What is an Air Handler?
An Air Handler is an indoor unit that is matched with an outdoor unit to form a heat pump (split system). Together they deliver hot or cool air throughout your home all year long. Air handlers can be installed in several places in your home including your attic or crawl space. Here at O’Brien Service Company we offer several Trane air handlers, below is how they differ from others.
Trane Air Handlers:
Trane has revolutionized air handlers when they introduced the Hyperion. Trane says, “The Hyperion™ air handler is built unlike anything the market has ever seen. It is constructed more like a refrigerator than a typical air handler, with insulation between the walls of the innovative cabinet. This insulation prevents condensation that may cause damage to the air handler itself or your home. In addition to eliminating “sweating,” the cabinet also eliminates the loose fibers from fiberglass insulation that may enter the airstream with other air handlers. The exclusive double-wall construction provides families with peace of mind and cleaner, safer indoor air.”
For the ultimate in efficiency, the Hyperion XL’s variable speed blower motor fine tunes airflow, while its Comfort-R™ technology controls humidity. Setting the industry standard when it comes to design and intuition, the Trane Hyperion offers durability, efficiency and comfort you’d expect from a Trane. Read below for the benefits of the Hyperion Air Handler, and also take a minute to watch the quick video linked below.
