We are pleased to announce that, going forward, we will offer two types of condensate drain line modifications for customers who purchase CellarPro 1800* wine cooling units. When these cooling units will be installed in wine cellars (as opposed to wine cabinets), we strongly recommend adding one of these modifications.
- Condensate Drain Line - Our 1/2″ ID fitting and drain line provide a path for excess condensation to exit from inside the cooling unit. The condensate drain line exits from the rear of the cooling unit, and should be drained into a bucket or drain. Instead of the heating element, we include a “hot gas loop” that should evaporate approximately 3 oz per hour.
- Condensate Drain Line + Heating Element - Same os the condensate drain line, we add a 100W heating element (which replaces the hot gas loop) that should evaporate approximately 6 oz per hour.
The heating element upgrade makes sense for high-humidity environments, and/or wine cellars with compromised moisture barriers, and/or environments that cannot accommodate the drain line.
We reduced the price of the condensate drain line (which previouslywas offered as our “Wine Cellar Modification”) from $100 to $75. The price of the condensate drain line + heating element is $150.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our products.
* Please note: A condensate drain line and heating element are standard in larger CellarPro cooling units, such as our 3200VS and 4200VS cooling units.
