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 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 flows air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels inside your home. Some forms of air handlers even contain heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.
A well-maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver a longer life span for your split system or heat pump.
