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.

Chase Christensen was wonderful! On time, friendly, yet straight down to business. Didn't take long at all, but he was thorough enough to let me know what he was doing, how my system was doing, explaining things when I asked questions. Very... polite & professional, positive energy & friendly--but not too friendly either! THANK YOU FOR SENDING CHASE!read more

Chase showed up on time with a smile on his face! He went the extra mile. I live in a newer subdivision in Eagle. Chase cleaned and checked every component on my furnace and air conditioner. He even flushed and checked my water heater! My home is... now updated and the HVAC system clean! Chase was done in about an hour. My home is back to new again and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Right Now and thank you Chase! You rock!read more
