How does an air conditioner/air handler matched system work?
A good choice for warmer regions, an air conditioner and air handler system is one of the many options for a matched system.
Air Conditioner and Air Handler Matched System
Regions: South, Southwest and California
- Air Conditioner – Connected to the inside cooling coil, the compressor pumps refrigerant back and forth, extracting heat and moisture from the indoors. It transfers the heat to the outdoors. Warm indoor air is blown over the indoor cooling coil, then is cooled and distributed throughout your home.
- Air Handler – Matched in capacity and efficiency rating with the air conditioner, air handlers circulate conditioned air throughout your home. An air handler contains an inside coil and a blower fan, with the additional possibility of an auxiliary electric strip heater. Trane air handlers are available with single- or variable-speed motors. Variable-speed models are known for soft starts, high humidity control features and 12 selectable levels of airflow capacity, as well as the enhanced comfort mode, the Comfort-R™ airflow system.
- Air Cleaner – An integral part of a home comfort system, filtering dust and pollutants out of the air you breathe, and keeping your rugs and home furnishings cleaner as well. Reduced pollen, dust, pet dander, smoke, etc., could help reduce allergy and asthma discomfort. A Trane CleanEffects™ air filtration system is up to 99.98% effective.
- Thermostat – The control center for your home comfort system. Trane’s digital, programmable thermostats give you precise temperature control and allow you to program your heating and cooling requirements depending upon your daily activities and schedule.
