Wine fridge in vacation home

saje11 | Dec 4, 201108:03 AM

We are remodeling a home we occupy maybe three months a year. Eventually (can't come soon enough!) we plan to live there full time. Our wine collection while there is usually small and seasonal.

As part of the remodel we considered having a wine fridge. built in. After reading about the different brands, models etc., of built in wine coolers, chillers, refrigerators, I came to the conclusion we shouldn't do so until we are living there full time. Compressor problems is the main reason. If there is such a problem with units used full time, my thinking was storing wine for short periods of time, turning the unit off in our absence, turning it on again when we are there seemed a recipe for disaster for the wine, the unit and us.

Did I reach the right conclusion?
