An air handler is the internal unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Basically, an air handler does what its label 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 encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps uphold proper comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

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