An air handler is the internal unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. In essence, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other components. When the weather is hot, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps uphold adequate comfort levels within your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A properly maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a provide a longer lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
