H is not a vowel, it is a consonant.
Yet it never produce any sound in French (it is always mute).
Just as you would not say "a hour" but "an hour", the French do not say "le homme" but "l'homme", so that the language flows better. Pronunciation: LOM
However, some French words starting with an H do keep the full article, for instance "le héros". In this case, even though the H is still mute, it works as a barrier before the next vowel sound. Pronunciation: LUH ERO
