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 acquainted with the idea of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Irvine. 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 indoor unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Basically, an air handler does what its title 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 utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other components. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels inside your home. Some models of air handlers even use heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.

A well maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a deliver a longer natural life for your split system or heat pump.
