Air handlers are an integral part of any HVAC system. Usually, an air handler is a large metal box inside your home (often in a closet), containing a blower, heating and/or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators and dampers. Air handlers generally connect to ductwork that distributes the conditioned air through the home unless attached to a ductless split system.
What’s in an Air Handler?
A typical air handler will include the following components:
- Heating and/or cooling elements
- Mixing chamber
- Vibration isolators
If even one of these parts is functioning poorly or failing, your entire air conditioning system, including the air handler, will not work. If you need maintenance or repairs done to your air handler, you can trust the team at Elmer’s One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning to get your system running as fast as possible.
