Why Is an Air Handler Important?
Air handlers are a crucial part of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems. Without an air handler, airflow through these systems would not be properly regulated or circulated. Air is pushed by a fan or blower motor through an air handler that properly directs air through your heating and cooling system. Most systems push air through at pre-calculated rates, based on the system size system and area that needs to be heated or cooled. The job of the air handler is to regulate the circulation rate and see that it is adequately distributed.
What Are Some Common Problems That Causes This Device to Break Down?
- Clogged air filters
- Cooling coils clogged by dirt and dust
- Worn or faulty fan belts
- Blower motor burn out
What Are the Benefits of Regular Inspections?
An annual inspection of a heating and cooling system is the most cost-effective method to avoid potential problems that may warrant the need for serious repairs or even having to replace the unit altogether. Blower motors burn out as the motor begins to wear. The blower motor in a heating and cooling system gets constant use, especially in large, commercial climate-controlled environments. Regular inspection of the blower motor is necessary to assess the function and efficiency of the motor, including any changes in speed and effective output of forced air through a system.
Over time, fan belts deteriorate and become faulty. The fan belt is a major part of a blower. These can also be inspected by our certified professionals. It is best to replace fan belts as soon as they begin to show signs of wear to avoid more severe complications.
Cooling coils clogged by dirt and dust should be cleaned regularly. At Daniels Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC our technicians can assess the condition of the coils and if any issues are discovered we can offer the most effective course of repair.
Air filters should be changed regularly. When a replacement is due our professionals will help you to choose the most efficient air filter for your particular system.
