Wine lovers know that keeping their wine at just the right temperature can make all the difference when it comes to preserving the aroma and tastes of the beverage they best love. Wine coolers are an affordable way to store wine safely, while most can’t afford to dig an actual wine cellar below their home, in the ideal temperature range recommended by experts that’s why wine coolers (sometimes called wine chillers or wine refrigerators) have become such a popular accessory and gift item. Aside from size (“Thermoelectric” and “compressor” refer to the technology used to cool down the cabinet.) the most important decision you have to make is whether you want a thermoelectric wine cooler or a compressor wine cooler. And in this article we’ll outline them all to help you make the best decision when you make a purchase each type of technology has its advantages and disadvantages) and configuration (single or dual zone storage?

How Compressor Wine Coolers Work

A vapor compression refrigeration system (which is the same technology used for air conditioners) relies on a coolant gas (a refrigerant) to carry heat from inside the unit and expel it externally How Compressor Wine Coolers Work.

A compressor wine cooler works pretty much like a standard refrigerator works, except on a smaller scale, using the vapor compression cycle to remove heat from the interior of the cabinet.

In most wine coolers, which then radiate cold air into the cabinet’s interior, lowering the temperature the cold air produced by the evaporator is passed through an aluminum panel. Like New Air’s built-in wine coolers, also use fans to circulate the air, to ensure more even temperatures throughout some models

Compressor coolers can get much colder than thermoelectric coolers.

Most thermoelectric coolers won’t cool below about 50°F, which means you won’t be able to achieve proper serving temperatures for Champagne or other sparkling wines. In addition, thermoelectric coolers aren’t recommended for use in spaces that get warmer than 80°. This is because the Peltier device is not capable of great heat flux, and can really only lower the temperature about 20 degrees. If your house is a comfortable 72°F, reaching 55°F in your wine cooler (the recommended storage temperature for all wines) won’t be a problem. But when the thermostat begins to rise, you’ll have a harder time maintaining that target temperature.

Compressor coolers, on the other hand can reach temperatures in the 30s and have no problem reaching the coldest temperatures any time of year.

Thermoelectric coolers operate silently and vibration free.

These units are not the best choice if you’re looking for something to use in a quiet living space And a refrigerator’s compressor can be very noisy when it is in operation is a refrigerator, a compressor cooler,

of course. The fans installed in the cabinet might make a faint hum if there is some obstruction or if the cooler is not level, but otherwise the cooler will operate unobtrusively in any living environment. In addition, the lack of moving parts means there is virtually no vibration throughout the cooler. You won’t have to worry about continual shaking that can disturb the sediments in the bottle, if you’re aging wine long-term, and potentially ruin the flavor. In fact, level surface there should be no noise whatsoever if the cooler is installed properly on a firm. These wine coolers operate almost silently because there are no moving parts in a thermoelectric cooling system.

Choosing the Right Cooler

So how do you choose between one type of wine cooler and the other? Ultimately, it’s a matter of personal preference, budget and the particular demands of your wine collection.

Compressor coolers:

  • Less expensive to operate
  • Reach colder temperatures
  • Cool consistently in warm climates
  • Provide more storage room

Thermoelectric coolers:

  • Less expensive to purchase
  • Quiet and vibration free
  • Available in small sizes
  • Environmentally friendly

It’s up to you to weigh the advantages and disadvantages and make the best choice for you. If you need help, our customer service reps are here to provide assistance whenever you need it.
