However with such a broad selection of models and brands available in the market, choosing which unit to install can intimidate even the most enthusiastic of homeowners. The key to making that all importance decision lies in understanding the different types of cooling units available in the market and picking the one which meets the requirements of your home. Wine cellar cooling units are found in three main models, ducted, split system and through the wall, with each presenting its pros and cons, taking a closer look at the functions and features they entail will allow you to pick a system which works best for you and your home.
Ducted wine cellar cooling units are the ideal option for homeowners with a limited amount of space within the cellar as the cooling unit is installed outside in an adjoining space. These units are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation and are self-contained, combining both the evaporator and condenser within the same unit. In addition, this option employs the use of venting ducts which pass the cold air inside the cellar while removing the warm air, allowing your precious wine collection to cool at a comfortable temperature. The installation of this cooling unit away from the cellar itself allows it to operate with minimal noise and vibration, retaining the pristine look of your cellar with no obtruding machinery.
Similar to duct cooling units, split wine cellar cooling systems require only the evaporator to be installed inside the cellar itself whilst the condenser is installed remotely, giving you premium wine with minimal noise and vibration. Moreover, with no imposing units or machinery mounted upon walls, you can make optimum use of the space within your cellar leaving you with the maximum amount of storage. As the condenser is installed separately this option is ideal for spaces with limited duct work and exhaust airflow however as the condenser and evaporator are connected by the means of liquid, suction and electrical lines, contacting your H&H heating and air-conditioning experts to install the unit is advisable.
Through the Wall
The last option available on the market today is perhaps the most cost-effective of the lot. Through the wall cooling units are easy to install and do not require profession assistance. Like the ducted cooling unit, this option is designed to be completely self-contained and is commonly mounted between the posts of a wall. With the design following the simple structure of cool air entering the cellar while the warm air exists from the opposite side of the unit, this option is perfect for those looking for an inexpensive way of cooling the wine cellar. Although these units are user-friendly and economical it is also important to note that the installation of these coolers require a well-ventilated area adjoining the cellar where the absorbed heat can be exhausted. Many through the wall cooling units come equipped with digital control and bottle probe temperature meters, letting you create the perfect environment for storing wine.
