If you have a personalized wine cellar in your residence, it is crucial to regulate the cellar temperature and humidity to maintain the ideal conditions for aging and flavor preservation. The absence of a climate control system can lead to undesirable wine cellar temperature fluctuations that might affect the taste of your cherished wines.

Alpine Heat & Air specializes in crafting and installing wine cellar climate control systems. As the premier experts in wine cooling systems in Central Oregon, we can assist you in choosing the most suitable climate control system for your wine cellar.

Types of Wine Cellar Climate Control Systems

Our wine cellar climate control systems come in a variety of sizes, options, and designs. After you’ve selected your ideal wine cellar climate control system, our professional team will manage the installation, service, and maintenance so it will consistently deliver the climate your wine requires. All the cooling system brands we offer are constructed by the top names in the industry and can last for many years. Schedule your n-home climate control system consultation to learn more.

Through-the-wall Unit

A through-the-wall cooling unit is a cost-effective way to control the climate of your small or mid-size wine cellar for optimal temperature and humidity. These climate control systems don’t need any ductwork or refrigeration lines and are totally self-contained, much like a window air conditioner. They do require a larger interior area outside the wine cellar for proper venting. They’re designed to be mounted between the studs into the wine cellar so that the unit will be visible in the wine cellar. This dependable design can be a bit noisier than other wine cellar options but effective and economical.

Redundant Split System

Installed by one of our HVAC professionals, a split cooling system is the top-of-the-line, longest-lasting option for cellars ranging from 200 to 2,000 square feet. These systems can be installed indoors or out, providing the most accurate temperature and humidity settings. They’re extremely quiet and vibration-free—especially when installed outdoors, like a central air conditioning system. The cool—not cold—air these systems generate keeps your wine from cooling down too quickly, potentially disturbing the taste of your favorite vintages. They also work great in areas with cold or hot temperature extremes.

Duct System

If you have a way to vent your cooling unit to a location up to approximately 25 feet outside the cellar, a ducted cooling system may be the way to go. The unit is self-contained but is connected to ductwork that runs from the cooling system to the wine cellar. This allows for the flow of cool air into the cellar and warm air out. A ducted system makes for an attractive presentation inside the cellar, and works for any size cellar, whether in a larger residential or a commercial setting. The units take up less space in the cellar, allowing you to store more wine, and are quieter than a through-the-wall unit.

Wine Cellar Climate Control System

Wine plays a significant role in the lives of many, whether it's tasting, collecting, or sharing with loved ones. Climate Control Company can elevate and safeguard your wine experience by crafting a personalized wine room for your residence in Central Oregon.

Importance of Controlled Environment

To achieve the best flavor, quality wine must be aged in a precisely climate controlled setting. Simply using a portable air conditioner or window unit won't suffice for a dedicated wine room if you are passionate about your wine collection.

Key Element: Stability

Beyond temperature and humidity (which we'll discuss shortly), stability is paramount. Any temperature fluctuations exceeding 5°F are deemed unacceptable, necessitating an advanced climate control mechanism.

Optimal Storage Temperature

It's crucial to note that the ideal storage temperature differs from the ideal serving temperature. Although 55 degrees is generally recommended for storing both red and white wines, serving temperatures vary. Storing wine at higher temperatures accelerates aging and brings out undesirable flavors, while lower temperatures slow down aging without causing harm.

Humidity Concerns

Dry air negatively impacts wine storage by drying out and shrinking corks, allowing more air to interact with the wine. Storing wine horizontally prevents cork dryness. To maintain cork integrity, the wine room's humidity should fall between 60 and 80 percent.

Diverse Options

If the idea of a new wine room or cellar excites you, contact Climate Control Company to explore the array of choices available. Additionally, remember that investing in an appealing home wine cellar can enhance the value of your home in Glenwood Springs, Aspen, or Vail, CO. Some real estate experts suggest that wine cellars are more sought after by buyers than in-home theaters. Don't forget to like and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more insightful content.
