Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Smyrna. We’re here to help you understand 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 push cooled or warmed air within the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps uphold correct comfort levels inside your home. Some types 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 decrease utility bills and a create a longer life span for your split system or heat pump.
