Wine storage problems can occur if your cellar is not equipped with an efficient refrigeration system. In Dallas, Texas, Wine Cellar Specialists built a custom wine room installed with a cooling unit from US Cellar Systems. Learn more about this wine cooling installation project.
An Expert Built a Safe Wine Cellar for a Homeowner in Dallas, Texas
Wine will deteriorate when stored in poor conditions. It can mature properly when stored in a stable environment, like that of a climate-controlled wine room.
It really pays off to work with a builder who has extensive experience in wine cellar construction. Wine Cellar Specialists, one of our trusted dealers in Dallas, Texas, used one of our wine cooling systems to create a storage space for their client’s collection.
The Role of the Wine Cooling System in the Graceful Aging of Wine
You can enjoy your favorite vintages only if you store them in a wine cellar built by an expert. The quality of wine can be preserved in cool and humid conditions. It is not a good idea to store your collection in a regular refrigerator, kitchen cabinet, or boxes.
Temperature fluctuations can alter the chemical properties of the wine, causing an off flavor and aroma. When this happens, your investment will go to waste.
Variable humidity levels are also caused by poor storage conditions and can affect your wine’s overall quality. Maintaining the correct relative humidity in your wine cellar will preserve the integrity of the cork.
Low humidity levels will cause the cork to dry out and shrink, allowing an unwanted amount of air to enter the bottle and cause oxidation. On the other hand, higher humidity levels won’t damage the wine directly. However, it can damage the structural integrity of your wine room and the wine labels, as well.
Smart Choice of Refrigeration System for Wine Cellar Under the Stairs
The main goal of Wine Cellar Specialists is to design and build a safe storage place for their client’s collection. They offer a wide array of commercial grade cooling units to suit the unique requirements of wine enthusiasts.
In their recent home wine cellar project in Dallas, Texas, they needed to convert a small space under the stairs into a functional and contemporary wine display. They chose one of our wine refrigeration systems to achieve the optimum environment in the wine room.
The temperature must range from 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit, and the relative humidity must be within 60-70 percent.
US Cellar Systems Wall Mount Wine Cooling System Installation
On this wine cellar project, a refrigeration unit from US Cellar Systems was used to ensure proper storage of the client’s collection. They have been offering reliable wine cooling solutions for years. Our main goal is to let our customers enjoy wine for many years to come.
Wine Cellar Specialists chose a cooling system that would fit between the studs of the wall. To allow for 3 inches of foam to be added behind the refrigeration unit, they built the wall out slightly.
The condenser, which is the noisy component of a climate-controlled system, was placed in the courtyard, opposite the wine room. This resulted in a quiet operation in the wine cellar.
The position of the beams made it impossible for them to run the lines across the ceiling to the exterior. Since the customer did not want his ceiling to be cut or patched, they had to run the lines down the inner side of the adjoining elevator shaft. The lines ran across a soffit on the lower level and out to the courtyard.
The irregular height of the drain line made it a bit difficult for Wine Cellar Specialists to install the wine cooling system and have it drain properly. Therefore, they placed a mini pump inside the wine cellar refrigeration unit.
Features and Advantages of the Cooling Unit-Ideal for a Home Wine Cellar in Dallas Texas!
Wine Cellar Specialists used the WM6600 unit from US Cellar Systems. Since it is the largest single wall-mount unit, it was the best choice for a wine cellar built with a large amount of glass. It was mounted vertically between the wall studs at the end of the left wall, eliminating the use of floor space.
The unit was made of galvanized silver metal and equipped with a digital thermostat and temperature sensor. It has a rustproof aluminum housing and an automatic expansion valve installed in the factory for regulating the humidity.
To make it blend well with the steel beams of the staircase and the wall paint, it was applied with a powder color coat.
Modern Features of the Wine Room
In addition to ensuring that their client’s collection is safe, another goal of Wine Cellar Specialists is to create a custom wine display that stands out from the rest. They always see to it that every wine cellar they build suits both the aesthetic and functional requirements of the owner.
In this project, the homeowner wanted to build out the space under the staircase into a modern wine cellar. The stairs were made of bamboo wood steps and gray steel beams under the landing.
Wine Cellar Specialists constructed the clad framing from brushed aluminum and the ceiling from frosted glass to match the glass on the stairway. They also chose a contemporary style door with lock and straight handle.
Metal Wine Rack System
The home has a sleek design making metal racks ideal for the wine cellar. This racking option can blend well with any décor. Available in stand-alone or wall-mounted units, metal wine racks are flexible, making them suitable for wine storage spaces where space is limited.
Ultra Peg System – Innovative Wine Storage Solution for Wine Enthusiasts
Wine Cellar Specialists used the 2-bottle deep Ultra Peg system for this contemporary home wine cellar in Dallas, Texas. This type of racking holds the bottles sideways in high-quality pegs with labels facing out. This allows for easy browsing of specific wines. It eliminates the need to flip the bottles. Flipping the bottles will disturb the sediments, which can alter the taste and aroma of the wine.
Each peg, which was made from brushed aluminum, has a rubber O-ring to prevent the bottles from slipping out.
