Air Handlers

The air handler is a crucial component of any HVAC system. After all, there's no point in cooling your air if it's not then circulated effectively around your living spaces. This indoor unit gets the air flowing and keeps you comfortably cool on those warm summer days.

So how does an air handler work?

An air-handling unit includes a blower, heating and/or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, and dampers. They usually connect to the ductwork that distributes conditioned air through the building and returns it to the air handler for more heating or cooling.

  • 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.

Eliminate air handler issues before they happen

Whether it's part of your furnace or a stand-alone unit, it's important to change your filters regularly in order to maintain your air handler's effectiveness. Beyond that, you should also have your entire system inspected and maintained by a professional each year to make sure that any potential problems are caught before they become more significant (and more expensive to repair!).
