Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are acquainted with the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Houston. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would help you in your home.

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 circulate cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes 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 uphold proper comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even use heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

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