How to Design the Perfect Home Wine Cellar

 

Five Types of Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Once you've got your entire cellar set up and insulated, it's time to decide which cooling unit best fits your wine collection.

Let's look into the 5 main types of cooling units to make sure you get the right one for the size and needs of your wine cellar, and whether it is a ducted or ductless application.

Ductless Wine Cellar Cooling Units

If you have a small space or space constraints, a ductless wine room cooler is perfect for you since they do not require any duct system. This type of system can be either self-contained or split.

1.) Self-Contained Ductless Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Self-Contained Ductless Wine Cellar Cooling Systems, also known as Through-the-Wall Wine Cellar Coolers, are installed through an existing wall, similar to how air conditioners are mounted to a wall.

They usually have wine room temperature control built into the unit. So if you have a small cellar, a Through-the-Wall Unit is the best choice.

Here's an example of a self-contained ductless wine cooling system.

2.) Ductless Split Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Ductless Split Wine Cooling Systems do not require venting, and the "split" refers to the two main components that are located in different locations. The evaporator is located inside the wine storage to draw in cold air, while the condenser is located outside to exhaust warm air. Want a noise-free wine cellar? Ductless Split Wine Refrigeration Units are the ultimate solution.

Here's an example of a ductless split wine cellar cooling system.

Ducted Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Ducted wine cellar cooling units connect a cooling system to a wine room via ductwork. They can be ducted up to 25 feet away and are installed in a remote location.

3.) Ducted Self-Contained Wine Cellar Cooling Units

A Fully-Ducted Self Contained System can be installed up to 25 ducted feet from the cellar. Usually, the evaporator and condenser are located in the same unit, which is quite convenient. So if you don't want your wine cellar refrigeration to be visible and keep your cellar as quiet as possible, then Fully-Ducted Self-Contained wine room coolers are the way to go. 

Here's an example of a fully-ducted self-contained wine cellar cooling unit.

4.) Ducted Split Wine Cellar Cooling Units

This type of wine cellar refrigeration unit provides you with complete control over the temperature and humidity levels in your cellar through ducts. This can be the most expensive wine cooling solution due to the extensive installation it requires, but it's all worth the penny.

You can have the Ducted Split Wine Cellar Cooling System installed up to 25 feet away from your cellar, providing you with the benefits of an extremely silent operation with no vibrations while also leaving more space, depending on the installation.

Here's an example of a ducted split wine cellar cooling unit.

Compact Wine Cellar Cooling Units

A compact wine refrigeration unit is a better value choice if your collection is in an enclosed space. So if you have a wine cabinet or a small wine cellar, compact, residential wine cellar coolers are a smarter alternative.

5.) Cabinet Wine Cellar Cooling Units

Cabinet Wine Cellar Coolers have a compact design and are perfect for cabinet installations. They are designed to accommodate wine cabinets and other constricted enclosures.
