Common Problems with Air Handlers

An air handler unit contains a blower (fan), cooling elements, filter racks, dampers and sound silencers or attenuators. Here are a few common problems that air handlers encounter:

  • Clogged Fan. Without regular cleaning, dust and debris can build-up inside the AHU and clog the fan. While the fan will still spin, air may not be coming out.
  • Mold Growth. Mold growth occurs on the blower fan from excessive moisture. Mold often smells mildewy or musty, so if you detect an unusual odor, check for mold growth. Blowing mold spores around a house is not an ideal situation.
  • Old Age. Most air handlers have a lifespan of 10 years. If your air handler is aging, it is more prone to leaking coils, broken-down components and electrical problems. Replace your old air handler before it completely breaks down.

During Idaho’s hot summer months, condensation forms in the pan below the air handler. This causes algae to form. Algae growth can quickly clog the drain line which causes the pan to fill and spill out.

Sign You Need an Air Handler Replacement

While repairs often help, there are times when you should replace your handler. Here are a few signs to look for:

  • Inefficient Cooling. Maybe some rooms have cool air, while others feel warm. An AHU which does not perform its main function — to circulate and regulate air needs to be replaced.
  • Rust is not your friend. Rust causes metal components to deteriorate and eventually break. Rust also is an indicator that you may have had some leaking, another sign that your AHU is on its last legs.
  • High Energy Bills. What used to be a reasonable energy bill has now ballooned out of control. New air handler units all must meet minimum SEER (seasonal energy-efficiency rating) standards for improved efficiency and quality.

Setting up the appointment was quick and easy. They clearly set expectations of price before the appointment was set. The associate arrived on time, called and texted with a 30 minute warning so I could be ready. Most of us, he didn’t try to upsell... me a bunch of stuff I didn’t need, like maintenance plans.read more

We lost power to our thermostat. Mike was very thorough in finding the cause and explained all of the details in a way that were easily understood. He went above and beyond his duty by also explaining the cause of why we sometimes have a smoke issue... when we use the fireplace. I am very happy with the service he provided to us, especially as new home owners who do not know all of the ins and outs as of yet. Thank you very much, Mike!!read more
