We’re here to help you learn 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. Basically, an air handler does what its label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps sustain proper comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver a lengthier lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
