When to Replace Your Air Handler Unit
An air handler unit helps to circulate and regulate the cool air within your home. An AHU contains the blower (fan), cooling elements, filter racks, dampers and sound attenuators. As with any mechanical device, it’s prone to the occasional hiccup such as a clogged fan or leaking. But there comes a time when your AHU can no longer be feasibly repaired and requires a replacement:
Very poor air flow. If after a few repairs, your AHU is still providing poor circulation, then it may be time to kick the bucket.
Inflated energy bills. An older system, say over 10 years old, is prone to more inefficiencies which can drive up your monthly energy bill. Newer air handler units must meet minimum SEER (seasonal energy-efficiency rating) standards for improved efficiency and quality.
Corrosion. If you notice rust within your AHU, it may be on its last legs. The metal components inside have likely deteriorated and are prone to more breakdowns.
Why You Need to Replace Your Air Filter
The air filter inside your AC system helps to filter out particles found within your home and to keep the inside of the system free of debris. With increased use, the air filter becomes clogged with dust, dirt and other air particles. When the air filter gets too dirty, it begins to affect the quality of your air by circulating dirty air within your home, and also reduces the amount of air flow.
Regular replacement of your air filter is one of the easiest yet most effective ways to improve the efficiency of your air conditioning system. Right Now Heating and Air Conditioning offers a Filter Replacement Program that ships new air filters directly to your doorstep. You can sign up for regular scheduled delivery of air filters, or simply call us whenever you need a replacement. During the summer months when your AC is in constant use, you may need to replace your filter more often.
