Insulating Wine Cellar

If a climate control cooling unit is going to be used, you will need to insulate. The R factor or thickness of insulation is determined by the thickness of the walls and ceiling. For example, fiberglass insulation of R13 is designed to be used in a 2x4 wall. R19 is used in a 2.6 wall. It is important to use the correct insulation for the wall thickness.

R13 is a recommended minimum for walls. R19-R30 for ceiling. Fiberglass or Rigid Foam is typically used. Insulation is important to keep temperature constant.
