Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the concept of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to improve your home comfort in West Columbia. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would aid you in your home.
An air handler is the interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. In essence, an air handler does what its label says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other components. When the weather is burning, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain proper comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even use heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets chillier.
A properly maintained and working air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver a longer lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
