None of them make sense


Explanation:
sceller = to seal (as in sceau) or close hermetically.
sellier = saddlemaker, leather artisan

scellar was a good joke, though!

4 hrs
cellar


Explanation:
VERY LIKELY : lingerie, cellier
seems to fit your context. See following, taken from the GDT:

Le chauffe-eau doit être installé dans le volume habitable. Il convient de le revêtir d'une jaquette isolante si par nécessité il ne peut être installé que dans un volume non chauffé : cellier, cave, garage, etc.

GDT entry:
cellar
An above-ground storeroom for foodstuff or produce.


cellier n m
Pièce non voûtée, généralement fraîche, située au rez-de-chaussée d'une maison, et destinée principalement à la réception et à la conservation des vins, des denrées périssables.
Notes :
Le cellier se distingue de la cave en ce qu'il n'est pas entièrement souterrain.
Lorsqu'il s'agit d'une pièce souterraine servant de cellier, on l'appelle « cave ».
