Transtherm Ermitage Solid Black Full Shelf #17037
Unlike most other cellars, Transtherm cellars are equipped for both cooling and heating - perfect for use in colder climates or regions with a wide variation in seasonal temperatures. This wine cellar is configured with rolling shelves in every slot.
Ermitage wine cabinets have 1 temperature zone that maintains ideal conditions from 43 to 64°F and 55%-80% RH for storing and chilling your wine collection.
We offer Ermitage wine cabinets with 14 adjustable rolling shelves (12 bottles per shelf) and 1 half shelf on the bottom. Using this configuration, the wine cabinet holds 182 bottles.
Placement Requirements: Ermitage and Castel wine cabinets require 3 inches of clearance behind the cabinets, as well as 2 inches of clearance on the sides and above the cabinets. Transtherm cabinets use 120V / 60Hz power. Single cabinets require a 15-Amp circuit, while double cabinets require two (2) 15-amp circuits.

Removable Door Handle:
Steel and aluminum door handle can be removed, and is reversible on glass doors.
The walls of the Transtherm Ermitage cabinets are made of three successive thermal barriers. The internal walls have been upgraded to aluminum, and the exterior walls are reinforced at the corners by insulating sections, and injected with 4. 5cm high-density expanded foam to ensure optimal insulation.
Thermal Regulation: When the ambient temperature rises above the setpoint, a cold circuit, driven by a very slow cycle compressor mounted on silent-blocks, automatically comes into action. The cold circuit coil, made of aluminum, is within the aluminum back wall of the cabinet, for a better temperature distribution. When the amibient temperature drops below the setpoint, an electrical resistance, which is also within the back wall, will come into action and automatically increase the temperature.
Natural Ventilation: In order to avoid the mold phenomenon, which would generate bad odors and risk deteriorating the corks, the Transtherm Ermitage has natural permanent ventilation, based on the same principal as the thermal pump.
Absence of Vibration: Choosing slow and balanced compressors, as well as disassociating them from the cabinet's body, allows the elimination of all residual vibrations.
Thermal Pump: The thermal pump process, (a Transtherm exclusive), by reheating the condensation from the evaporator coils, recycles humid air in the cabinet and considerably increases the hygrometry value between 55% - 80%. This principle gives the cabinet natural ventilation and constant air circulation.
Electronic Temperature Control: Transtherm Ermitage cabinets are equipped with an electronic temperature regulation system that regulates the cold and hot circuits and maintains a maximum temperature variation of 2-3F inside the wine cabinet.
Digital Display:All Transtherm cabinets are equipped with a temperature setting and control panel, featuring a LED display.

Transtherm Ermitage Wine Cabinet
by Del Rio Country Club -
I bought this transherm Ermitage model Transtherm Ermitage Solid Door Wine Cellar Black Fully Shelved, #17037. Everything from the Sales process to delievery and setup was amazing. I have just plugged in the cooler for 24 hours. But for now I am totally happy with IWA with both product and sales
Nice cooler but shelves a bit scratchy.
The product arrived on time. We waited 72 hours before plugging it in. It runs quietly and cooled nicely.
We bought the unit with all 14 rolling shelves installed. Several of them had been jostled off the tracking during shipping and several of the plastic shelf stabilizers had come loose. I was able to reengage them on the tracks with some moderate pressure and jiggering.
They generally now work fine "functionally" but about half of the selves make a scratching/rubbing sound when they are moved. I'm not sure if this is normal as the other half of the selves roll out without that sound. I attempted to make an adjustment to a shelf as indicated in the User Manual but the scratching noise remains. It glides fairly smoothly so maybe this is just the norm; some shelves just make a moderate amount of noise.
All in all the cooler seems fine just a bit irritating that the scratching noise happens with some shelves.
Doing business with IWA was an awesome experience. They were so professional and knowledgeable.
They guided me to the exact wine storage unit i was in need of. Could not be happier with my Transtherm Ermitage.
Great Wine Cabinet, Quiet and strong. well built

i ordered this unit to replace a Altavino unit for my garage. The unit arrived via white glove delivery and was set up. After the 48 hr waiting period before start up i turned it on and its been working flawlessly since. Very quiet although for being in the garage thats not a big deal. Its been warm in Edmonds since i got it and temps in my garage have approached 85 degrees already and the temp inside the wine cabinet barely moved. Very happy with it so far.
