We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would aid you in your home. An air handler is the interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Basically, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other components. When the weather is warm, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps uphold adequate comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even contain heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier. A properly maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a deliver a longer lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
