How Do Air Handlers Work?
Air handlers circulate and condition the air inside your HVAC system. Simply put, the air handler distributes the air throughout your home or building. This unit helps provide you with warm and cool air, depending on the season.
The air handler also makes a significant contribution to your HVAC system’s efficiency. If your air handler is working properly, your outdoor AC or heating unit will not have to work as hard to keep the home comfortable.
Air handlers are also known as air handling units or AHUs. They are made up of several components, including:
- Heating and cooling elements
- Heat recovery devices
- Vibration isolators
- Mixing chambers
We like to refer to the air handler as the heartbeat of the HVAC system. If the unit is interrupted or clogged, then the air system inside your entire property will also slow down or stop.
Common Causes of Air Handler Breakdowns
Air handlers are designed to last 10 to 20 years. However, there are a number of factors that can cause this unit to break down, including:
- Dust, dirt, and other debris that can clog the filter or evaporator coil
- Blower motor failure
- Lack of maintenance
Exposure to outdoor elements is another common cause of air handler breakdowns. Over time, moisture from the air will begin to build up and contain heat, which is the perfect breeding ground for molds and mildew.
Benefits of Professional Air Handler Service
If there is a problem with your air handler, make sure to have it repaired or replaced as soon as possible. Your HVAC system cannot function properly if there is a problem with your air handler. You may not need to get your entire HVAC system replaced if you perform regular air handler service.
Air handlers that are not properly maintained have a tendency to accumulate mold and mildew. Those things can be circulated throughout the building, which can lead to poor indoor air quality. It can also put your health at risk.
