What is an Air Handler and What Does It Do?

Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the idea of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Brighton. We’re here to help you recognize 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 through the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps sustain proper comfort levels inside your home. Some forms of air handlers even use heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.

A properly maintained and operating air handler can help decrease utility bills and a provide a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
