    Step 6: Keeping air quality optimal

    Step 6: Keeping air quality optimal

    The air quality in a wine cooler can affect the quality of wine. It is therefore important to ensure that the air quality is good. This means that in addition to sufficient fresh air, the humidity must also be ok. To ensure optimal air quality, some wine coolers are equipped with the following functions:

    Air circulation

    Wine 'breathes' through the cork of the bottle. If there is an unpleasant smell in the wine climate closet, it will also affect the wine. That's why many wine climate cabinets have a ventilation system that provides sufficient fresh air. This way your wine stays in perfect condition!

    Carbon filter

    Some wine coolers are equipped with an active carbon filter. The filter system keeps the air in the wine cooler fresh. This prevents unpleasant odors and keeps your wine in perfect condition! An active carbon filter is only possible if cooling is carried out by means of a compressor.

    Humidity control

    In addition to sufficient fresh air, the humidity is also important and affects the wine. It is important to keep the cork constantly moist, because only then will the bottle remain hermetically sealed. Humidity control ensures that the humidity level of the air is maintained. An air humidity around 65% is ideal. If the humidity is too low (below 55%) the cork dries out. A dehydrated cork can not only break down quickly, it also allows oxygen to reach the wine. This causes the wine to oxidize, causing the taste to deteriorate rapidly. If the humidity is too high (above 80%) then the cork becomes too humid and can become mouldy. In addition, the label can come off after a while.
