DIAGNOSE

Every repair starts with an assessment.

When you book your air handler repair service, your personal, trained technician will come to your home to begin the evaluation process to diagnose the issue.

During your evaluation your technician will carefully examine all components of your air, handler including blower fans, filters, and dampers looking for signs of damage. They will also inspect connection lines, filters and ducts to check for contaminants or clogs that could effect the performance of your air handler. This evaluation will quickly give you the best repair options.

At the end of your evaluation, they will then present your personalized, comprehensive quote best suited to your repair needs.

Common Air Handler Issues

Fan unit problems

The fan unit that works with the air handler in your unit is what actually blows the air throughout your home or business. These fans work hard in our Arizona heat, and if your unit starts making strange noises or fails to blow at all, that's a sign it's time to schedule a repair with Rainforest Plumbing & Air.

Condensate leaks

One of the most common air handler problems is condensate pan leaks. AC units in the Phoenix area work hard during the summer and create large amounts of condensation that accumulates in the pan below the air handler. Due to this moisture, algae and mold can build up in the lines, creating a drain clog, causing the pan to overflow and potentially leading to water damage.

Dirty AC blowers

In your air handler, there are blades in a squirrel-cage fan. Dirt can easily accumulate on the blades. The fan will spin just fine, but the airflow will be greatly reduced, causing the components in your air conditioner to work harder, and could lead to higher repair or replacement costs.

Contaminated blower compartments

Contaminated blower compartments carry a risk to your indoor air quality, as well as health issues in buildings. So if you suspect you have an issue with your air handler's blower components, call Rainforest Plumbing & Air today!

Put Back Guarantee

Unlike other HVAC and Plumbing companies, when we’re done, we have a skilled crews that can handle all of your put-back needs.

From finishing and painting, excavation and concrete, with Rainforest’s Put Back Policy you can rest assured, when we clean up, we leave your space better than we found it, guaranteed!

How Does My Air Handler Work?

An air handler is a unit located in your home or commercial building’s HVAC system. It includes a blower fan, heating and/or cooling parts, filters, and dampers.

The unit controls how much air is sent out through your air conditioner and also determines whether or not the air sent is warm or cool.

The air handler connects to the ducts that distribute the conditioned air through your home or business, and return it to the air handler through the return vent and air filter.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Handler Repair

How much does air handler repair costs?

Air conditioner repair cost depends greatly on the complexity and severity of your cooling issue. Give us a call today for your no obligation quote.

How long does air handler repair take?

The time it takes to repair your AC unit can vary due to the complexity and severity of the issue. However, our team strives to be as efficient as possible, and we're proud to offer same day, 24/7 emergency service to get your AC unit back up and running as quickly as possible.

If my air handler needs to be repired, does my whole HVAC system have to be repaired?

An air conditioner compressor is one of the most important pieces of your AC unit. When refrigerant is compressed and released, it gets very cold and cools the coils in your AC unit. Your AC unit’s fan then forces the air through these chilled coils, thus cooling the air down for distribution throughout your home or building. If you compressor is failing, give Rainforest Plumbing & Air a call right away!

My service was completed yesterday and I am even more impressed with Rainforest Plumbing and Air. I am in a condo and the installation of the new Air Handler system posed some challenges but Patrick and Daniel went over and above in taking care of the situation.
