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.
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.
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.
There are a few types of wine cellar cooling units to consider when choosing the right one for your cellar. It’s important to do a bit of research and assessment of your cellar before picking out which cooling unit to maintain perfect humidity and temperature for your collection. Self-Contained; A self-contained or through-the-wall cooling unit stands alone and works well in wine cabinets and some wine rooms. It’s important that these units have sufficient ventilation to ensure they keep the area at your desired temperatures. The self-contained cooling unit will have the evaporator and condenser housed together.
