If you’re trying to figure out all of the parts of your air conditioning system, you may be overwhelmed trying to make sense of it. What is an air handling unit? Often called an AHU, an air handling unit is a key part of any HVAC air conditioning system. An air handling unit works by regulating and circulating the air in your home. Without it, the HVAC system wouldn’t be able to function properly. It contains a humidifier, filters, heating and cooling coils and more. An air handling unit stops your home from feeling stale, and the air won’t feel heavy.
Depending on your system, an air handling unit might be visible –– it’ll look like a box and be somewhere like your garage –– or it may be hidden. Regardless, you can’t have an air conditioning system without an air handling unit. All of Air Boca’s air handler units come with a 10-year warranty manufacturer warranty, plus a 1 year Air Boca service warranty. Depending on your AHU and HVAC unit, your unit can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years with proper care.
How Do I Get the Best Out of My Air Handlers?
The best way to extend the life of your air handling unit and HVAC system as a whole is by prioritizing regular maintenance. If you keep your air filters clean and regularly change them, that’s one way to make sure your air handling unit lasts. Having your unit professionally serviced once or twice a year will also help extend the lifespan of your air handling unit.
