Maybe you’ve heard of air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the model of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to advance your home comfort in Marietta. We’re here to help you recognize 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. Essentially, an air handler does what its title says: it handles air. It helps your split system or heat pump circulate cooled or warmed air around 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 burning, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps uphold correct comfort levels in your home. Some forms of air handlers even contain heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A well maintained and functioning air handler can help lessen utility bills and a deliver a lengthier lifespan for your split system or heat pump.
