WhisperKOOL Slimline LS Cooling Unit: Product Review
Last year, WhisperKOOL announced Slimline 2500 and 3300 are out, and WhisperKOOL Slimline LS from the Luxury Series (LS) is in!
WhisperKOOL has engineered a completely new design with upgraded features that give a powerful performance, silent operation, and longevity to safeguard your investment in great wine using the best available technology.
The new WhisperKOOL Slimline LS self-contained ductless cooling unit has evolved into a device that can cool in two capacities at the flick of a switch. This self-contained through-the-wall unit provides effective cooling in a compact size.
The WhisperKOOL Slimline LS has been introduced by WhisperKOOL to replace the Slimline 2500 and Slimline 3300 cooling units. WhisperKOOL has made this surprising announcement last year. The 'Slimline 2500 and Slimline 3300' will be phased out in favor of the first unit in the new Luxury Series, the 'Slimline LS'
WhisperKOOL Slimline LS Cooling Unit
Compact. Luxurious. Quiet.
The Slimline LS cooling unit is a compact, self-contained ductless cooling unit. Let’s define these terms below to get a better understanding of how this unit works.
Self-contained means the evaporator and condensing units share a single housing. In contrast to split systems, which have separate condensing and evaporator units.
The Slimline LS is ductless, which means it does not require any ductwork. Cool air goes into the wine cellar through the evaporator and heated air is vented out into an adjacent room or unused space through the condenser. Ductless WhisperKOOL wine cooling systems are designed to be installed through the wall.

NEW INTERNAL PARTS

INTERCHANGEABLE DECORATIVE PANEL
The system is meant to provide a customizable decorative panel above the cellar doorway, allowing clients to create a distinctive look.
UV LIGHT TECHNOLOGY
The UV light technology is an added optional feature to protect your wine cellar cooling system from bacteria and mold. It enhances overall indoor air quality while also improving the unit's performance.
This may be an optional feature, but adding UV light technology to the cooling unit enhances overall indoor air quality and unit performance. The UV light upgrade protects the unit against mold and other bacteria from developing. Here are some of the benefits of UV light technology:
- Prevents the growth of mold inside the system.
- Eliminates pathogen and lowers allergen levels in the wine cellar.
- Eliminates odors and unpleasant smells that are associated with mold and bacterial growth.
- Maintains a cleaner and healthier cooling system, keeping the unit operating at optimal efficiency.
