How do I know if my cooling unit is the right size?
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 size, it does not capture all the heat factors for a cellar such as these:
Windows, Glass walls and lighting
The amount of glass walls or windows in the wine cellar and lighting in your wine cellar may necessitate a unit with higher cooling capacity.
If your wine cellar is a high traffic area, frequently allowing outside air into the cellar (such as in commercial cellars), you will need a higher capacity unit than square footage would suggest.
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 desired temperature, since all bottles in the cellar must be cooled simultaneously).
Areas with high ambient temperatures or cellars with poor insulation may require higher capacity units.
New Wine Wall Cooling Unit
The Wine Wall Cooling System can control a broad range of wine storage conditions between 55°F(13°C) to 58°F(14°C). It also has the ability to cool wine to serving temperatures down to 45°F(7°C). An optimal humidifier can be installed to achieve 55 to 65% relative humidity.
The slim design mounts completely flush with the wine wall’s ceiling – ensuring no obtrusive equipment takes up valuable wine storage space. The sleek and modern look was designed to match the aesthetic of any wine space.
Easy Access and Installation
There are no tools required to remove the grille assembly, giving full access to the system’s internal components. Wine Guardian’s innovative hinge design acts as a second hand while installing it, so one person installations are simple.
The system’s innovative low-profile grille contains integral supply and return sections for efficient delivery of conditioned air to and from the wine wall.
Built to Last
The Wine Wall Ceiling System’s evaporator features an all-aluminum chassis and grille assembly and contains coated coils to ensure product durability.
The system’s remote interface controller gives you full control over the temperature and humidity conditions within the space. An extra controller and up to 3 remote air sensors can be remotely connected for precise measurements when the controller is installed outside the wine space.

How humidity affects wine
Humidity is a critical, yet often overlooked feature in wine cellar design. A relative humidity 50% to 70% is recognized as an adequate wine cellar humidity level, with 60% the ideal. Without ideal humidity, wine quality may be affected in a number of ways.
Higher than 70%
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 loss of liquid in the bottles and possible degradation of the wine.
The first step should be the installation of a vapor barrier around the entire room.
A cooling unit alone cannot add moisture or humidity to the cellar air. It needs a humidifier if you live in a dryer climate.
