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 familiar with the idea of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area. We’re here to help you recognize 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 name 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 contains 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 adequate comfort levels within your home. Some types of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier. A well maintained and functioning air handler can help decrease utility bills and a create a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
