An air handler is the indoor 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 around the ducts of your house. The air handler utilizes the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, together with other components. When the weather is warm, the air handler flows air through your home, which helps uphold adequate comfort levels within your home.
