Maybe you’ve heard of 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 enhance your home comfort in Chelan and Wenatchee. We’re here to help you understand 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 name 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, along with other components. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps maintain correct comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even have heat strips to boost the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets colder.
A correctly maintained and operating air handler can help decrease utility bills and a provide an extended lifetime for your split system or heat pump.
