Air Handlers


What Is An Air Handler?

An air handler is the part of your HVAC system that regulates and circulates air through your home’s ducts. In traditional heating systems, the air handler is a component of the furnace. Any heating system that doesn’t burn fuel, such as heat pumps or geothermal systems, requires a separate air handling unit to filter, regulate and circulate the air.

Servicing And Maintaining The Air Handler

Without an air handler, heated or cooled air won’t reach the inside of your home. This makes it a critical part of any well functioning HVAC system. Air Handlers require regular inspection and maintenance to ensure efficient performance of your home’s HVAC system. This should be performed annually by a licensed AC Technician.

What You Can Do

Regular inspection and replacement of your HVAC System’s air filter can prevent it from becoming clogged. A clogged filter forces the air handler to work harder to move air, thereby increasing your utility bills and shortening its lifespan.
