Air Handler Repair
In some homes, you may have an air handler system used for regulating and circulating air through your home. Air handlers can play a large part in regulating humidity, and assist with cooling and some heating. They typically connect to a duct work ventilation system, but they can also operate alone, for smaller spaces.
Air handlers come in a few different styles, so working with them can be tricky for homeowners. Luckily, our technicians at TAM A/C & Heating are experts in air conditioning repair of all kinds, and provide 24-hour emergency assistance.

Common Reasons For Air Handler Repair
The biggest cause of air handler problems is dirty filters. Dirty filters cause a slew of problems with your system that could be easily avoided. Like every air conditioner, yearly maintenance is key for the longevity of your investment.
Dirty air filters do a few things, all of which have a negative impact on your air handler unit. Clogged filters begin by constricting air flow and putting added strain on your blower motor. The blower motor begins working harder and producing more condensate. The extra condensate builds up, and allows algae to grow and block your drainage tubes, which can lead to serious water damage!
Aside from overworking the blower, dirty filters also allow dirt to enter the ducts, and gather on the evaporator coils and other components, causing further clogging throughout the system. Failing to keep these components clean can lead to the system freezing and costly air handler repair.
