    7156 SENSIBLE BTUH @ 55F. CellarPro's AH8500Sx-ECC ducted cooling units (1 Ton Nominal) are engineered for wine cellars up to 2,500* cubic feet in both commercial and residential wine cellars. When ducted, this unit uses 10-inch insulated ducting on the cold side, and exterior grills on the hot side.

    This unit maintains optimal cellar temperature and humidity conditions in extreme conditions up to 110F. AH8500Sx units use energy-efficient EC fans and are significantly quieter than comparable units from other brands. Visit our Learning Center for data tables, performance charts and product comparisons among different brands.

    In the event that the condensing unit will be exposed to or pulling air that is below 40F, a Compressor Heater (P/N 1727) is included with this outdoor unit to protect the compressor. For installation of the condensing unit in environments below 20F down to -20F, our Fan Cycling Switch (P/N 6972) is required in addition to the Compressor Heater, and Electronic Configuration is required.

    Visit our Learning Center for data tables, performance charts and product comparisons among different brands.

    Assuming R19 insulation throughout the cellar, 55F inside the cellar and 85F outside the cellar. Cold-side ducting, glass and/or uninsulated walls, extreme humidity, altitude and other factors may affect the sizing calculation.

    Please note: Our units were not designed for, and our warranty does not cover damage from, marine exposure (within 5 miles of the ocean). In these environments, you will need an applied coating, such as Insitu®, to protect against corrosion that is common in coastal regions.

    Our cooling units are designed to be used in properly-constructed wine cellars that are adequately insulated, airtight and sealed with a vapor barrier. In improperly-constructed cellars, the cooling unit will create excess condensation, leading to damage and premature failure of your cooling unit (not covered by warranty).


    CellarPro AH8500Sx-ECC Cooling Unit (P/N 36023). CellarPro engineered the AH8500Sx-ECC ducted cooling system to provide maximum cooling power and adjustable humidity control for cellars up to 2,500 cubic feet with the condensing unit located in an exterior environment. The evaporator and the condensing unit each can be ducted up to 100 equivalent feet (50 equivalent feet per duct.) As a split system, the evaporator can be separated from the condensing unit up to 100 feet, allowing the noise and heat from the condensing unit to be located away from interior living areas. The AH8500Sx-ECC includes a quieter, energy-efficient EC fan on the hot side with a low setting for quieter operation and a high setting for maximum power.

    All air-cooled refrigeration equipment requires fresh air intake to dissipate the heat generated by the cooling unit. The fresh air intake CANNOT come from the wine cellar space - it must come from space outside the cellar.

    • Now with a quieter, energy-efficient EC Fans on the hot side save $150.39 in annual energy costs vs dual AC fans (assumes 75% runtime and $0.15/kWh)
    • CellarPro Air Handlers are engineered to be ducted with 10-inch insulated ducting on the cold side (evaporator) allowing the equipment can be located away from the wine cellar so that space inside the cellar can be maximized for wine storage and racking.
    • Split systems are designed to separate the evaporator from the condensing unit up to 100 feet.
    • AH8500Sx-ECC condensing units can be placed outdoors, thereby separating the heat and noise from interior living spaces.
    • Our exterior Air Handler condensing unit includes an exterior housing for protection against the elements, and a compressor heater that provides protection in temperatures down to 20F.
    • High-output fans provide more airflow and variable speed settings for your choice of cooling power.
    • Optional integrated humidifier provides the ultimate control of moisture levels inside your cellar.
    • Optional integrated heater provides heat for wine cellars that are exposed to temperatures below 55F.
    • Extra-large coils generate maximum cooling power inside the cellar.
    • Excess condensate is managed through a 1/2" drain line that exits from a choice of knockouts in the evaporator.
    • Commercial-grade Electrofin coating protects the evaporator coils from leaks and corrosion.
    • Intuitive LED display panel mounted on the evaporator with digital programmable thermostat is simple and easy to use. Remote thermostat is available as an upgrade.
