Som...

Any use for Furnace Air Handlers? - 10 replies

We are about to replace both of our A/C’s and gas furnaces due to age and failure. The air handlers in each are still functioning so I was wondering if there is any value in stripping those out and using them for something else or even trying to sell them?
