Choosing an Air Handler

The following tips will help you select the best air handler for your needs:

Consider the size of your home. The size of your home will dictate the size of the air handler that you need. If you have a small home, then a smaller air handler will suffice. However, if you have a large home, then you will need a larger air handler to circulate the air properly.

Think about the climate in your area. The climate in your area will also affect the type of air handler that you need. If you live in an area with a hot climate, then you will need an air handler that is designed to cool the air. On the other hand, if you live in an area with a cold climate, then you will need an air handler that is designed to heat the air.

Determine the type of filter that you need. There are two types of filters that can be used in air handlers: mechanical filters and activated carbon filters. Mechanical filters remove particulates from the air, while activated carbon filters remove odors and gasses. If you are concerned about indoor air quality, then you should choose an air handler with an activated carbon filter.

Consider the noise level. Some air handlers are very quiet, while others can be quite loud. If you have young children in your home, then you may want to choose an air handler that is not too noisy.

Think about the warranty. Air handlers come with different warranties. Some have longer warranties than others. Choose an air handler with a warranty that meets your needs and budget.

Following these tips will help you choose the best air handler for your home. If you have any questions, then you should consult with a professional before making your final decision.
