BTU Wizard

Our BTU Wizard will walk you through a series of questions about your cellar project and will help you size and select the proper cooling system. If you have any questions or need any assistance, contact us at 1-855-235-5271 or by using our contact form.

Please Note: There are several factors such as glass, stone, concrete, etc. which will change the required btu amount needed to properly cool your wine room. Under sizing your cooling unit can lead to pre-mature failure and/or prevent the system from reaching the desired set temperature.

*Change any default values to your specific climate needs.
