Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the model of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Huffman. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would help 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 title says: it handles air. It assists your split system or heat pump flow cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps uphold proper comfort levels within your home. Some models of air handlers even have heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.
A correctly maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and deliver a longer lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
