55°F Cooling Capacity1
60°F Cooling Capacity1
The upper table is shaded to show how the AH18-24 air handler cooling systems will work at maintaining 55°F, and the lower how the AH18-24 air handler cooling systems will work at maintaining 60°F, inside the wine cellar 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.
CellarPro AH18-24 air handler cooling units are designed to maintain optimal wine storage temperatures in wine cellars up to 7500 cubic feet with adequate insulation, and can be operated with the condenser exposed to conditions up to 110°F.
(1) The thermal loads above 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) will increase the thermal load on the wine cellar. Warmer climates require higher insulation. 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.
(2) The decibels are listed for the evaporator / condensing unit, both ducted.
