Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are familiar with the model of an air handler, you may not be sure if you could use one to advance your home comfort in McKinney and Frisco. We’re here to help you understand what an air handler is and if one would help you in your home.

An air handler is the internal 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 through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other mechanisms. When the weather is warm, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels inside your home. Some types of air handlers even have heat strips to strengthen the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A well-maintained and working air handler can help lower utility bills and a provide an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
