In this article, we’re going to be discussing what exactly a large wine cooler is.
So without further ado, talk wine fridges!
What is a large wine fridge?
Wine collectors, connoisseurs, and sommeliers, for example, who often have wines worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, must store their wines properly. And therefore they opt for large units.
Additionally, large wine fridges are often used in commercial environments, such as restaurants, bars, and nightclubs to store and chill their large amount of wine bottles.
The cooling unit is essentially a wine cellar, not only to keep the bottles safe and cool for a long time, but also to protect the wine from temperature changes, vibration, and UV light, all of which can harm and degrade the wine’s quality.
Large wine coolers come in a variety of shapes, sizes, designs, and functions. Some have a single-zone cooling system, while others have dual temperature zones. Some feature digital temperature control, and others have LED inside lighting.
Large wine refrigerators almost always have compressor-based cooling systems, as thermoelectric-powered systems are simply not powerful enough to cool such a large wine cabinet effectively. Since compressor systems have moving parts, they’re louder than thermoelectric ones when in operation.
