Description

The WhisperKOOL Platinum series of split systems is the most efficient ever put out by WhisperKOOL.

Improved Design

At WhisperKOOL, we have redesigned the housing for the Platinum series split system evaporators. While the internal components have proven to be reliable and effective, we have designed new housing systems for improved installation and accessibility. The previous design was a little challenging in terms of mounting and accessing the components for installation. It required the removal of the top or side panel. When racking was installed around the unit, it was difficult to gain access for service or maintenance.

Our new design makes the units easier to install by gaining access to system from the front of the unit where we have installed removable grills. This greatly improves the ability to install the system and access it for maintenance. Please note that the dimensions have changed slightly. Review the specification section when planning your install to account for the dimensional change. At WhisperKOOL, we believe in the goal of continuous improvement in everything we do in order to enhance the customer's experience.

The WhisperKOOL Platinum 8000 Split System will cool a wine cellar up to 2000 cubic feet. For cellars under 1000 cubic feet, there is a smaller WhisperKOOL Platinum 4000. WhisperKOOL Platinum Split Systems are also available fully ducted.

WhisperKOOL Cold Weather Start Kit

WhisperKOOL's Cold Weather Start Kit was designed exclusively in cases where WhisperKOOL split-systems' condensing unit will be installed in extremely cold environments. WhisperKOOL split systems are designed to adapt to almost any type of install, as the condensing unit can be located in locations such as a basement, mechanical room, back yard, or even a rooftop. Our split systems were designed to operate with the condensing unit exposed to temperatures between 20° F and 110° F. However, there are some areas in the country that may drop below 20° F. Due to these conditions WhisperKOOL designed the Cold Weather Start Kit.

24V Thermostat Conversion Kit:

The new 24-volt thermostat conversion kit for WhisperKOOL split systems** is the latest technology to manage and monitor your wine cellar environment with WhisperKOOL.

  • Utilize the industry leading technology from major manufacturers to monitor the environment of your cellar (see individual thermostat manufacturers' features and benefits for details).
  • Connect your thermostat to Wi‑Fi to control the temperature from your phone, tablet or laptop.
  • Monitor temperature and humidity through smart phones.
  • Monitor run time and energy usage.
  • Set alarm notifications.
  • View your cellar conditions from your cellular 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
  • Honeywell

Note:

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 does not provide technical support for the customers selected thermostat.

The 24-volt Thermostat conversion kit is currently available as an option for all Platinum and Ceiling Mount Split System models.

    Features

    The Fully Ducted Platinum Split is WhisperKOOL's newest split system. Ducting a Split creates a virtually silent cellar environment and allows for maximum installation options. The system uses our liquid bottle probe for monitoring the actual temperature of the wine to ensure the wine is being kept at 55℉. The evaporator portion may be installed up to 25 duct feet from the cellar.

    Temperature Differential

    Digital Thermostat

    The WhisperKOOL split system is designed with a 55-degree temperature differential. This means the unit can operate correctly even if the ambient temperature outside (or where ever the condenser unit is mounted even) in 110 degree heat. This is a significant improvement over most cooling units designed for wine storage.

    The system includes both the evaporator and condenser units.

    The WhisperKOOL split cooling system requires professional installation by a licensed refrigeration technician. The contents of this system does not include a line set.

    Additional Info

    The Split System is often the most efficient way to cool a cellar. Cooling unit condensers are typically noisy and require significant space for ventilation, in most cases the cellar location does not include an area for these functions. By splitting the cooling system, the condenser can be placed in a space better suited for heat and noise dissipation while the quiet evaporator is inside, or near, the cellar. A licensed HVAC/R technician is required for the installation.
