Doors should be solid wood andor insulated and weather stripping is vital for an air tight seal.Glass should be double pane with a minimum of a 12" gap. Lighting should be low wattage. The Wine Cellar Refrigeration Units Wine cellar refrigeration unit types and models are usually chosen based on room size, which is usually measured in cubic feet (Length x Width x Height). Other factors to consider are the location of your wine room and the geographical aspects of your home because they can affect the temperature and humidity of your wine room. Measure the size of the room then use a thermometer and hygrometer to test the room's natural temperature and humidity.
This is the reason why you just can't place them in your usual refrigerator, for a regular fridge would be at around 2 degrees Celsius while your freezer would give out 0 degrees Celsius in temperature to freeze your waters to form ice cubes. If you are very much particular in serving your wine in its best shape, then you should be able to install wine cellar cooling units in your cellar. You will definitely be convinced that the best wine that you have there is really the best when served at the right temperature.
Home - or even commercial - refrigeration equipment is built to cool food quickly to prevent it spoiling. This is achieved by blasting cold air until the desired temperature is reached. Then a cycle kicks in whereby once the set temperature is reached, the refrigerator shuts off. When the temperature rises to a pre-determined point, cold air is again blasted. This continuous fluctuating temperature cycle isn't good for your wines.
Standard refrigeration equipment is designed not only to cool but also to remove moisture. Wine gives off neither heat nor moisture so you end up with an environment that's way too dry for wine. This will cause wine corks to shrink, which will allow air to get in. Once the air is in contact with your wine the irreversible process of oxidation begins and your wine is ruined! Vibration can also be an issue with a home refrigerator. Wine requires a calm vibration-free environment in which to develop so any vibration will eventually destroy a fine wine.
