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 within 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 flows air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels in your home.
