We’re here to help you learn 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 label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push 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 components. When the weather is burning, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps maintain proper comfort levels inside your home.

A well maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a create a lengthier lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
