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 model of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Albuquerque. We’re here to help you learn what an air handler is and if one would help you in your home. 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 around the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels within your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder. A correctly maintained and operating air handler can help lessen utility bills and a create a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
