This is not a list of every product that WhisperKOOL manufacture; rather it is a detailed description of the Wine Cellar Cooling Units and Systems from WhisperKOOL that we typically recommend and make use of when installing a cooling system in residential or commercial custom wine cellars and or wine cabinets.
Our choices are based on long and practical experience in maintaining and designing in these systems. In that sense by reviewing the content on this page you are gaining from our experience. Our choices are based what we consider the most suitable for different types of installations. Typically ‘our choice’ is a balance of factors such as aesthetics, noise, reliability and cost effective cooling units from this particular manufacturer.
Self-Contained Cooling Unit from WhisperKOOL – The SC (Self Contained) Systems
The SC Series are the latest Self Contained Wine Cellar Cooling Units from WhisperKOOL. They replace the older XTL series and range from the 2000i though to the 8000i, the main difference between them being the size of the wine room they can refrigerate.
These units are one of the most economical solutions and are intended for simple through-the-wall installation. WhisperKOOL SC units fit between standard wall studs and the rear flange eliminates the need for a support shelf.
The Slimline 2500 has a lower profile than the regular cooling units and is therefore ideal to install above the wine cellar door in smaller wine cellars up to 350 cu, ft. such as closet conversions.
All SC models come with a standard Condensate Evaporator which dissipates excess moisture that collects during normal operation.
As with all WhisperKOOL wine cellar refrigeration systems, SC and the Slimline 2500 are equipped with a Liquid Measuring Thermostat to precisely preserve wine cellar temperature. Both have a 30°F temperature differential. In order to keep your wine cellar temperature at 55°F, the area the unit is exhausting into should not exceed 85°F. This makes the SC Series and the Slimline 2500 ideal for interior installations.
The difference between WhisperKOOL systems and traditional air conditioning systems is the cooling rate and maintenance of humidity levels. Traditional systems cool the wine cellar too quickly and have difficulty reaching 57F degrees; this inadvertently removes humidity taking it below acceptable levels typically resulting in dried out corks and oxidized wine. WhisperKOOL systems measure the environment by sensing conditions by way of liquid temperature, thus cooling the air slowly to maintain 50% to 70% humidity in a properly prepared wine cellar.
WhisperKOOL SC also includes optional accessories. A Small Exhaust Duct Kit for the 1600, 3000, 4200 models is also available. This duct kit allows you to duct the warm exhaust air into another room or to the outdoors.
