    Good Wine Cooler units

    Hey guys which Wine cellar units do you guys like? I have a customer with a Bacchus unit that is only a few years old that is mounted on ceiling of wine cooler which is right below the master bed room. So they get the fan noise. He said even new it was not quiet. Another problem going on is the Humidifier on this unit it is a mist unit which spays the water residue all over one half of the coil. I told him that the humidifier on this is shortening the life of the unit. I did install a humid pro cartridge to cut down on the residue.
    He is open to changing out the indoor unit to a quieter system.
    Indoor Bacchus BCS1000Chill
    basement mounted condenser Danfoss HCGC0050RC0045B.
    Here is picture of the coil.

    There is only one truly right way to do something, but there are thousands of wrong ways to varying degrees to do it.
    So the question is: If you don't do it right, then how wrong is it going to be???

    I seen some mini split air handler's hooked into some commercial refer condenser's. I think they were custom units with txv's and your typical refer air bulb stat with 120v always on fan. They were quiet.

    The CellarCool units look like the whisperKool units.
    Thanks that give us alternatives to look at.

    I’ve worked on a quite a few of them and sold one as a replacement.
    That’s the only wine cooler I’m selling from now on.

    Not as quiet as the mini split type at 43db vs 51db for the wispercool.
