Ensuring your wine collection ages properly is a priority for every collector, and the environment in which that collection is aging in will play a prominent role in the process. Whether you are storing your wine in a cellar or a room in your house, it's important to properly maintain the environment in which your wine collection resides. This includes not only the temperature of the room, but also the humidity levels.
Wine cellar cooling units are designed to help you regulate the environment of your wine room or cellar. And self-contained cooling units are one of the most popular types out there. These cellar coolers provide wine lovers with everything they need to store their wine in a temperature and humidity controlled environment. Self-contained cooling systems are notoriously quiet, and multiple exhaust options allow you to install your unit as you please. Cooling systems come in a variety of sizes and are perfect for both residential and commercial wine storage.
Why You Need a Self-Contained Cooling Unit
Without the need for ductwork or refrigeration lines, self-contained cooling units are relatively easy to install and operate. The external temperature-control function allows you to easily modify the temperature and humidity inside your wine room at your convenience. This ensures that your wine remains in an optimal aging condition, protected from external contamination, harmful light and extreme temperatures. Unlike other types of cellar cooling systems, self-contained units contain evaporators that allow them to maintain the perfect humidity level inside your room. Some even boast an alarm system that will notify you if the temperature deviates from where you want it to be. Defrost functions allow you to easily maintain these cooling units by eliminating frost with just a few touches of a button—all while enhancing the systems’ longevity.
If you’re concerned about noise, rest assured that the vast majority of self-contained cellar cooling units offer whisper-quiet operation. This means your cooling system will be suitable for residential use, and you don't have to worry about excessive noise or a distracting hum of another appliance. Removable grills allow you to easily clean your unit, ensuring that you can easily provide the optimal aging climate for your wine collection for many years to come.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
