Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the idea of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Cedar Rapids. 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 through the ducts of your house. The air handler contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other components. When the weather is hot, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps maintain proper comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.
A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help decrease utility bills and a deliver a longer lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
