Air Handler Water Coil Freeze Stat
Air Handler Water Coil Freeze Stat – The HVAC Air Handler Freeze Stat is a low temperature limit control and it is used mainly in commercial systems in the duct work on economizers or in air handlers just before any coil especially water coils. It is a safety and protection control to prevent extremely cold air from reaching the hot water or chilled water coils inside the air handler where the air enters from the economizer. Under ideal control set up if the freeze stat trips the economizer dampers close and the blower fan stops. This prevents coils from freezing. A frozen coil can bust open and will need to be replaced if it freezes thus the purpose of the freeze stat in HVAC air handler applications which utilize economizers for free cooling.
