Why is it Important to Invest in a Wine Room Refrigeration System?
Every wine connoisseur and enthusiast should know the importance of a wine cellar, as well as the need to invest in wine room refrigeration. The choice of wine cellar refrigeration systems Los Angeles California will make or break your wine collection and, consequently, your investment. Investing in a good quality wine cellar refrigeration system will save you from losing your hard-earned money in the future.
Wines are highly sensitive to changes in storage temperature and humidity. Even the amount of light inside the storage room can significantly affect the temperature, and, through that, the process of wine aging. Because of this, it is very important to store wines in climate controlled wine storage facilities, to allow the flavor, color and aroma of wines to develop well over time.
What are the Basic Components of a Wine Cellar Refrigeration System?
In general, a wine room refrigeration system is composed of a motor, a compressor, a condenser, an expansive valve, an evaporator, and a suitable refrigerant. A refrigerant is a chemically stable and inert compound with desirable thermodynamic properties. The refrigerant in the refrigeration system removes the heat in the air inside the storage room as it is vaporized, and releases the heat outside the storage room as it is condensed.
A good quality wine cellar refrigeration system should have a thermally-stable, lubricated motor and an expansion valve that can maintain a constant coil temperature, promoting proper humidity. Furthermore, the system should (ideally) be noiseless, aesthetically unobtrusive with minimum space requirements, and contained in an insulated, rust-proof casing.
Aside from these physical characteristics of an ideal wine cellar refrigeration system, it should be able to achieve and maintain the desired wine storage conditions to preserve the quality of wines and bring them to their fullest potential.
