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 8000 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.

Works great for my cellar
I have owned a WhisperKOOL 7000 split system for the past three years. My wine collection is about 1500 bottles. The cellar has maintained a consistant 55 degrees all the time. I imagine the cooling unit could cool a much larger cellar than mine considering that it runs less than 50% of the time. Noise is not a factor as the evaporator unit in my cellar is very quiet, the condenser is outside in the side yard. The only thing i would change is the installation location. I should have mounted the evaporator above the doorway so it would not be seen. other than that, i am very satisfied with this product.
