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 interior 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 circulate cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps uphold correct comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even use heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier. A correctly maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a create an extended lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
