Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are acquainted with the model of an air handler, you may not know if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Frederick. We’re here to help you learn what an air handler is and if one would aid 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 title 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 contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other workings. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps uphold proper comfort levels inside your home. Some types of air handlers even use heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.

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