Air Handling Units
Commercial air handling units (AHU units) have features similar to residential furnaces but on a much larger scale. Their specific design varies with each application, but AHU units typically contain:
- Powerful blowers
- Heating components, electric or gas
- Air conditioning components
- Dampers for controlling air flow and direction
- Sound dampeners
How Commercial Air Handling Units Work
Commercial air handlers are used to draw untreated air into the system, heat or cool it, and force the treated air into open space or into ducts that carry it to space to be heated or cooled. Most also mix outdoor air, called make-up air, with the flow to increase volume, assist in combustion or improve air quality.
Commercial air handling units are one of the most common types of HVAC systems used to serve large spaces found in manufacturing plants, schools, hospitals, office buildings and specialty applications such as zoo enclosures and data centers. Roof mounting is common, but an AHU system can be located on the ground or in a mechanical room within the building.
