Calculating Thermal Load for your wine cellar can be very difficult.

Here are some of the main points to look at when figuring out Thermal Load on your Wine Room:

  • What is the Temperature and Humidity around the cellar?
  • What is the R value of the insulation?
  • What is your desired wine storage temperature?
  • Do you have any glass? How much? Single or Dual pane?
  • Are any walls exposed to the exterior and have a high heat load?
  • Does the lighting in the wine cellar generate any heat?
  • What type of cooling system will you be using?
  • How many Bottles are you storing?
  • Is it residential or commercial? How often will the door be opened?

All of this and more play a part on the thermal load of your wine cellar.
