I’m looking for advice about temperature control for a small cellar I’m putting together.
I have recently moved into a top floor flat in Glasgow. In past accommodation I’ve been fortunate enough to have cellar space for my collection of up to 500 bottles, but here I need to convert a large cupboard into a cellar.
I need a system that will maintain 10-13 degree C in quite a small space: 1.2 x 1.2 x 3 cubic metres. It needs to be installed on the interior. There is no access to the exterior space which is, in any case, a shared staircase so I cannot have a unit outside the cellar. There is a small window 40cm x 50cm near the top of the cupboard which I hope will provide a vent.
I’ve found systems like “Wineguardian” which will certainly do the job but is very expensive (probably because it has the word “wine” in its title!) and I’m wondering if anyone else has found a system with similar capacity that will do the same job (with fewer bells and whistles as well).
All suggestions are welcome.
