Air Handlers

The job of the handler is to circulate the air throughout your home. The indoor air handler unit comprises an air filter, coil, and blower. The handler pulls air in, passes it over the coils (to cool or heat), and then blows it back out into the home through the duct system. Basically, it’s the part of the AC system that ensures the treated air reaches all of your home.

An air handler most commonly works with a heat pump to circulate air throughout your home. If you’re searching for a traditional air conditioner or furnace, you won’t need an air handler as those systems have the internal parts needed to circulate air.

Regular maintenance will include cleaning the air handler condensate drain and coils, lubrication, straightening the coils, and checking the wiring.

Depending on your air filter’s capture rate, you can remove mold, pet dander, and even bacteria from your home or office’s air for healthier breathing.

You will also need to change your air handler filter every 1-3 months or more, depending on your indoor air quality. The filter is located between the return air duct and the air handler and prevents particles from flowing into the unit. Depending on your air filter’s capture rate, you can remove mold, pet dander, and even bacteria from your home’s air for healthier breathing.
