Freestanding Wine Coolers
Freestanding wine coolers are designed to stand alone instead of being built into your kitchen furniture or dining room. Because freestanding wine coolers are a lot bigger than integrated wine coolers, they take up a lot more space.
These types of coolers aren’t suitable for rooms with limited space as they will take up too much space. However, they are still an option. Freestanding wine coolers are perfect for living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens.
It is best to store your freestanding wine coolers in areas with enough room that is out of the sun and offers adequate ventilation.
Integrated Wine Coolers
Integrated wine coolers are a lot smaller than freestanding wine coolers and can therefore be placed pretty much anywhere. These wine coolers can be fitted into your kitchen spaces such as shelving, wall spaces or cabinets.
It is important that when you are installing your wine cooler you allow a small space around it to allow for optimal airflow and effective ventilation. Integrated wine coolers mean that the door of your wine cooler is enclosed within your kitchen cabinets.
What to Consider When Installing Your Wine Cooler
When installing your wine cooler you must ensure there is limited to no sunlight. This is because the sun emits UV light which can damage your wine’s overall flavour and quality.
Sufficient ventilation is also crucial when installing your wine cooler. This is because the heat generated by the storage and ageing of the wine will need to be released from the exhaust system. This is to prevent the wine cooler from overheating.
Humidity is also another important factor when dealing with wine coolers. This is because humidity helps keep the cork moist. If you store your wine in an area that hasn’t got enough humidity, then this can cause the cork to dry out, therefore, exposing the wine to oxygen.
