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 familiar with the model of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Greensburg. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would aid 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 circulate 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 workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.

A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a create an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
