WhisperKOOL Extreme 5000tiR Self-Contained Cooling Unit (w/ Remote) Review
When the wine cellar is fully insulated and sealed with a proper vapor barrier (each wine cellar is unique and has specific cooling requirements; heat load calculations should always be performed prior to selecting a cooling unit), the WhisperKOOL Extreme 5000tiR Self-Contained Cooling Unit can accommodate approximately 1250 cu.ft. cellar size.
Self-contained wine cooling systems are the most economical and easiest to install. They are designed to mount between the studs of an existing wall and do not require a licensed HVACR technician for installation. One end of the system blows cool air into the cellar and the other end absorbs heat from the cellar and exhausts the heat into an area adjacent to the cellar.
The Extreme 3500tiR, 5000tiR, and 8000 tiR introduce the variable-speed fans to WhisperKOOL’s most advanced and powerful self-contained cooling system. Utilizing these fans, this high-capacity unit can maintain optimal cellar conditions. The Extreme is designed to fit between standard wall studs for a simple “through-the-wall” installation with minimal modification to an existing wall structure. Extremes can also be mounted through an exterior wall and can operate in a 110°F exhaust environment. The system is designed for powerful operation, efficiency, high reliability, and longevity with excellent performance in a wide range of working environments.
WhisperKOOL Extreme 5000tiR Self-Contained Cooling Unit is intended for through-the-wall installations. It is an “upgrade” to the Extreme ti because it uses the KDT Plus remote controller and thermostat. The duct plenums for the evaporator and condenser can be purchased separately. The controller can be mounted outside the cellar, allowing you to monitor your cellar temperature without needing to enter. The controller can be mounted up to 50 feet away from the Extreme unit.
This unit is equipped with our Remote Platinum Series controller (which can be placed up to 50 line feet from the unit) utilizing Advanced System Protection.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If this unit will be installed through an exterior wall, you will need to purchase an exterior housing to protect the unit. If this unit will be installed through an interior wall, the hot air exhaust may be redirected to another location using the condenser ducting plenum kit.

24V Thermostat Conversion Kit (OPTIONAL)
Introducing our new 24-volt thermostat conversion kit for WhisperKOOL split systems! Utilize industry-leading technology from major manufacturers to monitor the environment of your cellar. (See individual thermostat manufacturers’ websites for details.)
- Connect your thermostat to Wi‑Fi to control the temperature from your phone, tablet, or laptop.
- Monitor run time and energy usage.
- Set alarm notifications.
- View your cellar conditions from your mobile device.
The use of the 24-volt thermostat conversion kit eliminates the thermostat normally included with the system and allows your contractor to select, purchase and install the thermostat technology of your choice, including but not limited to Nest, Ecobee, and Honeywell.
By selecting the 24V Thermostat Conversion Kit, you acknowledged that the system will not be built with the standard WhisperKOOL control or liquid measuring bottle probe. You will have to source and purchase your own 24V thermostat to run the equipment.
- Not utilizing the thermostat from WhisperKOOL also eliminates the use of the bottle probe.
- WhisperKOOL does not provide smart thermostats. Those must be purchased separately.
- WhisperKOOL customer service staff do not provide technical support for customers’ selected thermostats.
