Even if you are familiar with the concept of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Raceland. We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would aid 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 label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is warm, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels in 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 operating air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver an extended lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
