2,800 BTU Ductless Split System Wine Cooling Unit

Specify Model:

Wine Guardian's ductless split system provides superb air distribution and temperature control for optimal conditioning of your valuable wine collection. The extremely quiet and virtually vibration-free system offers flexibility in system location and cellar designs. It is versatile enough for either surface-mounting or through-the-wall mounting and ideal for small wine cellars which have no room for mechanical equipment or are unable to accommodate duct-work. The unit offers 2,800 BTUH and can cool up to a 1,200 cubic foot enclosure.

The ductless split system operates in ambient temperatures between 40°F and 115°F (4°C and 46°C) and the condenser unit has a cover that is suitable for outdoor use. The Low Ambient option protects your wine collection from low (below 40°F to a minimum of -20°F) ambient temperatures. And just like all Wine Guardian products, it is certified by ETL to UL and CSA standards for safety and performance.

The Wine Guardian cooling unit is a professional, USA manufacturered, split system 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 together. 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 split system unit includes a fan coil unit (evaporator) and condensing system. The two units are connected with coolant lines that carry cooled refrigerant from the condenser to the fan coil and heated refrigerant back to the condenser to be cooled down again. The fan coil unit is designed to be used either as a free blowing, through the wall unit or as a remote mount unit.

  • Factory Tested - All Wine Guardian units are factory run-tested and checked for operational performance
  • Humidity Option - The optional humidifier comes fully assembled and tested for field installation onto the Wine Guardian without any additional electrical power wiring. It automatically adds moisture into the cellar by the evaporation of water over a distribution pad. A cellar mounted digital electronic humidistat automatically controls the amount of moisture added.
  • Interal Drain Trap - Water condensate from the evaporator coil fills the trap and forms a seal to prevent air from being drawn back through the drain tube. This allows the drain pan to drain freely. No external trap ix required.
  • Refrigerant Circuit - The factory charged circuit includes a thermal expansion valve with an external eqaulizer, slight glass with moisture indicator, a filter dryer, an automatic low pressure switch, and a manually reset high pressure switch. For the low ambient option, an automatic pressure switch controls the operation of the condenser blower and a heating element is added to the compressor oil reservoir.
