Air handlers are a crucial component of your HVAC system. Why? Well, air handlers are responsible for circulating cool or warm air throughout your home. Without them, your HVAC system won’t work properly. An air handler works by directing air that’s pushed through it into the correct channels of your HVAC infrastructure. In a nutshell, air handlers regulate the circulation rate and even distribution of air throughout your home.

It’s all too easy to overlook problems with your evaporator coil, but taking proactive steps to limit those issues will ensure the longevity and efficiency of your air conditioning system. Coils will periodically need to be cleaned, repaired, or even replaced. Your evaporator coil could be leaking refrigerant, emitting a stinky odor from bacteria build-up, or completely freeze over. Regardless of the issue, they’ll all prevent your AC unit(s) from performing optimally.
