Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the model of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Lexington. 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 name 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 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 maintain proper comfort levels inside your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A correctly maintained and operating air handler can help decrease utility bills and a provide a lengthier lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
