CHOOSING A COOLING SYSTEM
Step 1. Select The Cooling Capacity
You may select a cooling system using the cubic feet or bottle capacity of the wine cabinets or rooms. The following table gives the guidance based on 55°F air temperature and 75°F environmental temperature with R11 insulation and no glass.

Up to 90 cu ft
Up to 200 cu ft
Up to 650 cu ft
Up to 1000 cu ft
Up to 1500 cu ft
Up to 2000 cu ft
Use Load Calculation
If you need a precise selection, you may use the heat load calculation to determine the proper cooling unit. Both oversize and undersize will affect adversely your wine storage.
