What is an Air Handler?
The air handler an essential part of your air conditioning and heating system that holds the fan. The fan distributes the heated and cooled air throughout your home.
There are three main types of heating and cooling systems in the Tucson area. The type of systems affects where your air handler is located.
- Split air conditioner and furnace:
In this setup, you have an outside air conditioning unit (likely on the ground outside your home). It also has a furnace inside your attic or a closet. The air handler is part of the furnace.
- Split heat pump:
This is much the same as the first, but there is no furnace. Your outside unit is responsible for both heating and cooling your home. However, there is still an air handler in your attic or closet. It distributes the heated and cooled air throughout your ducts.
- Packaged (rooftop) air conditioning and heating:
In this situation, the air handler is packaged with the outdoor unit into one piece.
Why Do You Want a Money-Saving, Variable-Speed Air Handler?
You probably know that stop and start traffic makes your vehicle uses more gas. The same is true of your air conditioner and heater. Standard handlers cause your HVAC conditioning system to cycle on and off frequently. That will ruin your system’s efficiency.
A variable speed handler adjusts the speed to the needs of your system. It runs longer and more efficiently.
