Investing in a residential or commercial wine cellar allows you to enjoy wine at its best, at the perfect temperature, whenever you desire. While these are excellent investments for the home, they are large appliances that require routine care and preventative maintenance. At Innovative, we encourage you to understand the maintenance and care your wine cellar needs and allow us to help keep your system operating at its best.

Tasks You Should Perform

There are several routine steps you can take to keep your wine cellar properly maintained. These simple tasks help minimize the risk of buildup and costly repairs:

  • Wipe down all door seals regularly. Small particles can cause inconsistencies in function and lead to tears.
  • Keep the space under and behind the unit clear of dirt and debris. This can block vents or limit the function of the fan.
  • Ensure the interior remains clean and dry to prevent mold and bacteria buildup.
  • Set the thermostat and use programming features to maintain the proper temperature for your wine.
  • Calibrate the system according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Be sure to read the owner’s manual if you haven’t done so.

These steps are a good start for ensuring your system operates properly. However, most systems need more than routine cleaning and upkeep. To ensure your wine cellar continues to function well, you should follow additional maintenance strategies.

Professional Inspections of a Wine Cellar

Like your other refrigeration systems, it’s essential to have your wine cellar inspected annually by a licensed technician. This important maintenance step should include:

  • Visual inspection of all working components
  • Inspection of the motor and all mechanical components to ensure proper function
  • Inspection and tightening of all electrical connections
  • Removal and cleaning of the ventilation systems within the machine
  • Testing and reprogramming of the thermostat as needed
  • Checking for any leaks from hoses

These are crucial tasks for your licensed technician. They will also conduct a thorough review of all preventative maintenance tasks required by the manufacturer. This comprehensive approach helps extend the life of your system. Call Innovative Mechanical , LLC today to schedule an appointment.

Know When to Reach Out for Help with Your Wine Cellar

Proper maintenance of your wine cellar also involves knowing when to call a professional for help and repairs. Acting quickly when you notice a problem can minimize costly downtime and prevent further damage. Be vigilant for the following signs and contact us as soon as possible if you observe any of them:

  • Power Issues: If the system is not getting power, and you’ve already checked the breakers, there may be an electrical issue that needs professional repair.
  • Pooling Water: If you notice water pooling under the system, pull it away from the wall, clean the drain, and put it back. If the problem persists, call us for repairs.
  • Unusual Noises: If the system operates but sounds loud or like a fan belt is broken, contact us immediately for an inspection and repair.
  • Inconsistent Cooling: If your wine is not consistently cooled, it may indicate a need for inspection and repair, depending on the underlying cause.
  • Mold Development: If you see mold inside or around the system and cannot find the source of a moisture leak, reach out for our guidance.
  • Continuous Operation: If the wine cooler is constantly running and driving up your energy bills, it’s time for a professional evaluation.

Most wine cellars are easy to maintain if you follow the manufacturer’s directions and preventative measures, which can vary.
