How fast should my wine cellar cooling unit change temperatures?

Temperature & Timing

Consistency is a vital element of wine storage. Wine cellar cooling units are particularly helpful for keeping temperatures even in your cellar. However, your wine cellar cooling unit should not cause the balance of humidity and temperature to fluctuate radically or quickly. (This is why air conditioners are not ideal for wine cellars; they tend to drop the temperature too quickly.) Good systems for wine cooling maintain even adjustments in temperature and humidity, allowing your wine the time to adjust as well.
