What Is an AHU?
The Air Handling Unit (AHU) is a vital part of the HVAC system, as it is the central unit that supplies conditioned air to buildings through ductwork. It typically contains components like fans, coils, dampers, and filters to circulate air. Like many other critical features of an air conditioning system, obstructions can restrict this airflow, making it less energy efficient. As such, regular maintenance is essential.
What Does AHU Maintenance Involve?
A complete AHU maintenance programme involves thoroughly inspecting, cleaning and replacing key AHU components. This includes:
- Cleaning fan blades, motors, housing, coils, drip pans, valves, ducts to remove dust buildup
- Checking/replacing air filters
- Lubricating motors and bearings
- Inspecting/replacing belts and pulleys
- Testing controls and sensors
- Checking heat exchangers
- Testing emergency shut-offs
- Verifying proper drainage
- Checking for leaks, blockages or obstructions
- Confirming proper airflow
Proactive maintenance prevents problems, improves airflow and air quality, reduces energy costs, and extends the lifespan of the AHU. Therefore, it makes sense to have a professional facilities service on hand to take care of all your AHU maintenance needs.
