Split system conditioning equipment comprises of two components. An evaporator in or near the cellar room and a condensing unit which is normally mounted on the outside of a building, on the wall or on the ground. It can be surrounded by fencing or trellis, so long as the airflow around it is not impeded. The evaporator and condenser are connected by two small copper pipes. The maximum distance between the condensing unit and evaporator is 20m but this can be extended after consultation with us as to the precise requirements.
All our split-systems feature noise suppression and active humidity control (water supply required).
For customers who do not wish to see the evaporator unit, we use specially adapted units which can be concealed in ceiling voids or within furniture inside the cellar, so all that is visible are two decorative grills. There are 4 different types of evaporator:-
– The evaporator is attached to the ceiling or wall and is in full view.
– The evaporator is housed in a nearby room or space and ducted through to two grills on the ceiling or wall.
– The evaporator is housed inside the cellar and concealed with a decorative surround
– The evaporator is housed inside a cabinet.
The condensing unit is always located outdoors in order for the unit to ventilate properly. For residential installations we advocate incorporating option BNS which reduces the noise emitted from the condensing unit.
THE WINE SUPERVISOR
The Wine Supervisor is a system which allows the parameters of the conditioning equipment to be viewed and set from a remote location, so you can keep an eye on your cellar’s temperature and humidity.
