We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.

Problems With Your Air Handling Unit Can Cause Cooling Inefficiencies
The air handling unit is responsible for circulating cool air throughout your property. Inside the air handler you’ll find three main components:
Blower—The blower’s job is to pull warm air from your home and direct it towards the evaporator coil. The blower is also responsible for ensuring efficient air exchange throughout the system.
Evaporator coil—When warm air is pulled in by the blower, the evaporator coil will then cool the air before it is eventually released back into your living space.
Air filter—The air filter is responsible for keeping the inside of the air handling unit free of debris. Regular filter replacement is crucial to ensuring the continued efficiency of the blower and the evaporator coil.

Frozen evaporator coil—This is one of the more common issues that affect air handlers and can be caused by blocked filters. When the evaporator coil freezes, you will experience a lack of cool air due to restricted airflow.
Damaged blower—This is also caused by blocked filters. Blocked air filters can cause the blower motor to overheat. Excess dust, dirt, or debris in the air handler can also damage the blower.
Replacing the Air Handler
If you have an older AC or heat pump that constantly needs repair or servicing, it might be time to consider having it replaced. We offer full system replacements that include both indoor and outdoor unit replacements.
While it may seem more cost-effective to only replace the indoor air handler or the outdoor compressor, this can actually cause more problems in the long run. Both indoor and outdoor units must have matching SEER ratings, refrigerant, and coils in order to operate efficiently, which is why both units typically need to be replaced together.
Our experts will help you through the AC or heat pump installation and replacement process. We will make sure your new equipment is sized properly and installed to meet local building code and the highest quality standards.
