We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would aid 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 name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A well-maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a provide an extended life span for your split system or heat pump.
