Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the concept of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Houston. We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would benefit you in your home.
An air handler is the indoor unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Essentially, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps uphold proper comfort levels within your home. Some forms 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 working air handler can help decrease utility bills and a deliver an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
