What Is an Air Handler?
Many homeowners haven’t heard of an air handler. They’re typically ideal for heat pump HVAC systems, since they lack the components necessary for managing airflow. An air handler quite literally “handles” this instead, using a blower motor and evaporator coil to circulate comfort throughout your home.
Models often resemble a furnace but can be placed in tighter spaces. And unlike a furnace, your air handler can provide both warm and cool air. Make sure your air handler is the appropriate size before its installed. A heat pump isn’t always enough for larger homes, so you want the air handler to make up the difference. If a model is too big for your needs, you could end up with a less efficient HVAC setup.

Advantages of Installing an Air Handler
The right air handler can make a noticeable difference. If you’re considering installing one, here are some of the most popular benefits.
1. Perfect for Mild Climates
Since a heat pump only transfers heat instead of generating it, an air handler is ideal for temperate climates. You can make do with less equipment, which means fewer HVAC expenses.
2. Quiet Operation
Unlike clunky furnaces, an air handler produces minimal noise. Sound-conscious homeowners will appreciate how quietly an air handler is when running.
3. Efficient circulation
Having dedicated circulation equipment ensures your home’s airflow is robust enough for your needs. A well-installed heat pump and air handler can provide some of the most efficient climate control available!
4. Reduced energy consumption
Generating heat or conditioning air uses a lot of energy. An air handler-based system requires much less fuel to maintain pleasant temperatures. This can result in lower monthly bills, and a lot of savings over a system’s life span.
