Assessment of Your Needs

One of the standard procedures before starting a project is the assessment of your needs and requirements. Skipping this step will negatively affect the functionality of your residential wine cellar.

We have to gather all the necessary information to help us determine the components that suit the size and location of your residential wine room, the available resources, as well as your budget.

After the assessment stage, we will create 3-dimensional images, which include the elevation views, room and racking dimensions, bottle capacities, and the placement of your wine cellar cooling unit in any area of your residential wine room or within the racking.

Framing the room is the first thing that master builders do before installing the wine cellar component. After that, Custom Wine Cellar Los Angeles will complete the installation of electrical ductwork before the installation of your wine cellar cooling unit.

Sealing Your Residential Wine Room: a Vital Part of Wine Cellar Cooling in Los Angeles

Another crucial step in cooling wine cellars is insulating the walls and ceiling of residential wine rooms. Moreover, adding a vapor barrier is also a requirement for creating a stable environment. At Custom Wine Cellar Los Angeles, we always make sure that the insulation and vapor barrier are installed correctly according to the technical and functional requirements of the project.

Insulating the Walls and Ceiling and Adding a Vapor Barrier

Why is room insulation so important in wine cellar cooling? Even though your wine cellar refrigeration unit is efficient and installed by a professional builder, it will not function effectively if there is a lack or poor insulation 

The purpose of insulation is to seal in the cold air inside your wine storage facility and prevent the warm air outside from entering your wine cellar. It will help the wine cellar refrigeration unit to provide maximum cooling efficiency to your wine cellar in Los Angeles.        

A lack of, or poor insulation will force your refrigeration equipment to work harder than its normal operation. It will eventually cause the breakdown of your wine cellar cooling unit. Furthermore, your energy bill will soar high, and your favorite wines will spoil.      

If you want to avoid spending a hefty amount of money, you must work with a wine cellar cooling expert like Custom Wine Cellar Los Angeles. Our team uses and recommends polyurethane closed-cell foam insulation because of the following reasons:  

  • It is reliable and effective because it can fill in even the smallest gaps 
  • It is cost-effective because it acts as both an insulator and a vapor barrier, saving you money.  

The role of the vapor barrier is to separate the colder environment in your wine cellar from the warmer conditions outside it. The absence of a vapor barrier will cause moisture build-up inside your residential wine room and trigger mold growth. It will degrade the structural integrity of the wooden components in your wine cellar, damage the corks that seal the wines, and ruin the wine labels.
