What is an Air Handler and What Does It Do?

Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are acquainted with the idea of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Las Vegas. 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 interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump flow 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 mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain correct comfort levels within your home. Some models of air handlers even have heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.

A properly maintained and operating air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a lengthier lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
