How to Resolve the Humidity: First step should be the installation of a vapor barrier around the entire room. A minimum of 4 mil plastic is recommended with seams overlapped and taped. The vapor barrier is installed on the outside (or warm side) of the cellar insulation. This is to prevent condensation from forming on the vapor barrier, potentially causing mold. A cooling unit alone cannot add moisture or humidify cellar air. It needs a humidifier to do so. The best option is a humidifier integrated into a cooling unit so it operates and distributes the moisture evenly in the re-circulating air. However, a free-standing humidifier can also be installed in conjunction with a cooling unit as long as this is controlled by a high-quality wall-mounted thermostat.
This allows them to quietly cool the air without removing the essential moisture the corks need. Only excess moisture is removed, maintaining an appropriate, relative humidity. Some units have audible and visual alarms to alert you about whether the temperature inside the cellar is too warm or too cold. It’s important to find the wine cellar cooling unit that best fits your collection, your home, and your budget. If you’re truly invested in your wine, it only makes sense to invest in your wine’s preservation.
