The science of climate control in Wine Cellars
It is a place where wine under process for maturation is stored. There are two types of wine room, they are active and passive. The temperature control system is required only for active place. They shield the hot drinks from unwanted outside agencies. Moisture and maintaining optimum condition is very essential factors. Operational cellar must be constructed in such a way that proper stickiness in air must be sustained.
The right climate in the larder is very much required to safeguard the costly investment. Wine needs more time to mature, so it must be preserved till then. Some of it require even 10 years to become good. The longevity of larder refrigerating unit is essential. We have different seasons constituting varying condition. So, climate control becomes inevitable. Hot weather is not at all suitable for wine. It is a living organism. Heat will mature it more quickly. An optimal 50 to 70 % stickiness in the air must be maintained through humidity. It’s because of this high moisture content helps to sustain moisture inside the bottle allows the wine to stay in bottle itself rather than moving towards the cork and end up in evaporation. While building a larder priority is given to the weather control unit. You should understand importance of cooling unit, what type of unit will suit, its’ functionality.
The storage room can be either refrigerated or kept passive. Passive storage is a room where it is stored relying only on environmental conditions. It is always present in basements and closets. Cooled room is one which has a cooling unit and the wines are preserved in a conditioned atmosphere. If the place is present in the area where there is extreme weather like dry, very cool climate surely it must be protected using conditioned place. There is many refrigeration equipment available in market. Going for a commercial cooling unit is worth the money. Reliable and durable cooling system should be the solution.” Ducted unit” is very easy to assemble and sustain. It is preferred for industrial and for houses. The other wonderful option is the “split unit” extremely superior in “spreading of air”, vibration free”,” less noise”. This makes it ideal for maturing wine. It can be fitted anywhere and suited for any larder design. Wall cooling system is a good choice for wide air distribution. It is perfect for small or medium sized room. The stickiness in air is maintained by” Humidifier”. They are obtainable for “ducted”, “Spilt” units. It can be integrated with cooling systems. Cellar design specialist will be able to guide what type of humidifiers and refrigerating units must be used for different places.
Choosing right design and items by which the room will be made is also very essential. You should take proper care in selecting the wood for construction. Wood that you choose should go hand in hand with your design. There are modern and traditional style of cellar. Transitional is between those two types. Better to have specialist opinion to build a full-fledged larder with all the facilities needed to get a good quality wine.
