The long, hot and humid summers in Tallahassee, FL mean that your entire air conditioning system has a high workload. The indoor unit of your central air conditioner is also called the air handler. In the summertime, the AC air handler filters and blows the cooled air into your home’s ducts. If your home has a furnace, the air handler acts as the forced-air system to blow the warmed air into your home. If the air handler starts to fail, it’s important to choose the right replacement. Read on for some tips for selecting the right air handler for your central AC system.

Consider Energy Efficiency

If your air handler is more than 10 years old, replacing it could improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you a lot of money. According to the Department of Energy, new air handlers use 20% to 40% less electricity compared to models produced just 10 years ago. Given the high temperatures and humidity in Tallahassee, you could save hundreds of dollars each year by upgrading to a high-efficiency air handler.

Ensure Component Compatibility

It’s also important to ensure that the new AC air handler you choose will be compatible with the compressor and condenser portion of your cooling system. For example, the efficiency and capacity levels of both components need to be matched, otherwise the older unit will wear itself out trying to keep up with the new equipment. Working with a skilled HVAC technician will ensure that the two pieces of equipment work together smoothly.

Select Helpful Features

When choosing a new AC air handler, consider some helpful features. An air handler with a built-in UV light sanitizes your home’s air. Air handlers with built-in dehumidifying pipes maintain ideal indoor humidity levels.

High Quality Heat and Air was highly recommended to us when we knew we needed to replace our air conditioning system. We are very glad we contacted them. Marty met with us and went over our options, gave us good advice, an honest proposal and ordered our equipment without delay. His professional crew installed the unit efficiently without any inconvenience to us. This is one good company in my opinion.

The issue was repaired timely and with great customer service.

I scheduled a maintenance check up and Randall came out to check my A/C unit. He was so professional and punctual. He explained everything to me as he performed the maintenance. He wore a face covering which made me feel like he had my safety and his own in mind. I will use this company every year. Thanks Randall.
