The air handler in your air conditioner moves the cool air through your home, and a malfunction means you get reduced airflow and no cold air. If you’re not getting all the cold air you used to get, it could be a problem with the air handler. Call the experts at Alberta Indoor Comfort (previously Sears) for fast, accurate repairs.
