Air handlers control the flow and circulation of air from your HVAC system. They are housed in a metal container with a blower, heating and cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, and dampers.
When they malfunction, the conditioned air cannot travel through your home's ventilation system, resulting in cooler or warmer temperatures than you would like. Below are some of the signs you might see if your air handler needs to be repaired.
Condensate Leaks. Excess condensation is a common sign of an air handler in need of repair. Check the condensate pan for excess moisture. In some cases, algae can build up in the drain line, causing the pan to overflow.
Incorrect Fuses. Fuses that are incorrectly sized can cause motor damage, so make sure that the disconnect fuses and overload heaters are sized accordingly.
Dirty Compartments. Dirty blower compartments can contaminate air quality. For best results, schedule regular, seasonal cleanings for your air handler. Regular maintenance will also help prevent mold growth.
