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 know if you could use one to improve your home comfort in Covington. 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 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 push cooled or warmed air through the ducts of your house. The air handler encompasses 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 adequate comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even use heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A properly maintained and working air handler can help decrease utility bills and a provide a lengthier life span for your split system or heat pump.
