The Wine Guardian is the industry leader in self-contained wine cellar cooling systems. The Wine Guardian is the Best Climate Control Solution for Wine Storage on the market today. These systems are delivered pre-charged with refrigerant (R-134a), so installation is easy. Units are usually mounted in a room adjacent to the wine cellar; they can also be mounted inside the wine cellar.
Wine Guardian is the only system which incorporates cooling, heating, filtration, humidification, ducting, internal safety devices and low ambient control as integrated solutions. It is the only unit capable of multiple installation configurations - thru-wall (flush, fully recessed or semi-recessed), remote mount, indoor or outdoor. It is the only unit capable of ducting on both the evaporator and condenser side. Made in the USA. 24/7 hotline for information and assistance.
The Wine Guardian cooling unit is a professional, USA manufactured, self-contained climate control unit designed specifically for the storage of wine at cellar temperatures. It is designed for easy installation and operation. Wine Guardian uses digital electronic controls and environmentally friendly R-134a refrigerant. The entire unit is run tested at the factory and shipped as a single package. All components are of a high quality standard commercial grade. The entire unit is approved by ETL according to UL 1995 and CSA safety standards. All wiring complies with NEC. Each unit is furnished with a sealed, UL approved power cord and plug.
The Wine Guardian unit is completely self-contained and includes an integral air cooled condenser. The unit is functionally divided into two sections, the evaporator or cooling section and the condenser or heat rejection section. Each section contains a coil to add or remove heat and a fan to move the air through the coil and into or out of the cellar or adjacent space. The Wine Guardian unit is designed to be used either as a free blowing, through the wall unit or as a remote mount unit with external ductwork connections.
Air from the cellar first enters a filter to remove any airborne dust particles and then enters the cooling coil. Air passes through the cooling coil and is cooled by the refrigerant inside the coil. This causes any excess humidity in the air to condense and be captured in the drain pan and piped outside the unit. Air then enters the fan where it is pressurized and discharged out of the unit. Operational heating coils are located between the cooling coil and the fan. These coils heat the air to prevent low temperatures in the cellar. The thermostat, located in the cellar, turns on the cooling or heating as needed to maintain its set point. It does not allow the cooling and heating to be on the same time.
The compressor and condenser sections are activated whenever the unit is cooling. The condenser fan draws air from the surrounding or ambient space either directly or through a duct. The air is first drawn through a filter to remove any airborne dust particles to keep the coil clean. Then the air flows through the condenser coil where it absorbs heat from the refrigerant in the coil. The air is finally discharged out of the unit by the condenser fan.
Low Ambient and Electric Heat Model This unit includes a factory installed Low Ambient option that makes the Wine Guardian capable of exposure to low ambient temperatures. This feature controls the condenser fan operation based on head pressure and heats the oil reservoir. The Low Ambient option is recommended whenever the condenser section is exposed to air temperatures below 40 degrees Fahrenheit. This can occur if the unit is placed in a garage or under an outdoor canopy, or if the unit is located inside a heated space but the condenser air is ducted in from the outside.
It also features a factory installed heating coil that is built-in and requires no additional power source. It includes primary and secondary over-protection devices per UL and NEC.
