If you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, you’re likely looking at some of the efficient features that will reduce your energy use and lower your utility bills. One feature that will do that is a variable-speed air handler. Following are some of the reasons why a variable speed air handler might be a good choice for your home.

What an Air Handler Does

variable-speed air handlerThe air handler does just what its name implies: It moves air through the HVAC system, and once it’s conditioned, it distributes it to the supply ducts. The HVAC system’s efficiency depends on a number of things, including how much electricity is used to absorb heat in the home, as well as the amount of electricity the air handler needs to do its job.

Benefits of Variable Speed

    1. Energy savings – In air conditioners without a variable-speed air handler, air is distributed at only one speed –100 percent capacity. A variable-speed unit is able to adjust the speed so air is distributed as needed, according to the home’s cooling load. Variable-speed systems start at full speed and after a comfortable temperature is achieved, the unit cuts back to a lower speed but runs throughout the day. Energy savings come from operating at a lower speed and with less-frequent cycling.
    2. Comfort and lower noise level – With a variable-speed unit, the temperature scarcely varies in comparison to a standard system, which starts and stops frequently, and with a considerable variation in temperature as it cycles on and off. Variable-speed air handlers are also quieter. Standard units often turn on with a burst of air, but variable speed can be whisper-quiet.
    3. Improved air quality and humidity control – With the variable-speed air handler’s longer cycles, air gets filtered longer so it removes more pollutants. Dehumidification is also improved with the longer cycles.
