Photo of Breezaire WKCE Series Wine Cooling UnitThe BREEZAIRE WKC / WKCE Series cooling units are a compact design with cold air discharge on the bottom, which makes them ideal to be installed in cabinets and credenzas. Because of their configuration the WKC / WKCE series cooling units are not rated for specified number of cubic feet. They are intended for cabinets and other constricted enclosures. This unit measures at 10.5"H x 18"W x 16.5"D

The WKCE Model has a digital electronic (Sentry III) thermostat that adds additional safety and convenience features:

  • Large, easy to read, green LED display.
  • Accurate, easy to adjust (no tools needed) readable set points with continuous reading of enclosure temperature or displaying of set point when changing enclosure temperatures.
  • Power outage protection, which delays unit start up after power outages.
  • Blocked airflow protection, which shuts down unit and protects wine in case of high temperatures caused by condenser blockage.
  • Controls temperature by enclosure air sensors or optional bottle probe.
  • HUMIDITY & INSTALLATION: By the nature of their operation, wine cooling units will maintain a stable humidity level, lower than the relative ambient humidity. In situations where the ambient humidity is high, the cooling unit will lower the humidity to desirable storage levels. In situations where the ambient relative humidity is very low, the desired enclosure relative humidity may not be achieved without adding moisture. To add moisture to the enclosure only use slow, natural evaporation from a small porous water container. Do not use a humidifier.

  • TEMPERATURE & INSTALLATION: These wine cellar cooling units are designed to cool 25 degrees less than the ambient temperature of the venting side of the unit. In some cases, improper placement or installation may cause the unit's performance to be degraded. The condensing unit must have a constant supply of fresh air, less than 85 degrees F. If the condensing unit is located in a confined area with poor ventilation, the unit will not be able to reject the heat it is removing from the enclosure and a malfunctioning unit will be suspected, even though the unit is mechanically sound. Call us to discuss your installation concerns.

  • Adjustable Temperature
    The ideal temperature for storing and aging wine is between 50° and 60° Fahrenheit. Each BREEZAIRE system includes an adjustable thermostat that makes it possible for the user to precisely control the conditions in the wine cellar. When initially bringing the temperature down to the desired level and in maintaining the target temperature, the system produces a gentle stream of cool air - never a blast of cold air that could subject the wine to abrupt temperature changes.

  • Automatic Humidity Control
    Humidity must be present in the wine cellar to prevent cork and label deterioration. The gentle cooling action of the BREEZAIRE system maintains the relative humidity in the 50% to 75% range, eliminating excess moisture but never allowing the air to become dry enough to create an undesirable condition. (Additional moisture may be required in extreme dry climates.)

  • Vibration-Free Operation
    All BREEZAIRE systems are engineered to be vibration free, hand assembled, and tested to ensure that they meet the most exacting standards. The elimination of vibration levels that may be undetectable to the owner results in wines that have greater clarity and brilliance.

  • Ultra Quiet Operation
    BREEZAIRE systems perform their task quietly and unobtrusively to preserve the atmosphere of isolation from the outside world that makes a visit to a wine cellar an unique experience.

  • Attractive Metal Cabinet
    An attractive metal cabinet that blends in with the d1/2©cor of your cellar area and can be flush mounted to any wall.

  • Ease of Installation
    BREEZAIRE's most popular systems are completely self-contained modules that are simply mounted in a wall and connected to a standard 115V AC source. No plumbing, complicated wiring or special procedures including the on-site installation of refrigerant are required.

  • Uncompromising Quality
    All BREEZAIRE systems are designed to deliver superior performance. Constructed using only the highest quality components, and hand assembly by skilled craftsmen in BREEZAIRE's U.S. production facilities.

  • Comprehensive Warranty Coverage
    Owners enjoy the security of warranty coverage that reflects BREEZAIRE's high standards.

  • Full Factory Support
    Support in the form of expertise in system selection, enclosure design, and problem solving in the highly specialized area of creating and maintaining an ideal environment for delicate products.

Excellent Service!

We needed a wine cooler unit very urgently, Benjaman answered the phone, and although they at the time didn’t have the unit I wanted in stock, he hunted for options, and found one better suited. It was delivered to our doorstep 20 hours later. He called back when he said he would also. Nothing worse when someone says that and the you end up chasing them.
Quick response and delivered the goods.
Thankful for the great service from Beverage Factory.


Does the job

I purchased this as a replacement for a15 year old unit in an enclosed wine closet. Installation was straight forward. It colds quickly with a standard amount of nose. I have it 4 stars because there is much confusion about where the condensation water will end up. There is no port and the instructions are unclear. There is also no contact information for the company. Otherwise, I do recommend it.

can your cooling unit be placed in a small area without venting elsewhere: enclosed wine closet area ?

This unit does require ventilation to operate properly.
