A wine cellar cooling system consists of two components, which have to be always kept working efficiently. They play a key role in regulating the temperatures and humidity levels inside the wine room. Therefore, they should be maintained regularly to prevent wine storage issues. WhisperKOOL is one of the top brands of refrigeration systems we offer. Learn tips on how to take care of your equipment and avoid the need for a costly repair.
WhisperKOOL Wine Cellar Condenser: What is its Function and How to Prevent Costly Repair?
A wine cellar cooling system consists of two components – the evaporator and the condenser, which are both crucial in creating the ideal wine storage conditions in a wine cellar.
The condenser consists of the coils that hold the refrigerant. It cools down the water vapor and transforms it into liquid. Its compressor increases the pressure on the refrigerant, and the fan dissipates the heat outdoors.
A WhisperKOOL condenser is more prone to damage, especially when it is located outdoors. If it is not performing its function well because it is clogged or blocked by dirt or debris, you may clean it yourself. However, if your WhisperKOOL wine cooling unit is still not working as expected, you must have the condenser repaired by a professional.
When you notice that your wine refrigeration system is not working correctly, you must seek the help of an HVAC specialist like M&M Cellar Systems. Using the right type and size of wine cooling unit will safeguard your collection from wine storage problems. Moreover, it must also be installed correctly by a professional and maintained regularly. At M&M Cellar Systems, we will ensure that your prized wines are kept in a perfect wine storage environment.
We offer high-grade wine cellar cooling systems from WhisperKOOL, one of the top-notch manufacturers of climate control systems. Engineered with commercial-grade components and designed for superior performance, there is no doubt their products are widely used by contractors and builders in their residential and commercial wine cellar projects.
Without regular maintenance, you will encounter issues that may cause a significant expense for the repair or replacement of your WhisperKOOL wine refrigeration unit. To help you avoid this, we will share with you some tips. We want our clients who bought a WhisperKOOL unit to be aware of the preventive measures for condenser repair.
Keep Your WhisperKOOL Wine Cellar Condenser Clean to Avoid Costly Repair
As mentioned above, if your condenser is installed outdoors, it can accumulate dirt quickly. Dust, grime, animal hair, and leaves can clog the coils, which will make the condenser unable to dissipate heat. Cleaning the coils will prevent you from spending on the repair of your WhisperKOOL condenser. Moreover, you will experience the following benefits:
- There will be stable temperatures and humidity levels, protecting your wines from damage.
- Your WhisperKOOL wine cellar cooling unit will not be forced to work harder to achieve the ideal wine storage conditions in our wine room, preventing damage and the need for repair.
- Your energy consumption will be reduced.
How to Clean the Condenser Coils of Your WhisperKOOL Wine Cooling Unit
The condenser coils of your cooling unit should be cleaned regularly every 2 to 3 months. You can clean the coils yourself if you have the right tools. Just spray compressed air through the coils while the unit is running, or you may use a vacuum hose with a brush to remove stuck dirt.
If you do not have the tools or do not want to do the job yourself, you may hire an expert in WhisperKOOL condenser repair and maintenance in your area. At M&M Cellar Systems, we will send one of our skilled technicians to help fix the problem you are experiencing with your climate-control system.
Avail of Our Regular Preventive Maintenance Plan to Keep Your WhisperKOOL Wine Cooling Unit Condenser
We recommend taking advantage of a regular maintenance plan for your WhisperKOOL wine cooling system to keep it running efficiently and prevent a costly repair. Maintenance visits will help us discover problems with your condenser or evaporator. When minor problems are attended to immediately, you can prevent breakdowns of your system. Our team will provide an innovative solution upon finding out the cause of the problem with your wine cooling unit.
Our regular preventive maintenance includes a thorough inspection of the motor’s components, pressures, fans, and all moving parts of your wine cooling unit. We will check if the refrigerant is leaking and lubricate the motor parts as needed. When performed on a regular basis, our maintenance plan will ensure that significant problems will be prevented from damaging your equipment and prized wines.
When the condenser is located outdoors where it is exposed to external elements, we recommend having your wine cooling system serviced every six months. If it is installed inside your home or in a building, annual maintenance will do.
Fixing a split wine refrigeration system is easier compared to a self-contained unit. The condenser repair can be done onsite at a lower cost in a shorter time. On the other hand, a through the wall or self-contained unit is more complicated because it has to be dismounted and returned to the supplier for repair or replacement. Moreover, the equipment will have to be reinstalled after the repair, so service costs are usually higher with this type of wine cooling system.
