At A & W MOORE, we believe that the foundation of any great wine cellar is a superb temperature control system. In the good old days, an underground cellar might have created the ideal stable environment for wine storage, but these days it is very uncommon.
Below are a few factors to consider when building your wine cellar:
Your wine is fragile and needs to be taken care of properly. The ideal temperature is around 8°C – 14°C. Too much heat can ruin a great wine collection, which is why you should use a suitable air conditioning system to maintain the optimum temperature. In colder locations, consideration should also be given to ensuring that the room does not get too cold.
Controlling the humidity within your wine cellar is just as important as regulating the temperature. If the air in your wine cellar becomes too dry then this can affect the ability of the cork to seal in the wine. If the room is too damp, mould can form which, over time, can ruin your wine collection. The process of controlling the temperature in your wine cellar has to be executed carefully, in such a way that it does not dry the air too much.
Nobody wants a noisy, industrial monster disturbing the peace when they are trying to enjoy a fine wine. As such, all of our air conditioning systems are exceptionally quiet. Acoustic foam, extra quiet fans and highly optimised power saving features ensure that sound levels are kept to an absolute minimum. Even our highest powered units generally produce less than 47dB at just 1m from the unit.
As with all of our products, the air conditioning units we supply are built to last, with high quality components and an emphasis on efficiency. You really can trust these units to protect your wine collection for generations to come.
Keeping your wine at the optimum temperature is essential in preserving the investment you have put into your quality wine collection. We have a wide range of air conditioning options to suit all your wine cellar needs.
