What Are Air Handlers(AHUs?)
Air handlers are responsible for the distribution of hot or cold air into your HVAC system. Air handlers are often enclosed in a large metal box and placed on a roof; they may also be mounted on a wall. AHUs are mainly used in larger commercial buildings and may come fitted with special dampening suspension for noise and vibration control. Air handlers typically contain several components of the HVAC unit. All of the components are eventually connected to fans and ductwork that runs through the building and back out again to the outside environment.
From the return duct (input to the AHU), to the supply duct (AHU output) the general order of operation is:
- Low-MERV, HEPA, electrostatic, or ultraviolet filters
- Heating and/or cooling elements
- Heat exchanger and HVAC air coils
- Dehumidifier (if required)
- Humidifier (if required)
- Evaporator (if required)
- Vaporizer (required)
- Mixing chamber for additional cool air (if necessary)
The above is a very simplified list. Your Express Pros engineer will be able to consult with you in a more complete and thorough manner when they arrive. Once the air has been through this complex system of mechanisms it is forced (by blowers/fans) into rooms around the building.
What Are Some Common Air Handler Problems?
There are several common issues that can cause air handlers to break down including:
- A clogged air filter
- Motor burn out
- Damage to the blower fan belts
- Pan leaks
- Drain line becoming clogged with mold or other debris
Our fully trained staff are experienced in troubleshooting all manner of AHUs and we won’t leave until the problem is fixed.
Benefits of AHU replacement
