We’re here to help you recognize 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. 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 through the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is burning, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps sustain correct 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 calmer. A well maintained and working air handler can help lessen utility bills and a provide a longer natural life for your split system or heat pump.
