Difference Between an Air Conditioner and an Air Handler
Repairing or replacing your AC or its parts can be a complex job. The different components and terminology can confuse many homeowners. An air handler contains all the components that move the air through your home. This handler is usually found inside your home and operates all of the heating and cooling components of your air conditioning systems. Your air handler may look somewhat like a furnace. Air handlers contain the indoor coils which heat and cool your home.
If you’re still confused about the different parts in your air conditioning system, give us a call. Our knowledgeable technicians can answer your questions and provide you with an inspection to determine if you’re in need of air handler service.
Your HVAC system’s air handler has mechanical components that are required for the proper functioning of your system. There are certain issues that you may be able to fix yourself, however, some of these common issues will require you to call a specialist. Here are some common problems your air handler may experience:
BLOWER MOTOR FAILURE
- Blower motor failure requires the assistance of a professional air conditioning specialist. There are several reasons why your blower motor may fail, however, a technician can identify the problem and decide which parts may need to be replaced.
IRREGULAR FILTER MAINTENANCE - Your air handler is the unit which air flows through. Regular filter changes will help you maintain airflow through your air handler and keep it free of debris and dust. This also keeps your coils clean.
CLUTTERED AIRFLOW PATH - Just like your filter requires regular maintenance to ensure good airflow, keeping the area around your air handler clean and free of dust and debris can keep your components free of clogs and functioning properly.
