CellarPro Air Handler 8500 Horizontal (P/N AH8500SCh). CellarPro Air Handler ducted refrigeration systems can be ducted up to a total of 100 equivalent feet (supply + return)

CellarPro Air Handler evaporator and condenser both use variable-speed centrifugal fans with three settings, including a "high" setting for maximum performance and a "low" setting for super-quiet operation. CellarPro AH8500SC evaporator produce 51 decibels and condenser produce 59 decibels (ducted at the medium fan speed.

Our high-performance Air Handlers are designed to handle environments ranging from . Exposure on the condenser side to temperatures below 40°F require our compressor heater ($99), and, in addition, below 20°F require our low ambient temperature kit ($199). The evaporator cannot be exposed to freezing temperatures. Click here to view sizing table

7156 BTUH. Designed for wine cellars up to 2500 cubic feet and rated for internal applications, CellarPro's Air Handler 8500SCh refrigeration system is a completely self-contained ducted system specifically designed for wine cellars, and is ready to use out of the box.

When NOT ducted, our evaporator and condenser require 12 inches of unobstructed space and approx. 600-700 CFM of ventilation when installed in a confined space.

CellarPro's horizontal configuration allows multiple ducting alternatives, as follows.

  • Collars or grills for EXHAUST (ie Supply) are located at the front (shown at left), top or rear of the cooling system, and are interchangeable to meet your specific requirement.
  • Collars or grills for INTAKE (ie Return) are located at each end (left: evaporator, and right: condenser), and include professional-grade air filters to protect the unit.
A bottle probe temperature sensor (10' cord) plus your choice of duct collars, indoor grills and blank plates is included in the price of the cooling system.

CellarPro Air Handlers use two 110V / 60Hz plug-in power cords, as follows:
  1. One cord for the compressor, which pulls 11.2 amps and requires a dedicated 20 amp circuit breaker
  2. One cord for the rest of the components, which pull 5.7 amps and require a dedicated 15 amp circuit breaker
Humidification systems and heating systems for low ambient conditions can be factory-installed at an additional cost.

Important Notes: For exposure to environments below 40°F, our compressor heater modification is required. For use in temperatures below 20°F, in addition to the compressor heater, our fan cycling switch is required.

Ducting of cold supply/return air will result in additional heat loss and loss of cooling unit efficiency. Please use our ducting heat loss table and our duct correction table when sizing the cooling unit.

Shipping: We charge a flat-rate of $195 to ship these units anywhere in the continental U.S. via common carrier, strapped to a pallet, with curbside delivery.
