What is an Air Handler and What Does It Do? 06/09/2017fMaybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the idea of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Groves. 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. Basically, an air handler does what its label 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 utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other mechanisms. When the weather is warm, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels within your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder. A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a longer natural life for your split system or heat pump.
