Proven Air Handler Services

An air handler is an essential part of your HVAC system, responsible for distributing conditioned air throughout your home. Typically located indoors, it works in tandem with your furnace, heat pump, or air conditioner to ensure your home remains comfortable year-round.


Service Overview

The installation of an air handler involves several critical steps to ensure it is properly placed, connected, and functional. After assessing your living space, we help you select the right air handler and install it according to local regulations and manufacturer specifications. Here’s an overview of our air handler installation process:

Our Process

Our process may vary depending on your specific needs, but here’s a general breakdown of what happens during an air handler installation:

Site Assessment: One of our HVAC technicians will conduct a thorough site assessment to determine the optimal location for your new air handler. Factors such as available space, accessibility, and proximity to ductwork and electrical connections are considered.

Unit Selection: Based on the assessment and your HVAC system’s requirements, we’ll help you choose the appropriate size and type of air handler. Air handlers come in various configurations, including horizontal, vertical, ceiling-mounted, and compact units.

Mounting: The air handler is securely mounted in the designated location using brackets or a platform. We ensure the unit is level and properly supported to prevent vibration and noise during operation.

Connection to Ductwork: We connect the air handler to your existing ductwork or newly installed ducts using metal connectors, flexible ducts, or transition pieces. Proper sealing of ducts is crucial to prevent air leaks and ensure efficient airflow.

Electrical Wiring: Our technicians install the necessary electrical wiring to connect the air handler to the power source. This wiring is sized, grounded, and connected according to local building codes and manufacturer specifications.

Condensate Drain Line: We install a condensate drain line to channel excess moisture away from the air handler, preventing water damage and maintaining proper humidity levels.

Refrigerant Lines: For central air conditioning systems, we install refrigerant lines to connect the air handler to the outdoor condenser unit. These lines are insulated to prevent energy loss.

Air Filter Installation: Air filters are installed within the air handler to remove dust, pollen, and other airborne particles from the circulating air. Regular filter replacement is essential to maintain indoor air quality.

Thermostat Connection: The air handler is connected to the thermostat or control panel, allowing you to adjust temperature settings and control your HVAC system.

Testing and Commissioning: Once the installation is complete, we test your HVAC system to ensure it operates correctly, adjusting airflow, temperature control, and humidity levels as needed.

We found a corroded gas line during a bathroom remodel! Yikes! We called, and a tech was sent very shortly. Jason was awesome. He fixed the problem and then added an emergency water main shut-off that we’ve wanted to have done for a long time. Other companies made it seem so complicated that we were putting it off. Despite the horrible crawl space that he had to work in Jason did a stellar job, AND at a very reasonable price. We’ve found our “go to” plumbing service and would recommend them without a second thought!

“Fantastic service, prompt response and fixes my emergency issue. My plumber told me he would be out right away, four hours later they didn’t show up and I called this company and they were there within an hour on a Saturday.”

Scott K

“My water tank blew this morning, they were able to get a tech out right away (within an hour and a half). My technician Donald was absolutely amazing. Friendly, respectful, efficient, and had great communication skills from start to finish! I will not hesitate to call for any of my plumbing needs in the future!”

Jude Panfill

“I had an issue with my kitchen faucet leaking. I called and got an appointment for the following morning. The technician arrived as scheduled and went to work. He made every effort to save me money by replacing the hose (it’s a pull-out faucet by Glacier Bay just 6 years old) but they no longer sell replacement hoses, so I had to get a new faucet installed. Removing the old faucet was very difficult. I felt sorry for the technician. He had to make a few trips to Home Depot, first for a replacement hose and then to buy a new faucet. He left the area clean and took all the trash out with him when he left. He was wonderful and made sure that the new faucet was properly installed and working as it should. I was so pleased with the service that I will definitely use them again if need be. Shout out to the technician Jarrett. He was great!”
