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

An air handler is the indoor 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 circulate cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other mechanisms. When the weather is hot, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels in your home. Some forms of air handlers even have heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A properly maintained and operating air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide a lengthier lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
