WhisperKOOL Cold Weather Start Kit
The WhisperKOOL Cold Weather Start Kit, or CWSK, enables WhisperKOOL cooling units to operate in cold temperatures.
WhisperKOOL units work by utilizing a pump down cycle. The system uses a solenoid to cut off the refrigerant flow. During the off-cycle, the refrigerant comes to rest in the receiver.
WhisperKOOL Cold Weather Start Kit (17898). Designed for split systems where the condensing unit will be located in environments that drop below -15°F (-26.1°C).
When temperatures drop, so does the pressure inside the cooling system, and the compressor can’t start properly. This kit adds an electronic bypass to start the compressor and a temperature-controlled heater on the receiver to raise the refrigerant pressure to optimal levels.
