The SC 8000i wine cellar cooling unit form part of our affordable range of self contained wine cellar coolers from WhisperKOOL.

These cooling units have become the industry standard for wine cellar contractors and they were in fact designed based on feedback from customers and installers.

These great packages are built for simple between-the-studs installation with a single piece mounting bracket which eliminates the need for a support shelf. Interior installation is ideal for the SC series to most effectively maintain your cellar at 55°F.

BTUh Rating:

There are circumstances in which a cellar design may require a larger unit due to some existing design restrictions.

There are several factors such as glass, stone, concrete, etc. which will seem adequate but do not offer the insulation capacity required to maintain the optimum environment.

We recommend purchasing a unit with a larger capacity to compensate for the design limitations. Please utilizing our Cellar Wizard in order to ensure you are selecting the proper cooling unit for your application.

Under sized cooling units can lead to pre-mature failure and/or prevent the system from reaching the desired set temperature. As a result they are not covered under warranty.
