I am a general  contractor specializing in high end wine rooms. Air and humidity control are vital to keep wine from going bad. Sometimes the wine collected by my clients turns into a very important investment and could amount into the tens of thousands. I have done this for many years, and since the beginning I have trusted the refrigeration to the guys at Air Mechanix. I will never work with another company. Air Mechanix takes real pride in their job and every time delivers nothing short of perfection. They are knowledgeable and experienced — in fact, most of what I know about wine conservation was taught to me by them. Thanks Bobbi and Dale for many years of satisfied customers.
