In an effort to save space and money, many homeowners are opting for a horizontal air handler. However, they can be installed on any level in a home as long as there is access from below to place the unit under the slab or ground. A horizontal air handler is usually set inside the home and operates with both the heating and cooling system of your HVAC. One quick glance at an air handler, and you might confuse it with a horizontal furnace.
A horizontal flow furnace simply refers to a type of HVAC system which designates the direction that airflow comes out. Horizontal flow air handler is designed to be positioned on its side and circulate the warm air in one end while exhausting it out of another. Opposite to vertical flow air handler these units are less energy-efficient and are primarily used in homes with limited space that doesn’t allow a vertical installation such as the attic, basement, or crawlspace of a home.
