What is an Air Handler Unit?
One of the most important components of an AC system is the air handler unit (AHU). It contains the blower fan responsible for circulating and regulating the cool air in your home. Have you noticed poor circulation of cool air lately? A clogged fan may be to blame. Here are a few common problems that can occur in an air handler unit:
Blocked fan. Over time, dirt, dust and debris can collect on the blower and reduce its efficiency. When the fan becomes too clogged, cool air may not come out at all, even if it still spins.
Age. The average lifespan of an AHU is 10 years. If your air handler is on its last legs, consider replacing it before it breaks down. Older AHU’s become less efficient and encounter electrical issues.
Mold. Mold always finds a way to flourish in places with moisture and a lack of ventilation. Moisture build-up can occur on the fan in hot weather. If you detect a musty or mildewy odor, you may have mold growth in your AHU.
Leaking. When temperatures rise, condensation can form within the system and drip into the pan below the AHU. Algae growth from the sitting water can block the drain. When the pan fills up and cannot drain, it causes leaking.
