Innovative Refrigeration System Installed in Custom Wine Cabinets in Laguna Beach
David Gype, the owner of Arctic Metalworks Inc., together with his team of HVAC technicians recently had the opportunity to work on a challenging project in Laguna Beach, California. Four gorgeous custom wine cabinets in a luxurious home remodel had very limited space to vent air in and out. David and his team had to determine the perfect refrigeration system that would allow them to use extra thin ducting. Find out what type of cooling equipment the team used for this project.
Determining the Appropriate Cooling System for the Custom Wine Cabinets in Laguna Beach, California
There are many types of structures that can store wines in the ideal climate-controlled environment. These storage spaces differ in requirements, which means that each one needs a different kind of refrigeration unit. An HVAC specialist can correctly determine the most appropriate cooling equipment for any wine storage room.
Dependable Cooling Equipment for Smaller Types of Wine Storage Structures
David and his team at Arctic Metalworks Inc. recently worked with a client who owns a luxurious oceanfront home in Three Arch Bay Community, located in Laguna Beach, California. The wine room in the client’s house has four beautiful custom wine cabinets that extend from the ceiling to the floor. These storage structures needed to have a refrigeration system installed.
The reach-in style custom cabinets were sealed airtight by a glass door. There was very limited space to vent air in and out. The challenge for David and his team of HVAC technicians was to find the most appropriate wine cooling equipment that would allow them to use extra thin ducting.
Refrigeration System of Choice: Unico High Static Pressure Forced Air Unit
The cooling experts recommended that the most suitable wine cooling equipment for the Laguna Beach custom cabinets was a ducted split type system. In this kind of refrigeration setup, the unit is placed in a separate room, and cool air is coursed through ducts into the storage structure.
David and his team of specialists mounted a Unico High Static Pressure Forced Air Unit (FAU), which is a type of equipment that utilizes high static pressure. This special feature means that the technicians can use smaller types of conduits, which are appropriate for small spaces.
Typically, Forced Air Units can use a minimum of six inches in duct size. Standard FAUs do not have conduits smaller than that measurement. But, with the particular Unico cooling equipment that the HVAC experts installed, two-inch ducting can be used. This is because the refrigeration unit has a built-in high static fan that can boost the supply of pressure. The team from Arctic Metalworks Inc. utilized eight pieces of two-inch ducts. Two ducts were assigned to each cabinet, and these conduits exchanged cool and warm air to and from the storage space. The conduits were small enough to reach the cabinet’s very tight areas.
The two-inch ducts used by the HVAC specialists are made of aluminum flex, instead of a polystyrene type of barrier. Aluminum flex is a durable material that does not easily tear or leak. The client is pleased with the outcome of the project because all of the four custom wine cabinets are being cooled efficiently, quietly, and effectively.
