The Extreme 5000ti introduces variable speed fans to WhisperKOOL’s most advanced and powerful self-contained cooling system. Utilizing variable speed fans this high capacity unit can maintain optimal cellar condi- tions while operating at a quiet 57 decibels. The Extreme is designed to fit between standard wall studs for simple “through-the-wall” installation with minimum modification to existing wall structures. Extremes are acceptable for mounting through an exterior wall and can operate in a 110°F exhaust environment. The ti Series includes our most advanced controller utilizing Advanced System Protection Technology. This features a series of strategically placed monitoring probes, which ensure efficient performance and long cooling unit life. This system is designed to maintain 55°F and 50-70% relative humidity in a cellar up to 1000 cubic feet in size.
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.
Our new Active Humidity system utilizes Intermittent Mist Injection technology which carefully measures the volume of moisture needed to raise the relative humidity within the cellar to an acceptable level. Easy to install and effortless in use, simply connect a soft water source to the unit, install the humidistat and you are ready to go. This optional integrated system must be specified at the time of ordering of the unit. For cellars with cooling units already installed, customers can select our stand alone system which offers the same technology in a small, but effective, package.

I've had a custom walk in cellar cooled by a Vinotheque 3000 XLT unit for over 10 years. While I was always happy with the unit it did run quite a bit and, as a result, I had to replace it every few years. To their credit, Vinotheque offered a reasonably priced "trade-in" program and was always quite prompt in sending the new unit. The last time I contacted them they offered the substantially more expensive new Extreme series unit which they said would fit right into the existing hole. I decided to switch and I'm extremely happy I did.
While the 3000 XLT was a substantial unit, from the moment I opened it I could easily see that the Extreme took things to another level. It is much quieter, moves far more air and, as a result, runs far less often. Vinotheque asked me to send in picture of my installation and made some recommendations and offered to extend the warranty to four years if I made them.
I wanted to remodel and expand the cellar anyway so I did that an incorporated all their suggestions. I'm thrilled with the results, the Extreme runs even less often (mostly, I think, because I super-insulated the door -- something I would recommend to others because it makes a huge difference). Vinotheque was as good as their word and promptly extended the warranty once I sent in new photos.
No product, no matter how good, is any better than the service that backs it up. I've read all sorts of horror stories about poor service
for wine cellar cooling units. My recommendation is to look no further than Vinotheque -- great cooling units and even better customer service.

I recenly replaced my old WK4200 XLT with the Extreme 5000ti. My cellar is well insulated and holds 1200 bottles. Upon start up, the temperature was 68 degrees and less than 48 hours it reached set point of 55 degrees. I am truly impressed and pleased that I was talked into upgrading to this machine!

I have collected about 600 bottles and the temperature is staying at 55 degrees in my garage cellar. During the summer, temperatures can reach over 100 outside, with 95% humidity. I made sure to build the cellar with good insulation and vapor barrier. The Extreme hasn’t missed a beat. I’ll let you know how it goes after another hot summer.
