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.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
