Description

The Platinum Mini 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.

Not sure if the Platinum Mini Split it right for your wine cellar? Visit our Cellar Wizard and find the right cooling system for your needs.

Note: A qualified HVAC-R technician is required for installation. Failure to have the system installed by a qualified technician will void the warranty.

*PLEASE NOTE: WhisperKOOL does not provide smart thermostat. By selecting the 24V Thermostat Conversion Kit, you have acknowledged that the system will not be built with the standard WhisperKOOL control or liquid measuring bottle probe. You will have to source and purchase your own 24V smart thermostat to run the equipment. The WhisperKOOL Customer Satisfaction Team does not provide technical support for smart thermostats.

BTU/h Rating

2101

The BTU/h value shown here is a theoretical number. There are often circumstances under which a cellar design may require a larger unit due to variables not accounted for in the formula. For example, these variables could be building materials (such as glass, stone, concrete, etc.) which do not offer the insulation capacity required to maintain the optimal cellar environment. We recommend purchasing a unit with a larger capacity to compensate for these unaccounted-for variables. An undersized unit can lead to premature failure and will most likely prevent the cellar from reaching your desired temperature.

Cellar Wizard

For more specific calculations, we have a tool which accounts for these variables. Please utilize this tool in order to ensure you are selecting the proper cooling unit for your application. Our tool is called the Cellar Wizard.

24V Thermostat Conversion kit

Introducing our new 24-volt thermostat conversion kit for WhisperKOOL split systems!

Utilize industry-leading technology from major manufacturers to monitor the environment of your cellar. (See individual thermostat manufacturers’ websites for details.)

  • Connect your thermostat to Wi‑Fi to control the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop.
  • Monitor run time and energy usage.
  • Set alarm notifications.
  • View your cellar conditions from your mobile device.

The use of the 24-volt thermostat conversion kit eliminates the thermostat normally included with the system and allows your contractor to select, purchase and install the thermostat technology of your choice, including but not limited to Nest, Ecobee, and Honeywell.

By selecting the 24V Thermostat Conversion Kit, you have acknowledged that the system will not be built with the standard WhisperKOOL control or liquid measuring bottle probe. You will have to source and purchase your own 24V thermostat to run the equipment.

  • Not utilizing the thermostat from WhisperKOOL also eliminates the use of the bottle probe.
  • WhisperKOOL does not provide smart thermostats.  Those must be purchased separately.
  • WhisperKOOL customer service staff do not provide technical support for customers’ selected thermostats.

  1. 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.

  2. JR

    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.
