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 be sure if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Rockford. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would aid 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 title says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump flow 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 burning, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels within 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 well-maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a create a lengthier life span for your split system or heat pump.
