Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Florissant. We’re here to help you recognize 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 name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other components. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain adequate comfort levels in your home. Some types 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 operating air handler can help decrease utility bills and a create a lengthier lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
