What Is an Air Handler?

Your air conditioner has two main parts: the “condenser” sits outside and releases heat from your home back into nature, and the inside unit (the “handler”) is relatively small and can usually be found in an attic or small closet. This air handler moves cooled air through the ductwork in your home and contains a blower along with some other cooling elements.

Signs Your Air Handler Needs Service

Even a new AC can have trouble with the air handler, making your home continue to feel warm, no matter how much you crank the thermostat. Here are a few signs that the problem could be as simple as your air handler:

  • No air from vents – If you hear the AC unit kick on but don’t feel a change in temperature or airflow from the vents, the blower could be to blame.
  • Dirty filters – A dirty air filter will cause significant problems by overworking your HVAC unit, causing components to break.
  • Frozen lines or coils – Ice from the air handler indicates a malfunctioning blower. Your AC should keep you cold, not freeze itself! 

If any of these signs are familiar, call 843-981-0660 or contact us online today for air handler service and AC repair in Charleston, SC!

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Handlers

What is an air handler used for?

Air handlers circulate air around your home through ductwork. An air handler is installed inside and works in conjunction with an outdoor air conditioning and/or heat pump condenser unit helping to make the air hot or cold.

What is the difference between an air conditioner and an air handler?

Air handlers move air around. They aren’t involved with temperature control. Air conditioners are designed only to cool air by absorbing heat and releasing it back outdoors.

How long does an air handler last?

The life span of an air handler is determined by climate, the quality of the install, and how well it is maintained. They typically last between 10 and 15 years.
