Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t.

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. 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 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 warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels in 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 working air handler can help lower utility bills and a create an extended life span for your split system or heat pump.
