Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the idea of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Elk River. We’re here to help you learn 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. Essentially, an air handler does what its title 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 contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels within your home. Some forms 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 functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a lengthier natural life for your split system or heat pump.
