What is an Air Handler
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 within the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows cool air through your home, which helps sustain proper comfort levels in your home. Some forms of air handlers even use heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A properly maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a longer life for your split system or heat pump.
