We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would benefit you in your home.
An air handler is the internal unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. In essence, an air handler does what its title says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump flow cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain proper comfort levels inside your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.
A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide an extended life span for your split system or heat pump.
