How Does an Air Handler Work?
Whether you have a furnace, air conditioner, or combo HVAC unit, the air handler inside regulates airflow and circulates cool or warm air throughout your home. It directs air in the proper direction with a blower motor or a fan using a pre-calculated rate to determine how much air you need based on your system size and the desired temperature setting.
If your air handler breaks down, your air conditioner or heater won’t be able to distribute treated air adequately. A unit that turns on, but isn't blowing any air, very likely has a broken air handler.
Common Air Handler Problems
After providing air handler repair services in the Daytona Beach area for nearly two decades, we’ve seen every AC problem under the sun. Here are the most common issues we see with air handlers:
- Dirt and dust buildup on the cooling coils.
- Air filters clogged by debris.
- Burnt out blower motors.
- Faulty or worn-out fan belts.
- Malfunctioning electrical elements.
If your air handler starts making rattling or screeching noises, stops working, or you notice a decline in indoor air quality, give us a call. We can clean your HVAC system and make sure all components of your air handler are in good shape or replace it.
Reduce dust accumulation in your HVAC system with our top-quality air filtration system installation services.
Replacement Air Handler Installation
Generally, your air handler will last just as long as your HVAC system (somewhere between 15-20 years), but sometimes damage can result in the need for early replacement. Regular maintenance and good air filtration will prolong the life of both your air handler and your heating and cooling system or systems.
Our quick installation services will ensure your system is back up and running as quickly as possible, and our flexible scheduling makes getting your air handler fixed easy.
