An air handler is the interior unit of a split-system air conditioner or a heat pump. Basically, 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, in conjunction with other workings. When the weather is hot, the air handler pushes air through your home, which helps maintain proper comfort levels within your home.
