What is an Air Handler and What Does It Do?

Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the model of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Saint Charles. We’re here to help you learn what an air handler is and if one would help you in your home.

An air handler is the indoor unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps sustain correct comfort levels in your home. Some forms of air handlers even use 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 decrease utility bills and a provide a longer lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
