An HVAC air handling unit (also called an AHU) is the indoor part of your heating and cooling system. An air handler circulates both cool and hot air, depending on the season. When properly matched with a heat pump or air conditioner, an air handler will help you maximize the overall efficiency of your HVAC system. We have a range of solutions so you can find the right air handler for your home.
An electric furnace uses electric resistance elements (like the heating coils inside a toaster) to heat air that is distributed throughout the house through a ductwork system. While builders like the affordability, simplicity and low cost of electric furnaces, homeowners soon come to dislike this heating option because electricity is very expensive to use for whole-house heating. A good HVAC system upgrade to consider is switching to a heat pump system. A heat pump consumes electricity but performs much more efficiently than an electric furnace.
