An efficient furnace air handler helps to improve furnace efficiency and reduce the amount of time needed to perform maintenance duties on your furnace. The furnace air handler should be located in an easy access location so that the proper filter can be placed on it at the outlet. When the furnace air handler isn’t in an easy access location, the filter could be placed inside the air handler. Increasing the filter size would reduce pressure drop and increase filter efficiency; more options for increasing filter size could include adding more deep pleated filters to reduce pressure drop and using larger sized filters. In order to have the right sized filter size, you need to consider the number of cylinders in the furnace. When you have the right sized filter for your furnace, the flow of air through the heater is not affected by the size of the filter.
When you have a furnace, it needs to be maintained to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that can easily poison the air in your home. It is important to use furnace filters to keep carbon monoxide out of the duct system of your furnace. Your furnace air handler and its filter must be checked regularly to ensure your furnace is operating correctly and that there are no leaks. It’s important to check your filter for debris, dirt, and other particles that could cause blockages. If your filter is dirty, it will need to be cleaned. You can clean the filter using a simple piece of wood or some elbow grease.
One way to check the condition of your furnace air handler is to put a small amount of liquid dish washing detergent in a spray bottle and spray the filter. This will allow you to see how clean the filters are. Another way to check the condition of your furnace air handler is to turn it on and turn off the furnace. If you notice any problems with the air flow, there are several ways to resolve the problem. You could turn off the furnace and turn on another unit and let it run for a few minutes; this will also help if the flow of air is going up or down. In some cases, the fan could be turned on and you could let it run for a few minutes to see if the flow is moving down. After you have found the problem, it’s important to replace the filter.
