We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would benefit you in your home.
An air handler is the indoor unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air around 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 flows air through your home, which helps maintain proper comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A well maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a deliver a longer lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
