What makes a great wine depends on age and how it is stored. Believe it or not, spray foam plays a big part in keeping wine tasting just right.
Many wine tasting experts say that a wine cellar or room should be kept at a temperature of 55 degrees fahrenheit. Temperatures above 70 degrees can negatively alter the taste of the wine. Wine rooms should also have a humidity level between 60-70% to prohibit mold from growing on corks and bottles. Having the right humidity level will also prevent wine corks from drying up.
The ideal location for a wine cellar or room is below ground level where temperatures are generally cooler and the right humidity level is present. However, it is possible to create the perfect environment with insulation. Spray foam regulates humidity and temperature by sealing any air leaks with its ability to expand and compact in tight spaces. Spray foam insulation also prevents mold growth which is formed by dirt collection in air pockets found in traditional insulation such as fiberglass.
Spray foam insulation can be a great option for wine cellars and rooms at vineyards, restaurants, and even at home. For more information about the spray foam installation process, contact us at Energy Assault Solutions.
