What is an Air Handler?
We get that question a lot. Air handlers are a crucial part of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems that keeps everything working the way it should: moving air! Without an air handler, airflow through these systems would not be properly regulated or circulated.
So how do they work? Air is pushed by a fan or blower motor through an air handler that properly directs air through your heating and cooling system. Most systems push air through at pre-calculated rates, based on the system size and area that needs to be heated or cooled.
To recap, the job of the air handler is to regulate the circulation rate and see that it is adequately distributed through your house.
While air handlers are vital to your system, if other parts of the system are dirty, clogged, or broken, this may cause greater damage to the system as a whole. Be sure to look into air filter replacement to ensure you catch a problem before it affects the rest of the system. Let us help you make your air quality and ventilation system is the best that it can be.
It is best to get your system checked regularly so that HVAC experts have eyes on your system routinely to check the details. Schedule an AC maintenance visit today.
