An air handler is the indoor unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its label 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 contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps uphold adequate comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even have heat strips to boost 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 provide a longer life span for your split system or heat pump.
