When Do I Need an Air Handler?

Air handlers use blowers to circulate warm and cool conditioned air through your air ducts, bringing your home to thermostat temperature. They help ensure your home has adequate ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ).

If your Brandywine, MD, home relies on a heat pump instead of a furnace or boiler to keep you warm in the winter, you know the importance of a quality air handler.

Are you building a new home or upgrading? According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), pairing a high-efficiency heat pump with an air handler is a much greener HVAC alternative to a gas furnace.

What Is a Dual-Fuel System?

Install a heat pump and air handler for your air conditioning and heating needs—but keep your gas furnace. On moderately cold days, use the heat pump to keep you warm. On super cold days, fire up the gas furnace! A dual-fuel system saves homeowners plenty of money in the long run.

How Does an Air Handler Work?

The air handler blows treated air from your heat pump into your living space. Inside this unit, you’ll find four main components: the blower, evaporator coil, sound attenuators, and filters:

  • The blower is a motor-driven fan that circulates air.
  • The evaporator coil is responsible for manipulating heat to warm or cool the air.
  • The sound attenuators muffle noise coming from your ductwork.
  • The filters catch dust and debris, protecting your equipment and boosting IAQ.

When Should I Replace My HVAC System?

Most HVAC systems last between 10 to 15 years. Any number of factors can impact your system’s life span, including size, weather exposure, and how well it was installed. However, preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your HVAC unit lives up to its life expectancy.

Symptoms of an HVAC system past its prime include:

  • Weak heating, cooling, or ventilation
  • High utility bills
  • Frequent repairs

As the machinery begins to wear out, it overworks to reach a target temperature. Doing so uses more energy and drives up your monthly expenses. Are high bills and constant repairs becoming more frequent? It may be more cost-effective to upgrade to a new unit.
