Air Handler Units

An air handling unit (also called AHU or air handler) is the equipment that manages the ventilation port of an HVAC system, commonly used in conjunction with air-conditioners.

If you’re in need of an air handler unit replacement, repair or servicing by professionals, you’ve come to the right place. At Easy Cool Air, we can repair, supply and install air handler units for our commercial and domestic clients in Cairns.

Who Needs an Air Handling Unit System?

Found commonly on building rooftops and utility rooms, AHU is ideal for spaces that see large flows and gatherings of people but have limited natural ventilation. Such places include function halls, convention halls, restaurants and hotel dining rooms. Air handlers are also suitable for premises that have high hygiene requirements, like operating theatres and laboratories.

Those living or operating in warm and slightly cooler climates can benefit from an air conditioner-air handler tandem to keep their air at an ideal temperature.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Handler Units

An air handler is the HVAC equipment designed to manage proper ventilation, distributing conditioned air throughout the area and returning it to the unit. How the process goes is that the air handler pulls warm outdoor air and mixes it with indoor air, moves it over the evaporator coils, and circulates the conditioned air through the ducts. Other functions of an AHU unit include filtration, air quality and temperature control, and relative humidity monitoring.

Not all, but many AC systems contain air handlers in them. AHU units are most likely found inside split-type air conditioner systems.
