HVAC Air Handler Installations & Repairs in Austin, TX
How Your Air Handler Works
The air handler features the evaporator coil, blower, and air filter. The blower is responsible for pulling warm air into your system, where it’s eventually cooled by the evaporator coil. The newly cooled air is then sent out through the supply vents.
If the air filter is blocked, it will affect the performance of the evaporator coil and the blower, leading to cooling inefficiencies. Replacing the air filter regularly will help keep your air handling unit and the rest of your HVAC system operating efficiently.
Common Problems Affecting Air Handlers
Damaged blowers: If dirt, dust, and debris continue to build up in your air handler due to a blocked air filter, it will eventually cause damage to the blower.
Frozen evaporator coils: Blocked air filters can also cause the evaporator coil to freeze, which will result in a lack of cool air in your home.
Loose fan belts: Are you hearing loud and unusual sounds coming from your air handling unit? This could point to a problem with the fan belt. We can help you resolve the problem quickly by replacing loose or broken fan belts.
Refrigerant leaks: If a large amount of refrigerant ends up leaking inside your home, it can affect your health. Leaking refrigerant is often caused by corrosion in older systems.
