A self-contained wine cellar cooling system is a big seller for wine cellar cooling units. These units are called self-contained or ducted as both the compressor and evaporator are all within the same housing.
Self-contained wine cellar cooling systems can be situated outside of the wine cellar, such as a mechanical room, or storage room. The supply of cool air is ducted to the wine cellar and the return of warm air is ducted outside or to another location - up to 25 feet away from the cooling unit. Placing the cooling unit outside the cellar results in a quiet cellar with no obtrusive equipment taking up valuable rack space.
Available in 4 different sizes, from 3,760 BTU to 15,680 BTU, depending on your wine cellar size, insulation and geographical and physical location. Excellent cooling for residential, restaurant or commercial wine cellars.
Average life span for a self-contained wine cellar cooling system is anywhere from 8 to 12 years, sometimes longer.
Water-Cooled Configurations: Self-contained wine cellar cooling systems have a number of different options available as well. Options such as water-cooled for geothermal, cooling tower and lake water applications.
Electric Heat: Factory mounted electric heater to protect your wine cellar from cold ambient temperatures.
Serving Temperature: Factory configured serving temperature option allows a self-contained wine cellar cooling system to control to an extended temperature range from 42 degrees F to 64 degrees F. This configuration is perfect for single to multiple cabinet applications and small wine rooms in which consumption-temperature cooling is preferred. This allows you to rotate your wine bottles more frequently and change the set point from season to season. This is ideal for restaurants, wine bars, clubs, etc.
Low Ambient Option: Factory mounted control system to protect the refrigeration system when exposed to temperatures below 40 degrees F.
