An air handler, also known as an air handler unit (AHU), may not be as familiar to you as a furnace or air conditioner, but for many Wheatland, California, homes, and all other surrounding cities, it is an essential component of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system.
If you currently have a heat pump or stand-alone air conditioner in your home, you may already have an air handler as part of your system and not even be aware of it.
At Your Team Heating and Air Conditioning, we can help you with your air handler. If you are considering purchasing and installing one, repairing yours, or scheduling maintenance for it, our highly trained and experienced team of HVAC professionals is always here to help.
What Is an Air Handler?
An air handler distributes conditioned air throughout your home, ensuring you achieve the level of comfort you want. This HVAC unit is typically found inside your Wheatland home as part of your split-system air conditioner or heat pump.
Some homeowners mistake an air handler for a furnace because it resembles a furnace’s box-like case. These air handler cases house a blower, air filter, and evaporator coil, with terminal units as the most common air handler type. They can also contain such components as heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, dampers, and sound attenuators.
The blower pushes the conditioned air from inside your air handler through your home, using your home’s ductwork. The air filter removes contaminants from your air. And the indoor coil works to keep your air at the temperature you set with your thermostat or control system.
Do You Need an Air Handler?
An air handler can help boost your Wheatland home’s comfort level. If you currently have or are planning on installing a heat pump or air conditioner, an air handler is a necessary component to circulate your heated or cooled air, depending on the season.
Additionally, an air handler aids in air filtration and humidity control, which optimizes your heating and cooling system’s efficiency. Some models can even assist in your indoor air quality (IAQ). The more efficient your air handler is, the less work your heat pump or air conditioner needs to do, saving you in energy costs as well as helping extend your system’s life span.
