Custom Wine Cellar Refrigeration Project

Wine cellars need a reliable wine cellar cooling system to serve their purpose, which is creating the ideal wine storage conditions. Wines have to be kept in an environment where there are stable temperatures and humidity levels. Learn more about the importance of working with a custom wine cellar refrigeration expert in Miami and tips on troubleshooting problems with wine cooling units.

Work with Custom Wine Cellar Refrigeration Experts to Ensure that Your Wine Storage Needs are Provided

Custom wine cellar refrigeration is crucial in preserving the quality of your wines. Wine is sensitive to external factors like light, heat, and vibration. Creating the perfect environment in wine storage facilities requires an efficient wine cellar cooling system installed by a professional.

At Wine Cellar Cooling Services Miami, we are composed of experts who are knowledgeable and skilled in custom wine cellar refrigeration and construction, as well as troubleshooting wine cooling units.

The Right Choice and Installation of a Wine Cellar Cooling System with the Help of an Expert in Custom Wine Cellar Refrigeration and Construction

Keep in mind that regular air conditioning systems are not recommended for wine cellars. These units are not designed to achieve the ideal wine storage temperature (55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit) and humidity level (60 to 70 percent). Wine cellar refrigeration units are engineered to create the environment needed by wine to mature properly and preserve their desirable characteristics for many years to come.

At Wine Cellar Cooling Services Miami, we help clients choose the most suitable wine cooling system for their space. We offer wine cellar refrigeration units for residential and commercial applications.

Choosing a wine cellar cooling unit requires the help of a professional. To prevent costly mistakes, it is best to consult with a custom wine cellar refrigeration expert like Wine Cellar Cooling Services Miami.

To determine the right type and brand of the climate control system, we will make a thorough assessment of your needs. We will conduct an on-site visit so we can check the room where the wine cellar will be constructed. This process will also help us know your space and technical requirements.

We will gather relevant information that will aid us in determining the type, size, and brand of wine cellar cooling system for your wine room. Here are the factors that we will consider:

  • Size of the wine room – Bigger rooms will need a high-capacity refrigeration system. 
  • Location of the wine cellar – The size and capacity of your wine cooling unit will also depend on where your wine room is located.  
  • Availability of an exhaust room for proper ventilation – There are some types of wine cellar cooling systems requiring an exhaust room for proper dissipation of the heat produced by the unit.  
  • Your aesthetic requirements  
  • Do you want the equipment to be hidden from view? 
  • Do you want the unit to be installed within the racking or mounted on the ceiling or wall?  
  • Do you want a contemporary-style cooling unit?  
  • The amount of glass to be used in the wine cellar  
  • Your budget 

After gathering the essential information, we will perform a heat load calculation. Factors that must be considered when calculating heat include the ceiling height, layout of your wine cellar, total square footage, and the number of entryways. We will conduct a survey to identify the heat sources because they can also affect the heat load calculation.

When this process is done correctly, it will help the builder determine the required capacity and the ideal style of wine cellar cooling system for your space. This will ensure that the right refrigeration system will meet the temperature requirements of your wine room.

Choosing the wrong climate control system will result in costly mistakes. For example, installing a larger size cooling unit will cause a rise in energy consumption. On the other hand, if a smaller refrigeration unit is installed, the ideal temperature range will not be achieved, causing wine damage. Therefore, making accurate calculations of the thermal heat load is vital. After the heat load calculation, our custom wine cellar refrigeration and construction expert will recommend the wine cooling unit of the right size and capacity for your wine room.

Polyurethane is efficient and effective. It expands and seals even the smallest gaps and cracks.
It is cost-savvy because it also acts as a vapor barrier.
It creates an excellent seal around pipes and wiring.

Effective Troubleshooting of Wine Cellar Refrigeration Units by Wine Cellar Cooling Service Miami

After completing the custom wine cellar refrigeration, you may experience some problems with your cooling unit. Below are the common issues faced by wine cellar owners and tips from our custom wine cellar refrigeration experts.

The Wine Refrigeration Unit is Not Running

The common reason why your cooling system is not running is that your cord has not been properly plugged or not plugged at all. When clients call us about this problem, we inform them to check the cord to see if it is plugged correctly. If it is plugged and still is not running, low power flow through the unit may cause the issue. You can check the power at the fuses and the receptacle. There might be loose connections or wirings. If you do not want to or cannot do it, we will send one of our HVAC technicians to do the job.

Another possible cause of an unstable environment is the temperature setting, which is higher than the ambient temperature. If this is the case, simply adjust the temperature in your wine cellar so that it is set lower than the ambient temperature.

Noisy Wine Cellar Cooling System

Any unwanted noise coming from your wine refrigeration unit is a sign that there is something wrong with the equipment. You can check for loose parts, including the bearings, fan blades, tubing contact, and screws. Fastening them will eliminate noise. Your wine cooling system will also produce noise if the fans are faulty.

Another common reason for a noisy wine cooling unit is that the system’s mounting area is not firm. Adding support to it will help reduce the noise.

We had clients who had a refrigeration unit with a malfunctioning component that caused the equipment to produce much noise. When this happens, you must hire a custom wine cellar refrigeration specialist like Custom Wine Cellars Services Miami.

Water Leakage

Very high humidity levels can cause water to leak from your wine cooling unit. The water’s passages may be blocked. If you are experiencing water leakage, you can use a drain line and clean the drip tray.
