Air Conditioning Air Handling units
We Specialize in Getting the Cool Air to You.
An air handler is the indoor unit that provides conditioned air circulation through your home.
An air handling unit includes a blower, heating and/or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to ductwork that distributes the conditioned air through the building and returns it to the air handler.
If you have a forced air furnace, the air handler is the part that blows the hot air out. It probably also circulates cooled air from your air conditioner.
If you don’t have a furnace, you may have a stand-alone air handler to blow cool air from your air conditioner and/or hot air from your heat pump through your home’s ductwork.
Air Handler Care.
Changing your filters regularly is the key maintenance for your air handler, whether it's part of your furnace or a stand-alone unit. You should also have your entire HVAC system inspected and maintained by a professional each year to catch any small problems before they become big.
