Platinum Split 8000
2000 Cubic Feet


  • BTU/H: 3073 – 4798
  • Dimensions: * Evaporator: 13”L x 20”W x 10.5”H * Condenser: 13.97”L x 15.85”W x 9.86”H
  • Self Contained, Ducted Split Wine Cooling Unit
SKU: S-WKPS8000-220 Categories: ,

Described in the simplest terms, a Whisperkool 8000 split system is a cooling unit wherein the evaporator unit and condensing unit have been “split” into two separate units instead of being contained within the same housing. The evaporator unit is located in or near your cellar, and the condensing unit is generally located outside, or in an attic or utility room.

Whisperkool 8000 Platinum Split System allows you to decide where the evaporator unit and the condensing unit will be located. The condensing unit can be located up to 100 ft. away from the evaporator unit. The evaporator unit will be mounted in the cellar or it can also be located nearby with ducting.

Whisperkool 8000 Platinum Split Installation

If you don’t mind seeing the grille of your cooling unit in your cellar, a wall-mounted split system is what you need. If you prefer your unit to be out of sight, you should get a fully ducted split system. The choice is yours.

Note: A qualified HVAC-R technician is required for installation of Whisperkool 8000. Failure to install the system by a qualified technician will void the warranty.

*PLEASE NOTE: WhisperKOOL does not provide a smart thermostat. By selecting the 24V Thermostat Conversion Kit, you have acknowledged that the system will not be built with the standard WhisperKOOL control or liquid measuring bottle probe. To run the equipment, you will have to source and purchase your own 24V smart thermostat. The WhisperKOOL Customer Satisfaction Team does not provide technical support for smart thermostats.

3576 – 4834

The BTU/h value range shown here is a theoretical number. There are often circumstances under which a cellar design may require a larger unit due to variables not accounted for in the formula. For example, these variables could be building materials (such as glass, stone, concrete, etc.) which do not offer the insulation capacity required to maintain the optimal cellar environment. We recommend purchasing a unit with a larger capacity to compensate for these unaccounted-for variables. An undersized unit can lead to premature failure and will most likely prevent the cellar from reaching your desired temperature.
