The Mini Platinum Split was designed for a more aesthetic install for smaller wine cellars. Described in the simplest terms, a split system is a cooling unit wherein the evaporator unit and condensing unit have been “split” into two separate units instead of being contained within the same housing. The evaporator unit is located in or near your cellar, and the condensing unit is generally located outside, or in an attic or utility room.
The Platinum Split allows you to decide where the evaporator unit and the condensing unit will be located. The condensing unit can be located up to 100 ft. away from the evaporator unit. The evaporator unit will be mounted in the cellar or it can also be located nearby with ducting.
If you don’t mind seeing the grille of your cooling unit in your cellar, a wall-mounted split system is what you need. If you prefer your unit to be out of sight, you should get a fully ducted split system. The choice is yours.

I purchased this mini split to cool my wine cabinet in 2010. For nine years, my cooling unit ran smoothly with no issues. Earlier this month, it suddenly stopped cooling. Worried that I would have to buy another unit, I called the company to see if they could diagnose the issue. It turns out it was only a minor issue (pressure switch), and now my unit is running great again. I was very impressed with the company’s quality of service and the time it took them to solve my problem. I am a proud owner of a WhisperKOOL cooling unit, and I recommend this product.
Napa wine lover –
I have two of these units cooling my wine cabinets. They are compact, quiet and work very well at keeping my wine cool. My refrigeration contractor worked with the factory to assure the installation went smoothly and that the warranty was activated. Apparently a form needs to be completed to make sure the system is operating correctly. The only challenge i have is the system has a noticeable click when it starts. My friend recommended the Whisperkool unit and the installer. I am excited to have my wine collection at my fingertips.
