WhisperKOOL Phantom 3500 Fully Ducted Self-Contained System 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 Phantom 3500 Fully Ducted Self-Contained System can accommodate approximately 800 cu.ft. cellar size.
The Phantom Series combines powerful cooling capacity with flexible installation options. If space is at a premium in your cellar and you need a powerful, fully ducted unit, the Phantom might be for you. The Phantom’s powerful blowers can be reoriented to the right, left, or top of the unit. This grants you the option of installing the unit in any ducting configuration that best suits your needs, even in limited space.
The unit is intended to be installed in an attic or a utility room adjacent to the cellar. This system uses WhisperKOOL’s liquid-temperature-measuring bottle probe. By monitoring liquid temperature instead of air temperature, the bottle probe ensures that your wine cellar maintains optimal wine-aging conditions. The Phantom combines sleek, modern design with quietness, customizable installation options, and proven performance.

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.
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.
UV Lighting System (OPTIONAL)
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is a disinfection method that uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill microorganisms such as fungus, mold, mildew, and bacteria. The application of UVGI to disinfection has been an accepted practice since the 1950s and is used in a variety of applications such as food, air, and water purification. In recent years, UVGI has found renewed application in air purifiers.
AddingUV lighting to a cooling unit increases overall indoor air quality while improving the performance of the unit. Specifically, the UV light option will protect your unit from mold and other bacterial growth.
HOW DOES UV LIGHT WORK?
Commonly used in HVAC application, this UV disinfection method uses short-wavelength ultraviolet (UV-C) light to kill microorganisms. When exposed to UV-C, DNA begins to degrade and eventually becomes so damaged that it is no longer usable. As mold, fungus, or bacteria are exposed to UV-C, their DNA degrades until they are no longer able to reproduce, and they eventually die. While UV-C light ranges from 200 to 300 nm, our UV-C light uses an optimal frequency of 254 nm.
HOW DOES UV LIGHTING WORK WITH PHANTOM UNITS?
Air handlers are particularly susceptible to microorganism growth. Fungus, mold, and bacteria can be pulled in from the cellar or outside. Once inside the unit, the organisms have a perfect place to grow due to the moisture built up in the compartment; from there, the organisms are pushed back into the cellar. Our UV lighting system is designed as an add-on feature that will target the buildup of these microorganisms.
The bulb is positioned inside the evaporator compartment such that the evaporator coil and drip tray are exposed directly to UV light to ensure that these components stay unclogged and are running at optimal efficiency, which improves overall system performance. The transformer box and UV bulb can be mounted to any access panel on the evaporator side of the cooling unit, depending on the blower orientation. With this arrangement, the UV light never comes into contact with wine bottles in the cellar.

Very nice customer service. David helped me with choosing the right cooling unit for the size of my cellar which is roughly 745 cu ft. I had no clue there are a lot of options. That is why I am very thankful that David was patient and knows what he is talking about.
I search for a cooler unit and after looking to different sites I choose wine coolers empire to help me, thanks to their experience in no time they found me the right unit to take care of my cellar. They gave me an ETA and the unit arrive on time. The delivery guy contact me and he also helped me to set the unit in my garage.
Customer service is really responsive and helped me purchase my first cooling unit. I was not sure which one to get for my cellar, just a small one.
