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 hot, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain 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 calmer.
A well maintained and operating air handler can help decrease utility bills and a create a lengthier lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
