Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are acquainted with the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Sacramento. We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would benefit you in your home.

An air handler is the interior 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 flow 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 workings. When the weather is burning, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels inside 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 correctly maintained and operating air handler can help lessen utility bills and a provide an extended natural life for your split system or heat pump.
