(1) The table is shaded to show which cooling units will work at 55°F and 60°F under various thermal loads. The thermal loads are derived from assumptions about the size of the cellar; the R-value in the six cellar surfaces (ie walls, floor and ceiling) and the ambient temperature outside the cellar.
Cells shaded blue indicate loads that exceed the capacity of the cooling units shown in this table.
We provide the estimated thermal loads for various-size wine cellars across a range of ambient temperatures and with different R-Values to help you select the appropriate CellarPro wine cooling unit for your cellar. The thermal loads are calculated based on the R-Values shown for all walls and ceiling, and a concrete floor. Lower R-Values in the cellar (eg from glass doors or uninsulated concrete walls) will increase the thermal load on the wine cellar. To be certain that the thermal load won't exceed the capacity of the cooling unit, email your wine cellar specifications to us and we'll be glad to assist you.
