The Significant Role of an Efficient Wine Refrigeration System in Baltimore Custom Wine Cellars 

Wine is sensitive to external factors such as heat, light, vibration, and odor. You can preserve its desirable characteristics and enhance your wine drinking experience if you provide a safe storage room for it. Correct wine storage is the main reason investing in a wine cellar is increasing in demand among wine collectors. 

Whether you are building a wine cellar for your residential property or commercial establishment in Baltimore, you have to consult an expert in wine cooling to ensure that your wine storage facility is cooled efficiently. At Harvest Custom Wine Cellars and Saunas, our team has extensive knowledge in wine cellar refrigeration.  

We offer wine cooling units manufactured by top-notch manufacturers in the United States. One of them is Wine Guardian. 

What is the Best Cooling Unit for Your Custom Wine Cellar? 

Our Wine Cooling Specialists Will Help Determine the Best Wine Cellar Refrigeration System for Your Custom Wine Cellar in Baltimore!

When building a wine cellar, there are many factors to consider. To meet all of the specific requirements (aesthetic, functional, technical, and financial) of each client, we make a careful assessment their needs.  

When choosing a wine cooling system, this process helps us determine the correct size, capacity, type, and brand of unit suitable for each project. Installing a refrigeration unit that is too small for the size of your wine cellar will not achieve the optimum conditions required for the proper aging of your wines.  

On the other hand, installing a cooling unit that is too large for your wine cellar will cause your wines to age faster. This is called accelerated aging, which affects the overall bouquet of the wines.  It is best to keep in mind that the wrong size of the climate-control system will not be able to keep the temperatures and humidity levels in the ideal range. 

Why Should You Choose to Have a Wine Guardian Refrigeration System Installed in Your Custom Wine Cellar? 

With so many types and brands of wine cooling systems available in the market today, it is easy to make a mistake in choosing a climate-control unit. We recommend the Wine Guardian wine cellar refrigeration systems because of the benefits they offer.  They are designed to provide a stable environment for your collection without compromising style.  

The founders of Wine Guardian are Larry and Mike Wetzel, who are also the founders of Air Innovations.  We, at Harvest Custom Wine Cellars and Saunas, have been using it in our installation projects for many years.  

Wine Guardian Units Have Precise Temperature and Humidity Control 

All of Wine Guardian products are designed to ensure superior performance. This is one of the reasons why their wine cellar refrigeration systems are a favorite choice in wine cellar construction projects in Baltimore. The temperature in your wine cellar must be between 55 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, and the humidity level should be within 60 to 70 percent.  Wine Guardian’s cooling units are proven and tested to provide maximum cooling efficiency both for residential and commercial applications. 

Extremely Energy Efficient and Offer a Quite Operation 

Energy efficiency is another advantage of Wine Guardian’s cooling products. You do not want to purchase a refrigeration unit that will cause your electrical bill to soar high. Moreover, they designed their cooling units with minimal to no noise at all. They want their clients to enjoy wine tasting parties with family and friends without being distracted by the noise coming from the equipment.
