Wine Cellar Cooling Units
For the serious wine collector in Las Vegas, a refrigerated wine cellar is a must.
In order to get a stable and efficient climate-controlled environment, working with a refrigeration expert, experienced specifically in wine cellar construction is also a must. Refrigerating an individual room like a wine cellar is not the same as an HVAC system.
The equipment and construction techniques are completely different. Wine cellars require specialists to ensure that your wine cellar cooling unit is capable maintaining the room at a constant temperature efficiently without creating condensation due to trapped of leached humidity.
At Custom Wine Cellars Las Vegas, we offer a range different types of wine cellar cooling units provided by the more reliable manufacturers in the industry.
We will help you in choosing the perfect climate control system for your needs and make sure the wine cellar itself has been constructed properly
Wine Cellar Cooling Units: What Experts in Las Vegas Have to Offer
Finding competent specialist wine cellar builders is not as easy as you might think. You need to find someone that can interpret and build the design that you want. Plus, the build should be flexible enough to fit with your budget. The contractor not only must have technical skills to install wine racking systems, wine cellar doors, and lighting, but also should have the ability to build wine cellar according to the technical requirements. Understanding the need for a vapor barrier, proper insulation, exterior grade doors, glazing options, and sealing of the complete enclosure are paramount to a well-built wine room.
A contractor should have experience in all of the above, with a number of local successful projects in their portfolio. In addition, the contractor should know how the wine cellar cooling unit interacts with the local environment.
Custom Wine Cellars Las Vegas Has a Team of Knowledgeable and Experienced Wine Cooling Unit Specialists
You should hire a team that has tested and proven knowledge and experience in wine cellar refrigeration. They should be accurately and confidently guide you which of the following types of wine cooling units is ideal for your wine cellar:
Through the Wall or Self-Contained Systems – This type of wine cellar cooling unit is placed in between the wall studs. An HVAC expert is not required for the installation. But, you will need an exhaust room for proper dissipation of the heat coming from the wine cellar refrigeration system.
Ducted Cooling Wine Cellar Cooling Units – The notable advantage of the ducted wine cooling system is that there is no visible equipment inside your wine room because both the evaporator and condenser are installed outdoors. The installation requires ductwork to allow the cold air to be ducted to and from the cellar.
Ductless Split Systems – The ductless split wine cellar cooling unit is recommended by master builders in Las Vegas to wine collectors who do not want noise coming from their climate control system.
Planning and forethought for their proper installation as well as determining supply and return register placement in walls and ceilings are essential. The bottom line is that a good contractor should have a working knowledge of proper wine room airflow, and the ability to expertly blend your design elements with the functions of a wine room cooling unit.

How We Determine the Right Size of Wine Cellar Cooling Unit for Each Project
At Custom Wine Cellars Las Vegas, we perform a standard procedure, which is the heat load calculation. Through this process, we will be able to identify the capacity and size of the wine cellar cooling unit that fits your residential or commercial wine cellar in Las Vegas.
Let us help you determine the correct unit and size by doing a heat load calculation, while square footage is a basic guide for determining the size. It does not capture all the heat factors for a cellar such as these:
We consider the following factors in doing the heat load calculation:
- Windows, glass walls, and lighting – The amount of glass used on the walls or windows and the lighting in your wine cellar may necessitate a unit with higher cooling capacity.
- Traffic – If your wine cellar gets high traffic – thus frequently allowing outside air into the cellar (such as in commercial cellars) – you will need a higher capacity unit than the square footage would suggest.
- Bottle rotation – If you rotate the bottles in your cellar often, your heat load will be higher, increasing the need for a higher capacity unit. (Initially, most cellars take longer to cool to the desired temperature, since all bottles in the cellar must be cooled simultaneously).
- Climate – Areas with high ambient temperatures or cellars with poor insulation may require higher capacity units.
How High-Grade Wine Cellar Cooling Units Installed by Las Vegas HVAC Specialists Can Regulate the Humidity Levels
Humidity is a critical, yet often overlooked feature in wine cellar design. The ideal wine cellar humidity level is between 60 to 70 percent. If the humidity falls outside the normal range, wine quality may be affected in a number of ways.
When the humidity is higher than 70%, it will likely cause mold and degradation of the labels and glue. When the humidity is below 50%, corks will begin to dry out, resulting in oxidation of wines inside the bottle that could affect the flavor and aroma, and worst case scenario, it could spoil the wine.
Humidity problems can be avoided with proper planning and implementation. Firstly, vapor barrier should be installed in the wine room. A wine cellar cooling unit works well with a humidifier if you are located in a drier climate. The humidifier will add moisture to the air inside the wine cellar if it becomes too dry.
