An air handler, or air handling unit (AHU), is used to condition and circulate air as part of a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. An air handler is a large metal box or plastic composite, containing a blower, heating or cooling coils, filter racks, sound attenuators, and dampers. Air handlers usually connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the air through the building and returns it to the AHU. Ranges between 13-21 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating).
A condenser is a device is used to condense the refrigerant from a liquid to a gas state by cooling it. The latent heat is given up by the substance, and will transfer to the condenser coolant. Condensers are typically heat exchangers which have various designs and come in many sizes ranging from rather small to very large industrial-scale units used in plant processes. They are used in air conditioning, industrial chemical processes such as distillation, steam power plants and other heat-exchange systems.
Ductless Mini Split Systems
These types of systems allow a home owner or commercial building owner, the capability of heating and cooling a house or building with no metal ducting. It allows you to control the temperature in every room separately. These types of systems come in many designs, as well as the air handlers which could be mounted on a wall or in the attic, or under a window. You can install up to 8 air handlers on 1 outdoor condensing unit. These systems have been proven to save the homeowner up to 50% on utility bills.

Thermostats and Controls
A thermostat is a component of a control system for a heating or cooling that senses the temperature of a system, so the temperature is maintained at a desired set point by switching heating or cooling devices on or off. Thermostats can be constructed in many ways and may use a variety of sensors to measure the temperature. The output of the sensor then controls the heating or cooling apparatus. The newest technology allows the customer to monitor and control the temperature of the home or building with Wi-Fi thermostats, which can connect to a phone and or a tablet.
Custom Ductwork & Designs
All of our ductwork is customized to fit the new air handlers to provide a well-balanced air distribution throughout the home or building. If your project requires custom ductwork, Scarpelli Mechanical will design it to adapt to any job. Here at Scarpelli Mechanical our experienced hands on professional installers guarantee your comfort with providing you with the most efficient equipment used in our installation systems.
Air Purification Systems
An air purifier is a device which removes contaminants from the air. These devices are also knows for being beneficial to reducing or eliminating second-hand tobacco smoke, allergy sufferers and asthmatics. Commercial grade air purifiers are manufactured as either small stand-alone units or larger units that can be affixed to an air handler unit (AHU) or to an HVAC unit found in the medical, industrial, and commercial industries.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
Energy recovery ventilation (ERV) is the energy recovery process of exchanging the air held within building or space air and using it to precondition the incoming outdoor ventilation air. The benefit of using energy recovery is the ability to meet the ASHRAE ventilation & energy standards, while improving indoor air quality and reducing total HVAC equipment capacity.
Heat Recovery Ventilators
Also known as HRV, mechanical ventilation heat recovery, or MVHR, is another type of energy recovery ventilation system using equipment known as a heat recovery ventilator, heat exchanger, air exchanger, or air-to-air heat exchanger which employs a counter-flow heat exchanger (countercurrent heat exchange) between the inbound and outbound air flow. HRV provides fresh air and improved climate control, while also saving energy by reducing heating (and cooling) requirements.
