Most people don’t realize how often the temperature and humidity changes in a room from day to day and how difficult it can be to keep your wines in an optimal environment. For wine, the ideal humidity ranges from 50% to 70%. It’s especially important to keep your wine within this range mostly for the health of the cork. If your storage cellar is too dry, the cork can also become dry. A crumbly or shrunken cork is not something the ardent wine collector wants to experience. On the other side, if the cellar is too humid, your corks could become moldy, which leads to contamination.
Split Cooling versus Self-Contained Cooling: Self-contained systems are less expensive and simple to install but possible downsides include the noise it produces during normal operation and a shorter life span (around 5 to 6 years) compared to a split cooling system. The availability of a suitable adjacent room for ventilation can also be a factor but this could be solved by using air ducts to control where the warm air can be vented. One such wine cellar cooling system that uses this method is the Cellarmate Self-Contained System. Of course, there will be additional costs depending on the circumstances surrounding the installation.
