    Interesting setup. I'd be concerned about humidity being to low and drying out the corks although i guess if the fan runs constantly it might be ok. We usually shoot for a min/max of 60/65% at 50/60 degrees

    Condensing unit looks great , secure mounting , nice piping , electric , insulated liquid line.

    But I gotta ask , why the plasic air handler?

    Surely thats not a match.

    Why not a unit cooler evaporator?

    Just asking.

    A txv mini split?

    How did it perform and did the start up go well?

    You can interface a conventional thermostat to one of those asian deals?

    I know the unit coolers are not as pretty , but that would be the correct indoor section.

    You gotta fill us in Loonie.

    When I installed it I used a Digital t87 the cellar was a custom cherry wood and the carpenter under the specs of the a hole designer put wine racks right to the bottom of the air handle without chopping out the racks we can never pull it off the wall if needed they also came down to the top and its a pain to even pull the filter

    How's it working? I just bid one something like that and a little nervous cause I've never used this manufacturer before.

    Apparently your customer purchased it and you installed it. Are the refrigerant lines going up at all. This manufacturer I'm mayber going to use instists that, for the most part, the refrigerant lines do not form an oil trap with refrigerant lines sloped up.

    Is there a manufacturers name associated with this set-up? Looks like the lines/power are running in PVC?

    I got away from using unit strut or bolting anything to the wine cooler walls as there was always some noise transmission. I've use multi-layers of plywood with the all thread running directly through the plywood hanging without any braces on the ends. Never had a problem with noise since then.

    The installer may be along, I told him I put the pix up.

    He likes running lines in a PVC pipe through a ceiling. They were near 30' long I believe. The sealtite for the romex just goes up to the ceiling.

    They are WAY quieter and more attractive than a commercial evap.

    The TXV was added to a modified minisplit evap

    I've installed lots of these, installation and startup is simple, only PITA is if you have to adj. SH.
