Tempstar Air Handler Reviews | Consumer RatingsTempstar Air Handler Reviews  - Tempstar air handlers are available in up-flow, down-flow, or horizontal flow configurations and Tempstar air handlers serve the residential and light commercial markets. Tempstar air handlers have some options available to increase efficiency such as the variable speed motors. The variable speed ECM blower motors come in two different configurations: Both are high efficiency however only one is fully variable speed. Check with the dealer for this option and ask questions about before making the purchase.

Additionally, some Tempstar air handlers come with the TXV or Thermostatic expansion valve that regulates the refrigerant flow in the evaporator. Units that use a TXV get better efficiency than units that use other methods or metering devices to meter the refrigerant for the evaporator coil. If it was my air handler I would want the TXV option unless the system was a variable refrigerant capacity system which Tempstar currently does not offer in their model line up.

Tempstar Air Handler Reviews | Consumer Ratings - Features

Selected features of Tempstar air handlers include:

  • Variable speed blower motors available in select Tempstar air handlers - see above for available options for this feature
  • Tempstar air handlers coils use R410A
  • Heavy gauge galvanized, triple painted steel cabinets give Tempstar air handlers durability
  • Insulated cabinet keeps Tempstar air handlers quiet

The Tempstar warranties available for various air handlers mirror other warranties from other HVAC brands so the warranty is not really a matter of influence on the consideration to purchase the air handler. We recommend you always match systems as recommended by the manufacturer to get the best available efficiency for the system.
