Air handler problems arise from time to time for just about everyone, but properly resolving them can be easier said than done. Instead of attempting to fix the problem yourself, let Barstow and Sons go to work for you.

If your air conditioning unit isn’t working properly, it may not be the unit itself; it may be your air handler. Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t understand how and why an air handler functions and are quick to invest in a full system replacement. Our team can diagnose any problem quickly and precisely, ensuring you get the service you need—and not just the easiest option.

What is an air handler?

An air handler is the unit that physically circulates air through your home, working with both heating and cooling components to distribute comfortable air at your desired temperature. Air handlers often look similar to furnaces and contain indoor coils, which are used to heat or cool your home depending on which part of your HVAC system you are using at any given time.

An air handler doesn’t produce heat or cold air; it simply transfers it through your ductwork and into the rooms of your home. Air handlers aren’t common in all kinds of HVAC systems—a conventional furnace or A/C unit likely will have a blower—but air handlers are common with electric heat pumps.

Common air handler problems

Like all aspects of your HVAC unit, problems are always a possibility when it comes to your air handler. With age, regular use, and improper cleaning or maintenance, there are plenty of things that can go wrong with your air handler, including:

  • Clogs and challenges in the pathway that can compromise airflow
  • Blower motor failure
  • Filtration challenges

If you are having issues with air distribution in your home, the air handler may be to blame. With help from Barstow and Sons, you can rest easy knowing your HVAC systems are always in good hands.
