Air Hadlers

An air handler, or air handling unit (often called an AHU), is used to condition and circulate air as part of an HVAC system. Usually it's a large metal box containing a blower, heating or cooling elements, filter racks or chambers, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through your home and returns it to the AHU. Another words, they are designed to condition and circulate the air, varying its speed based on your home's heating and cooling requirements determining whether or not the air sent is warm or cool.

Very often, air handler unit expirience troubles that leads to condensate pan leaks. AC units work hard during the summer and create a lot of condensation that will accumulate in the pan below the air handler. So, if you notice moisture or water pooling below your air handler, a condensate leak is usually the cause.

Leaks into the blower compartment of an HVAC air handler can create mold problems as well. This condition suggests that the unit has not had seasonal AC maintenance.
