How do wine coolers maintain their temperature?

Wine coolers use a variety of methods to maintain their temperature. Some wine coolers use natures own cooling power, some electrical power, some use thermoelectric cooling, while others use compressors. Thermoelectric coolers are quiet and energy-efficient, making them a good choice for those who want to save money on their electric bill. Compressor-based coolers are more expensive, but they are also more powerful and can cool your many bottles of wine more quickly.

What is the process through which electric wine chillers function?

Electric wine chillers work by using either thermoelectric cooling or compressors. Thermoelectric coolers use electricity to create a temperature difference between the inside and outside of the cooler. This temperature difference is then used to cool the wine. Compressor-based coolers use compressors to circulate refrigerant through the cooler. This refrigerant absorbs heat from the wine and transfers it to the air outside of the cooler.

 

How does insulation affect a wine chiller's performance?

Insulation is vital for keeping your wine cool. Different size coolers will insulate in different ways. Larger coolers will need walled insulation all round. Smaller coolers like the Coolenator are made our of super insulated material.
