Air Handlers and Coils

Wholesale Air Handlers and Coils Buying Guide

Often located in an attic, basement, or closet, the air handler “handles” the air inside of your space and delivers warm or cool air throughout the space. Air handlers can be especially beneficial in cooler climates, since a heat kit or heat strip can be installed along with the air handler that enables the air handler to heat your space during colder months. 

Air handlers have the capability of being installed in a myriad of positions in order to blow air out in the most convenient way for each owner.

Our handlers come in a variety of configurations:

Ceiling

Wall Mount

Upflow Downflow

Horizontal

Upflow Horizontal

Downflow Horizontal

Multi-Position

Essentially, the configuration of your air handler will depend on where it is installed - like in the attic or closet, which will tell you what way the air will need to blow (either up or down) to be effective. 

The evaporator coil is the part of an air conditioner or heat pump that absorbs the heat from the air inside of your space. It is located inside of the air handler or attached to the furnace. It is a crucial part of the HVAC system. 

You can choose between a cased and uncased coil, with the uncased coil coming without the protective case, making it easier to mold into different shapes that might benefit more unique air conditioning systems. These models also come in different configurations, like upflow, downflow, a combination of these, and on a slab, specifically meant to accommodate horizontal air conditioners. 

The tonnage of your air conditioning unit should match up with the tonnage of your evaporator coil. So, for example, if you have a 2-ton condenser inside of your air conditioning unit, the evaporator coil should also be 2 tons. 

Here is a useful guide to tonnage sizes:

To find the desired tonnage for your evaporator coil, you’ll first need to calculate the square footage of the space that you’re trying to cool. Typically, the average home requires one ton of air conditioning per 400 to 1,000 square feet. There is a lot of variation in this number since you’ll also need to factor in how many windows the space has and how tall the ceilings are, as these things dictate how easily air flows through your space.

Disclaimer: Before making a purchase, you should always check first with your qualified installer to figure out what unit is best for your home or space.
