    Hmm Air Handler Horizontal Left & Right Configuration??

    Folks, can anyone give me a simple explanation of the differences between an Air Handler being in a left and right configuration- what are the visual differences? How can I discern one from the other- thanks in advance for your time!

    How the hell do you get into the control panel? How do you change the blower motor?

    The air handler is normally constructed around a framing system with metal infill panels as required to suit the configuration of the components.

    Air handler basically connect to a ductwork ventilation system that distributes the conditioned air through the particular area.

    Put yourself in front of the air handler, where the control and blower access is. Horizontal-right is when your return is on the left and the supply is on the right (airflow moves to the right). Horizontal-left is the opposite (airflow moves to the left).

    The only one I haven't seen is an air handler in a horizontal-vertical orientation.
