Air Handler Services

in the Austin, TX area

With heat and humidity that lasts nearly year-round, air conditioning is vital for comfort in the Austin area. In a typical home, the air handler is responsible for filtering, cooling, and distributing conditioned air through the duct system. It is the interior half of a complete central air or heat pump system, and it works with a separate condenser unit to remove heat from your home. When paired with a heat pump, air handlers can also provide heat. Problems with the air handler can reduce cooling performance or even cause a system breakdown.

Our HVAC experts have the tools, technology, and experience necessary to handle all your air handler needs. From new installations and replacements to routine maintenance and repairs, we provide complete HVAC services to both residential and commercial customers throughout the Central Texas area.

Air Handler Installation & Replacement

A typical air handler combines an air filter, supply plenum, return duct, evaporator, blower motor, and blower fan into a compact cabinet, which is connected to the condenser unit through refrigerant and electrical lines. Most air handlers last 10 to 15 years or more, but you should consider replacement if:

  • The air handler is over 15 years old or has an expired warranty
  • Frequent repairs are required or it has major problems, like a failed blower motor
  • It is inefficient compared to newer models
  • A new air conditioner or heat pump is being installed

Today’s air handlers have features like corrosion-resistant aluminum evaporators, variable-speed blower motors, improved insulation, and other features that make them more reliable and efficient. At Acme Air Conditioning & Heating we can handle all your air handler installation needs quickly and efficiently, whether you are installing a new unit or replacing your current one.
