Avoid Home Refrigeration To Store Wine. A standard home refrigerator makes a poor wine cooling solution for several reasons. It is designed specifically to store and look after food products, not to store wines. An atmosphere that works well for meat and vegetables is far too cold and dry for your expensive wine. The preferred temperature for home refrigeration is somewhere between 35ºF and 38ºF (1.7 to 3.3ºC)
Brands to Know About: Before you buy the first wine cellar cooling unit you come across, it’s wise to browse through the various brands and systems available to you. Three of the most reputable brands include Breezeaire, Wine-Mate and CellarPro. Within these three brands, there are many different types, sizes and features available to help you find the best unit for your wine collection. Some of units have a temperature sensor located behind the return air grills that create a carefully controlled environment.
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.
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.
