Proper storage of wines requires a climate controlled environment that will help keep temperature and humidity at constant levels. Wines mature to their full potential when stored under stable conditions. The ideal temperature range is between 50 and 59 degrees Fahrenheit, while the appropriate humidity level is 60% to 75%.
Wine cellar refrigeration systems Orange County California are specifically designed to help maintain the right climate conditions necessary for storing and aging wines. These units regulate the storage environment, to prevent sudden changes in temperature and humidity that could otherwise be detrimental to the overall quality of wines.
Self-contained through the wall cooling systems, ductless-split climate control systems, and ducted air handler refrigeration systems are the three primary types of custom wine cellar cooling units. These units offer a range of installation options and cooling capacities, and come in different designs and features that can accommodate various applications.
For optimum functionality and versatility, most wine cellar refrigeration systems come with wine cooling accessories, such as a mini condensate pump, suction line accumulator, rough-in kit electrical install for DC-1 controller and evaporator coil, correct gauge electrical wiring harness, digital controller mounting plate, and outdoor protection system condenser enclosure.
The CP mini or mini condensate pump is designed to efficiently pump condensate waters. Its compact feature allows for ease of installation and maintenance. This wine cooling accessory generates little noise and does not take up space.
The suction line accumulator (or SLA) is a device that prevents the sudden flow of liquid refrigerant to the compressor. Allowing excess refrigerant to get into the compressor can cause damage to the pistons or scrolls. It can also lead to loss of oil in the condensing unit, which can then result in mechanical failure or damage. The SLA comes in three sizes that can accommodate any connection sizes.
The RIK or rough-in kit installer provides ease of installation of controller and control wiring. This accessory is a required component for DC-1 controller and evaporator coil. It is designed to help prevent re-opening of walls and construction delays. The kit includes 2 2×4 boxes, 2 connectors, and a 25’ plastic flexible conduit.
A wiring harness or wiring assembly is designed to transmit electrical power, that will help enhance the performance of custom wine cellar cooling systems, as well as minimize chances of interference. The wiring has marked and reinforced tabs on both ends to provide easy setup of the system.
The DCP or digital controller plate houses the DC-1 controlling unit. This installation accessory consists of a 2×4 box that can be mounted inside or outside the wine cellar. It is designed to fit the controller, and can be painted to complement the interior of any living space.
The outdoor enclosure is a wine cooling accessory that provides a degree of outdoor protection to the condensing unit all year round. This component is highly recommended for all system setup that require outdoor installations.
These installation components and wine cooling accessories are manufactured by US Cellar Systems, one of the leading names in designing and creating innovative wine cellar refrigeration systems Orange County California.
