Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the idea of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Erie. 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 internal unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. In essence, 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 components. When the weather is warm, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels inside your home. Some forms 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 operating air handler can help lower utility bills and a deliver a lengthier lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
