This video explains why homeowners should hire a wine cellar cooling expert to perform a regular maintenance checkup on their wine storage refrigeration system. 

The Importance of a Wine Cellar Cooling Unit Maintenance Plan

Below is the transcript of the video:

These systems are air cool. A lot of people don’t understand that they need to be maintained. Any type, anything is air cool or moves air in any way and uses air to remove heat is going to get dirty. There’s no doubt about it. It’s going to die from lack of maintenance if it’s not done. You’re energy consumption would just double very quickly just by having a low Freon charge, because the system would just run continuously trying to reach temperature. That Freon charged is very important.
You know when these compressors the motor inside is enclosed inside of a hermatic pot, so we can’t get to any type of air. So any type of electric motor has to have a cooling system of some kind or they will eventually burn out always. So every electric motor has a cooling system built into it, even if you and I don’t know about it, it’s there. So the way these compressor motors are cooled is by return gas. And the only way you’re going to get returned gas is if the system is full of Freon allowing this to happen. Once they get low in Freon, they no longer get that return gas, the pressure motor will run hot until it eventually dies. So that’s a real good point right there. Making sure that Freon charge is full at all times. And also of course making sure there’s no leak. We also find all of our leaks. We find the leak and give the option to repair it or give the option to replace the part that needs to be replaced.
