Walk-in Cooler in Basement – Using a Coolbot
I have recently been tasked with constructing a walk-in cooler in the basement of an older building to hold beer kegs. The owner would like to utilize a CoolBot controller combined with either a window unit AC or a mini-split. The most affordable option would be the window unit type ac, but I have some questions about placement. The plan is for the cooler to be built inside of a larger room within the basement. With this cooler being in an old windowless basement, the supply air would be coming from the larger room within the basement, cooling the inside of the cooler. Do you foresee any issues with this? The other alternative that I see would be to install a mini-split with the condenser sitting outside of the building. Thoughts?
