Any fully functional HVAC system is going to need a good air handling unit. Air handling systems are key when it comes to regulating and circulating air within the home or office. However, like other components that operate within an HVAC system, air handlers require regular cleaning and maintenance. And when you need to have these components cleaned, it's important to have such work performed by a reputable contractor such as Coastal Mechanical. Here's a closer look at what you need to know about air handler cleaning and why we're the ideal company to perform this service.
How do I Know My Air Handler Needs Cleaning?
The air handler may fail for a variety of reasons - and when it does, it's important that you have the right professionals on call to quickly identify the problem and fix it. Here's a look at some of the common causes of air handler issues:
- Electrical problems.
- Motor failure.
- Lack of proper filter changes.
- Leaking condensate lines. (Note: This can be very damaging to your property if the air handler is located in your home's attic.)
Air Handling System Cleaning
To keep your air handling system running well, regular cleaning and maintenance is suggested. In order to clean and perform maintenance on the air handler unit, it will likely need to be dismantled and rebuilt - and this is a task that is best left to the professionals. Here's a look at our process for performing maintenance on AC air handler units:
- We start by dismantling the air handler, which often includes removing the condensation drain and refrigerant lines
- Once we can locate and remove the air handler, we'll next clean it. We can adequately perform a cleaning with a shop vacuum and cleaning solution.
- Next, we'll put everything back how we found it to essentially rebuild the air conditioning air handler. Some components we may suggest replacing.
- Lastly, we'll turn the air conditioner back on and make sure everything is working properly.
