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 enhance your home comfort in Manassas. We’re here to help you learn 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. Essentially, an air handler does what its name says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump push cooled or warmed air around the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, in conjunction with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps sustain correct comfort levels in your home. Some models of air handlers even contain heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A correctly maintained and working air handler can help decrease utility bills and a provide an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
