Wine Cellar Refrigeration Units California Installation by Arctic Metalworks & Coastal Custom Wine Cellars
Arctic Metalworks is the leading manufacturer and provider of commercial grade wine cellar refrigeration units California in the wine cellar industry. Established in 1962, this family owned and operated company started out as a builder of custom refrigeration systems, and eventually diversified their business line to include wine cellar construction and renovation, and custom wine rack making.
As the wine cellar refrigeration specialists of Southern California, Arctic Metalworks strive to provide the best in custom wine cellar construction and top quality wine cellar refrigeration units, as demonstrated by their completed cooling system installation projects over the years. They manufacture wine cellar refrigeration units California that suit the size of the wine room and address the cooling needs of clients.
Here are several of their recently finished refrigerated wine cellars projects in the California state. Arctic Metalworks collaborated with Coastal Custom Wine Cellars in these projects. The latter handled design and construction, while the former supplied the proper climate control systems. The type of wine cellar refrigeration units used to achieve a balanced wine storage temperature was a commercial grade, ductless split refrigeration system.
Ductless split climate control systems offer flexible installation options with aesthetic considerations. A split cooling system consists of an evaporator and condensing unit. The split feature allows the heat generating part of the equipment (condensing unit) to be placed in a remote area, such as the backyard, garage, or attic. Copper tubing and electrical wiring are used to connect the condensing unit to the evaporator unit, which is usually installed inside or near refrigerated wine cellars.
Split, non-ducted wine cellar refrigeration units are not only efficient in maintaining the best wine storage temperature, but also in providing quiet and unobtrusive operation that suits aging wines well.
Aliso Viejo Refrigerated Wine Cellars Project
For this wine cellar refrigeration units California installation project in Aliso Viejo, Arctic Metalworks installed a split refrigeration system. The evaporator unit was placed just above the entryway to the residential wine cellar, while the compressor was placed in the yard at the side of the house. To keep the evaporator unit out of sight, it was covered with an operable, louvered grill cover, constructed from All Heart Redwood.
Coto de Caza Orange County California Project
To maintain the ideal wine storage temperature in this custom wine room in Coto de Caza Orange County, California, the Arctic team built and installed a ductless split refrigeration unit. For a whisper-quiet and non-obtrusive operation, the compressor was placed outdoors on the rooftop. The refrigeration system’s evaporator was installed in the wine room and was concealed in a lattice style grill box and cover made out of Mahogany.
Newport Coast Beach California Wine Cellar Refrigeration Units
In this particular refrigerated wine cellars installation project in Newport Coast Beach, California, Arctic Metalworks mounted the evaporator unit within the racking frame on the right side wall. The cooling system is concealed with a hinged, louvered panel cover, built from the same material as the wine storage and display racks.
The cooling system’s evaporator unit is placed inside the wine cellar because it does generate noise and heat. A specially constructed grill cover is used to cover the equipment, to keep it hidden from view and thereby maintain room aesthetics. The grill is made from the same wood species as the wine racking solutions, as this creates a beautiful and seamless appearance. Additionally, the panel cover is designed with a hinge to provide flexibility for cleaning and maintenance in the future.
