Air Quality

Maybe you’ve been informed about air handlers. Maybe you haven’t. Even if you are aware of the concept of an air handler, you may not understand if you could use one to enhance your home comfort in Shreveport. We’re here to help you recognize what an air handler is and if one would help 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 contains the evaporator coil and the blower in your ventilation system, along with other components. When the weather is hot, the air handler circulates air through your home, which helps maintain adequate comfort levels within your home. Some forms of air handlers even have heat strips to bolster the heating power or your heat pump when the weather gets calmer.

A well maintained and functioning air handler can help lower utility bills and a deliver a longer natural life for your split system or heat pump.
