Stunning Custom Traditional Wine Cellar Revamps Home Storage Space in San Antonio
The task of moving a wine collection can seem daunting. Imagine relocating to San Antonio, Texas from San Francisco, California with around 1,100 bottles. You will have to store all of that wine somewhere!
For the Payne family, that’s just what happened when they made the move from California to Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas. After having collected wines as a hobby for the past 10 years their collection is quite expansive. Ranging from Napa Cabernets to even a few French wines.
The Vital Importance of Proper Insulation and Vapor Barriers
In the often hot and humid climate associated with Texas, it is crucial to create the right environment for your wine collection.
Before the cooling unit can be installed into a custom wine cellar, the room will need to be insulated. With this project, all of the existing drywall in the cellar on the ceiling and the walls had to be removed. The insulation and vapor barrier could then be installed.
Well-insulated wine cellars help achieve the correct temperature and climate of the room. This initial step will help the cooling unit work more efficiently.
Essential Elements for all Custom Traditional Wine Cellars
When adding custom wine cellars to your home it is important to keep in mind that the atmosphere of the room is just right. Now that the family resides in a more humid climate, it was very important that the right cooling unit was installed for their wine collection.
For the San Antonio project, a Wine Guardian cooling system was selected to preserve the wine. This unit is a half ton all in one system that has been ducted into the space. It exhausts the hot air into the atmosphere outside of the home.
When it comes to custom wine cellars, the refrigeration system exists for more than just keeping the room at a set temperature. The cooling system will also help control the humidity levels. This aids in keeping the room in perfect condition for these wonderful wines.
