We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would aid you in your home.

An air handler is the interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Basically, an air handler does what its title says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels within your home. Some types of air handlers even contain heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.

A properly maintained and operating air handler can help lessen utility bills and a provide a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
