How to Keep Your Wine at the Ideal Temperature
Well, you have invested a lot of money in a home winery, you have chosen the perfect cooling device and design. But somehow, the bottle of wine you opened last night was warm. Perhaps, there are many questions now in your mind. But the main one is: “How do I have to store wine at home properly?” One way to cool your bottles down is by installing a wine cooler. Here, you can see some wise tips provided by a proficient residential appliance contractor:
Once that precious liquid goes into a bottle, you have to protect it by maintaining the right temperature. The ideal option for you is to keep a steady temperature all-year-round. As you can guess, heat is enemy number one for wine. If it gets too warm, there might be changes in the flavor and aroma. The optimal temperature should be between 45 and 65 degrees F. Keeping those bottles in a standard refrigerator could be an option for some families but they don’t have to be kept too cold.
Buying a wine cooler is an option for many avid wine collectors. Wine coolers can be placed in an area that is dark and cool, a basement, for example. Keeping your wine cooler in a place away from heat and direct sunlight will also help you keep your energy bills down. Every wine cellar repair technician will tell you that there are a few main problems and failures that could occur to your device.
A comprehensive inspection encompasses several basic components, such as the thermostat, fans, condensers, evaporators, door seals, etc. If your cooler won’t turn on at all, you have to check for faulty fuses, tripped breakers, or loose power cords. If you don’t feel that the appliance is keeping a cool temperature, depending on its model, it could be due to thermostat issues, condenser or evaporator damage. Is your wine cooler making a lot of noise? If you hear loud vibrating noises, you have to check for dirty door seals or improperly positioned shelves.
