Who doesn’t love having their favorite bottle of wine at their fingertip and at the right temperature? Everyone does! With the recent technological advancement, it is little wonder that it took so long for dedicated wine coolers to trend. As most wine lovers would attest, wine is best enjoyed at the right temperature and for this reason, wine coolers were designed.
Wine coolers are becoming increasingly in vogue especially among wine lovers living in small spaces. Their portable design ensures they can contain some wine bottles and be fitted comfortably into small spaces while offering immense value to owners, regardless of the ambient temperature.
Benefits of using wine coolers
- Optimum temperature: Wine coolers were designed via adaptations from refrigerators and wine cellars. When compared to the refrigerator, wine coolers store wine at optimum temperature to ensure it retains its taste and aroma that can be easily lost during refrigeration. Also, in contrast to the wine cellars, wine coolers make use of humidity, temperature and stability controls while ensuring easy access to wine bottles.
- Cost effective: Given their smaller sizes, wine coolers are relatively inexpensive when compared to refrigerators as their primary purpose is to store bottles. Also, due to their lack of versatility as is seen in refrigerators, wine coolers cost way less than their refrigerator equivalent. Additionally, because wine cellars require adequate space, wine coolers stand heads and shoulder above them in cost saving as they require no additional space or installation workmanship.
- Eco-friendly: In line with the current trends in environmental responsibility and reduced footprints in refrigeration, wine coolers have a thermoelectric variation that saves energy by eliminating the use of compressors. Also, in the place of a condenser or heat exchangers, wine coolers make use of metal rods in exchanging heat with the atmosphere.
Owning a wine cooler is logical to most wine enthusiasts as it offers these benefits and others such as lowered maintenance and running cost in comparison to traditional refrigerators.
