Did Somebody Mention Wine?

Thinking about a wine cellar for your home or business?  There are three very important considerations when building a wine cellar—light, humidity and wine cellar temperature. Dark cool places are a friend to wine.  Your wine cellar should be dark to protect your collection from UV rays (aka direct sunlight) as it destroys important organic compounds found in wine that contributes to the distinctive taste, aroma and structure of the wine. Exposing your wine to UV rays will result in wine deterioration. (I know, just the phrase is hard to hear.)

You wine cellar should have moderate humidity level to prevent wine from evaporating faster than the normal rate. However, the most important consideration of all would be the temperature of the wine cellar. Consider building an underground wine cellar because it is generally dark, damp, cool and vibration-free. If a physical cellar isn’t possible or practical, a well-insulated room that can maintain temperatures is the next best bet.

Keep in mind the ideal storage temperature for different wines:

• Light red wine should be stored at 55 degrees F.

• White, rose, blush and dry wines should be stored at 46–57 degrees F.

• Deep red wine should be stored at 59–66 degrees F.

• Sparkling wine and champagne should be stored at 43–47 degrees F.

Wine Cellar Cooling Units vs. Traditional Air Conditioning Units

• It is best to use a wine cooling system rather than a traditional air conditioning unit because the latter tends to cause a quick drop in temperature. Sudden drops in temperature may cause some unfavorable results in the wine’s aging process.

• Room air conditioning units and refrigeration units tend to lower the humidity of the environment. This can result in higher ullage volume especially in aging wines when the cork tends to lose air tightness over time.

• A temperature display can be easily integrated with the wine cooling system. Temperature and humidity can be easily monitored without the need to enter the wine cellar.

Additionally, adjustments in temperature are quickly carried out with the integration of the temperature display to the wine cellar cooling unit.

When building a wine cellar, the most important thing to consider is the health of your wine rather than the aesthetics of your wine cellar. Only a proper wine cellar cooling unit can provide the right wine cellar temperature and humidity levels needed to produce fine wines. Additionally, hiring a professional wine cellar contractor is advised because they are more knowledgeable with proper insulation, humidification and vapor barriers required for properly controlled environment for your wines.

Our AC tech was Amer Khudher he was very professional. He spent an hour cleaning out our old AC unit and tried to get us the best deal. Amer spent over 3 hours diagnosing the problem that we are now waiting on a part for. Outstanding workmanship and professionalism from Amer Khudher, despite how hot the working conditions on a roof in the summer can be. I appreciate the compassion he showed my family and I! Great job Amer!

6/18/21 Danny came out to service my 2 A/C units. He was polite, courteous and thorough. So happy I have their maintenance program and catch small issues before potential big problems. Had to replace a capacitor which is not unusual and save me bigger headaches. Thanks Danny! I lika Hobaica!Had RL come out for my semi annual checkup of my system. He was on time, friendly and considerate of my home. Fortunately, I got a clean bill of health. I trust them to be honest and fair. What more could you ask for?

Finally had to replace the old water heater. Scott D. was out a few weeks prior to assess the heater. He was thorough and honest about the current condition of the system. I deferred the replacement until company left then immediately called Hobaicas back and had Scott replace the water heater. They were able to schedule me for the very next day and Scott had the job done quickly and cleanly. Pushing thru the AZ heat reamining courteous and professional all the way. Once again Hobaicas come to the rescue.Great service as always. Friendly, courteous and quick. Always great to deal with anybody for any reason at Hobaicas.

Huge THANK YOU to your company and to your service tech, Justin D! When I called, they were not sure they could get someone out the same day. Ethan called me back to let me know he was going to make it happen! After a long, hot day in 118 degree weather, Justin D arrived with a cheerful and positive demeanor. He went right to work and fixed our air! You would have never known he had been working in this heat all day! I felt like his first customer of the day! He was polite and professional and just gave us the best customer service! Hard to find these days! I just can't tell you how much I appreciate how kind he was. It was hot and stressful thinking about how to get the air fixed - Justin's bright smile and professionalism made it all ok! Thank you!
