An air handler is the interior 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 helps your split system or heat pump flow cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels within your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.

A properly maintained and working air handler can help decrease utility bills and a create a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
