Air Handlers, or Air Handling Units (AHUs) essentially “handle” the air within your environment. The Air Handler Hire unit conditions the air and circulates it, normally as part of a building’s heating, ventilating or air conditioning system.

The speed of the unit varies depending on the specific cooling/heating required.

By utilising an air handler you’ll ensure a consistent level of air comfort. Without an AHU the indoor air quality will be compromised, as will the air circulation within the building.

A properly installed unit will ensure that the cool and warm air is evenly distributed.

Aqua can supply two main types of air handler hire units. Our smaller AHU’s, referred to as our fan coil range, are compact air conditioning hire units designed for local use. Our larger Air Handlers Hire industrial units, are specifically designed for industrial applications.

Our fan coil range is sized from 15kW to 30kW and all models are lightweight in design so easily portable. Our larger, industrial units go from 50kW to 300kW.
