Because the mist from these fans lingers in the air, the space around them can easily be kept up to 40 degrees cooler than the temperature of the surrounding environment, and you don't even need to walk directly in front of one of these fans to feel its cooling effect. The average misting fan operates using thermal dynamics and water evaporation to lower temperatures. Although other types of cooling appliances that use water evaporation do so by drawing in warm air through water soaked pads (instantly cooling it), the typical misting fan takes a slightly different approach.Tank V's Hose Misting FansAs far as the water source goes, some misting fans have a water tank that must be refilled and cleaned out on occasion in order to stay in proper operation. Misting fans with a refillable tank can be a good option for spaces not close to a water source or fans that need to stay portable. However, there are many models that conveniently connect directly to your garden hose for instant access to a water source. If you do happen to have more than one misting fan, you can use a hose splitter (available at most home improvement stores) so you can connect a hose to each appliance.Misting fans with water tanks do not need to connect to an external water source, but they do have a limited amount of time until they need to be refilled again. Obviously, the amount of water a tank can hold varies from model to model, but the average backyard misting fan can last three to seven hours before they need another water refill.Now, aside from the maintenance factor of the water tank misting fans, the other factor that sets the two types apart is the cost. Fans that connect to garden hoses tend to be a lot cheaper than their water tank counterparts, and this is largely due to the higher manufacturing costs of water tank systems. On the other hand, water tank misting fans are a lot more portable than those that connect to garden hoses, although both still need to be connected to an energy source for power.When And Where To Use Misting FansMisting fans are a great option during the summer months when temperatures are highest. To be more specific, the best time to run a misting fan out on your patio or deck is going to be between midday and the later afternoon-- the hottest hours of the day. As far as location goes, it's best that you keep a misting fan off to one side of your patio with plenty of space around it (especially if you have kids running around, safety should come first). Make sure it is not up against the side of your house or any other walls.Misting fans are built to be sturdy and will survive if left outside during a rainstorm, but that doesn't mean they should be left in the open day after day. If exposed to high humidity for extended periods of time, a misting fan can corrode. Fortunately, all you have to do is put the fan in your garage or shed when you're not using it. Allow time for the unit to dry out before packing it away for storage. This will help prevent mildew from forming. Most misting fans come with manuals that advise how best to take care of them and when to use them.trust491521125Contentwine-cooler-101.htmPage-Content-wine-cooler-101.htm098465/wine-cooler-101.htm26FreeAnswerUrl/wine-cooler-101.htm1System27FreeAnswerBrowser TitleWine Storage Facts | Wine Coolers Cellars & Refrigerators1Page28WysiwygContent<h1 align="center">Wine Storage Facts - What You Need to Know</h1><table style="width: 200px" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="right" border="0"><tbody><tr><td style="border-top-color: ; border-left-color: ; border-bottom-color: ; border-right-color: " valign="top"><img src="http://cache.air-n-water.com/images/red-wine-2.jpg" alt="red-wine-2" align="right"/></td></tr></tbody></table><p align="left">If one of your hobbies is collecting exotic or expensive wines, then the next thing you have to think about is how you're going to maintain your investment.

Wine Storage Facts - What You Need to Know

red-wine-2

If one of your hobbies is collecting exotic or expensive wines, then the next thing you have to think about is how you're going to maintain your investment. There are a lot of different types of wine storage units and between wine bottle coolers, wine racks, portable wine coolers, and wine cellars, it's easy to get confused. 

However, with a easy to follow guide on the importance of storing your investment properly and a quick breakdown of the different types, you'll have this category covered.  But before discussing the different options, it's important to understand why simple sticking a bottle or two in the fridge is far from adequate for storing your bottle of wine.

Why Refrigerators Don't Work

A wine refrigerator is only a quick easy way to store wines in the short term, often for only a maximum of one year- the same goes with a traditional refrigerator.  However, even a year is quite a long time, and with fridge temperatures varying, its likely that your kitchen fridge is just not cold enough to store your bottle of wine. 

However, with a wine cooler, you can easily maintain a constant temperature to cool or chill your wines so they will be ready to serve at all times.

Types of Wine Storage

wine storage

When it comes to choosing a method for wine storage, you want to consider and compare the different features available to you. There are three basic types of wine cooler storage devices:  wine bottle coolers, (multiple bottle) wine coolers, and wine cellars.

If you're a beginner, you may want to consider a wine bottle cooler, which also works great for dinners and smaller events.  This way you can have the bottle temperature maintained while you dine.  This is a particularly key table setting item if you expect the meal to last for a longer time.  A wine cooler also adds a level of sophistication to any dinner or cocktail party, which you can never go wrong with

If you're collection is a little larger, then consider a wine cooler that comes equipped with wine racks to prevent your bottles from crashing together.  Wine coolers have advanced a long way and most (such as NewAir wine coolers) now also come with thermoelectric multiple independently controlled temperature zones for both red and white wines, touch screens, sleek lighting with glass doors, casters for mobility, as well as a wide variety of styles for various space needs, plus an ability to house anywhere between 14 to 32 bottles.

When buying a wine cooler, you should also understand the specific differences between a wine cooler and a wine cellar. If you have aging wines or a long term wine storage need then you need a more sophisticated wine cellar as opposed to just a wine cooler. Once you've understood the difference you want to consider the capacity you need for a wine cooler (or cellar). However, if you're a wine expert or have a larger collection, then a portable wine cellar is your go to purchase.  Small or large, a wine cooler unit protects your investment (as well as its taste) until you're ready to drink it.

Wine Cooler Capacity

Wine coolers come in a variety of sizes that range from small coolers that have the capacity to store 6 to 20 bottles, while larger models (such as wine cellars) can accommodate around 100 to 200 bottles. If you are planning on have several hundred bottles of wine then you might want to consider getting a wine cabinet or wine room. It is generally a good idea to buy a wine cooler that can hold at least double the number of wine bottles you currently have. You'll find that it's often quite easy to fill up the space you have quickly, especially if you are constantly looking to buy wines.

Of course, you also need to consider the capacity you have in your home for a wine cooler. If you don't have a lot of room than a small 6 to 12 bottle wine cooler can be an excellent space saving option. If you don't drink wine all that often it can be a good idea to get a single or double bottle wine cooler in order to meet your practical needs.

Choosing a Wine Cooler

Once you've narrowed down and determined the capacity you need, it's time to consider the prices of wine coolers. Wine coolers like all other appliances should have you looking for good quality. If you buy a cheap wine cooler than you will be getting something that is less reliable. However, if you don't want to spend a lot of money on a wine cooler than you should at the very least find a wine cooler that has all the features you need for a reasonable price.
