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 filters, heating and cooling elements, heat recovery devices, blowers, fans, vibration isolators, mixing chambers, and humidifiers.
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.Learn More
What Caused Your Air Handler To Break Down?
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.
Exposure to outdoor elements is one of the most common causes of air handler breakdowns. Air has moisture. Over time, this moisture will begin to build up and contain heat. Bacteria thrives in warm and moist environments, and this thriving bacteria can turn into mildew and mold. As a result, even if your air handler is properly maintained, it can still be negatively impacted by outdoor elements.
What Are the 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 your 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.
