Every wine lover's nightmare
Wine fans know that wine needs to be stored at proper temperatures so the wine doesn't go bad. Some of us even buy chilling units to cool our wine cellars. Ours failed this weekend. Not a total failure, since it will still blow room temperature air, but it's definitely not cooling the cellar. My one gripe about the manufacturer (and this may extend to other manufacturers) is that it doesn't make any units that are the same size. This particular unit required that a hole be cut in the wall so the unit could be inserted in. In theory, I could just replace it, but all of the current options are much smaller, so I'd either have to figure out how to plug the hole or leave the hole open--not very efficient. I'm all for improvements in technology that result in smaller devices, but manufacturers would be wise to consider making some sort of unit that would allow a smaller unit to be retrofit into the larger opening in the wall. It would save a lot of consumers a lot of time and frustration. So, I've contacted a family member who is an HVAC contractor. I'm hopeful that he'll be able to provide some needed repair services. Otherwise, we're going to be drinking an awful lot of wine over the next few weeks!
