An air handler is the interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. In essence, an air handler does what its title says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump flow cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other components. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps sustain proper comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.
A well-maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a create an extended natural life for your split system or heat pump.
