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.

Ali was very professional and nice. He seemed truly passionate about his work. He told me what he was doing, and then showed me. He was excited about the good work he did, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Our upstairs furnace was not working and we were told that our unit was too old and needed to be replaced ASAP. Ali came over, inspected it and immediately found the problem. The furnace’s front panel/door was open and the kill switch had shut off... the unit, as designed. The door/panel was open because the fasteners/screws had been left off during the previous service call.Our furnace is old, but works perfectly fine and does not need to be replaced today. Ali saved us $5500-6000 and moving forward we will always request him by name.read more

Our water heater went out on a Friday evening. We called "Right Now" to have someone come out to look at it. Joe was on time, professional and courteous. He quickly resolved the issue, and explained what he had done. He was able to get us hot... water again, but unfortunately, with a rusting 16 year old water heater, it's time for a new one. At our request, he set up an appt. for someone to come to our house the next day, to give us an estimate. Joe left everything clean, and wore the proper coverings while in the house. We bought our new furnace and AC last summer, from "Right Now", and we were very happy with their services. We will continue to use them and we have reccomended tthem to others.read more

Thus company originally installed our furnace and AC. system 6 years ago. Every time they have done either follow-up, maintenance or are called like today they are prompt and show up as promised. This time Blake Warr was here, he was super... helpful, explained things clearly, answered questions. Felt like he genuinely cared about his work and our satisfaction. Will always recommend and use them. Good work, worth it. And competitively priced.read more
