AH8500: Sizing Table - Wine Cellars 2250-2750 cubic ft
55°F Cooling Capacity1
60°F Cooling Capacity1
The upper table is shaded to show how the AH8500 air handler cooling system will work at maintaining 55°F, and the lower table at maintaining 60°F, inside the wine cellar using various fan speeds 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 AH8500 air handler cooling systems are designed to maintain optimal wine storage temperatures in wine cellars up to 2500 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 and will require the cooling unit to operate at higher fan speeds. Warmer climates require higher insulation to enable the cooling unit to operate at lower fan speeds. 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 unt, both ducted.
