in caves and underground spaces because these areas are adequately cold and moist, which are the characteristics of an ideal wine storage system. In this modern age, builders create wine cellars to mimic or recreate the environment in those caves and underground spaces. Wine cellar cooling unit manufacturers design their products to effectively keep the climate inside wine rooms constantly cool at 50 to 55 degrees Fahrenheit and consistently humid at 50% to 60% Relative Humidity (RH).
Can You Install Any Kind of Cooling Unit in Your Wine Cellar?
No. Each storage facility is unique, which means that each wine cellar has different requirements. The cooling unit you should install in your wine cellar should meet those requirements. To determine the most appropriate refrigeration system for your wine room, there are various factors to consider, such as size of the structure, bottle capacity, location, and more.
To make sure that you pick the right HVAC unit for your wine cellar, you need to work with a cooling specialist in California. A professional cooling technician will be able to assess thoroughly the storage requirements in your wine room, so that the most appropriate refrigeration system can be installed.
