We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would benefit you in your home. An air handler is the indoor 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 contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is hot, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels in your home. Some types of air handlers even contain heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer. A correctly maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a longer natural life for your split system or heat pump.
