Cooling Unit Buying Guide

We believe that it should be easy to research, evaluate, select and purchase a wine cellar cooling unit.

All of our cooling units are made in the USA, and are tested and certified by ETL to UL standards.  

If your wine cellar is straightforward, use the tables below to size the best wine cooling unit for your application.  

Don't risk getting the wrong cooling unit! If your wine cellar has glass (single or double pane), uninsulated concrete walls, etc. - submit our thermal load request worksheet, and we'll calculate the box load for you - free!   Save money and time by getting the right unit for your wine cellar!
