Maybe you’ve been told about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the concept of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Alice. 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. Essentially, an air handler does what its title 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 utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other mechanisms. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps uphold adequate comfort levels in your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A properly maintained and operating air handler can help lessen utility bills and a create an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
