Air Handler Repair in Austin

Having problems with your air conditioner or heat pump? You may need to repair or replace the air handler. Call (512) 677-4424 to schedule immediate service in Austin, TX and surrounding areas.

The air handling unit is the indoor part of your AC or heat pump. It plays an integral role in the distribution of cool and warm air throughout your property.

The main components inside the air handler include:

  • Evaporator coil — This is where warm air is drawn in and cooled before being distributed to the supply vents.
  • Air filter — This is perhaps the most familiar component of your AC, since you replace it on a regular basis! Neglecting to replace the filter on a timely basis can lead to cooling inefficiencies and more frequent AC breakdowns.
  • Blower motor — The blower motor transports warm air to the evaporator coil and keeps cool air circulating through the ductwork.

Issues with any of these components can quickly result in lack of cooling and create problems with the rest of your AC system.

If you are experiencing issues with indoor cooling and need immediate solutions, don’t hesitate to contact your Austin AC contractors at Grande Air Solutions. We have experts available 24/7 to provide emergency AC repair and get your air handler problem resolved safely and accurately.

Common Problems That Can Affect Your Air Handler

The following are common issues affecting the components in your air handler. Our team can easily resolve these problems after a professional inspection and diagnosis.

Clogged AC filter

Regular filter replacement is essential to the health and efficiency of your air conditioner. Neglected filters can result in poor airflow and inefficient cooling.

Frozen or blocked coil

Clogged filters can also cause the evaporator coil to freeze or build up with debris. This can cause reduced airflow and lack of cold air.

Leaking refrigerant

This can create a dangerous situation in your home. Substantial leaking can harm your AC and your health.

Loose fan belt

If you hear unusual sounds (clacking) coming from your AC, there may be a broken or loose fan belt. The belt will need to be replaced as quickly as possible so other components in the air handler are not harmed.

Blower motor damage

Dirt and dust can build up in the blower motor and cause it to work much harder than usual. This can result in the blower motor burning out.

Replacing the Air Handler vs. Your Entire AC System

It may seem easier on the budget to replace just the air handler, rather than your entire air conditioning unit. However, doing so may lead to more problems down the road.

Industry regulations require indoor and outdoor units to have compatible components and efficiency levels. This means the coils, refrigerant, and even the SEER rating need to match in both units. If you decide to only replace the indoor air handler, the standards of the new unit will not complement the features of your older outdoor condenser. This can cause your AC to experience frequent problems and fail much more quickly.

As a result, we recommend replacing your entire AC system at the same time to ensure long-term peace of mind and efficiency. If you are ready to move forward with a new system, we can help you select and install a high-quality product from Amana.

What Our Clients Are Saying

In the middle of a heat wave they sent out Ivan Ugarte within 2 hours. He located a problem I've had since I moved into the house that 4 previous AC guys did not and he got it working so I had a comfortable night and was there early next morning to fix it permanently. Highly recommended

I called Grande Air Solutions in a pinch, my pop up AC unit started leaking all over my floor in my office. I wanted to get a mini-split installed to replace it so I started calling around to local AC installers/repair places, the vast majority of them wanted to charge me 5k-8k on the install! When I called Grande up, they had Alex out within the hour to quote me a very responsible price, much much lower then anyone else but inline with what I was expecting. The very next day the installers showed up and start the work. Let me say, I expect a LOT out of installers who are inside my house and they did not disappoint. Everything that could get dirty was covered, floor protected and wearing PPE (covid era). They did a great job explaining things along the way for me, they put in a long day and didn't leave here until the job was 100%, I couldn't have been happier with the service and response. I will be an advocate of Grande Air to anyone I meet needed AC service in the Austin Area.

My AC stopped pumping out cool air, so I called Grande. They got a tech out 2 hours later at 7:30 and he had me back up and running within an hour. They had great communication, and plenty of notifications and calls letting me know exactly when he would be there. I can't recommend them enough.

Unfortunately my AC went out, but the people from Grande Air Solutions did a fantastic job fixing it. I took them less than one hour to get to my location after I call them. The person that I spoke with was Isael, he gave me a couple of option and quoted me a very fair price. I would say they took care of the problem in less than 45 mins, and even sent pictures and video since I had to go back to my job. I definitely recommend them.

Fantastic Service




Review of Grande Air Solutions

Ivan came to my house to give my a/c a tune up and an overall prognosis report. Ivan is a people person and you can tell the moment he walks up. Ivan is polite and very professional and he is very knowledgeable at his profession. He does his job, explains options that can be taken with the unit and then proceeds with needed repairs that are agreed to. For a/c needs he is the one to request at Grande. Thank you so much!

Review of Grande Air Solutions

We had Grande Air in to do a summer preview of our 15 yo AC. Unfortunately it was on its last leg so we bit the bullet and replaced both units! I could not believe how great the experience was. Very professional and they did it in one day! No sleeping without an ac. Call Grande Air if you need any heating or cooling help! And they are here in Hutto! Shop local!
