WhisperKOOL Ductless Split Systems

Self Contained wine cooling units are the most inexpensive and easiest to install. They are intended to mount between the studs of an existing wall, and they do not require a licensed HVAC/R installation technician. Cool air blows from one end of the wine cooling systems, and the other end absorbs heat from the cellar and exhausts the heat into an area adjacent to the wine cellars. WhisperKOOL self-contained wine cellar cooling units will make more noise than a split or ducted system.

WhisperKOOL split wine cooling systems are often the most efficient way to cool wine cellars. Cooling unit condensers are typically noisy and need space for ventilation. In many cases the wine cellar design and location does not include an area for these functions. By splitting the wine cellar cooling units system, the condenser can be placed in a space better suited for heat and noise dissipation while the quiet evaporator is inside, or near the wine cellars. A licensed HVAC/R technician is required for a split system installation

Ducted systems can be Self-Contained or Split unit

WhisperKOOL ducted wine cooling systems can be Self-Contained or Split systems and typically have more installation options/flexibility. The wine cellar cooling units may be installed up to 25 ducted feet from the cellar, with the cool air flowing to the wine cellars and the heat exhaust ducted to the outside of the home. Ducting is also a more aesthetically pleasing choice for wine cellar design since many do not want to see wine cooling units in their wine cellars. Sound from the wine cooling units will be reduced or eliminated, depending on the installation.
