What is the Air Handler and How Does It Affect Your Indoor Comfort?

 
The air handler works to efficiently circulate cool air throughout your home. The blower housed in the air handling unit is responsible for pulling warm air into the evaporator coil, which cools the air and then releases it through the air registers.

In order to keep the air handling unit clean and working efficiently, the air filter will need to be replaced regularly (typically every 1 to 3 months, depending on the type of filter you have and your family’s comfort level).

When dust, dirt, and other debris enter the air handler they can damage the blower and evaporator coil, resulting in system inefficiencies which can affect your comfort and indoor air quality. The air filter keeps debris from building up in the air handler and ensures the continued efficiency of your AC system.

Common Air Handler Problems

Frozen evaporator coil: Dirty air filters that lead to debris accumulating in the air handler can end up causing the evaporator coil to freeze. When this happens, airflow becomes restricted and you will experience a lack of cool air.

Loose blower wheel: Hear a loud screeching noise coming from the air handler? The blower wheel may have come loose. Turn your AC unit off to prevent further damage and contact our Culpeper County air handler repair experts for immediate inspection and repair.

Damaged blower motor: Blocked air filters can also affect the blower motor. Excess dust or dirt in your system can cause the blower to stop working efficiently, which can lead to frozen coils or damage the compressor in the outdoor unit.
