Wine Storage Coolers - Tips to Consider When Buying a Wine Cooler

By: Bob Cummins

Wine storage coolers for the home are becoming more and more popular these days. Whether you prefer a traditional wine storage cooler for your wine or one of the more technologically advanced refrigeration systems, there are a few simple things to keep in mind when shopping for one of these units. Here are a few tips to help you when looking for a wine cooler unit. Almost all new homes either include or offer as an option a wine cooler fridge for the kitchen, in the bar or somewhere else in the home. There are plenty of options available when buying a refrigeration unit like this for your wines. You should consider buying one that has a slightly larger capacity then your initial needs so that you can grow your wine collection. Look for a wine storage cooler that has a good insulation rating and also, specially treated glass helps protect the wine from light and maintain constant internal temperatures. This is especially important if the fridge is going to be placed in an area were temperatures fluctuate. Another feature to look for in a cooler is humidity control. This feature helps to keep air circulating and will reduce mold and mildew from forming in the unit. Other features worth noting that are available on some units would be an integrated door lock which would protect your wines and adjustable/removable racks. With adjustable racks it makes it easy to reconfigure the storage space so you can fit larger bottles of wine. Also the fact you can remove the racks makes easy to clean the unit. Other high end wine storage coolers might have a dual temperature controller which gives you the ability to independently control temperature zones allowing chilling of red and white wines simultaneously. Just about everything that is wine related is increasing in popularity, so companys that are manufacturing wine coolers today are offering more and more options for the consumer. There is a huge selection of refrigeration units available, they range in many different sizes and styles which will meet just about any wine enthusiasts needs and budget.
