What is an Air Handler and What Does It Do? 06/09/2017fMaybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Bossier City. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would aid you in your home. An air handler is the internal unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels in your home. Some forms of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder. A well maintained and operating air handler can help lower utility bills and a create a longer lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
