Generally, wine needs certain conditions to age nicely.
If you invest in a wine collection, you must also invest in an environment that can keep your collection safe for years to come.
The average room temperature is about 68 degrees Fahrenheit, but unfortunately, this is not the right temperature for wine storage. The average un-even temperatures for refrigerators, on the other hand, are too cold. The optimum temperature to store wine is between 53 plus 58 degrees. Controlling wine cellar temperature prevents swings. For wine cellars, temperature swing is not ideal; even slight temperature fluctuations of 3 degrees can compromise flavors, then during the day, frequent fluctuations in temperature cause wine to expand as it heats up. It then contracts as it cools. Wine oxidizes more when it is exposed to airflow. Therefore, a cooling plan for a wine cellar should be designed to control temperature plus humidity to preserve your wine collection. It should have the capability to maintain ideal conditions. The first cooling plan ideal for your wine cellar is the VRF system. A VRF plan allows you to control your zones independently, meaning it can keep your wine cellar at odd un-even temperatures plus humidity levels than the rest of the building. It provides distinct temperature control plus is perfect for controlling humidity. Next is the ductless split temperature, which uses a small evaporator component inside the wine cellar, plus the main condenser situated outside the wine cellar. Perfect option if vibrations plus noise are a problem for your wine cellar. Consult an HVAC contractor on the right HVAC plan for your wine cellar.
