Comments about WhisperKOOL Platinum Extreme 8000ti Wine Cellar Cooling Unit (Max Room Size = 2000 cu ft):
I had a WK6000 that had been installed on the outside of my home, after the first year or two during the summer it seemed to struggle to keep my cellar at 57 degrees. One day I walked through the cellar door I noticed that the temp was warm. I saw ice covering the front of the cooler. I had the service guy out, he couldn't fix it here so he took it back to the shop, He called later and said I had two choices, pay $800 or so to repair it or get a new unit.
Since it had been years since I even looked at the back of it let alone vacuum it he said it was packed with dirt, a fan was out and there was a leak and the refrigerant was low. The neglect and hot summers took a toll on the cooler. I decided that replacing it made more sense, I could get the same cooler but with all things considered I opted for the 8000ti. It fit in the same opening as the 6000 so I didn't need to modify the opening. It can be over 100 or freezing, the cooler comes on when it needs to so that my wine stays at 57 degrees.
Yes, it did cost much more than the 6000 but considering the investment that I have in my cellar why should I take a chance with a unit that was not designed for my cellar.
