COOLING UNIT OVERVIEW
Loft wine cabinets from Le Cache come with a choice of 2 CellarPro cooling units
included in the price of the wine cabinet. The 2 CellarPro cooling units are sized exactly alike, and therefore they are interchangeable. However, the 2 cooling units differ in terms of their BTUH cooling output and the level of noise that they produce. Each of the 2 cooling units is discussed below.
For more information about sizing the best cooling unit for your cabinet, refer to our Cooling Unit Buying Guide for Wine Cabinets.
The 1800QT cooling unit is designed for residential use
in a temperature-controlled environment
. The 1800QT easily can maintain 55F in our largest wine cabinets
This unit can be used with our front duct hood.Key Stats
: 1380 BTUH at 55F, 45 dbA installed in a cabinet.CELLARPRO 1800XT
The 1800XT is approximately 5% more powerful and 3 decibels louder than the 1800QT cooling unit, because it uses more powerful fans. As a result, the 1800XT is ideally suited for garage environments
(with temperatures ranging from 40F to 95F), commercial environments
(where the cellar is frequently accessed) and installations with our front-duct hood.
: 1456 BTUH at 55F, 48 dbA installed in a cabinet.
The cooling unit plugs into a standard wall outlet, and the outlet should be on a dedicated circuit. The components of the cooling unit draw 3 amps, and the electric outlet on the side of the cooling unit also is rated for 3 amps. The cord extends 6 1/2 feet from the back of the cabinet. If an extension cord is used, it should be 14-gauge wire or thicker, grounded, and as short as possible. We recommend using a surge protector rated at 15 amps or more. Under no circumstances should the wine cabinet share a circuit with another motor or compressor-based appliance, like a wine cooler, fridge or air conditioner.
Because of the significant weight of your wine cabinet, it is important that it be placed on a hard surface, otherwise the cabinet may become skewed if the doors settle unevenly over time. If you will be placing your cabinet on thick carpeting, consider placing a carpet board underneath the wine cabinet. You can purchase a carpet board from Le Cache, or you can have your local hardware store cut a 3/4 inch plywood board to the following dimensions: 26.5w x 25d
DOOR SWING CLEARANCE:
The doors of our wine cabinets swing "wide" by approximately 1 inch when open at 90 degrees. The additional width should be accounted for when purchasing cabinets that do not have moldings, because the stated widths of our wine cabinets do not account for the door swing. Please note that the additional width is required in front of the cabinet.
WEIGHT LOAD FACTOR:
After loading your wine cabinet with wine bottles, it will be extremely heavy. When selecting a location for your cabinet, make sure that the floor underneath is strong enough to support the weight of the cabinet.
CellarPro cooling units are designed to handle temperatures ranging from 50 to 95F.
The cooling unit generates hot air that, when combined with our front-vent hood, will be exhausted from the front of the wine cabinet
Our built-in configuration enables the placement of the wine cabinet flush against the wall in an enclosed space, closet or alcove, provided that at least 1 1/2 inches of clearance exists above the wine cabinet and hood for removal of the hood and the air filter.
Does a built-in cabinet require space above or behind the cabinet?
Built-in cabinets using our front-vent hoods do not require space behind or to the sides of the cabinet. Above the cabinet, with the front-vent hood installed, an additional 1 1/2 inches of space is required to remove the front-vent hood so that the cooling unit condenser coils can be cleaned periodically, or the filter replaced. Click on our placement requirements tab for more information.
Does the unit really need a dedicated circuit?
A: Yes, our units require dedicated circuits. When we say "dedicated circuit", we mean that the circuit shouldn't have any items that require heavy draws of electricity - eg other appliances, vacuum cleaners, big-screen TVs, blow-dryers - on the same circuit as the cooling unit. Lighting, computers or other low-draw items shouldn't be a problem on the same circuit.
Do I need the condensate drain line?
A: You don't need the drain line because our wine cabinets are constructed to be airtight when the doors are closed, and the cooling unit has a drain pan to catch excess condensation, which is burned off as the cooling unit runs.
Why does the fan run without the compressor?
A: We've programmed our fans to stay "on" for 3 minutes after the compressor turns "off", and then every 15 minutes thereafter , to recirculate moisture inside the cabinet. This fan cycle is extremely energy efficient, and increases the humidity inside the cabinet.
